    Whats in a name...

    This was in the metro this morning...

    A New Zealand judge has chastised two parents for calling their 9-year-old girl Talula Does The Hula From Hawaii.

    Family Court Judge Rob Murfitt cited a list of unfortunate names that he said were embarrassing or made children seem foolish among their peers.

    Some names, including Fish and Chips, Yeah Detroit, Stallion, Twisty Poi, Keenan Got Lucy and Sex Fruit, were blocked by registration officials, he said
    Metro.co.uk

    But others were allowed, including Number 16 Bus Shelter, Benson and Hedges (twins)
    Benson and hedges parents must have had a great sense of humour!
