DonD BS: the funny business of names (104* d) RE: BS: the funny business of names 22 Jun 02


Either I'm losinh it or it was one of those times when I wrote a long post and then lost my connection and it never made it -- but I was sure I had posted this already and it's not there.

Fifty years ago at Harvard there was a professor named Hooton who lost the respect of many of his students when the word got out that he'd named his newborn son Newton. Where is he now? Probably calling himself N. Something Hooton.

A friend of mine did business with a guy whose name was Morrow Tamalo. He (my friend) would go out of his way to phone him when he knew he was out so he could ask the receptionist to speak 'to Morrow Tamalo' and when she exp;ained that he was gone for the day, he'd say, "Oh, I'll speak to Morrow Tamalo tommorow." He thought it was hysterical.
