Thread Name: BS: The Mother of all BS threads
Subject: RE: BS: The Mother of all BS threads
Hi! I'm not Filmynecro Ted, but I do have brother named Ted. He even studied guitar and actually knows a G string from a virginal. He and I (and my other brother as well) all share two names out of three (excluding our surname, but if you include that it's three out of four).

Yes, I have a first name and two, count 'em! two!, middle names. So let's see:

Michael Anthony Ralph
Anthony Thomas Ralph
Theodore Ralph Anthony

who had a father named Ralph.

And then there's the next generation:

Ralph Paul (whose maternal grandfather was named...Paul)
Daniel Michael
Theodore Edward (whose initials spell "TED")
Anthony James

so at family gatherings we simply shout "Tony!" or "Ted!" and help of all sorts comes a-runnin'.

Now Daniel Michael attracts cars -- he's been hit three times in the last four years. Ralph Paul is an ex-Marine sentenced to live in Michigan with his wife and kid. Theodore Edward is 10 and living at home; Anthony James is in college starting on a career in either experimental or theoretical physics. Anyway, Ted Ed wants to get a doctorate in dinosaurs, his sister is working on a PhD in microbiology, another sister wants a DFA, and yet aother wants a DVM. Since Anthony James will need a PhD, I think that they should go into business together as Doctor Doctor Doctor Doctor Doctor and Doctor, working in the theoretical veterinary art of microscopic physical dinosaurs, but nobody listens to me.

Daniel Michael wants to be a conservation officer so that he can get paid to go fishing.
