Staff members at Charity Hospital in New Orlelans swear that young resident doctors have often suggested that young mothers name their daughters "Latrina."

This story has been told for years; I was never sure whether to believe it until I saw a fast-food cashier wearing the nametag "Latrina." So, it did happen, at least once if not more often.

Bill D, How dare you suggest that the great Topaz could not write anything but brilliant stuff!
Here's one of my favourites: -

The Moon
Beautiful Moon, with thy silvery light,
Thou seemest most charming to my sight;
As I gaze upon thee in the sky so high,
A tear of joy does moisten mine eye.

Beautiful Moon, with thy silvery light,
Thou cheerest the Esquimau in the night;
For thou lettest him see to harpoon the fish,
And with them he makes a dainty dish.

Beautiful Moon, with thy silvery light,
Thou cheerest the fox in the night,
And lettest him see to steal the grey goose away
Out of the farm-yard from a stack of hay.

Beautiful Moon, with thy silvery light,
Thou cheerest the farmer in the night,
and makes his heart beat high with delight
As he views his crops by the light in the night.

Beautiful Moon, with thy silvery light,
Thou cheerest the eagle in the night,
And lettest him see to devour his prey
And carry it to his nest away.

Beautiful Moon, with thy silvery light,
Thou cheerest the mariner in the night
As he paces the deck alone,
Thinking of his dear friends at home.

Beautiful Moon, with thy silvery light,
Thou cheerest the weary traveller in the night;
For thou lightest up the wayside around
To him when he is homeward bound.

Beautiful Moon, with thy silvery light,
Thou cheerest the lovers in the night
As they walk through the shady groves alone,
Making love to each other before they go home.

Beautiful Moon, with thy silvery light,
Thou cheerest the poacher in the night;
For thou lettest him see to set his snares
To catch the rabbit and the hares.

William Topaz McGonagall

Profound stuff eh!

Andy Mitchell

The Tito Gobi of the Balls Pond Road.

A title which I aquired (it actually started off as The Maria Callas . . .) from the Late John (Whiskers) Barker of Crayfolk/Dartford/Farningham fame. "Gastove" (Dave Freeman) also owes his name to John.

Carrie Hunt? Ummm...

"Sea Hunt"?

Look, that's unfortunate, but "Mike Hunt" is far more unfortunate...

So is "Don Duck", and I knew a guy in Scarboro with that name in the early 70's. He wouldn't let anyone call him "Donald" for some reason... :-)

Speaking of which, there was a real live folksinger named "Duck" Donald. He used to play with Cathy Fink. No joke.

There's also the famous Toronto musician/painter Joe Mendehlson, who changed his name to Toronto Joe Mendhelson, then Sophisto Joe Mendehlson, and finally Mendehlson Joe! And no, I don't know where the damned "h" goes in "Mendehlson". I'm not even sure if there is an "h". His art stinks, but it's better than Bob Dylan's...at least I think it is. Well, it's almost a dead heat.

Dylan's a way better songwriter.

It never dawned on a lot of us til one day my best friend's Dad heard the name and said, "What? Sharon Peters? Jesus, what is that? Some kind of bathroom game?" Cracked us up then!

Have you never heard of "Spoonerisms" DaveO?

Something most English and Aussies seem to know about.

The Rev Spooner was an English clergyman whose dull sermons were enliven by his regular verbal mistakes such as

"I have in my breast a half formed wish"

coming out as

"I have in my breast a half warmed fish"

I was drawn into the site via my daughter, and I took a nickname because I was under the impression that it was the norm. Basically, I think I'd be a bit more comfortable under my real name.   However, I can't now change to my own without giving away part of hers..... maybe she wouldn't mind. Those who know us, know our real names anyway. Anyone who wants to know can ask.

I believe that John Wayne changed his name from Marion Morrisson.
Well, who could blame him: If I was called Morrisson, I would change it too.
Anyway I started off in Mudcat by using my day name, Andy Mitchell, but I thought I was getting more into the spirit of things by using a Mudcat name.
Anyway, John, I missed the thread that made you decide to change your name. Which one was it.
Cheers
Andy
