Embarassing Names


Dave, Shelly, and Chainsaw got into a segment this morning about embarassing names. It started as Dave talked about his daughter's class project, where each student was assigned a planet. Allie got Uranus, and the computer broke as she was about to give the presentation, prompting all sorts of comments (from her dad) like "Is Uranus broken?" "You want us to come back when Uranus is better?" He called her up and ragged her a bit more on the air.

Then they moved on to names people actually had that were embarassing. A woman called in whose maiden name was Pettit. Another whose name was Morehead, whose mother's maiden name was Hootery. The guy whose gym teachers were Mr. Bals and Mr. Hiscock.

But I give you the long-time king of embarassing names, Earle Boner. And in the process, I learn that there are two Northbrook Junior Highs. One is in Northbrook, the other (where this guy was from) in Mendota, south of DeKalb. (The scan is from the '92 Illinois Basketball Coaches Association program. Which I have because that was the same year Chris Collins was named Mr. Basketball in Illinois.)
