Then again, my name is Broomhilda, so people in glass houses and all that...

do you go by Hilda? My name is actually Canaan so were in the weird name club



I really like the name canaan. Hip, biblical, and literati (e. e. cummings).

My name isn't Broomhilda, you silly goose.

It wasn't an outwardly unfortunate name, but Myron Cope struggling with the first name of former Saints DB Fahkir Brown during a radio broadcast of a Steelers game was one of the funniest things I've ever heard.

The idea that the principal or the teacher couldn't take two seconds to Google the guy is absurd.

"Not gonna waste my time with that" I think was the response if memory serves...of course, this was a long time ago, way before the internet apparently and before Fukudome played Major League Baseball :lol:
