Okay, top news in New Jersey is that our governor isn’t running for Prez. Check. I predicted that! But one thing I want to know. Why does anyone name a kid “Chris” when the last name is “Christie?”
There was a local newscaster years ago named “John Johnson,” and I thought the same thing. “Jackie Jackson” of the Jackson Five. “Boutros Boutros Ghali,” former head of the UN.
What’s with the Name-Names? And then there’s the other scourge: names that become weapons against you.
A few days ago, a New York City cop allegedly pepper-sprayed some of the Wall Street protestors. His name? Anthony Bologna. Yep. Tony Baloney. Everybody in New Jersey knows a guy named Tony Baloney. Why can’t expectant Bologna moms resist naming their babies Anthony? There oughta be a law.
