Friday Flash 55.....



( The new parents can't decide on a name )

He... Reginald, I love the name Reginald.

She... Don't be a Duffer! That's a Barmy name, I prefer Percival.

He... You Bloody Bint! That name went out with the Fox Trot.

She... OK, we'll compromise....
George Alexander Louis Percy-Reggie Mountbatton of Wales,
Prince of Cambridge
Viscount of Cornhole


Picking a name ain't rocket science, I named Reese after a candy bar!
If you or anyone you know has a stupid name or has written a Friday Flash 55
Please come tell The G-Man
I will visit, read, enjoy, comment....Then BOOK!
So from the most nameless host from coast to coast
Have a Kick Ass Week-End!!

I've heard it said they were thinking of calling him George Michael, because he took so long to come out.

A Royal 55, your G-ness. I'm playin', with another inscrutable bit of morbid gibberish:


Moon Eyes

I'll be around to socialize tomorrow night.

Hey, don't knock Percival...that was my father's name (poor boy!) :) I have to say, Viscount of Cornhole has a certain ring to it, G.

Watch it with the cornhole jokes .. I have many relatives and friends in Ohio ,, they get mighty protective of that little game, think they invented it ~ they may have.

What made me laugh today is the jokes that they named their kid after Seinfeld actors/characters.
George (Costanza)
(Jason) Alexander
(Julia) Louis (Dreyfuss).

Thanks for another Friday 55!
Mine's here. :)

Instead of one about a name, how about a one about making decisions? Indecision

Mr. Charleston said...

At least it wasn't Knowshawn Lageorge Jones.

Women... The More I Learn The Less I Know

I am named after the Loch Ness Monster. That's why there are so few sightings of me. But if you are quick, you can get a glimpse today.

Flash 55 - ground zero

You are too clever...so current and in keeping with the times, Galen! I'm still waterlogged here in Mumbai - but, at least, I've found a few good bars and restaurants to keep me happy.

Hahaha. The bad part is I can truly believe such a conversation happened.
The name of the game indeed!

Here's my 5 cents: http://wp.me/pPury-WT

I don't know who to laugh at more - you or Joy! Excellent!

They had nothing to argue about the Queen had the final say. She named him after Longshanks.

edenhills said...

I would hate to have to name a famous baby. Poor kid has a lot of names...

Sorry I missed the fun this week.
