Gee I don't know if this is funny....
But it's definitely worth a mention!!
We live in Australia and there are hundreds of surrounding land masses collectively called the Pacific Islands. Like any small nation, the people look up to larger countries - money, music, movies...it's all influenced by America and Australia etc.
One day we got word from a pair of friends who had spent time on one of these smaller Islands, they were telling us about this lovely couple they had met and their two daughters. They wanted to give their girls American names and after much consideration decided to go with the names Gonorrhea and Syphilus. No, they didn't have the heart to tell them that they had named their daughters after STDs!
Another pair of names I heard on the radio - twin boys, American.
I can't think of how to write this so it will read as funny as it sounds. The names are pronounced with a French accent Lem-onge-ello and Or-onge-ello. However, they spell their names Orangejello and Lemonjello. Those must have been some hard core drugs they gave that mother as she brought them into the world! Makes you wonder if she lost a bet!
