    Be careful what you ask for…..

  2. bobbo, are we Men of Science, or Devo says:

    The c was for coffee….right?

    Other than bobbo, no one can spell the rest of my name or pronounce my surname either….4 letters.

    I say: so what. English is like that. Always amusing to hear/watch someone take offense on others mispronouncing their names.

    I think Sat Night Live has done about 8 skits on that.

    • SNL says:

      Turd Ferguson.

      Funny name, funny hat.

      • bobbo, are we Men of Science, or Devo says:

        Yes, that was good. I always remember the guy who wanted to change his name.

        It was something like “Shit Lips Williams” and he wanted it to be for instance “Shit Lips Jones.”

        Humor is funny….. why?

    You don’t give them your real name?!

    • Bada Bing says:

      Yeah, I like to use Mike Hunt.

      “Latte up for Mike Hunt… has anyone seen Mike Hunt?”

      • McCullough says:

        Ohhhhh! Boom ShakaLaka!

      • jpfitz says:

        Nasty boy!

      • ± says:

        In high school, a certain substitute teacher would take role by passing around a clipboard and have everyone sign it and then read off the names consecutively while checking them off . I once signed Dick Hertz like six blank spaces ahead of my real name. ———- And yes, after saying the name Dick Hertz several times with no response, she did ask “whose Dick Hertz” while (I could see) simultaneously understanding that she had been had. Almost no one got it and she moved on while I successfully stifled my mirth.

    J. Robert Oppenheimer
    L. Ron Hubbard
    T. Boone Pickens
    J. Edgar Hoover

    Don’t ever bestow a name like the above upon your newborn kid.  Mom & dad made that mistake with me.  Clerks & such are always trying to “correct” my name for me.  They seem genuinely unable to grasp the concept of a first initial.  They suppose there must be some error & move the initial to the middle where it’s “supposed to be.”  Or they insist on spelling out all three names on documents.  Thus I am saddled with, and often addressed by, a first name that was never intended to be used.

    • bobbo, are we Men of Science, or Devo says:

      T. Olly Bong would be a bitch of a name.

      Condolences! You could change it now….. if you really cared.

      I say: Give it an F. It is all folly after all.

    • Greg Allen says:

      I had a friend named Harry Dick and, honestly, I deleted his emails for the longest time before realizing they were legit.

    • McCullough says:

      I worked at a VA records center on a work-study program while in college on the GI Bill. The records went back to the 1800’s. I got a kick out of some of the names on the files I pulled on a daily basis:

      Mary Christmas
      Saint Christopher Christian
      Harry Butt
      Wendell and Orville Fagg (would have loved to be in boot camp with these guys)

      and my personal favorite:

      Horatio Alouicious T. Ford III

  5. NewFormatSux says:

    That is just Coffee at Right Kelvin

  6. Guyver says:

    Another victim of government-run education. Can’t stop laughing indeed.

  7. bobbo, are we Men of Science, or Devo says:

    You know…………..the barrista wasn’t asked a complicated question like the square root of 9 or who the Vice Presnedent is.

    Most likely: noisy, busy, lots of strange goofy names given. Bet he heard “ark with a C” and kept production levels high.

    Slow the line up by seeking clarity…. or just get it close enough?

    I too would smile.

  8. McCullough says:

    So, did you get the Venti or the Large? But there is no Large at the ‘Bucks. And yet I insist on a large anyway.

    On the very rare occasion that I go to McDonalds, when I order a drink they ask me if I want the medium or the large, and I say I’d like a small please.

    But there is no small, no small at all.

    • bobbo, are we Men of Science, or Devo says:

      There is a pikture of his kup. Looks like a small to me.

  9. Marc Terrell says:

    I, too, spell my name with a “c” and I always tell people “with a ‘c.'” Thinking on this subject, I don’t know why I do this. Does it matter? I guess it has for all of my 60 years. Interesting. Don’t even get me started about getting people to pronounce my name correctly (will rhyme with ‘sterile’). I have pretty much given up. I have worked for the same organization for 15 years and most people still mispronounce my name.

  10. Greg Allen says:

    “Chuck with an F”

    • bobbo, are we Men of Science, or Devo says:

      Greg==thats a funny. A bit racy for you…. but still funny.

  11. The Monster's Lawyer says:

    Hey Mark, a little douch-baggery on your part. Who gives a shit what she writes on your cup as long as it’s understood to be yours.

  12. NewFormatSux says:

    People are missing the point. These servers tend to be people with degrees in literature.

    Cark means ‘a burden’

  13. Wise Guy says:

    Next time, tell it your name is “Pen-ayes” and it’s spelled: P-E-N-I-S.

  14. jpfitz says:

    Here’s one to try and see the results. Say Marc with an x.

  15. bobbo, are we Men of Science, or Devo says:

    Besides having your name spelled wrong by a stranger, there are other carks that afflict mankind:

    My gut tells me his likelihood perscentages are way low, but the list is interesting otherwise.

    I do see a telling dividing point. Most are unintended consequences that might never arise or are out of our control. BUT AGW IS UNAVOIDABLE …. if we don’t act.

    You do now what UNAVOIDABLE means ….. don’t you?

    Cark Me!

  16. t0llyb0ng says:

    Her butt were so exquisite
    One had to kneel & kiss it
    & her cunt
    Were a wondermunt

  17. bobbo, are we Men of Science, or Devo says:

    Congrats: a full seven days with no Original Post. I think that is a record………….to my recollection without study.

    Meanwhile………. the oceans keep rising:

    Sea Levels Along The Northeast Rose Almost 4 Inches In Just 2 Years: Study

    ……That would be a REAL cark.

    • Tech Lover says:

      Meanwhile… how about Dvorak’s PC article:

      “The Mandatory Dash Cam Is Coming… and it can’t come soon enough.”


      What’s next? Streaming dashcams. The government tapping into any dashcam, anytime.

      Even Jason Bourne won’t be able to elude authorities.

      Privacy loss? Yes, including the right to break nuisance laws undetected.

      Of course, I idea of catching a guy on a speeding crotch rocket does sound satisfying.

    • NewFormatSux says:

      I think it was Bryony Worthington who once asked a bunch of environmentalists what they would happen if a fairy could wave a magic wand and do away with the warming effects of carbon dioxide. Would they be happy for mankind to continue to burn fossil fuels?

      Actual sea level rise is a few mm per year, and has been rising for centuries.

    • NewFormatSux says:

      >bobbo says I think, that is a record

  18. NewFormatSux says:

    Strange Cark would have no opinion on the secret Internet regulations that Obama is passing.

  19. NewFormatSux says:

    There was a site may years ago that made fun of Jordon while promoting Allen Iverson, the Knicks and Super John Starks. It was mocking ‘Jordon jockers'(think of Percel and Elon Musk)

    It had a FAQ, and one of them was jordon is spelled with an a not an o.

    Answer: Then it would be Jardon!
