Elsewhere, on the board here, the transmogrification of certain word orders and parts reminded me of an ol' buddy-roo of mine back in college... his name???... Mark Harder... of course we called him "Hard Marker"... not out of cruelty (evil grin), it just seemed to *work so well.

Isn't this the basis for most 'shaggy dogs'???

Hint, hint...

Along the same lines, I knew a Naval aviator by the name of Kent Clark. His nickname (and voice callsign) was Mansuper.

i often have fun skewering commercial names --

any one remember the old cafeteria chain? famous coin operated food and their nickel cup's of coffee served from lion heads urns-- and poor lonely hearts?

Horny and Hardups

or the Master baker famous for Baba au rhum, who lent his name to a cake mix company?

Drunken Hines

not quite the same but along the same lines

any UKns know those bastions of underage booze adventures
Quite Frightening, Diamond Shite and Chunderblurred

all guaranteed to put you at the wheel of the big white bus/ worship at the altar of Armitige Shanks/ send you to bed with a techicoloured yawn/ make one kneel down and pray to the porcelein goddess--I think I've got lost in a tangent here, I'll stop now.
