I am working with a new factory in Vietnam and was asked to send something to Mr. Phock in Ho Chi Minh City.

Out of curiosity, I looked up how to pronounce his name.

This is how my whole Tuesday has been. It’s actually been a decent fire-drill of a day!

More fun to come…maybe after my 5pm meeting with a buyer on the West Coast. Hey…at least I’m having meetings!

I phocking love you,

P.S. I am twelve.

My favorite name I ever saw was a guy with "Hernando H Hernando" and one of the tragedies of my life is never being able to ask him if the H stood for, well, yanno.

I went to school with a guy name Manuel Manuel.

To this day the best name I've ever heard is Boubacar Parpart. Once it gets in my head, it repeats on a loop - and I first heard it 20 years ago.

I just read a recommended article about why adults talk like children. Now I can't remember if it concluded that people wanted the freedom to express their inner creativity or grow up to be the president.

So long as we are being twelve I used to have a customer long ago named "Phat Ho." The joke was, "Good evening Ms. Ho, may I call you Phat?" and so on. If that amuses you, you should know the Denver Broncos football team currently employs a Tight End with the last name Butt.

When I worked at Brookstone in college, we "collected" the most outlandish real-life names based on people who signed up for our catalog. Man, there were some good ones in there!
