WTF?! // WE CAN’T MAKE THIS STUFF UP. BUT THEIR PARENTS DID…

July 24, 2008

We are usually not the “copy and paste” type of blog. We actually like writing our own stuff for other people to copy/paste. But, every now and then you come across something that you just can’t help but hit Apple-C, Apple-V. This is one of those moments:

(CNN) — A New Zealand judge has made a 9-year-old girl a ward of the court so that her name can be changed from Talula Does the Hula From Hawaii, the country’s national news agency reported Thursday.

Family Court Judge Rob Murfitt listed a series of unusual names that New Zealand parents had given their children, and said he was concerned that such strange monikers would create hurdles for them as they grew up.

“It makes a fool of the child and sets her up with a social disability and handicap,” the New Zealand Press Association quoted the judge as saying.

Among the names Murfitt cited: twins named Benson and Hedges — after a brand of cigarettes; Violence; and Number 16 Bus Shelter.

Some parents had named children after six-cylinder Ford cars, the news agency reported.

The Registrar General of Births, Deaths and Marriages said in a statement that it had rejected names including Fish and Chips, Yeah Detroit, Stallion, Twisty Poi — a staple food in Polynesian cuisine — and Sex Fruit.

A lawyer for Talula Does the Hula From Hawaii said the girl is so embarrassed by her name that friends know her as “K.”

Last month, a judge in the U.S. state of Illinois allowed a school bus driver to legally change his first name to “In God” and his last name to “We Trust.”

But an appeals court in the state of New Mexico ruled against a man — named Variable — who wanted to change his name to a two-word phrase that contains a four-letter expletive and expresses opposition to censorship.”

WTF // SO YOU’RE VISITING COMPTON?

March 7, 2008

So this may be one of the weirdest things we’ve seen on You Tube lately. After watching it with a combination of “What the Fuuuuuuuuck?!?” and laughter, we caught ourselves singing the catchy little song and decided we had to post it. It seems that in preparation for a visit to the ol’ U.S. of A, the Japanese are really preparing for all aspects of American culture. We’re hoping that in Volume II, you learn how to correctly hold your “gat” at the 45 degree “gangsta” angle, or maybe the proper tipping procedure at a strip club. Enjoy.
