Yeah - they should set up a blog if they want to show the world their idiocy.

That's just what I say: "Get a blog, ya loser!"

In tennis, you can't go past:

Hank Fister
Kimiko Date
Dominik Havarti

Also Phil Dent for some reason. Probably coz he was a brut of a man with a big block head and I imagined him going around denting things. Oh, and I find 2 x one syllable names either goofy or male pornstar-ish

*Some names changed slightly for comedy purposes.


You forgot Uncle Gregor.

Vitas Gerulaitis ?

(By the way, while checking my spelling on Wiki - I can't bear to fail on the internet - I saw this - "Gerulaitis died in an accident on September 17, 1994, at age 40. While visiting a friend's home in Southampton, Long Island, a malfunction in the heating system caused odorless, poisonous carbon monoxide gas to seep into the guesthouse where Gerulaitis was sleeping, causing his death. Gerulaitis is interred in Saint Charles Cemetery in Farmingdale, Long Island, New York.")

I had no idea.

I always assumed "a malfunction in the heating system caused odorless, poisonous carbon monoxide gas to seep into the guesthouse" was a euphemism for a life too-well lived. If you get my drift. Nudge, nudge. Snort, snort.

I take your point, I should have guessed - the Motley Crue hair was a bit of a giveaway.

Also:

Giaan Rooooooney
Michael Gross [because it was pronounced Mick Ay Elle]
Archie Duda
Richard Chee Quee
Martin Offiah [because of his nickname - best nickname everr]
Mickey Mantle
Andy Geza Farkas [he was also the first to daub black paint under the eyes]
Paavo Nurmi
Haile Gebrselassie [because I'm a racist and it's an unusual sounding name]

More to come, possibly.

If you get my drift. Nudge, nudge. Snort, snort.

Prezacklty my thoughts at the time! His *ahem* "drinking" buddy, John McEnroe, was particularly cut up about his death IIRC.

Which reminds me of a great story. A mate of mine worked at Burswood Casino for many years. Yannick Noah and John McEnroe went comepletely apeshit nuts during the Hopman Cup ball one year, 1993-ish[?]. Animalistic behaviour that I won't go into. Email me if yer that interested.

Ah... pre Youtube, pre mobile phone camera benders, how we miss you so.

Fuifui Moimoi is one great name when all is said and done. Turning into a top line player too.

There is an American basketballer with a surname of Boozer.

Also isn't there a womans tennis player called Sperm? Couldn't be tossed googling. She beat one of the Williams brothers at Wimbledon a while back then disappeared. Understandably.

In my business I once wrote a refund chq to a woman who had a surname of Cunto. No fvcking joke. Had to sensibly ask if this was a gee up. No it wasn't....


It's Karolina Sprem.

Speaking of Cunto. And tennis. Trabes telling Beauty and Fahry* about Henri Leconte was always worth a giggle.

* Always assumed Fred is Fahry in the same way Ashley Mallett is Rowdy - to wit, he isn't.

Leconte is a synonym of DeGaulle, I think.

And who could forget Guy Forget.

Vagina is very popular in Italy. This is a fun application:

http://www.publicprofiler.org/worldnames/Default.aspx

It gives me the statistics for Vagaina. To wit: roots of Vagina, and the top cities and regions for Vagina. It also tells me what Christian names get the most Vagina [Giovanni, for what it's worth].

...The surname Vagina. What were you thinking?!

The 12 year old bot in me just had a fun 20 minutes.

Francoise Hairy is popular enough in France to come up in the statistics. Wee wee!

A lot of Horny families in Austria and France, it would seem, with patriarch Pierre Horny being the most common.

Australia is home to the 2nd most Pontings, with England just scraping in to get 1st spot. However, Australia is clearly world leader with the goofy surname Pointing.

You are ~350 times more likely to get hold of some Boobys in Australia than any other country. Good to know.

Anal is very popular in India, but there is also an Anal hot spot in Palmerston North for some reason.


Beauty and Fahry - quality TT.

Probably coz he was a brut of a man with a big block head and I imagined him going around denting things.
