You won’t believe these people’s names…

Funny names. Everyone likes funny names. Here are eight of the very best….

8. Chris P. Bacon

We’ll get off to a gentle start with Chris P. Bacon, a film music composer. Look’s like he’s had a streak of smokin’ film successes. No? Please yourselves…

7. Yolanda Squatpump

The Usual Suspects
The Usual Suspects was an awesome film. You may think it owes its success to the twisting plot, Kevin Spacey’s performance, or maybe Bryan Singer’s tight direction. But you’d be wrong.

Look carefully, and you’ll see it’s really down to the makeup artist.

So thankyou, Yolanda Squatpump, for doing such a bang-up job.

6. Tokyo Sexwale

No, this isn’t the name of a Japanese monster film. Tokyo Sexwale is a South African politian. He probably has some killer chat-up lines.

5. Dr Richard Chopp

Dick went to medical school and then specialized in Urology. He now does a lot of vasectomies.

4. Dr Lisa Minge, Gynaecologist

If you’re British, then Lisa Minge has truly reached the pinnacle of nominative determinism with her chosen career. Lisa, a nation salutes you.

Of course, if you’re not British, then I’m afraid I must send you to the Urban Dictionary for edification.

3. Fonda Dicks

Fonda played basketball for the state of Iowa in 1972.

I wonder if Dr Minge was present at Fonda’s birth….?

“Mr Dicks! I’m pleased to say your wife has given birth to a healthy girl – congratulations! What will you call her?”

“Dr Minge, I’ve thought about this a long time – we’ll call her Fonda. It’s a family tradition.”

“Mr Dicks, if I may…have you considered how that sou-”

“Silence Dr Minge! My great grandmother was Fonda Dicks. My grandmother was also Fonda Dicks. My wife is Fonda Dicks too. So I’ll be damned if my daughter isn’t Fonda Dicks too”

2. Lori Rectanus

Lori writes books about the dangers of hazardous materials. I can imagine how her calls with proofreaders went…


“Hi Lori, we have your books ready to go to print. I just wanted to check on your surname…what I have here is wrecked- oh, I see. You get this all the time. Yes. No, I don’t think it’s funny. We’ll get that to printers today”

1. Fanny Chmelar

If you’ve never seen this clip from British game show The Chase, you’re in for a treat. If you *have* seen it, then watch again as host Bradley Walsh tries in vain to keep his composure… donates all revenue to charity. You can help simply by sharing this page!
