I've always been fascinated by the sounds of words, the sillier the better. And so it's no shock that I've always admired comedic minds like those of Groucho Marx and W.C. Fields. Fields, in particular, was a genius at coming up with bizarre names for the characters in his films. Sneed Hern is a favorite. And of course the famous Carl LaFong (yes, Catherine, that was me). And check out the film "It's A Gift" (1934). It's a classic.
But since once again I have no bilious invective to deliver, I thought I'd share a few of the silly names I've concocted over the years, along with a brief description of the characters I think best fit them.
Dick Diddletwat (the cruel incompetent boss at whatever mind-flattening job you happen to have)
Simon Drizzleschitz (expert on somethingorother; probably a friend of Diddletwat's)
Benton Seamonkey (news correspondent; there really is a guy with a name that's close)
Pettigrew D. Birdsong (Southern gentleman; not too silly but it has a ring to it)
Trina Gonnafuckyaova (tennis starlet and Playboy model)
Woozy Poopatannakool (child mathematics prodigy)
Feel free to add to the list.
Slang of the day: screaming meemies: delirium tremens.
