Day 103--- Junior Bacon Cheeseburger the III...


Well hello there people... by the time you read this it will be Thanksgiving here in the states. So happy turkey day to those that are celebrating with me... It is a great day to be thankful for all sorts of great things in our lives... all the f words, family, friends, food..... I'll leave the rest up to you... Since today is the day before Thanksgiving I've decided to do a blog about a group of people that I am not thankful for, and no offense if you fall into this category, but I just don't get the people who name their kids after themselves...

This whole process is a joke to me, are you really lacking that much creativity that you just want to rename your kid with your name and slap a Jr. on the end... You know they make books upon books these days for idiots like you who cant think of anything... Oh, and didn't think those of you who slap a II or a III on the end are free from my ridicule... You guys are just as bad, this isn't medieval times, you are not a king, your son is not a prince. This to me is something that just red flags white trash, Bobby Jr., Billie Joe III, names used to be passed on to represent royalty, now they are passed on so that the crack head parents don't forget their kids names... "Yeah, well that's Becky Sue the III there, and that younger one there, that's Becky Sue the IV, it just cuts down all the confusion...". I don't know how or when this transition from royalty to pooralty occurred, I'm gonna have to dig back into my history archives to find out how we went from King George III to Ken Griffey Jr...

The whole junior/senior thing is pointless anyways, you know everyone is just gonna call that kid Jr. his whole life anyways, you may as well have just named him that... You know no one ever called Ken Griffey Jr. by Ken, it was always Griffey Jr. or Jr. or the last baseball player to not take steroids... I don't know if this trend is as predominant in other countries and cultures as it is here, but I hope that they have a grip on it... Come to think of it though probably not, with Mohamed being the most popular name in the world by far, I imagine that they probably just name 4 out of 5 of their kids some form of this name... I get it though, its catchy, its godly, its strong... I imagine that's why there are 19,000 Jesus's bussing tables and mowing lawns these days as well... (Don't be offended by the facts people)... Priests touch boys, Mexicans mow lawns, Asians do nails, Australians ride kangaroos and play with dingos, Black people don't tip, Canadians play hockey and send us annoying musicians but have stellar health care, the french don't shave, and Americans are fat, greedy, and in debt. It's life. Wow, got off track there, I had to make sure I included as many people as I could though.

There is one other category of people who do this type of stuff, but they think they are sneaky with it... I call it the name-morphers, actually I've never called it that before, but it seems fitting, and you believed me so just go with it... These are the people who will not necessarily name their kid after them, but they will somehow morph their name into another name and give that to the kid, Deion Sanders has Deondra, Whitney Houston has Crackhed, and the winner is Jermaine Jackson with Jermajesty... The sad thing is, that only one of those was made up... Now we knew the Jacksons were weird, but you'd think there would be a normal one in the bunch... Clearly not Jermaine... I don't know though... maybe this isn't so bad... I could name my kid Ryandra, he wouldn't get his ass kicked...

I've never been able to get over the fact that somebody actually went through life called Jermajesty. *shudder* My kid wouldn't be too bad! Emil..io - I think that's even a real name!

Here's a little side note for you.. in a racing category here Dick Johnson was (and is) a legend. Now his son Steve drives and even though they're names are completely different, he still gets referred to as "Junior"

And yes, I have a problem with people naming themselves after their kids. If you have a family name though that gets passed down from first born to first born as a middle name, buried where nobody can see it but the family all know it's there, I have no problem with that. (And no, my family doesn't have one, but some of my clients do and I think it's kind of cool)

LMAO!!!!

I can't stand hearing jr's or the third's of something.

I "love" to listen to parents explain their children's weird name. It's like they want to be all mystical and sh*t.

I personally dont like ghetto names or names that are intertwined between both parents names. Thats annoying. and sometimes boring... Personally I like names with meanings. I know what I would like to name my children. As for passing on names... I would give my child my dads name or husbands name as a middle name not as their first. Shoot me if I allow them to do that to my babies.
