New Zealand, a country best known for setting off a massive string of explosives that separated the land mass from Australia and floated out to sea, is having 'odd' name troubles. You probably remember the kiwi couple that was in the news awhile back when it was decided they couldn't name their son 4Real or OMGWTFBBQ. Well now more New Zealand couples are having trouble, mostly because they keep trying to name their children stupid shit.
A judge in New Zealand made a young girl a ward of court so that she could change the name she hated - Talula Does The Hula From Hawaii. Judge Rob Murfitt said that the name embarrassed the nine-year-old and could expose her to teasing.
You think? Not to mention it would take six years to write your name on the top of every homework assignment. Officials have blocked Yeah Detroit, Stallion, Twisty Poi, Keenan Got Lucy, Sex Fruit, Fat Boy, Cinderella Beauty Blossom, and Fish and Chips (twins), but allowed Violence, Number 16 Bus Shelter, Midnight Chardonnay, and Benson and Hedges (twins).
What the hell are they putting in the water supply in New Zealand? This is ridiculous. Number 16 Bus Shelter? You can imagine where that poor bastard was conceived. Violence? Sex Fruit? Listen, I've got two kids, and it wasn't hard giving them normal freaking names: BOOM! and 1.21 Jigowatts. BOOM!'s the boy, and that's what I call him unless I'm talking about him to someone else. In that case he's The UPS Man's.
