    Not at all medical-related, but right now in Alabama, we have a candidate running for State Treasurer whose name is Young Boozer. Apparently Young is a traditional name in the Boozer family, because I understand he is neither the first nor the last to carry it.
    For politicians, West Virginia had Harley Staggers, and then Harley Staggers, Jr. Best name evah for a WV politician, considering how much all of the state's legislators were rumored to imbibe, lol.

    La-a is quickly gaining ground on the Jell-O twins.

    Slight rant: Hey, if you're going to post about La-a, please do yourself a favor and look her up on Snopes.com under "languages." Some of these are quite entertaining, (the recent "Fairy Queen" and my latest favorite read over the last few months: Fartun Gas), but some of these are either put ons by residents or a friend of a friend of a friend or a friend heard it and SWEARS it's true.

    OK, I'll get off my soapbox and maybe I'll stop reading here for a bit as I'm getting to the same point I did when I was pregnant and I threatened in my profile to "Guess My Baby's Name: Female, Orangello, or Lemonjello." I do remember the feeling of wanting to pull my hair out, but I blame the pregnancy hormones.

    Little John...Yes, the patient's first name is Little:grn:. Shithead... all I can say is it may be pronounced Shetheade but the person who named him that is what the word looks like. One of my personal favorites, It has a nice ring to it... Alopecia Areata...Yes, the autoimmune skin condition that results in hair loss/balding
