    I work in a pediaric hospital and I have seen and heard quite a few things, the first patient I ever took care of was named Tequilla Sunshine, and I also took care of a set of twins named Butch and Cassidy.

    The craziest name I ever heard. I couldn't believe this when I read it in the paper. The mother should have been shot. Are you ready? Shi' thead. Can you imagine the teasing that child will get.

    A couple of days ago, I had a pt name her son Angus. I assume that she wants her child to get beat up in school. I just hope that he doesn't turn out to be a cattle rancher!!!
