What’s in a Name?

Bill and Joe are just regular guys. John seeks out a hooker. Where I come from, crazy people acted like Mels. Or worse, if you pulled a Hector you got caught jerking off in a public washroom. Where do we get these names? Was there really a retarded Mel or a generic Bill who lacked any discernable features? Hector left an indelible impression in the prurient pea-brains of Essex County high school kids. Stan Rogers, had he lived, would have written a ballad about him. I’ll bet Hector never even did it. I’ll bet he changed his name to Joe.

  1. We never had this at our high school, although there was one guy who had issues like Doug Clarington, although we never called it pulling a Brian.

    Amongst ourselves though we have declared Martin Foreman to be the most boring name you can have. Sorry Martin.
