Or maybe his head wasn't screwed on just right. But I think that the most likely reason of all may have been that his heart was two sizes too small.

Mrs. Wormer and I have very strong opinions when it comes to naming babies. The sky's the limit, but we definitely feel that parents have a responsibility not to give children a name that will be a handicap as they go through life. (Actually, our personal bar to naming our kids was "what name would work if they were to become a Supreme Court Justice?" but that's just us.)

That's why I can say without reservation that these parents who named their kid Adolf Hitler can take their whining about the reaction to the name and shove it up their asses. Yes, the name is racist-based, one of their other children's middle name is "Aryan Nation" but naming their kid Hitler is also supremely selfish. As much as parents that we'd like to believe children are an extension of us they're also persons that are going grow up and live their own lives as their own individuals.

Why do anything from the get go to make those lives harder?

"Those people are crazy for naming their kid that," said the parents of little Mountain Dew ESPN Bledsoe.

Those Moon Units are a bunch of stupid Dweezils.

I like that name. Although ESPN CHEETOS FAVRE is a better name IMHO.


Exactly. Where do they get off being indignant? They're lucky child services doesn't take the kid away.

There are survivors of the holocaust still alive. What an insult.


You Zappa-ed me with that response.

Disgusting, isn't it? Do you figure these people are on the no-fly list, have their phones tapped, and are under surveillance by the FIB? Naahh, probably not... not liberal enough.

Now that's just the most fucked up thing I've heard in quite awhile. I'm sure Marge Schott would approve.

Dean Wormer said...


Good question. They seem like grade-a wackos and potential terrorists. But you're right- they come from the wrong end of the political spectrum.


If Marge Schott had thought of it she would of had her own name legally changed to Hitler.

I never thought there could be a name that would make "Moon Unit" or "Moxie Crimefighter" seem like dignified choices...
