Thread Name: BS: the funny business of names
Subject: RE: BS: the funny business of names
When I was at school (in Birmingham, England) there was a kid a couple of years below me called Sidney Gidney. A few years ago I was working as a radio producer and the DJ I was producing did a piece on funny names so I told him about poor Sidney and he mentioned it on air. A little later we had a phone call from a guy called Sidney Gidney, wanting to know if it was him I'd been at school with, and it wasn't --- he was ANOTHER Sidney Gidney!
