Subject: RE: BS: the funny business of names
Hey jeff....Thanks for bailing me out on Sharon Peters. Sorry gang for the confusion but, jeff said, consider the source.

I used to enter contests with addresses of my friends and hokey sexual names. Many of these were no more than ways to collect names for mailing lists. I have a friend (and he is still a friend believe it or not) who still gets loads of junk mail addressed to Hugh G. Rection.

I entered a parts store contest because our rep had left us about 50 entry forms....and naturally I used some for us and the rest for other folks using their addresses and the funky names. My rep knew me well and when the the president of his company drew the name for third place (Connie Lingus) he just said it was one of his customers. The pres never got the joke and made several references to "Connie."

Spaw--and please don't make me explain either of these
