Cruel and Inhuman

So, I'm not a big hockey fan, but TCBIM is (surprise, surprise, he's Canadian - I think it's a law up there). He frequently checks the Boston Bruins website and today, he informs me that the Bruins have signed a new player. His name?

Wacey Rabbit.

I'm not kidding.

Can you imagine going thru life with that name? I think I'd kill my parents if they'd given me that name.

It's a good thing he's a big boy. He can beat the snot out of anyone who mocks him. And I'd imagine there was some mocking going on.

Wacey Rabbit. At least he's not from Walla Walla, Washington.

His name sounds like a Looney Toons character.

Hi there! Thanks for the note on my blog.
I've read a bunch of your posts, both recent and in the archives. This is the kind of blog I love - honest, straight forward and funny with a nice handful of expletives.

Hope your daughter is doing well. Tommy is having a ' good' day - but with diabetes - that can change within 15 minutes.

I hate that.

Nice to ' meet' you too!

Poor guy. I really wonder what was going through his parents minds when they came up with that name.

It's actually a genetic thing, Julia. We Canadians are born knowing (at least) two things: Don't lick the flag pole in January and above all else worship HOCKEY NIGHT IN CANADA!!!

I also immediately jumped to a looney tunes character.

Poor Kid. LMAO

when I was living in North Oxford, Worcester got an AHL hockey team. They had a contest to name the team and I submitted the Worcester Wascally Wabbits.

needless to say, I didn't win.

I once had a bio teacher that was named Dr. Richard Head. Seriously! He was a small guy, too. Poor thing!
