In the general interests of getting tough on bogans and the causes of bogans (plus giving Kerces an excuse to buy a newspaper each weekend), we of the secret RA server room decided to start a weekly (or at least frequent) column of bogan-tastic baby names found each week in the Canberra Time classifieds.
This weekend I have four for your pleasure.
The first is fairly innocuous, except I think the first name may be made up: Thalie Lisa Shiels.
The second is BrontÃ« Joh Conolly. I did wonder if this new daughter has been named for Sir Joh of Queensland, and the umlaut in BrontÃ« just mystifies me.
The next announcement was headlined “The Jumbo Jett Has Landed”, proudly introducing to the world one Jett Lee Wilmot. Someone’s going to karate lessons as soon as he can walk.
I have saved best for last: Nevaeh Charlize Destanee McLeish. Neveah as in the very popular American name which is Heaven backwards, Charlize like the movie star and Destanee probably because her parents just liked the sentiment. Thank goodness parents can’t do anything about the spelling of their offspring’s surname.
UPDATED: ED – Samuel Gordon Stewart is appalled by the callousness of the monstrous Kerces in publishing this story and is wishing a gruesome fate upon us all:
I generally wouldnâ€™t wish this on people, but I hope RiotACT get sued for thisâ€¦the sooner they take down this monstorous nonsense, the better.
