This week’s comic explores the absurdity of names. Names represent our identity, but what happens when you are stuck with an unfortunate name that results in snickers and ridicule? I remember in middle school there was a girl in my gym class who had the unfortunate last name of “Zass.” While by itself it’s perfectly fine, coupled with a first name, it becomes the butt of jokes (pun intended). “Rita Zass? Is Rita Zass here? Has anyone seen Rita Zass?” Years later at the Price is Right, I met number of people with names ranging from Free Spirit Joseph to Remington Steele.
What’s the most absurd name you’ve come across?
