If you've not heard about them, these are funny gifts for grown ups but actually a good idea to teach kids about germs and such!

Great stocking stuffers. You know, I always thought Serratia would be a pretty name for a girl, and of course Proteus for a boy. My wife disagreed, for some reason.

At Jefferson Davis Hospital in Houston there was a baby named Nosmo King (taken from the No Smoking sign).

I went to school with a girl named Candace Barr... what were her parents thinking? But wait, it gets worse, I'm still getting mail for a previous occupant of my house whose parents named her Lolita. I hope they came from a different culture and had never heard of the book.

I guess that it isn't too early to start thinking about Xmas and what I need. How about a nice moat/lap lane around the house, an 1/8 mile long, heated all year round and requiring no maintenance?

Looking at the microscopic photos each bug is based on, I'm thinking of a new line of neckties....

I had a tennis partner named Penny Dollar and my husband had a teacher in prep school who the students addressed as Master Bates.

Denim? It's kind of a shame they couldn't keep up the adjective thing. :)

We heard of a family that named their children: Chocolate, Vanilla, and Strawberry. Yikes.

We're having a boy soon and we really like the name Sean Thomas, however with the last name Duggan, his initials would be STD. I can't quite get past that. Whaddy'a think?

When I was a resident there was a Dr. Doctor,who of course married a nurse. I also ran into Dr. Colon, Dr. Aftergut (who sadly was not a gastroenterologist), a Dr. Hurt and a Dr. Payne. Finally, there was a Dr. Megahead who was (and still is) a neurosurgeon. He was very smart (perfect board scores), but his head was of normal size.

Thanks so much for this site! My dad has always been a PITA for birthday and Xmas shopping- so hard to find a gift, let alone the PERFECT gift.

However, as a cancer patient the last 6 years and on a feeding tube (rest of his life) he get pneumonia pretty regularly (he's in bed a lot). The "pneumonia" would be a great gift! I can tell him he doesn't have to get it anymore, because I'll give it to him :) I love it. Very cute idea whoever came up with it.
