Stranger than fiction...

OK.. Alex, I am thinkin I must have told you this story already. But for those of you who don't know, there were two brothers who went to my high school who were named (and, NO this is not a joke, and this is the correct spelling)

Lemonjello (pronounced Le MAHN gel oh)
Orangejello (pronounced Or RON gel oh)

OK... now, seriously... if you really wanted to give your kids those names, FINE, but be a little creative with the spelling. The only thing that could have been worse is if you'd used the freakin hyphen before the O.

I mean, what? You were standing in the pantry with a craving for a gelatinous coagulation of the citrus variety and decided it would be a rockin' name for your first born??? And thank heaven for the change in accent on the phonetics, because we wouldn't want anyone to figure out where you got the name from the SPELLING!

For that I only can ask the three lettered question that I will tone down for those of you who may be offended by the f-bomb...


Anyway... Thank heaven they were not triplets, because it could possibly have been Lemonjello, Orangejello and Limejello.... (pronounced Lye MMMMMMMMMMMMM jel oh)
