What a name...

You know I read the news everyday. It's just something I like to do inbetween the work. Helps keep me focused by distraction... or something.

Anyway, it's not a shock that you see weird names in the news. It's just one of those odd but reoccuring things that makes the news that much more amusing.

Now, this particular paragraph was about something very very serious, threats at other schools related to the VT shootings. I'm not making fun of that at all. I'm making fun of the quoted guy's name...

"A student found the threatening note at about 12:15 p.m. on a toilet paper dispenser. It stated, "the shooting would start at Great Falls High at 12:30 and it would be worse than Virginia Tech," Assistant Superintendent Dick Kuntz said. He said it was a hoax."

You know, it's bad enough when your last name is Kuntz. WHY oh WHY did someone name him DICK? And if his real name is Richard, WHY oh WHY does he call himself Dick?? Though I s'pose "Rich Kuntz" isn't that much better.

And that he's an assistant superintendent for a public school system, that's just asking for all kinds of ridicule...
