Dom Perignon Champagne's mom is Perfect Engelberger?
 
2006-05-25 10:57:18 PM
Why doesn't the article make light of the victim's name? That's what the news is all about. Sure, the man's dead, the killer's convicted: it's time for one of those feel-good "mock the dead" moments.

from TFA: "investigators found letters and rap lyrics in Smith's jail cell in which he compared himself to Lee Malvo, the then-17-year-old convicted in the Washington, D.C.,-area sniper shootings in 2002 that left 10 people dead."

and they are talking about EASING the current admission policies?! Only good things can come from that.

I wonder if they know that "marksman" isn't a job in the Navy?

If you are 25..what is the point of saying 84 to life. 84 years is pretty much all he would ever hope to have left.
 
2006-05-26 04:40:14 AM
Whatever. Dom Perignon is overrated anyway.
 
2006-05-26 05:41:34 AM
Lawrence Christopher Smith, 25, was convicted March 30 of first-degree murder in the Nov. 26, 2004, death of Dom Perignon Champagne in southeast San Diego.
Still, WTF?

I like how he added "Champagne" on the end of his name, to clarify. I would have thought he was talking about Dom Perignon, the carpet cleaner.

Thank god it wasn't Krug....

Please... this is ridiculous.
 
2006-05-26 05:44:48 AM
You name your kid that... you are asking to have him shot at.

Just ask my five children: Playboy Magazine, American Cheddar, Fizzy Cola, Smoking Cigarette and Junior. I blame myself everytime they get beat up at school.

Justice would better have been served if Navy Marksman Smith had popped Dom Perignon Champagne's friggin parents for naming him that.
 
2006-05-26 05:56:02 AM
did the blood rushing out of Dom's body tickle his nose?

Commander Bond gets 84 for popping a '46 Dom Perignon? But he has a license to kill!

Dom Perignon Champagne might have raised a few eyebrows on a job application. Some names seem like a ticket to future difficulty. I'll give you that people don't have any choice in who their family is, or what they are named. I have a friend whose frist two birth names were Harley Davidson. As soon as he turned 18, he had it legally changed to "David". Great guy, but he hated that name.
 
2006-05-26 06:07:42 AM
Speaking of strange names I met a girl from Texas once whose name was "Female" she pronounced it like "fem all E". Her father spoke no english at the time of her birth and messed up the birth certifigate.
 
2006-05-26 06:12:11 AM
"He left behind his wife, Champipple, and two children, Maddawg and Knight Trayne."

So, I guess he was really using his military skills as a marksman to shoot into another car next to him. Besides, isn't Marksman the lowest rating in qualifying? Marksman, then Expert, right?
 
2006-05-26 06:15:03 AM
Thread over. Pole of Justice wins. Very funny, man.
 
2006-05-26 06:15:58 AM
Marksman in the Navy? Aint no such animal.
1 dead gang banger, and 1 in prison for life. I love a story with a happy ending.
 
2006-05-26 06:18:42 AM
It's still a horrible name to give your child, but Dom Perinon Champagne still > Bluebell Madonna.

The worst Dom Perignon will have is suspicion of being a gangster. Blueballs, however, might have a harder time.

/firmly believes that a child's name is NOT the appropriate medium for a wacked-out parent to show his/her creativity. Asshats.

Probably for parole reviews.

Marksman, then Sharpshooter, then Expert. Marksman is the lowest.

With names like "Dom Perignon Champagne" and "Perfect Engleberger", you can be assured that they'd rise to the highest social circles (or at least Dom aspired to be the latest product-themed rapper, like Ginuwine or Timbaland).

God dom the violence!!! This thread may need to be submitted to Darwin awards.

You can never go wrong with a name from the Bible.

That's why I'm naming my firstborn son, "Ezekial"

No, not really.
 
2006-05-26 06:35:49 AM
A friend of mine named his son Colby. His nickname is cheesehead.
 
2006-05-26 06:36:22 AM
It's Ezekiel, HobblingContractor. If you're going to fark up your kid, at least spell his crappy name right.

In my book it was a wasted opportunity.
He should have just iced his mother, Edna Bucket O'Champagne.
 
2006-05-26 06:41:42 AM
It's pronounced "Sham-pagen"

A jury also found Smith guilty of attempted murder for pumping three shots into a cocaine dealer who owed him $80 on Sept. 12, 2004, and possession of marijuana for sale.
___________________________________

Funny? What was the cocaine dealers name? No matter what his name his, what kind of "marksman" pumps three shots into a guy and the guy doesn't die? He must have been practicing before he shot Dom. Does going from 3 shots to 1 shot make him an "expert"?
And if the "marksman" was found quilty for a September killing, how could he kill again in November?
 
2006-05-26 06:46:32 AM
TFA: "... at the time of Champagne was shot.

/Just shakes head.

Don't forget good old Vagina. Although I hear her mother like to call her "Coochie".

Will expose and Egoy:

Oprah's name is really "Orpha". The mid-wife couldn't spell.
Her name didn't hurt her in fact the error was fortuitous. Oprah spelled backwards is Harpo. Orpha would be Ahpro. Who would name a production company Ahpro?
Cool I got to use the word "fortuitous".

I've got three of his brothers on a rack in my cellar, and I fully intend to pop one of them next week.

Come to think of it, I actually have met two women here in CT named "Chandelier".

I wonder if they know that "marksman" isn't a job in the Navy?

Even so, "marksman" is a word in the English language, and even if there is no such title in the Navy, the English word may still apply.

That doesn't mean there are no "marksman" in the Navy.
I qualified marksman with the .45 and the M-16 while in the Navy stationed in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

scottywotty: I qualified marksman with the .45 and the M-16 while in the Navy stationed in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

Are you asking to be teased about qualling marksman, or should I just leave it alone?

Litig8r:

Yeah, I know, marksman is the lowest of quals. I could never do better than marksman with the .45, even with 3 tries. Only had one chance with the M-16.
 
2006-05-26 07:47:45 AM
with a name like that he definately deserved to die.
 
2006-05-26 07:49:59 AM
In this case we must really applaude letting Darwinism take its course.

/doesn't know why we glorify the crass, lowbrow and brutish thing that is gangbanga phenomena

It's ok, I was just having a little fun with ya. I won't even start about what the fact that your qualification was with the .45, rather than 9 says about your age. :)

Marksman = one of them
Marksmen = more than one of them

"Ex Navy Marksmen gets 84 to Life for popping Dom Perignon Champagne" = Stoopid Moran at a keyboard

I hope that clears things up.
