Hail, Conquistador! Son of Gurn Blanston!

Or daughter, for those of us who forget to read the headline and article.

After John Fugelsang, Steve Martin is the least funny comedian I follow on Twitter.

Hope he doesn't mispronounce it, like Procol Harum did.

Ruprecht can be a girls' name right?

I thought he would have given his daughter his own original name of bleebbBBLEEBBblEEbbBBLEEBbb.

/and his brother Hyuh-hyuh-hyuh-hyuh.

Just wait until she has to mambo dogface to the banana patch.

You thought? You thought? Just go! 3 years of nursery school, you think you know it all. Well, you're still wet behind the ears. It's not a subdural hematoma, its EPIDURAL. Goddamn that makes me mad.

abhorrent1: He's almost 70? He looks great!


Yeah.  He's one of those guys (like Woody Allen) that looked old at 30 but then somehow stopped aging and looked absolutely the same for the next 40 years.
 
2013-05-01 08:36:02 AM  
Shouldn't that be "Conquistadora"?

Gender-appropriate suffix FAIL, Steve-o
 
2013-05-01 08:44:03 AM  
Moxie CrimeFighter Jillette , meet Conquistador(a) Martin.

great analogy. i think for Mr.Martin it was the white hair; i don't recall ever seeing him with anything but grey/white.

I assume you're being sarcastic, because the name most certainly was Ruprecht.

Also, I didn't realize until it was on this past weekend that the woman in that scene was Frances Conroy. She's another one who already looked old at 30.
 
2013-05-01 09:22:34 AM  
Shirley, you remember that she calls him Rupert again right after she is corrected.

As somebody who has family that can be traced back to the native population (as far as written records go) and the conquistadors that forced written records (and themselves) upon them, I find this choice of name to be questionable.

Well, if they hadn't come, you wouldn't have the written records.

But kudos to your ancestors for dodging the human sacrifices.  That must've taken a lot of heart.

Is this an obscure reference to a Steve Martin movie that I'm just not getting?  If not, that's a ridiculous line of reasoning as to why a name is questionable.

Conquistadors did bad things to Native American people.  So did Native American people, but, in the interests of "diversity", we assume that Native American people didn't know better (paternalism FTW).

Steve Martin would frown on this threadjacking.

And then play the banjo to get things back on track.

Meh.  She can always go by 'Connie'.

I think he should have gone with Obsequious, Purple or Clairvoyant.
 
2013-05-01 12:21:36 PM  
Hmm..

Wife never looked pregnant.
Only evidence of its existence is an odd announcement.

I'm not saying it's Aliens, but...

"Sarampión"  would have been prettier.

He would have, but he was busy getting that master's degree in geology.
 
2013-05-01 01:40:52 PM  
I wonder if his daughter is small.  Like, really, teeny, tiny small.  Mic-ro-scopic.
 
2013-05-01 02:21:46 PM  
She must be a whiter shade of pale like her old man.
 
2013-05-01 03:20:21 PM  
I guess now he has to buy her a horse. A stallion, to be precise.
 
2013-05-01 04:06:52 PM  
She was raised a poor black child.
