Dixie Normous is an Austin Powers joke.

Mike Litoris?

Unless it's on a driver's license or political campaign sign, I'm calling shens.

Some of those are obvious jokes.  Still if you last name is Sweet and your first name is Richard, why would you go by "Dick"?

What? Are you not familiar with the history of the Von Poopypants family?

It's not that the name is funny, but that the stupid TV people got trolled.

I know they got trolled...but that's just stupid to get trolled by such an obviously fake name.  That's worse than the Korean pilots.

DR. GAY HITLER

Well, his last name was Swett, not Sweet (I'm guessing it's pronounced sweat). But why would anyone shorten Richard to Dick to begin with?

Close your eyes.  Visualize a man holding a snowplow.  And then say his name three times.  It will make more sense then.

There's a guy named "Dick Tips"  here in San Antonio...   He's a funeral director.

I don't watch all the much college football, but according to your link he got an interception in the National Championship Game... so his name was heard at least once on a highly rated nationally televised game.

So who's the Farker who came up with that headline
 
2013-08-21 03:46:07 PM  
Yeah, many or most are probably fake.

Still laughing too hard to finish my work day.

Ask a friend or coworker to do it for you.  Maybe you just need to hear someone else say it.

Do a Google image search on "Gene Masseth".  There was an image posted in a newspaper with two guys digging their car out of a ton of snow.  One named Gene Masseth and the other Haywood Jablome.

Gene Masseth was his real name, and I assume you get the joke about what the second guy offered up as his name.

Somewhere along the way it became a meme to mention "Gene Masseth" (a real name) whenever discussing funny/fake names.

I know someone who went along with a prank caller with a funny name because hey, when are you ever going to get the chance to do that and not get in trouble again?

I worked for a contactor whos name is Dick. I would introduce him to somebody and say'You dont know Dick do you' or I would ask Dick 'Do you have a pencil,Dick'?

Yeah, I've seen that pic/meme. It still isn't funny. You know how some people despise the RIP meme? Yeah, that's me with Gene Masseth.

Thank you for explaining it. I wasn't getting it either as I never saw the source, and I'm usually pretty keen on such humor.

With that said, that's really stupid.

What about Jew Don Boney?

Some say he was named that because while he was being conceived his mother asked his father "Jew don yet?"

Mingon is a popular first name in a slice of the American community.
It is French for petite or dainty.
