'Kill-sin Pimple' may well have been the worst of all time, not excluding such modern exercises in parental stupidity as 'Espn', 'Dweezle', 'Kal-El', and 'North'.

I was always fond of Visit-the-Infidel-with-Explanatory-Pamphlets.

I have to be honest here... My parents were puritans and my full name is Crotchgrabbing Is A Sin And You'll Go To Hell Johnson. When I converted I shortened it.

Speaking of Good Omens, BBC IS APPARENTLY MAKING A MINISERIES.

Also BBC is (apparently) doing a CSI-Crime-of-the-week style show... based off the Ankh Morhpork Watch.

It kills me that BBC America is mostly Star Trek TNG. I'd appreciate a means to get a legit, time shifted BBC feed.

Until then, I am ok living in sin. Seriously, BBC America has become a hollow husk of its former glory.

His name was Praise God Barebone, and whenever he bared his bone, the ladies would say OH GOD!

Fly Fornication Beebody was also the name of a character in Keith Laumer's Time Trap.

None of the Puritan settlers in my family tree have weird names like those. I do have a Hercules, though.

Gaiman was certainly pushing for one, but there's been no news in like a year, sadly.

Just pretend to be British, use a dns spoofing service. Almost everything on the BBC shows up within an hour of airing in the uk on iPlayer.

I wouldn't mind being named "Wrestling". I'd wear tights and holler at everyone in perpetual feigned rage.

Not to despair too much, apparently Pratchett, Gaiman and Pratchett's daughter formed a production company and stated Good Omens would be a TV movie, but even there the only thing we have is a tweet from a year ago.

In my limited experience, people named Happy never are.

cousins named their kid, Christian Virgin Chastity,

and yes, since you asked, she had two kids before she graduated High School.

When reading a list of those who settled in Virginia, double check to ensure you are reading a genealogical document and not a gynelogical document.

The Mormons are STILL coming up with names like this. Only stranger.

The parents who named their son "Tugdick" ought to be arrested for child abuse.

Prince John: Such an unusual name, "Latrine." How did your family come by it?
Latrine: We changed it in the 9th century.
Prince John: You mean you changed it TO "Latrine"?
Latrine: Yeah. Used to be "shiathouse

I think we're all forgetting the old definition of fly (flee).  So really what it's telling you is that the kid runs from sex.

Let the posting of right-wing personalities begin. I'm just too lazy to do anything besides point this out.
