I have to call a customer about an open trouble ticket. His name is RICHARD PUSEY

How am I supposed to talk to this guy with a straight face?

was listening to NPR this morning. They were doing a story on how far we've come with gay rights ins such a short time. There was a former employee of Harvey Milk's talking about what it was like in San Fran in the 70's.

No joke...his name is Dick Meister. Doubly-unfortunate when you consider that he is a gay dude.

There used to be (still might) be a guy in the Baton Rouge phone book named Craven Moorehead. I've prank called him before.

EDIT: Found him

I or members of my family have known people named:

- Crystal Ball
- Sandy Beach
- Kitty Katz
- Becky Buckles
- Someone with the last name "Cockshit." Don't know the person's first name, also not sure on the spelling (it was probably something totally different like "Coxsit" or "Kochshit," who knows).

I work with a database with a large number of names in it, and there's a lot of funny ones in there, but one of my perennial favorites has to be Dick Allcock.

Definitely a joke. There are two names for phone companies - billing name and listing name. I had a friend who set his listing name as "Dr. Sphincterstein".

[edit]This was 15 years ago - he probably doesn't do it any more.[/edit]
