    Both Odd and Simen (pronounced semen) are common first names in norway, so a combination would be deadly.

      Abit off topic and I'm sure some of you have already spotted this. however, not foreign but IT-names.

      >> World of Wanke <<
      The ruudest names in IT

      Following last week's revelation that the
      man in charge of Microsoft's new Windows
      Server is called Todd Wanke, we bring you
      the official global chart of the most amusingly
      named computer nerds:

      1. Ruud Wanke... MD of The Digital Edge
      in the Netherlands.
      2. Randy Bender... at Novell

      3. Randy Ringer... manager of Microsoft's
      Hardware division

        haha Randy Bender. There was a computer magazine I used to read when I was a nerdy teen (I'm a nerdy adult now) that had a writer called Richard Head.

        I want to know what Mr Cunt's Christian name is. It has to begin with an A or a U. Or best of all he needs to be called something like Ulysses Richard Arthur Cunt.

          I have an LP by an Austrian orchestra leader called Simon Krapp.

          And there was also a Swedish singer called Titti.

          I've got the San Remo '73 compilation LP, but sadly that particular number didn't make the cut, so I can't find out what the composer's first name was.

            An obvious one, but what on earth were Dick Hyman's parents thinking???!!!

              I saw an album by a guy called Skid Marks years ago, no kidding. Album title was funny too but can't recall right now...

                I seem to remember having a snigger at an album called "Big Beat On The Organ" by John Thomas...

                  Bent Fabric - I'm sure there's something rude in that name, but I can't think what......

                    and there's the mfp charity staple Piano Magic by Australian ( best in the accent ) 'Wayne King'. The sleeve notes, by Liberace, make much of his gifted hands.

                      To switch the topic to the world of science, the standard one everyone aways laughs at is Welcome Bender. I kid you not. And I used to work in the same group as a Dr. Funkenstein. Really.
                      You freeking scientologists are all the same, quible, dribble and then demand ice creams. Ohhhhhhhhhhh.
