These pictures were forwarded to me the other day.  They caused quite a stir at work when someone printed them off, leaving them unattended at the printer!  Silly mistake – let’s just say that management were not too impressed.

Seriously!?  They didn’t see it coming?  Wow..

    Worst I've seen was about ten or twelve years ago–a couple from a neighboring town (so local I may have run into them): Sertaine – de Voors. I mean, Somebody's trying to tell you something….

    My sister Valerie married a man called Ron Down, so when she wrote her initials, she started to use her middle initial becoming VAD as opposed to VD.

    A girl at school was called Emma Royd … honestly!

    An a friend more recently is called Andy Grandey – so we call him Andrew Grandrew.

    yes I'm in my 50's and we still tease eachother :)

    When people take other partners name it can be equally fun
    Wild Rose became Wild Bull
    Penny Black became Penny Farthing
    Rose White became Rose Garden

    Back around the time I got married (early 1980s), in our local paper there were Lingle-Berry and Hamm-Berger. In my school yearbooks, there were two girls listed alphabetically by the last names of French and Fry.

    I once knew a girl with the surname Dick. Her first name was Ophilia.
    My husband once worked with a girl whose name was Gaye. She married someone with the surname Gay and became Gaye Gay.
