I Can't Help Myself....

I know it's childish, I know it's immature and I know that I should know better.

But, my cousin's daughter on Facebook has got a friend. Every time I read his name it makes me smile. The smile has now turned to laughter, luckily it stays in my head or the girls in the office would look at me weirdly even more weirdly.

As I type this I think of his name and feel that sensation of laughter bubbling up in the throat. And of course, in order to tell you the name, which you probably won't find funny at all, I need to disguise it so the poor fellow doesn't google himself, arrive here at my blog, then come round to my place and beat me up because I wrote a post in which I laughed at his name.

Glass house, stones, Sri Lankan names, we're hardly in a position to laugh at others are we?

But his name is, when you close up the spaces:

A L B E R T E
B A N G


How funny and how cool a name is that?

For the first part of my comment, I will simply quote,

:) Do I need to elaborate what is running through my head right now?

For the second part of my comment, I think the kid has a future in the porn department, with a name like that.
