Change It
I just heard a last name on TV that made me think, "good lord, I'd have changed my last name as soon as I was old enough." In all actuality, I actually wanted to change my last name when I was younger...I hated it. Last names can suck sometimes.

Anyway, I'm sure you've heard names like that on television or IRL that make you cringe for the poor people who were given them. What are they?

I went to school with a guy with that last name - he pronounced it "koontz" but I've heard it pronounced the other way. Hilarious. Totally changeable.

Detective Munch. Even if he is the Kevin Bacon* for just about every other TV show, that name tho!


*Also because of Det. Munch, everything from the Wire to 30 Rock, to Luther, to Sesame Street, to Jimmy Kimmel etc. etc. exists in the same damn universe!!!!

I swear, until I joined the Q I thought Dick Trickle was a joke - I had heard it before, but I didn't think it was a real name
