This week marks Vacation Bible Camp for my two eldest children. I am frantically trying to organize and pack for a weeks' family vacation, so VBS gives me a morning of respite to Get Shit Accomplished.
Mostly Cajun writes up a weekly post on the ridiculous names that some people curse their children with. In that vein, I tell you this...
I was distressed to meet the young ladies in SnarkGirl's class. A majority of them were named for luxury vehicles. A Mercedes, a Beemer(!), a brace of girls named Lexus (what is the plural of "Lexus?" Lexii?), a Denali and a Tahoe. ( actually asked the moms of Denali and Tahoe if they were named after geographic locations or SUVs. It was a 50/50 split.)
We also had a few children named after vacation resorts: a Hampton, a Seychelle and a Maldive.
What the fucking fuck? What screams "Materialistic Yuppie Assmunch" louder than naming your kids for status symbols?
