If that were the case, I'd probably be disqualified too

Morgan: "Oh, that's a cool name."

David L.: "What?"

Morgan: "Habukkuk."

Me: "If you ever have kids, it's going to be interesting, hollering their names from the back porch."

David: "Melchizedek! Methusela! Habukkuk! Get over here!"

Morgan: [laughs] "Maybe that's a sign I shouldn't have children."

Hahahahaha! It's SO true! If Morgan ever has kids, I am so gonna start giving them nicknames like "Mel" or "Mettie" or ... "Habu"???? Hmmmm.... even THAT would sound pretty strange from the front porch. LOL.

"I'm Shadrak!"
"I'm Meeshak!"
"I'm A-Bumblebee!...A...Bennyboo...I'm Benny."
~The Veggietales take on Shadrak, Meeshak and Abednigo: Rack, Shack and Benny
(And I have a feeling I just mangled the romanized spellings of those Hebrew names. I can't help it, nobody agrees on how to transliterate Hebrew/Arabic/Aramaic stuff into the Roman alphabet anyway, so all I can do is spell it how it sounds to me!)

At PBS the other day, while discussing the book of Daniel, Dr. B started singing songs from that Veggietales episode.

I have way too much fun in that class.

Every time "Eine Kleine Nachtmusik" comes on the radio, my dad starts singing, "I am King Darius! I had a dreaaam..."
