    My best friends niece is April Tarot Disney Brook-Ship

    (Born in April, apparently her birth was predicted by Tarot cards, her mum is a massive fan of Disney and Brook-Ship is the double barrelled surname )

    I know someone whose surname is "Mycock", and someone else whose first name is Anus.

    I don't know if he was lying, but don't think he was as we were laughing about it for ages...

    But one of my friends said that one of his teachers at secondary school had the surname Nisantose or Nisantos, don't know how it was spelt. Anyway, some genius thought about it and every lesson they all used to go in singing heads shoulders knees and toes.
