An absolutely delightful little book!

Funny names were a part of family humor when we grew up, and the book was in our bookshelves. When I purchased it again it was of course smaller (and had fewer names) then I remembered, but it is still a very good and funny little book that I often will just have a look at for the sake of getting a quick laugh

My mom bought this for us when we were kids. We laughed til we cried & I *still* fondly remember many of the goofy *real* names of people in it -- Superporn Poopatana, Private Parts, Private Baby Cherry, Oliver Boliver Butt and countless others. Some are definitely off-colour, but most are tame.

A classic, funny little gem.

Remarkable names of Real People is what it says: John Train, a New York-based investment counselor who travelled the globe. When away, he went to the phone book and found real names like Positive Wassermann Johnson, Suparporn Poopattana and T. Hee.

Norman Cousins discovered that crazy movies will help you heal faster after surgery. This book is in the same category. If you want to laugh, read Remaarkable Names of Real People. It's out of print so thank goodness Amazon sells used books for only, here's a grin, a penny.
