Can't Keep It In: Ridiculous Names, Public Self-Control, and Private Judgment
I was rudely awoken at the crack of dawn the other morning not by an adorable baby, my usual rude awakener, but rather by a crow fight out on our bedroom's balcony. "Fucking corvids," I muttered to myself, as I began to worry about whether their thumping and cawing would awaken the baby. It then occurred to me that "Corvid" sounds like a newfangled baby name and, instead of sleeping, started to think of other names to join it. Thus, I give you a list of names that you can name your child that I will laugh at behind your back. Enjoy! I know I will!
"Excuse me, Ma'am? Your child just shat on my car."
"Excuse me, Ma'am? Your little Corvid just tried to eat my little Carrion."
