Re: poll ideas quest 2007 (middle name)
in thread poll ideas quest 2007
My father served in the United States Navy during the Korean Conflict. During Boot Camp, the Instructor asked him why my Dad left the 'middle name' part of a form empty.
"I don't have one" was the response.
"Don't be an idiot! Everyone has a middle name! What's your Christian name, the name you were given when you were baptised?"
"I'm a Jew, Chief Petty Officer! I don't have a Christian name!"
Dad made certain we all had middle names, to save us from having to do extra push-ups later in our lives...
