The Daily Ping

Not a toilet in the country has not been affected by the Ping in one way or another.

Name Butchering

Around our house, when someone calls and butchers my wife’s first name, we know it’s likely a telemarketer. Or when they ask for “Michael,” thinking that part of our last name is actually my first name. This morning we got a call from an insurance agent (not ours) that butchered my wife’s name really badly. In their records they had “Michael” as the first name and a concatenation of her first and middle names (neither of which are standard American names) as her last name.

Has your name ever been terribly butchered?

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
