Missed opportunity


No, I don't mean her not appearing in the Super Bowl Halftime Show, I'm talking about her name. If you are going to call yourself "Cardi", how disappointing is it to then make your last name "B" instead of "O"? Would that have been so hard? Just think if she decided to make an exercise video: The Cardi O Workout!

Actually, I personally think "Yak" would be even better. I mean just imagine the headlines if she ever got apprehended for drug use? "ILLEGAL DRUGS RESULT IN CARDI YAK ARREST". 

I realize that merely having a clown in the White House should be a great source of comic entertainment, but it has turned out to be just the opposite: nauseating tragedy or infuriating mendacity on a daily basis. And as such I believe we need to exploit every opportunity for humor to compensate. If Ms. B would now just kindly consider a name change.....or in her case, even a single letter change.....we would have at least one more thing to snicker at.

Personally I had no idea who this person was before her name started popping up in headlines and I am certain none of her songs have ever been played on my radio station. But as long as someone deems her newsworthy, I expect to see her continue to be mentioned.......and each time I will sigh with disappointment at the missed opportunity for a bit of nomenclature levity. Not to mention a place of honor among those whose entertaining names have gone before: Rip Torn, Slim Pickens, Armand Hammer, & Red Buttons to name a few.

    1. Only if her first name was Perry and her middle name Cardi.

  2. K.D. You definitely have too much time on your hands. But I believe I am speaking for all your readers when I say that's a good thing.

    1. Hmmm, I'll take that as a compliment, Tomy. Actually I haven't been posting much because I have been busy with other things. So too much time? Maybe. (But I pack a lot into what I have!) ;-)

    1. Welcome, Vic, and thank you!

      Dusty Rhodes! Wow! Now there's a name I have not heard in a while! And I have to tell you......by coincidence....he was one of my absolute favorites 'back in the day'. Thanks for adding his name to the list.
