From now on I'd kindly ask you all to refer to the organ in question as a "piddle pencil".

At the last call centre I worked at there was a customer named Richard Wang.

Apparently snakes have 2 penors. I'd try to find a source or reference to back that up but I don't want to be caught googling snake dicks at work.

For some reason it never really occurred to me that they would have one, much less two. Snakes just seem like they would reproduce externally, fish style.

Its pretty hard to mispronounce Philip, but I am constantly having to inform people that it is Philip not Phillip, which I can understand - easy mistake to make (although my parents spent most of my childhood assuring me that mine was the "correct" spelling for the first name and Phillip is the spelling of the surname) I do however get mildly annoyed by people writing Phill, as even Phillip shortens just to Phil.

The real confusion doesn't start till I have to tell people that despite the single L in my first name, my surname contains two Ls and two Ts - apparently this fact is very hard to grasp for some people.


Another thing about my name is that, with the exception of one Mr Seymour Hoffman there are very few famous Phils, apparently this is because we are all backstage to the point that I had a friend who could go into a theater and just ask "So wheres Phil" and somewhere, some guy would stick his head up from doing something technical and wave.

Well, I think its more of an American term, but when someone says Johnson, do you think "wang"?

Sad truth of today is that if you're called Richard, or know a Richard, or see Richard, people say "we should say Dick, lolololol". I mean if Friends can go like 10 years without the joke, and even over 3 Austin Powers movies its not mentioned, how is it possible people find it funny? Its weird.

The Johnson= wang thing makes me angry. Mostly because growing up with the name Amanda Johnson I got to hear way more dick jokes and "amanda hugnkiss" cracks in elementary school than anyone should ever have to encounter.

Edit: Now I just get to constantly say "Hren. H-R-E-N. Like the bird. But with an H instead of a W. Fuck it, I'll just write it down for you, ok?"

I know a Tanya who goes by Tone-YAH

It's only recently that I learned that's not how other people with the name Tanya go by.

I also recently learned Aaron is not pronounced like Auron from FFX.

So here's a thing that confuses me. How do Americans pronounce the name Deirdre? From watching your TV shows it seems like you pronounce it "Deer-dra", but myself and every other Australian I've ever met has always pronounced it "Deer-dree" (I've known at least three Deirdres during my lifetime and they've all pronounced it that way).

Well, yeah, but don't forget I'm semi-archaic myself, at this point.

Pronunciation.  Third pronunciation for how we pronounce my daughter' name.

Whenever I think of that name, the scene from Monty's Python's The Meaning of Life pops into my head - the one where a baby drops right out of Terry Jones while he is doing the dishes and says in his squeaky lady voice 'Get that for me, will you Deirdre.'

because this immediately comes after the previous conversation, I assumed you named your penis "Philip" and correct people when they spell your penis wrong.

One of my cousins' middle names is Dierdre. Dier-dree, definitely. I've never heard it pronounced another way here.

Most Americans I've known named Deirdre have pronounced it deer-druh, but I have known several who pronounce it dee-druh. I have never heard deer-dree, but I haven't been out of the country either!

At the last call centre I worked at there was a customer named Richard Wang.

I generally don't really interpret Richard as a potential penis joke because both my father and Grandfather are Richards, and my grandfather actually went by Dick, so it's kinda just a name to me, but when I worked in a call center I talked to a caller named Richard Toy.  Dick Toy.  I'm sure he heard his fair share of jokes.
