This Is Not A Joke

This is a real obit from a local paper in Richmond. Thank you Mr. Bo Peep for passing it along to me. Don't get me wrong, I offer genuine condolences to his friends and family but you have to admit his name is pretty amazing.

  1. with a real name like that, why on earth would you need a nickname? unless you were, in fact, an actual pimp.

    maybe people called him 'Mary' so he was forced into a nickname?
