What's In a Name? 

The Dilbert Blog is having fun with people's names... pretty funny stuff, go check it out. This reminds me of my cousins who live near the Wisconsin Dells. Their last name is Hooker. I usually go up there a couple times a year and visit. In fact, when I do the Devil's Challenge Triathlon, I usually stay with them. Whenever I have the chance, I enjoy throwing their name out just to mess with people...

Person: So Nick, are you getting a hotel room for the race?
Me: No, I'm staying with the Hookers.
Person: *blank stare*
Me: What?
Person: You're staying with... *cough*... hookers?
Me: No... I'm staying with my cousins.
Person: Wait, your cousins are...
Me: No... their last name is Hooker. What did you think? My cousins are prostitutes?!

Gets them every time.
