    Taken from the The Tonight Show or something? :rofl: Thanks.

    But it makes you wonder, are people so ignorant of what they send to the papers? :uhh:

    Loved it. If Ivana Trump married, in succession, Orson Bean (actor), King Oscar (of Norway), Louis B. Mayer (of MGM), and Norbert Wiener (mathematician), she would then be Ivana Bean Oscar Mayer Wiener. Wonder when that will happen?

    :rofl::rofl: well, here's the first PF member with a potentially funny double-barrelled name!

    Unfortunately, my name couldn't possibly give anything exciting when coupled to another!

    This is hilarious! The worst part is that these people have to know. How could you not?

    I'm sure they do. A friend of mine is recently engaged and very glad to be trading in her last name for his, but also realizing the combination is really hilarious, so I'm not sure what they'll put in the papers as an announcement. I think they're just going to suck it up and have fun with it and maybe hope they get paid $100 or something if it makes it to the Tonight Show.
