For Real? June 21, 2007

Posted by whatpushesmybuttons in comedy, common sense, critique, current events, funny, humor, opinion, sarcasm, stupidity, weird, world news.

So get this…a New Zealand couple has been barred from calling their newborn son: “4real”.

Yes, they actually want to name their child “4real”.


I mean…why not name their child 4real? There’s tons of famous people with numbers in their name. I mean look how famous 2Pac became! What about that guy 50cent? He’s done pretty well for himself. So why not 4real?

According to the article, the couple was told by New Zealand’s Registry of Births, Deaths and Marriages, that “names beginning with a number were against the rules”.

Against the rules? What rules would those be? Those rules that “society” imposed on us. Is there some sort of naming law out there we don’t know about? Does everyone need to be named “Bob” or “Jim” or “Mary”?

The Registry further states that the “rules are designed to prevent names that are likely to cause offense to a reasonable person”.

Yes because 4real is sooooooo offensive. Wait your name is 4real? Fuck you, you heartless bastard. Why don’t you just die!

At least 4real is easy to pronounce, unlike the names of some other people from other countries, like Madagascar.

Plus this kid could have all sorts of nicknames. Like “foe”…or “real”…or “four”. At least they weren’t thinking of naming him something like Oswipe. Or Dick (no offense to those Richard’s or Dick’s out there of course).

I think this just opened the door for all sorts of possibilities. It wasn’t too long ago that there was a big hubbub over that couple that wanted a corporate sponsor for their baby’s name.

In fact if I ever decide to populate this world with a child (heathen) then I may just throw out the naming book and be inventive.

How bout naming my child “4shizzle”? Or “2badtobegood”. Or “1+1=getoutofmyfacemothafucka”.

The possibilities are endless!

in a weird twisted way, you’re 100% right…rules are just labels in this case…let them name their child a stupid name.

4stupid is what they should name the child

Dick is pretty commonplace down south…although i agree it does sound weird when you’re talking to one and you’re like, “hey dick!”

umm…you do know that 50cent and 2pac weren’t their birth names right?

8. candice - June 21, 2007

umm…harris….that’s why they call this “sarcasm” 😉

10. bob - June 21, 2007

i agree…it’s kinda bullshit…

“rules are designed to prevent names that are likely to cause offense to a reasonable person”.

and there’s tons of “reasonable people” in this world…please…get over yourself!

12. victor - June 21, 2007

yeah…the name would be weird…but its their decision!

13. johnson - June 21, 2007

i’m gonna name my child 4fake!

14. lauriekendrick - June 21, 2007

I can’t believe the stupid horseshit names people want to bestow upon their innocent children. Don’t parents know that what they name children can inflict psychic scars for years to come.

4Real? You’ve GOT to be kidding!

Enjoyed the post!
