    This made me recall the other week when a lady registered at my work with the surname Hugh-Cock.

    Randy Cheeks -- studying law and living in the same halls in first year, Randy is the child of Jamaican gangsters and is currently (AFAIK) languishing in prison after getting caught smuggling cocaine into the country.

    A couple of favs from the music dictionary I edit:

    Charles Quarles (18th-century organist)

    I think Kennedy Clinch is my fav so far. Nigel Vile is great as well, he sounds like a garbage pail kid
