Godzilla Gorilla Pimp

A coworker of mine claims that she met an occupational therapist who works with a student in our fine city named . . . Well, named the title of this post. Yes. You're reading that right: Godzilla Gorilla Pimp.

I looked into the system, and as far as I can tell, there is a not a student with any variation of that name enrolled anywhere in our public schools, which is why I don't have reservations about protecting Godzilla's (Mr. Pimp's?) anonymity.


However, I did a google query, and it yielded two results with that exact word combination in the exact order.*

1. A Twitter update from someone read: "Godzilla Gorilla Pimp. Not even playin'." This tweet (I flipping hate that word) did not tell us for sure that it was even a name, and the person forgot the apostrophe in playin', so this doesn't tell us a whole lot and does not seem to be a reliable source.

2. A forum on a site called was discussing funny names, and someone said the following:
Quoting Christina714:“ I read about a mentally ill woman who named her child "godzilla gorilla pimp" but she was in a mental institution of some sort, atleast she had an exuse!”

Now, this, however being, again, hearsay in nature, does site an instance of someone being named that, but this person also thinks "at least" is one word and she spelled excuse wrong.** But, would there not be some institution stopping a woman giving birth in a mental institution from naming a kid whatever the heck her crazy ass wanted to? After all, when Dweezil Zappa was born, the hospital would not allow him to be named such a thing.***

If it is true, I hope that Godzilla Gorilla Pimp rises up from all the odds stacked against him, that extend far beyond his whacked-out name, which is enough, and he proves all the doubters wrong, becoming a CEO, local school board president, or dare I say, if the Queen of England has any kind of sense of humor, Sir Godzilla Gorilla Pimp . . .
*That equasion took me FOREVER because I'm a computer dumb-dumb, and I still could not get that next line, "however..." to stop being indented.
**I need to stop with this grammar police stuff before someone rips me to shreds.
***Here's the full story from wikipedia if you are interested:
"Dweezil's registered birth name was Ian Donald Calvin Euclid Zappa,[4] although this occurred only because the hospital at which he was born refused to register him under the name Dweezil. The name was a nickname coined by Frank for an oddly-curled pinky-toe of Gail's. He was always called "Dweezil" by his family and was unaware that this was not the name on his birth certificate. Upon this discovery at the age of five, he insisted on having his nickname become his legal name. Gail and Frank hired an attorney and soon the name Dweezil was official."

my plan has always been to give my kids normal first names and insane middle names.
if you want to give something a dumb name, get a cat.

lol @ Jersey.

my friend Rachel's kids names are Jazz and Ziggy. I kid you not. Their cousins are Ra, Shah, and Kah, (all boys). Then there is their second cousin, whose name is Shanaya DIRTBIKE Brown. Shanaya's mother is pregnant again now, as is Rachels only other sibling, so God help us all.

A friend of mine is an elementary school teacher and had two twins in his class named, "Oranjello" and "Lemonjello" (pronounced or-ahn-gelo and le-mahn-gelo) for, yep...You guessed it, Orange Jello and Lemon Jello.

Also, I was watching an episode of Judge Judy (don't judge) a few years ago and the defendant's name was "Smurfette." No joke.

It takes all sorts.

Oh, just so you know, if you go all "grammar cop" on me, I'll kick you ass.

(Have you been over to the old "S or S" yet?)

"Shanaya DIRTBIKE Brown" gonna write that one down.

My mom has a kid in her class named T-A. Pronounced Te-dash-a. And to that I say, EXCELLENT! I wish my name was K-A. And my middle name was Danger.

Jov: I agree about the cat thing. I'd name my cat Pussy Breath

Epskee: I kind of like Ziggy! Dirtbike is a horrible middle name, but it could be worse - could have been Dirt Road.

Custom: Are you the sponsor?

Jenni: Smurfette! Yes! Was she blue?

Jov: I rather like Leopesto . . .

Donk: That dash is NOT silent, bitches.

this Godzilla name is TRUE I heard it confirmed at the Robert Taylor homes meeting and also by a social worker who heard a judge go off in court about the naming of this poor child . this goes back to the late 80's so he aint no kid anymore!!!
