Remember, during my last post, how I mentioned that I love it when ideas just fall my way (if you said 'priapism' is my least favorite word, congratulations. At least you were reading)?
I commented that sometimes I don't even need to write about a predetermined topic because the ridiculous is usually all around us (and not just at Joe Biden's house).
So it is with the below.
Now, unless your first name is 'Ben,' and you work in sports medicine, having a last name of 'Gay' can be problematic. Along with folks named 'Boner,' 'Dick,' 'Weiner', or 'Fluck,' they are what I like to call "people with unfortunate last names.' I can only imagine the ribbing a guy named 'Gay' got in Junior High School. Unless he grew up during the 1920s. Then, 'gay' meant 'happy.' And it was illegal to drink. But, boy those flappers were hot. Except now. When they're not.
Of course, it could be worse. If he lived in Iran, being called 'Gay' could get his genitals removed.
'Neel,' on the other hand, doesn't pack quite the same punch. Unless he was an altar boy. Or a male hooker.
But, put the two names together and you see what can happen.
Two things come to mind. Maybe, Mssrs. (I hope that's the correct abbreviation. It is French, though. So, who knows?) Gay and Neel printed thousands of these signs before some wag (probably a grown-up Junior High School kid) pointed out the hilarious juxtaposition (NOTE: Snooty term for 'next to') of their last names. Cue: loud bursts of outraged Anglo-Saxon expressions of goodwill.
Or (and this is what I would do):
Mr. Gay: "Hey, I have an effed up last name, anyway. So, whaddya say we have some fun with it? How 'bout we put your last name right after mine?"
Mr. Neel: "No way, that'd be stupid and silly."
Mr. Gay: "Screw you, I'm the boss. We'll do it the way I say. You will Neel to me!!"
(Clearly showing that Mr. Gay likes to make fun of other people after all the crap he got in school).
And, so we have:

Many thanks to my son for sending me this. While- fortunately for him-he doesn't look like me, he does have my sense of humor.
