Action alert on HB2011 regarding Pre-Emption

Rep Mike Turzai has committed to move HB 2011. This bill strengthens pre-emption by providing for standing and compensation of expenses in the event a local law needs to be challenged that conflicts with State gun laws. Corbett said he will sign if it is put on his desk in the remaining 11 days left to the legislative session.

Default How do you pronounce it?

Louisiana English Lesson, 2009



A mother in Louisiana has a daughter in school.

OKAY. How would you pronounce this child's name: "Le-a" ?

Leah?? NO
Lee - A?? NOPE
Lay - a?? NO
Lei?? Guess Again.

This child attends a school in Livingston Parish, LA. Her mother is irate because everyone is getting her name wrong. It's pronounced "Ledasha", When the Mother was asked about the pronunciation of the name, she said, "The dash don't be silent."

SO, if you see something come across your desk like this please remember to pronounce the dash.

If they axe you why, tell em "the dash don't be silent."

Default Re: How do you pronounce it?

That's right, the kid is named, Abcde.


The list of names started off badly enough, with Paychence as the first name. Poor girl, having to go through life knowing her parents were morons. Krystynn was in the list. Replacing one vowel with a y should be a misdemeanour, replacing two should be a felony. Camrenn was in there too, and it’s the name of a boy. Yes, I know that Cameron can be a perfectly good boy’s name, but only when it’s spelled Cameron. Then again, his other given names were Dinan and Llaguno.

Then there was the unholy trio of Jhace, Wylder, and Jayke, and I thought I had my Bad Baby Names.

But six names from the end of the list came the champion. The bad baby name to end all bad baby names. La creme de la creme. The absolute pinnacle (or nadir, depending on your point of view) of bad baby names.

Are you ready for it? Brace yourselves. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.

Abcde.

That’s the name.

Abcde.

I’m not making this up.

Abcde.

I’m sure we’ve all heard the stories of immigrant mothers with a tenuous grasp of the English language naming their kid “Nosmo King” because of the “No Smoking” sign they saw in the hospital. There’s also stories of kids being named Chlamydia or Gonorrhea because it “sounded pretty”.

But Abcde?

I mean, how do you pronounce it? “Ab-kuh-duh”? Do you actually speak each letter in turn?

And why in God’s name would you even name your kid this? Bastardizing a pre-existing name is understandable enough, but the first five letters of the alphabet? What the hell is wrong with people?

Shouldn't it really be "Lehyphena"????

So let me get this straight, if I am introduced to someone named "Shithead" should I pronounce their name "Shi-Theyed"?
