I wondered why my connection didn't answer!
The Brits are losing their Balls
You don't have to be Freud to know that the razzing you get on a playground haunts you the rest of your life, especially if your surname is "Cockshott."
A study out of Britain found that people with last names hilariously funny to fifth graders are disappearing. The number of people named "Cock" shrank to 785 last year, down from 3,211 in 1981. "Balls" fell from 2,904 to 1,299 in the same period, while "Knob" dropped off 51 percent, and "Cockshotts" 34 percent, according to Reuters report
Friend and Futurist David Zach forwarded this story to me, and the message to me is clear: What makes sense today will likely look senseless tomorrow.
The report quotes the Oxford English Dictionary, which defined Daft to mean "mild" or "meek" in Old English, whereas today it means "foolish" today. Without consulting a reference book, I'm just going to assume that most of the Cocks took their name before it sounded like dialog out of a porno.
