Q: What Would You Name Your Kid If You Ever Had One?

A: Six months into every relationship I hand my girlfriend the following list of gender neutral proposed baby monikers. She is encouraged to circle (with a pencil) the ones she finds least offensive. Potential additions to the list may be submitted ten days later via affidavit.

Melman
Rudiger
Starshine
Fruit Bat

Probot
Thundereesi
Jandek
Kwondar
Frundildum
Cassette Deck
Teri Garr
