The Votes Are In...


No, I’m not talking about the latest on the race for delegates; what I refer to is of so much more importance…your votes regarding which celebrity baby name is the absolute worst.

And the winner is….Pilot Inspektor. This poor child was given this name by his parents, actor Jason Lee and Beth Riesgraf, who had to answer to more than a few befuddled fans. According to them, they chose the name “Pilot because they really liked the song, “He’s Simple, He’s Dumb, He’s the Pilot” by the band Grandaddy, and the name “Inspektor” because it sounded good (especially spelled incorrectly?).

Ummmm….what? Is this an attempt to prove your eccentricity at the expense of your child, or do you really just believe your celebrity has catapulted you so far from planet Earth that only alien names will do?

My personal vote was actually for Heaven Rain, bestowed on the baby girl by her loopy parents, Brooke Burke and David Charvet. They chose the name because, according to them, “Rain grows everything.” – Earth shattering. I chose the name because two clueless parents have single handedly determined a life of petuli oil and skirts made of wheat for their defenseless offspring. At least Pilot has a shot at a pretty good job….

Needless to say, check out the newest poll…your vote is important; our national security depends on
it.

Does anyone remember the football player D'Brickashaw Ferguson? Not a "baby" name, but it's my personal fave.
