Happy Belated MLK JR Day. Sorry I missed it, but this cartoon is a brilliant tribute. It combines repect for Martin Luther King Junior's accomplishments and a hatred of dopey, made-up names for innocent babies. I am not alone in my aversion. There is even an entire, very funny, website for people that think naming your baby something like "Mackaylan Neveah" is not, perhaps, giving her the best start in life. They check out the various baby-naming forums, unearthing all the latest atrocities. "Trinnitey" is one I spotted today. As if 'Trinity' correctly spelled wasn't bad enough. You have to see it to believe it. And all the snarky comments are very entertaining.
