Heard a good one.


I get a kick out of peoples names that fit or describe what they do. There are the made up ones like on NPR's Car Talk, their attorney's names are Dewey, Cheetam, & Howe. I really like the real ones. I heard one on the radio the other day that made me howl. The guy was a head of a Washington lobbying group. His name was "Mally Factor". For those that flunked freshman English, from M-W Dictionary...

Main Entry: mal搪搭ac暗or
Pronunciation: 'ma-l&-"fak-t&r
Function: noun
Etymology: Middle English malefactour, from Latin malefactor, from malefacere to do evil, from male + facere to do -- more at DO
1 : one who commits an offense against the law; especially : FELON
2 : one who does ill toward another

Couldn't think of a better person to be a lobbyist.

Does anyone have an more? Real ones?
