people you know that have a famous name

Recommended Posts

The guy I replaced as sports editor of our college paper was named Gregory Peck. (He once got a letter to the editor about a column of his with the PS: "Say Hi to John Wayne and Jimmy Stewart."

One of the medical students on my service in the hospital this past year was also Gregory Peck. That guy's everywhere - and he graduates med school next week! Better still, one of his classmates is LaToya Jackson... I :censored: you not.

There was the kid a few grades ahead of me that use to go to my school, and he was the paper boy, his name was michael/mike myers.

Forgot about that one. I have a coworker named Michael/Mike Myers.

I go to school with a kid named Austin Powers, Everyone laughs when they call his name. He has Austin Powers glasses too. I think he lives in my neighbor hood.

I worked with a guy Robert Smith, who was not the lead singer of the band The Cure.

I presume this co-worker of yours also did not play running back for the Minnesota Vikings, then retire to go to medical school?

I used to work with a guy named Jack Ryan (Tom Clancy character). He wore this dumb ass toupee. His normal hair was grey and the toupee was brown!

A lot of those names are fairly common, and you're bound to know somone by that name, eventually.

The company I used to work for had 24,000 employees, seven of which were named Mike Smith.

None of those were the same Mike Smith I went to high school with.

I used to play cricket with a guy Paul Kelly, which is also the name of one of the (AFL MVP Award) Brownlow Medallists and the name of one of my favorite musicians.

As in Paul Kelly and Messengers? There's a name I haven't heard in a while.

Actually, two very good music references in this one.

Yep, the same. He still plays occasionally.

But not with the Messengers any more.

As for Robert Smith, Vandy, unless the Robert Smith who played for the Vikings was a 40 year old White Australian guy with Red hair, then no, it was someone else.

A kid at a local high school has the name Arsenio Hall. I announced at basketball games and it was tough not to say his name like it was said at the beginning of the Arsenio Hall Show.

I have a good friend, Steve Miller. He is also a musician (indie hip-hop) and therefore had to pick a stage name. Unsung - check him out on MySpace.

I also went to high school with a kid named Corey Hart. Not sure if he wore his sunglasses at night or not.

My friend's uncle's name is Tim McGraw. He's earned a few bucks in his time making bets that his uncle is Tim McGraw, just the wrong one.

I think, ladies and gentlemen, I may have upped the ante.

Today I had an appointment at an office, and they listed the staff on the In/Out board.

There, in all his glory was Pat Cummings.

So I nodded to it to the receptionist. "Pat Cummings, I know a Pat Cummings from America. (pause) He's a Graphic Designer." (Do a member search for "pcgd")

The receptionist said "Pat's not in, she has Friday's off."

In these forums, there's virtually no more famous a name.

OK, perhaps Creamer. Maybe Mings, I don't know.

Yeah, I know YOU are, but the lady with the same name as you apparently isn't.

Are you sure either way?
