I am discombobulated. Truly.

    Perhaps it will depend upon where the caravan is parked at the time.

    The name is not why it's all gone wrong.

    The wrong bit here is Thorntons and the culture of "fear of litigation" we live in. So Thorntons would not put a name on an egg for fear of upsetting a Footballer and getting sued......and fear without foundation because UK law does not allow it? Barking mad.
    You only need two tools: WD40 and Duck Tape.
    If it doesn't move and should, use the WD40.
    If it shouldn't move and does, use the tape.

    Not to mention what is the chance of Wayne Rooney hearing about a kid having the name put on the egg. It would also be pretty easy to destroy the evidence.

    Errr - no. Its nothing to do with the fear of potential IP litigation - its the fact some mad barking fool has named her kid after two footballerists. It evidently shows that she has beans for brains and does not realise what a cretin she has been for she actually thought that it would be a good idea to do it in the first place.

    I particularly like the part where she says that sproglet just happens to be named after a famous footballerist. Errr - no: you specifically named him after one Shrek looking not that good over paid footballerist.

    I just really hope that he turns out to be a gay ballerina who hates football.

    I was hoping this would be the story about the woman who has never worked, been on benefits all her life and has now convinced her adult daughter to get preggers to get bumped up the housing list and reap the rewards of benefits as a lifestyle choice.

    Admitedly I read it in the Daily Mail so it may be slightly exaggerated. :roll:

    To be fair I'm not sure she could do much about the Scholes part of the name as it's her surname. Maybe she's a big Mickey Rooney fan - you're prejudging her just because she looks thick :wink:

    It's only her surname 'cos she married a Scholes - she really is mad :lol:

    What's really gone wrong for her is the realisation that her kid's name will be forever associated with a totally shyte football team. She should give AON a call, they probably know how she feels :P
