Helen Paradise = Hell in Paradise, from a Dear Abby article on obscure names.

In the UK, we have a very popular breakfast radio show hosted by a guy called Terry Wogan. He gets loads of mail from his devoted listeners and pretty much does nothing else but play music and read out letters on air.

The letter writers almost make it a point of honour to go by a false name that plays on words (just like your username). Some good examples: Russell Sprout, Austin Space, Malcolm Tent. I wish I could remember more, they're very original.


That reminds me of a few joke's:

a book called "50 yard dash to the out house by: Will E. Makeit"
a book called "Antlers on the rooftop by: Who Goosed the Moose"

Great idea. This gives you an insight as to who you are communicating with. My favorite artist is Francisco de Goya and from "Los Caprichos" comes the plate "The sleep of reason produces monsters". This is something I have found true throughout my life.
