    A lot of people have a name that comes of an ancestor who had a particular profession (like Smith, Baker, Brewer, Cooper, and Miller).

    Don’t most English names supposedly come from their professions in the middle-ages?

    I once worked for a medical publisher. One of the many physicians on its mailing list was a psychiatrist called Dr. Couch.

    Most things that others do appear foolish. Some are NFL Fans, others think it is stupid to waste an afternoon looking at a multi hour game with 13 minutes of action in it. To each their own, I suppose.

    My favorite is still a (long ago) listing in the Bronx phone book: A surgeon named “Dr. Carnicero”. (That’s “butcher” in English.)

    Reminds me of my favorite Wizard of Id cartoon. Rodney had a line of new recruits. “Name?” “Baker.” “Sorry, we already have a baker. Name?” “Carpenter.” “Sorry, we already have a carpenter. Name?” “Fink.” “Sorry, we already have a king.”

    A college had an ornithologist named “Bird” who was also a private airplane pilot. One day the college got a phone call from someone who asked for an ornithologist:

    “That would be Professor Bird.”

    “You have an ornithologist named Bird?”

    “That’s right.”

    “May I talk to him?”

    “I’m sorry, but he’s out flying at the moment. Would you care to leave a message?”

    “Uh, no. I think I’ll look for someone else.”

    Panel 3 makes me wonder what ever happened to Brewer and Shipley. Maybe they had more than just that one toke over the line.
