Ruff-Cock Fills the Slot

Now I know you will think I have made this up, but it's for real...

Newtown Council Vacancy Filled 18/07/06
The casual vacancy on the Town Council has been filled by Mrs Vicky Ruff-Cock. Councillor Lewis will represent the Central ward. Councillor Ruff-Cock works for the Montgomeryshire Family Crisis Centre and has great interest in the town and its history. She is a member of the Monty Club and on the committee of the Friends of Penygloddfa School.

At my old firm, we used to have a client called Mr William Ankers. This gentlemen also set up a joint account with his wife so that was called Mr and Mrs W. Ankers.

We also dealt for a Mr Shittu....

There were many other good ones which sadly with the passage of time I have forgotten.

You really should acknowledge stories when you copy them verbatim from Guido's site, Iain...

Best thing I heard all day. Is she already working in her professional capacity with the Oaten family? I gather Mark requested her personally.

Yes, I distinctly heard him say, "This is a disaster, I must have Ruff-Cock"

Iain Dale said...

Inamicus, where is it on Guido's site? I can't see it. I was actually emailed it by a friend who works on a leftie magazine!

Tone made me do it - he's a bad influence said...

Must be doing the rounds, then...

I have just looked at Guido's site and the newest entry concerns Gordon Brown and gay rights at 4.58pm. This is very strange...

I wonder what her maiden name was.

It is nice to see true love overcoming all obstacles.

How do you get onto that bit of Guido's site as I can't seem to find it?

Mrs Weasel reminded me that there is a chlamydia researcher called Kimberly Crotchfelt.

I don't know if this qualifies for some sort of award for nominative determinism.

I once met a barristers clark whose surname was King, and his delightful parents had chosen to christen him Wayne. Poor sod!

I ran it - then pulled it.

Iain must have got the same email. He just ran with it later. Tip to tipsters: We both try to avoid doing the same stories.

Wish the same could be said for the Sun's The Whip column, the Standard's Londoner's Diary and Ephraim Harcastle in the Daily Mail.

There used to be a press officer for the European Parliamentary Labour Party, who was called, I kid you not, Paul Twococks

I was at university with a man called Burns-Cox. Following his nominative destiny he went on to become a urological surgeon.

Within my own specialist area there are two colleagues, one called Dr Cock and the other Dr Dick. One of the most embarassing public moments I have ever witnessed was when the former was mistakenly introduced as the latter when about to speak at a conference. The hasty correction of the error obviously made the embarassment even more acute.

Finally, a friend once told me that he was at school with a boy called R.W.J.T. Cock; Richard William John Thomas...

There used to be a Conservative councillor in Harrow called Owen Cock. His mother, who was also a councillor, had remarried and was Mrs Nott-Cock.

I used to work for the online gambling company PartyGaming. One of the Directors and co-founders is an Indian businessman called A Dikshit.

However he is a billionaire, so I guess he's not too bothered.

Foolery

I don't think that one tops mine.

Iain, who wears the crown here?

Neil Craig said...

Peter your introduction story made me laugh out loud repeatedly.

Marquee Mark said...

Colleague of mine was at a school with a Jody Crotchtangle. Might explain the Rough-Cox.

I have a business card from a Mr. Vukov somewhere.

But all silly names contests die on their arse when confronted with the ultimate - Mr. Bum-Suk Poo. He couldn't understand why he got through so many business cards either...

Marquee Mike, perhaps you could contact B-S P to say that the Lib Dems are seeking more ethnic minority representation in Parliament and there is a vacancy coming up in Winchester?
