Mind went to a dark place just now…
The worst thing is that there is a radio advertisement about a guy named Dr. Lipschitz telling you to get boosted.
There’s a character named Moist von Lipwig.
I chose Lipschitz because Fuchs is pronounced Fooks and means fox. But I can see how it could look worse on first glance to someone who never took German in high school. (>‿◠)
I feel so called out for this because in the very first novel I wrote on Wattpad, I had a character literally named Lipchits as a first name. I only used it because I was inspired by the musical Chicago where in the song Cell Block Tango they used the name, but at the time, I didn’t realize it was a last name.
Depending on the accent, it can still kind of sound like “fucks”
And it’s the same with Fockers. Of course, the name was made as a joke in the movies, but yeah.
Also not toward the given names, but another unfortunate name is Poop. I’ve met someone with this last name, but they were Asian and it was pronounce Poe-up.
Just reminds me of Robin Hood Men in Tights.
“My last name is Latrine!”
“I like it alright. It used to be s***house.”
once saw a sign for a realestate agent named Clint Cockburn.
Lipschitz sounds like a Mel Brooks character.
Just remembered where I heard the name from. Dr. Lipschitz is a Rug Rats cartoon character.
Dude… I totally forgot about that guy! Damn…thanks for reminding me!
A Dr. Lipschitz had a radio ad telling people to get boosted in my local area. Extra unfortunate now.
Your title made me think of that scene from Dead Poets Society: Pits, Mr. Pits, how unfortunate.
But now that name seems more fortunate than the ones you gave.
I would vote on both if I could.
Reminds me of that one neuroscientist named Dick Swaab.
Always felt weird reading his studies.
