Amusingly appropriate annunciator

A co-conspirator spotted this in the House of Commons...

So that those on the ermine benches don't feel left out, why not watch Lord Crisp's contribution to the obesity debate?

There AAN't half been some clever bastards

Hello, and welcome to the new and debateably improved Amusingly Appropriate Names blog — where we find examples of those happy confluences between accidents of birth and accidents of, er, other stuff, so you can use your own time in a more productive fashion.

To wit: check out the patronyms on these poindexters (or should that be pundexters?)...

Graham McElearney advises on e-learning; Dr John Learned is indeed; as is historian Rob Tombs; and Dr James Orwell has invented a smarter, more... more... more Orwellian sort of CCTV.

Meanwhile, at the other end of the brainy scale, Raven Knickerbocker performed "a rogue act of insanity" at Mad River Community Hospital.

All very appropriate, all very amusing, no doubt.

Amusingly appraperiate allegation

Footballers accused of rape are a staple of modern British life, and today the AANs blog has cause to honour their contribution to appropriate amusement.

"Two Dundee United footballers have been questioned by police in connection with an alleged serious sexual assault.

BBC Scotland understands the players are David Goodwillie and David Robertson."

Thanks to regular contributor, curry fan and inciter of rail company executive immolation A. McNeill for spotting that one.

UPDATE: The charges have been dropped; his willie is indeed good.  See?  His N is AA-rated after all.
