Appropriate Names

This is really, really low brow, so look away if you have any last vestiges of respect for my sense of humour.

Have you noticed how often it is that people's names are appropriate to their job? It's probably not coincidence, just that those names draw attention to themselves.

But when you're reading an article about how circumcision reduces the chances of heterosexual men contracting Aids, is it wrong to laugh that the doctor interviewed by the BBC is named Dr De Cock?
Dr Kevin De Cock, director of the HIV/Aids department of the World Health Organization told the BBC the results were a "significant scientific advance" but were not a magic bullet and would never replace existing prevention strategies.
See, you're laughing inside.
