Couldn’t you just imagine coming across a character in a novel called Percival Ferguson? Something English, probably between the Wars, perhaps something with a little humor. Not fanciful enough to be a Wodehouse, but could certainly be a Waugh. No doubt his days and nights chumming around at his club will be gradually and progressively more restricted by his fiancee Evthalia Palmer until his freedom disappears entirely.
Or what about Harlan Dodd? I’m thinking someone from the American south.
And do you think Goliath Bledsoe would be happier with the interloping and somewhat flaky ingenue Mair Wahl or should he make an honest woman of Jehoshaphat Barnes before she runs off with Hodel Romero? Or even more importantly, is Jehoshaphat a boy’s name or a girl’s name?
I have no idea who any of these people are, but they sure seem to think that I need help with a particular male problem. (I don’t want to say what it is lest the Spam-bots pick up on the words…) I get at least one of these a day and am always amazed at the creativity of the names. Just now I looked and there was another two, this time from Shug Harp and Felina Farnsworth.
Do they think the names will confuse me into thinking I need this particular pill? And do they think that by sending at least one a day I will eventually say, “My god, I do need that pill!” Or is the point really about clicking on the link to go to some nefarious website?
In any case, they make me giggle almost every time.
