What's The Name of Your Best Friend?

I was walking throught the hospital with Micah, and he decided that it was my turn to carry Woody. So we're just walking along, minding our own business, when two nurses came up behind us.

"Awww, how cute. Does your Woody still work?"

Whoever named that cowboy should really have thought a little more on the subject.

LOL! My dad's name is Woody, can you imagine how badly he must have been picked on as a kid?

That's bad, but know where near as bad as a guy we once new named Mike Hunt (say that fast!) in real life.

jessica said...

that was good for a chuckle, thanks! what an adorable photo of micah...

Flea said...

BWahahaha! Um. That's bad.

Michelle said...

Actually, I think that the people who named him Woody did so on purpose. But I'm cynical that way sometimes....

Fortunately, we don't have any great names yet, although my son's favorite lovey is a Thomas pillow he calls his baby. That gets me some weird looks when he or I ask a question about his "baby."

Thanks for stopping by!

Queen Mommy said...

Ooops. Love that Woody...

Debbie Yost said...

So, does it?

Too funny!

I'm so tuned into kidville that I didn't even flinch. Of course I knew it was Buzz Lightyear's friend. My poor husband probably wishes my mind went elsewhere *first*.

Cute story.

One of my favorite stories is my mom telling me about a boy she went to school with named Richard Dick.

Yeah, made me laugh until I snorted, too!

After having met a few Disney Imagineers, I wouldn't put it past them to have done it on purpose. They like to get their digs in where the can.

Micah is so darn cute it hurts! Of course, he'd be even cuter if a certain doc would go ahead and rip out his tonsils. ;-)

caramama said...

I've always thought they named him that on purpose! Too funny to hear the nurses say that!

Spammon said...

You know what's crazy...I never really even thought much about his name until right this second...and if you know me, that sounds like hogwash!

Andrea said...

LOL!! I think all the Disney cartoons have some kinda hidden something in them. You should have answered, "Well I have four kids, I think he works just fine!" LOL!!

Linds said...

Hahahahahaha!

How funny! I never really thought about his name in that context either. But um, now I will always think of your post when I hear the name woody!

Shellie said...

Cheffie-Mom said...

HAHAHA! Thank you for the laugh!!! I think my son had that same toy.

utmomof5 said...

I love woody!!!

The TOY, people get your minds out of the gutter!! :)

I am like a 13 year old I always giggle when I hear his name. :P

Madame Queen said...

My brother went to school with a girl whose name was Lacy Dick. That would suck, wouldn't it? (No pun intended).

Yes, I'm also 12.

Fannie Mae said...

I love it when other people's minds sink to the gutter as quickly as mine!

Kellan said...

Pam said...

ha ha ha ha ha! That is soooooo funny! I will be giggling all night!

Karen MEG said...

I've always wondered about the wisdom of that name. Then you hear about animators and all the jokes etc. they like to hide in the cartoons.

BTW, that is the CUTEST shot of Micah ...those beautiful eyes!!

Mommy to those Special Ks said...

Yep Woody and his friend Buzz... someone at Disney either has a sick sense of humor or is REALLY clueless!

Sniz said...
