so I like to think about cat and dog names. I've been thinking about them a lot recently because my pal got a cat and was asking for names, so I decided to send her some. Mostly I tried to think of stuff that would make me laugh, like Stinky, Killer, Burger, Taco and so on. Then I thought "Fluffy" would be a good name for really hideous cat (or dog) like Sam, the world's ugliest dog, or Killer for a really small and cute cat. My pal didn't like those though, and she named it Juniper Brontosaurus Sassypants Jones. Brontosaurus was one of mine too actually. It got me thinking though, a lot of girls I know give their pets really long names - I wonder why? Cats especially, but some dogs also. Then I was talking with her about names and realized that inanimate objects make hilarious names. Like Phone. It's so stupid. "Hi, this is my dog, Phone." "Your dog's name is Phone??" "Yeah." Or Couch or Soap. Stinky is good too, however. And Et Cetera. And Retard. A dog named Retard. I guess that last one is offensive, but still makes me have to muffle my laughter since I'm at work.

jefferson biscuits esq. has a lot of names - i can't even remember them all at this point - but we obviously believe in the inanimate object as name theory!

Our neighbor has an attitudinous daschund named Taco, even though she's old-school Brooklyn and is constantly talking about "the damn spics". I cannot figure out why she named it Taco, except maybe some sort of perverse irony.

I just got two cats and named the male Rufus and the female Floyd. You could also use the porn-nomenclature method: your first pet's name and the street you grew up. For instance, my first pet was named Tiny and I grew up on Smallwood street.
