There’s Hope For Pilot Inspektor

July 24, 2008 / Posted by:

This story doesn’t have anything to do with Jason Lee’s son, Pilot Inspektor, but he may want to file it away for possible future use.

A family court judge in New Zealand made a 9-year-old girl a ward of the court so that her name could be changed. You see, her parents named her “Talula Does The Hula From Hawaii.” Seriously. I think Matthew McConaughey is hitting himself over the head with his bongos for not thinking of that totally awesome name.

The little girl is involved in a custody battle. Her new name was not made public. It was probably changed to “Talula Does The Kapa Haka From New Zealand.” Well, she’s from New Zealand. Not Hawaii.

The poor girl told the court that she was also embarassed by her name and asked all her friends to call her “K” instead. The judge said, “The court is profoundly concerned about the very poor judgment which this child’s parents have shown in choosing this name. It makes a fool of the child and sets her up with a social disability and handicap, unnecessarily.”

The registration office in New Zealand has already blocked some names, but some have been allowed, including including “Number 16 Bus Shelter.” I can’t even comment on that shit. Those parents deserve the beat down of a lifetime.

Please forward this story to Audio Science, Moxie Crimefighter, Diva Thin Muffin and Jermajesty. They need to know that there’s a way to stop the madness!
