2010 NOTY: Sithole Regional, Part 2

An excellent mix of name stylings in the second quadrant of the Sithole Regional, which is named, of course, for 1985 NOTY Godfrey Sithole.

Vote for one:

No. 5 Coke Wisdom O'Neal: New York photographer who "builds 22-foot-high wood boxes and shoots people standing inside them."
No. 12 Typhoon Nurse: Male Canadian basketball player.
No. 4 ShaMiracle Johnson: University of Georgia law student.
No. 13 Roy Spancake: Editorial Committee member, Pennsylvania Lodge of Research. Our first NOTY Freemason!

  1. A matchup of relatively weak entries, but the entire Sithole region is pretty weak. Maybe I'm just spoiled from the Bulltron region, but these names are relatively bland and boring. Of course it won't matter because Dick Smallberries, Jr. will take the entire region!

  2. Hey, just noticed you had a name of the decade for the 90's, since we just started a new decade, will there be some voting for the Name of Decade of the 00's? Or is that a High Committee decision?

  3. Nametard, what do you mean weak? Coke Wisdom O'Neal is one of may favorites in the entire bracket this year.

  4. If you look beyond Coke Wisdom O'neal (which I think is a good but not great name), the rest of the field has pretty bland names (beyond Dick Smallberries, Jr., of course). It just doesn't have much depth in terms of really good quality names.

  5. How do you overlook a Spancake? That is just remarkable. I mean, there's a doggone pancake embedded in a man's name, for the love of all that's holy!

  6. Roy Spancake is a great everyman name. It's like Joe Six-pack or John Q. Public; they are names that seem so commonplace until you realize that no one has them.

    Also, there's the off-chance that it's pronounced 'span-kah-kay'.

  7. Gotta go with Roy Spancake here. One of those names, like Rich Tanguy, that you have to say aloud, and it gets funnier each time you hear it.

    Also, I bet he pronounces it to rhyme with bukkake.

  8. COME ON, PEOPLE... WAKE UP! HE'S GOT A DAMN "pancake" EMBEDDED IN HIS NAME! THAT IS UNBELIEVABLE.

  9. FYI, ShaMiracle Johnson may someday be ShaMiracle Johnson, Esquire.

  10. Loving the Spancake comments. I work with him on occasion and submitted that name. I will continue to be blown away that his name is in fact, "Roy Spancake."

    He actually answers his phone with a simple, "Spancake."

    It's incredibly difficult to move forward upon hearing that greeting.
