Man names son “Carter Barack Obama Sealy”
A Broomfield, Colorado man got his name in the local newspaper for claiming he had named his new son Carter Barack Obama Sealy. He also said that his two other children were named Brooke Trout Sealy and Cooper John Elway Sealy. Supposedly he had a deal with his wife. She got to choose the kids' first names, and he got to choose their middle names.

The children's grandmother spilled the beans on the father, notifying the paper that the names were not real. The guy's wife explained that the fake names were her husband's idea of a joke. She added, "My husband's an idiot."

'She added, "My husband's an idiot."'

No excuse. You should have thought of that when you married him. Just hope it isn't hereditary.

Oh c'mon. "Brooke Trout" Sealy is great!

Better than Moxy "Crime Fighter" Teller, anyway.

Well, maybe not.

everything about that is funny.

It's absolutely ridiculous that I know this off the top of my head, but actually that's Penn's daughter, not Teller's, so her last name is Jillette.

And for what it's worth, I think Mowgli is one hell of a cool middle name.

Thanks for the correction, Mark!

Dunno why I thought it was Teller.
