    I was given this book as a gift by Prof. Frumkes. Writing being a hobbie of mine I tend to buy name books to get inspiration for the names of characters I create. His book did not have my name in it but Prof. Frumkes was nice enough to add a note about it in the book. =0)This book is great for laughs and quirky inspiration.
