    Pakistani ambassador rejected because of his name

    Pakistani ambassador rejected because his name is NSFW in Arabic | FP Passport

    Despite having served for years as a distinguished Pakistani diplomat, Akbar Zeb reportedly cannot receive accreditation as Pakistan's ambassador to Saudi Arabia. The reason, apparently, has nothing to do with his credentials, and everything to do with his name -- which, in Arabic, translates to "biggest dick".

    Ever heard of Norm Hiscock?

    Fitting that he writes comedy.

    But his parents should have named him Elliott Norm Hiscock or something like that. Then he could go by E. Norm Hiscock.

    I once knew a Greek guy named Harry Paratestes.

    There's a news announcer for NW Public Radio by the name of Tom Cocaine. Every time I hear it I can't believe it. How can anyone say that name with a straight face?

    But just think, if he was an ambassador, the other ambassadors could insult him by calling him "smallest dick" in Arabic...

    I work with a dude name Richard Richard. His last name pronounced the French, Ruh-shard. It's still funny, though.
