A tribute to Ryan Todd.


Today, one my phone conversations turned to the topic of humorous names. At my previous job, at a large food and beverage company, I worked in the information security division. That meant that I was constantly creating and denying access for users across the entire system. Users in the US, Canada, Thailand, Brazil, China, and dozens of other countries. During that time, my friend and co-worker, Ryan Todd, and I would encounter dozens of hilarious names. Ryan and I sat next to each other, so it was easy to share these names. Eventually, we decided that these names needed to be documented for posterity. I present you with "Great Names in History (current as of 5/15/07)":

Also, after sending me "Great Names in History" today, Ryan followed up by sending this amazing video, appropriately enough with the subject line "Don't let your kids walk into a breakdance circle." Enjoy:



Ryan, thank you for bringing so much joy into my heart today. Here is another fabulous picture of Ryan.
