Har har, that is so humorous I have never heard anything like it. :)
Living in Utah, we also get homophone-puns from people who think it is funny
that we are Prophets. (The LDS Church, for those who don't know, is led by
a man we revere as a prophet.) One day a couple of sweet young female
Mormon missionaries knocked on my door; they are not given lists, so they
never know if someone already belongs to our church or not. They were both
Taiwanese and were completely floored when I introduced myself as Sister
Proffitt. In retrospect, I wonder if they thought I was mocking them....
And we have in fact made more than a 100% Proffitt in our four children.
Pity we can't get that kind of return on our investments.
