When it comes to awful names, usually black folks take the cake. Random apostrophes can be thrown into names unexpectedly, causing confusion and hesitation: Brook’Lynn, for example, is just wrong and stupid for no damn good reason.

Hashtag Jameson popped into this world on Saturday evening at around 10 o’clock, a precious little bird weighing eight pounds and possessing at least seven fingers—the full extent of what the only identifying picture shows.
Save the babies, Lord. Save the babies.
