Reminds me of when Jeremy Lin became a household name for his play with The New York Knicks. One reporter said, "Is there a chink in his armour?" He got fired for that.

That NTSB intern shares my sense of humor. When my girlfriend was teaching I sent her a text asking if she had a Jenna Till in any of her classes. She said no, I told her to ask the kids in her class if they knew her, she did. Hehe

That's almost as bad as the girl who went on the P A system to ask "has anybody seen Mike Hunt?"

I had 2 classes my first year of college with a Mike Hunt, he was older (mid 20's) and must have come from money based on the way he carried himself and dressed. Very preppy, turtle necks, scarves ect. He had a stick up his butt. The professor read through the names the first day and when she got to Mike Hunt he said "I only go by Michael." I bet you do LOL. We didn't get along that well for whatever reason, there was alot of open discussion and we would get tangled up.

The following semester I showed up early for a first class and there is good old Mike Hunt sitting in the room and we both looked at each other like "oh great, you're in this class?" I sat down and he left the room, probably to go to the bathroom or something, meanwhile the professor came in. Now my name is also Mike and I never go by Michael, but I introduced myself to the teacher and told her that I prefer to be called Michael if she wouldn't mind. "No problem Michael" Eventually the professor does roll call. "Mike Hunt".. "right here, I go by Michael though" The teacher said, well Mr. Hunt there is already someone in class that asked to be called Michael so you're going to be Mike, ok? "Yea, that's fine I guess" and he turned and looked at me while he said it. He was so pissed! That old teacher did roll call every class for a couple months while she learned our names, I think I even have recordings on an old cell phone of her saying "Mike Hunt" haha
