Broadcasting Fake Names


OK, how many fake names can you catch here? You may have to watch twice, especially during the anniversary section, where they dropped the middle initials. This kind of thing happens all the time in broadcasting. Continue reading for more examples, plus some real names that are just as good.

Some are real, some are as fake as those in the video, but all are names you'll not soon forget.

Mike Litoris was the name given by a homeowner who was burned out in California during the wildfires last year. In a situation like that, it takes a sharp mind to pull this one off.

Dixie Normous is the fictional female lead in the movie-within-the-movie entitled Austinpussy featured in Austin Powers in Goldmember. Now a proud (and sweepstakes-winning) resident of Byron, Minnesota.

Mike Hunt ran for office in Aiken, South Carolina. The signs are collector's items, I'm sure.

Dick Rider ran for office in San Diego County.

Now that was a Hugh-Jass wedding.

Next assignment: find out when Bigus Dickus' birthday is.

Guess Seymour Titts doesn't celebrate his birthday until next week..

Boy, these people are really clueless, aren't they??

I think it was sweeps month...get people talking, get them watching, send them off to their day with a chuckle and a smile....

One of the local channels does birthday announcements but it kind of creeps me out, because most of them are kids--which seems cool because they're famous for the day--until you realize that you are announcing your child's interests/fun facts, age, and photo to the general public, including the local sex offenders.

And Cindy, they didn't announce Seymour Titts' birthday because he was on vacation--first Mardi Gras, then a month spent doing the Spring Break circuit.

I thought Dixie Nourmous was the name Bigus Dickus adopted when he fought the Civil War along with the confederates...

Years ago a woman in my town ran for sheriff- her name was (and I swear this is true) Robin Rape.

I don't find these humorous.
