Weird But True

In the News: Parents Name Newborn Daughter “Hashtag”

Yes, as in a Twitter hashtag.

Silver lining #1:  At least they can call her Hash for short — okay, scratch that one.

Silver lining #2:  Word has it she is already a better speller than her family and friends.  So she has that going for her.  (Plus she’s pretty darn cute.)

Silver lining #3:  At least she isn’t Prince’s daughter.  In which case, her name would be just the symbol:  #.

Candy Kirby is the founder of The Laughing Stork and a professional fun-maker who will never stop chasing her lifelong dream: to find the Pomeranian or porn star after whom her parents must have named her. A humor columnist for Disney, Nickelodeon, Scary Mommy, Reductress and Redbook, she also used to be a staff writer for the soap opera, The Bold and the Beautiful, where she penned many scripts featuring prolonged heated stares and countless “Who’s the Daddy?” story lines. Candy lives in Los Angeles with her husband, two young kids and three rescue Persian cats, the latter of whom are the real brains behind this operation (so send all complaints to them).
