Okay, this is nothing to do with books but I couldn't resist it. A US blogger has created the Sarah Palin Baby Name Generator. Here's the blurb: 'Sarah Palin has picked out an All-American set of names for her children. There's Track, Trig, Bristol, Willow, and Piper. Ever wonder, what would your name be if Sarah Palin was your mother? Well now you can find out!'
Here's what the name generator told me:
Mary, if you were born to Sarah Palin, your name would be: Tank Dent Palin. Who knows, Tank Dent Palin just might be president one day!
Hmmm - sounds strangely appropriate. My husband Ian comes up with the more exotic sounding Mole Valdez Palin. I also ran a couple of my other blog regulars through just to see ...
Graham, if you were born to Sarah Palin, your name would be: Steam Fangs Palin
Vanda, if you were born to Sarah Palin, your name would be: Strangle Thicket Palin
Rachael, if you were born to Sarah Palin, your name would be (wait for it): Strangle Thicket Palin
Now that's just spooky. Have a go.
