Someone should probably get a 2x4 and go take a few whacks at Jennifer Moss, Mallory Moss, Susan Moss, Kate Glinsmann, and their mother Margaret "Grandma Maggie" Moss.

Why, you ask? Because they are the ones responsible for Babynames.com. With "bad baby names" more rampant than ever, they have the gall to have this site up, helping people find even more obscure and hideous names to make their children's lives Hell for 18 years.

Their worst offences? The lists of Tolkien names (because every child wants to have to sign their school papers with the names Fimbrethil, Rohirrim, and Farmer Maggot) and Spooky Names (because, of course, your child will never get teased for having a name like Ginnungagap, Sasquatch, or Ghidora). All this from a a site that claims to have "been heralded as one of the top parenting sites on the internet by such publications as FamilyPC Magazine, The Chicago Tribune, The Washington Post and Yahoo! Internet Life. If that's "top parenting", it's no wonder this country is in the state it's in.

I hate it here.
