WTF.

MrsKeithRichards Thu 30-Aug-12 19:48:28

You got a card of your brother signed in some random name?

Teamumizumi Thu 30-Aug-12 19:48:35

Was it a joke? Who's Kenneth Branagh anyway?

Euphemia Thu 30-Aug-12 19:50:10

Who's Kenneth Branagh?! shock

PureMorning Thu 30-Aug-12 19:50:23

My dad writes his full name then puts (i.e your father) at the the bottom of the card

blueraincoat Thu 30-Aug-12 19:50:55

That's brilliant. grin

complexnumber Thu 30-Aug-12 19:51:18

Oh professor lockheart in Harry potter, I know who he is! grin

firemansamisnormansdad Thu 30-Aug-12 19:55:50

He wrote "happy birthday love XXX, XXX and XXXX (Kenneth Branagh). there are 3 of them in the family so i don't know whether they're expecting again and are going to call the new baby Kenneth Branagh or whether they've got a new cat. Kenneth Branagh is an actor who was married to Emma Thompson and was Professor Lockhart in the 2nd Harry Potter film. He is currently Wallendar and was the bloke in the top hat at the Olympics opening ceremony who everyone thought was Abraham lincoln. But still, totally random.

Never heard of Kenneth?
(shakes head at ignorance of the young these days)

He is an object of lust for many on MN.

StuntGirl Thu 30-Aug-12 19:56:43

Er...ask him?

TallDwarf Thu 30-Aug-12 19:59:32

I think it's quite funny! grin

BerthaKitt Thu 30-Aug-12 20:00:37

Did your SIL sign her name as Sharon or did she use a made-up one too?

Mooskit Thu 30-Aug-12 20:03:23

My DH once signed my birthday card with his signature, I have never let him forget it smile

QuangleWangleQuee Thu 30-Aug-12 20:05:56

Baffling. Please ask him.

DisabilEightiesChick Thu 30-Aug-12 20:06:13

Is he referring to his DC? Who has maybe taken up 'performing' to the family lately? Or are they old enough to be doing drama classes or something? Just a guess.

HTH,
Laurence Olivier.

I agree, he's gone into Am Dram.

And it's Sir Kenneth Branagh.

My brother put in my wedding card "now that you are married, your naked couplings will no longer make the baby Jesus cry". He was joking, I think.

In the card when I had ds he put "congrats on yer crab". Ds is a cancer.

picnicbasketcase Thu 30-Aug-12 20:10:28

I just did a very loud cackle at the 'naked couplings' thing, that is brilliant grin

MeanAndMeaslyGabeeshAges Thu 30-Aug-12 20:11:39

Has anyone ever told him he looks like Ken?

Youmakemewanna I like your brother's style! Sort of things I would say smile

Baby is about 9 months old. A bit young to be soliloquising...
