to think that if you go through a thread on here just reading the names it sounds like the commentary on the horse racing?

Try it. Its almost impossible to do it with out hearing the horse racing commentator's voice in your head.

My name was a race horse grin

ShatnersBassoon Tue 10-Sep-13 17:42:42

I've just tried to find out if there has been a horse called Shatner's Bassoon, and it seems as if there is, but only on a gambling machine game that's popular in America confused

mrspremise Tue 10-Sep-13 18:10:53

I now need a pony called Mrs Premise grin

MrsWedgeAntilles Tue 10-Sep-13 18:54:04

BodaciousTatas? How did they get that past the horse naming folk? Or do I just have a dirty mind?

Bodacious Tatas was indeed a racehorse! She was born in 1985 and raced 15 times in the USA, winning 5 times and over $400,000 in prize money.

The rules in America, where this horse was born, are slightly different, they will allow things that the UK won't and vice versa.

I don't think my name would pass muster at wetherbys. "And Twattybollocks has run a blinder....."

A mad horse destined for a cheap lasagne? confused

Skinheadmermaid Tue 10-Sep-13 20:39:38

I'd be very surprised if a racehorse had my name (would be epic though-i bet the queen would use the name!)

Does my Latin outweigh my swears?

Someone tried to name horses Wearthefoxhat and Norfolknchance a few years back. Try saying the names quickly in an Irish accent wink

Grr, too fast, I was just thinking of the Alan Partridge thing, not long names or Alf Ramsey's porn dungeon.

BlackeyedSusan England Tue 10-Sep-13 21:35:39

the norfolk and chance name copped up on radio four. still makes me giggle. I now have wear the fox hat to go with it. grin

I will share with you all my namesake

If you've never heard of him, just watch the video and see why many people call him the best horse that has ever lived. He even has his own website grin

So raging I didn't think of "onion terror" or "trust me I'm a stomach" as names when I joined MN envy

natwebb79 Tue 10-Sep-13 21:40:16

Actually pissing myself at 'Twattybollocks has run a blinder'! grin

FoundAChopinLizt Tue 10-Sep-13 21:40:18

Am I banned? Or did I fall at the first fence?

Alf Ramsay's Porn Dungeon smile
Years ago Rich Hall did an advert where he stood on a rain soaked Scottish hillside in a fur cap. He said "Auchtermuchty, everyone said 'wear the Fox hat"

MikeLitoris Argentina Tue 10-Sep-13 21:44:21
