Bad things happen to people with silly first names

From this mornings post I have updates on more alarming incidents involving people suffering from Silly First Name Syndrome and just from a cursory examination of the news from the past couple of days. I fully expect the Greens to come out shortly calling for a ban on Silly First Names…..but oh hell….Russel and Metiria won’t be able to support that.

In Hamilton

Two young boys missing in Hamilton overnight have been found hiding in bushes at a school.

Taylor Jade Thompson, 10, and Devante Mihinui, eight, who had not been seen since 7.30pm yesterday, were spotted by staff at a Hamilton East school about 8.30am.

The pair have been referred by police to Child, Youth and Family.

In Auckland

Kim Knoll, 19, was found guilty last year of the attempted murder of her two-year-old son Lashawn.

A repeat burglar who became a teenage father in January was jailed today for a year and nine months.

Traan Kino, 17, reacted angrily when sentenced by Judge Paul Geoghegan.
