    Sounds like something Elmer Fudd would say.

    As a teacher, ive seen some dooseys. Once taught a girl named KC (pronounced casey) I was marking the roll and i kept saying, yeah i know your initialls but what is your name?! Nearly sent her outside because i thought she was being defiant lol.
    Once taught a girl named 'wonita' (supposed to be spelt 'juanita'). Her family were carnies so not very literate.
    Taught a girl who said she was driving past a paddock and saw a beautiful name on an old oil drum 'kerosene' (she pronounced it 'kerosonie') and named her daughter that.
    Although on the flipside, taught a girl named shevaun (which is usually spelt 'siobhan') so im glad her parents spelt that phonetically.
    I mostly dislike when kids names are misspelt e.g. tieghan. They say to me, "miss, youve misspelt my name" and i feel like saying, "no, your parents misspelt your name when they filked in your birth certificate forms" lol.
