Default Bonzo?

Posted this a long time ago when Mr Slugger owned the board and I was a retail minion. One of my customers was a really good person, and she told me about the time she took her golden retriever to the vet's for a check up.

She went in to the waiting room with her hound and sat down, nodding pleasantly at the other people waiting. A moment or two later, the vet came out of his examination room reading a piece of paper.

He looked up. "Bonzo?" he called out, looking around. Not one of the dogs stirred. "Bonzo?" He whistled a couple of times. "Bonzo? Here boy!"

A very well-dressed lady next to my former customer stood up, holding the lead to her red setter. "It's Mrs Bonzo, actually," she said in a tone that could cut ice.

Talk about unfortunate names! And I thought a friend of mine with the surname 'Burke' had problems...

Hey, I've met a guy whose last name was Timm. A man who had less love for Monty Python I have never met.

At TTO's high school, the groundskeeper's surname was Tickles. They named their daughter Theresa.
What's the pet name form of Theresa?

Either the vet should've read the paperwork better or the woman could've filled it out better.

I'm surprised the vet didn't look around the waiting room for a chimpanzee - accompanied by a B-movie actor who later went into politics.

I once had a customer with the last name of "Schmuck". I'm sure he got a lot of flack for that...

I had a customer named Jason Vorhees. Smoked American Spirits. Kinda short and skinny. With a glare that could topple mountains. I joked once about his name.

Plaidman never was the same afterwards.

I've had customers with the last names of Batman (pronounced Bateman) and Hamburger as well as a customer named Paul Apostle. When The Lord of the Rings movies were in the theatres, I had a conversation with an Indian kid named Rohan, who was a little tired of people asking where the rest of his riders were.
