un-eye-ons

I once met a lawyer in Birmingham with the name of Prat.
As he charged about £250 an hour for anything he did (18 years ago) - I reckon he was very well named.

I also used to go to middle school with a girl named Lynn Onions.

When we moved to senior school and all the teachers were doing a register of the new kids in each class, a southern woman teacher called her name out as "Oh niy ons".

Everyone was baffled and no one answered "here".

"Come on, come on!" screeched the teacher "I know Lynn Oh niy ons must be here as the required number are present"

It gradually dawned on Lynn that she was must be the 'Oh niy ons' in question - and said "here" - her face the colour of a beetroot, such was the embarrassment.

"Don't be so impudent in future!" came the ridiculous remark from the teacher.

I've never forgotten it - and how wrong that teacher was.

Lynn was a cracking lass and no one had ever taken the mick out of her name before. She was Lynn Onions. That was that.

All of a sudden, this idiotic teacher was pronouncing it in an incorrect way - and blaming Lynn for not replying to something so unusual to the ears no one had a clue who she was referring to.

Of course, after that, poor old Lynn was ribbed mercilessly about her name with all the new people at the new school.
What a ratbag of a teacher.

He had the first "flick knife" that I ever saw, and we would mess around with it,

Had a boss once whose surname was Onions, and he pronounced it O'Nions, so the teacher's mistake wasn't all that dumb, although it was a bit off to be rude.

There were quite a few people of Polish descent at my school who pronounced their surnames completely wrong. The Yanks also get it wrong quite often, insisting on pronouncing their ws as ws and not vs, the impudent b*stards.

History Maker, this is Stoke - where an onion is a bleedin' onion!

Even the most pretentious pillock going wouldn't dare to call him/herself 'Ohniyon' here, unless they wanted to be laughed out of town.

The teacher was a southerner.
Perhaps she too was new to the school and didn't realise what a berk she was making of herself (which Lynn unfortunately also caught the flack from).
Thinking about it: I can't remember seeing that teacher again.
Perhaps she did us all a favour and went back to the land of Ohniyons.

Dr Crippen, perhaps your Pratt was the same as the one I met. I wouldn't be surprised if he had the whole of the Midlands wrapped up by now.
He was a top frog in contract law - and charged accordingly.

I'm pretty sure there used to be a jockey called this.

I don't follow racing like I used to, but I'm pretty sure there was a jumps jockey called Malcolm Bas tard in the 80's, who often used to ride for a trainer called Sly.

When they had a winner it was a Sly Bas tard combination.


Or did I make this up?
