Wow. If that person feels that strongly about the name “Cox”, they’d really hate the name of an engineering firm that used to have an office in my town: Cumming Cockburn Ltd.

They’ve since changed their name to “IBI Group”, which is better … but is only one letter away from IBS.

Cox’s response is that of a man who’s been dealing with this schoolyard BS since he was a child.

It’s pronounced “Ahs-weep-a”

Or:

It’s spelled “Raymond Luxury Ya-cht, but it’s pronounced Throat Warbler Mangrove.”

What Governor Cox should do is definitely change his name… to “Cocks.”

I guess “I Like Cox” has been ruled out by his campaign manager?

Wait until they meet my friend Jess Fuchs.

Both my first and last names are unusual. My last name rhymes with an internal organ. I’m 62 years old and I still get people popping up with one of the obvious nicknames with a look on their face like “I bet no-one has ever thought of that one before!!” Yes. Yes indeed that one has been thought of before. People have been thinking of that one since I was 6. Thanks for trying!
