The Real King of the World, That's Me

I've often joked, flatly, that instead of naming me John Michael Williams, my parents should have just stamped a bar code on my birth certificate, or named me Baby Human. Not that the generic handle has been a detriment; in fact, I've come to like it by learning to think of it as the name equivalent of Shaker furniture: simple but durable, even elegant in a way. (If by elegant, you mean dull; which you often do, don't lie.)

I just came across a list I had saved a while back. It was the result of visiting a web site, now frustratingly forgotten to me, where you could enter your name and find all web references that take the form of "Your Name is..." It wouldn't take you to a series of links, it would just list the individual sentences beginning that way, out of context. (So it wasn't Google. If you know what it is, please remind me in the convenient "Comments" section located below.)

Obviously, this was one instance when having a common name made for better entertainment. The following is a (very) partial list of the things being said about me out there:
