"Lance" is a horrible name. I don't know who in their right mind would name their kid "Lance". %-6 :-P :-t ;-7

Lance is a horrible name. Especially if your last name is also one syllable, and you have the same nasally-sounding vowel sound in each name.

Lance Knapp. What a blah name.

When I was born I was Lance Welchel. I was the son of a Lance Corporal in the Marine Corps, who vowed that his first son would be named Lance. I was his first and only, so I got the prize. Then bad things happened and he left the picture, and my dad (Mr. Knapp) came into the story and adopted my sister and I, and I became the person I am today.

But then I was left with Lance frikkin’ Knapp as a name, and it’s been underwhelming ever since.

I think Lance is a fine name. Kind of like Lancelot. I actually like "Knapp" better than "Welchel", but I don't think either would be a bad name.

My middle name is "Leas" prounounced "lease" which is an old family name. I used to hate it, but now it doesn't bother me. I guess we should both just be glad our name isn't "Iman S. Hole". :-b

I think they're called florets when it's just the tops of the broccoli. When there's a couple inches of the stem/stalk/whatever you want to call it attached, they are spears. so you're both right :-)

The best part about this whole thing was that their mom was writing a book about parenting. That publisher should have been flogged for considering that before this even happened. Of course, now it will sell more copies due to the publicity. :-P

Yeah, I knew they put it on hold. You know some struggling publisher will pick it up though.

I have a similar story Knapp. My bio-dad left when I was 2 and my brother was 1. I was adopted when I was 7 when my mom remarried.

I've known three Lances in my life and they've all been large men. One I went to school with was easily 230 and well over 6 feet. My current buddy, though I haven't hung out with him in probably over a year, is pushing 400. Note to prospective parents; if you want a big kid, name him Lance. :-D
