Behave, Nonnie

A tipster sent me a candidate for this blog’s ever-growing series “Ha Ha — This Person’s Name.”


As with my entry on Dickson Poon, I am slightly hesitant to have a laugh at this woman on grounds that her name doesn’t fit my Western conception of “normal.” All the same, ha ha ha. Bonus points for having a last name that sounds like a command to a Poseidon Adventure character to comport herself properly.


  1. First, K-K B is a really nice person. Second, it's pronounced "koom," not the way that would be unfortunate. Third, big props for the highly obscure Poseidon Adventure allusion. Today is Carol Lynley's birthday, btw.

  2. Aw, I knew making fun of people who live in Santa Barbara would eventually result in me chosing someone familiar to someone who reads this blog. Perhaps I will avoid doing this in the future. Incidentally, is Nonnie obscure? I feel like everyone should have seen that movie by now. They play it on AMC all the time. Shared cultural heritage and all that.

  3. It was my first PG movie, so it's near and dear to my heart. But my heart's kinda odd, so I figured calling out a character's name in the film was tricky.
