Are you watching the Kentucky Derby? What do you think of these horse names?
Ah, the Kentucky Derby: Mint Julips, cool fashion (fancy hats!), a celebrity crowd and ... oh, right, a horse race that's also known as "The Greatest Two Minutes in Sports." This year's 4-legged contenders include Daddy Nose Best, I'll Have Another, and Rousing Sermon, Daddy Long Legs, and Done Talking.
Those are some cute, creative names right? And the names of the horses are no laughing matter (or maybe they are, but we'll get to that later) -- some people actually place their bets based on their favorite names.
In that spirit, various funny, creative types have been brainstorming possible horse names for future Kentucky Derby races and they've come up with some doozies.
ESPN asked its Twitter followers, "If you owned a Kentucky Derby horse, what would you name it?" And got these in response:
You are the Father
Runs With Beer
The Gelded Age
Why the Long Face
Over at Bleacher Report, columnist Gabe Zaldivar came up with these should-have-been Kentucky Derby horse names (among others), which are accompanied by photos that you've got to see (check out "Horse"):
Cool Story Bro
Tickle Me Elmo
My Other Horse is an Ass
Jessica Simpson Hell Spawn
Kimye (Get it? Kim K & Kanye --the new Brangelina!)
NPR asked readers to submit hypothetical horse names (they had to follow a bunch of rules) and here were some of the responses:
Hunga Dunga Dang
Don't Have a Cow
And here are a few mom-themed funnies we'd like to throw into the mix:
Mama Nose Best (I mean c'mon!)
The Buck Stops Here
Not Tonight Honey
Vax to the Max
Wear Your Hat
Breast Is Best
Free Range Trotter
Tanning Without My 5-Year-Old
