    TUCSON, Ariz. — NASA officials say plans for the Phoenix Mars Lander's second day of activities on Mars have been delayed. They say it's because of a problem in relaying communications from one of two Mars orbiters relaying commands from Earth.

    Fuk Li, manager of the Mars exploration program for NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, Calif., says that a "transient event" on the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter turned its UHF radio off. That stopped communications between it and the lander.

    How's it going, Fuk? Or if you're a big fan of his work, are you a Fukhead?

    A friend had a college physics from who went by the name of Dr. F.T. Hioe.

    Turns out the dude's actual first name was Fok, as in Fok Hioe.

    I think Fug Li may actually be worse...

    True story: My son-in law's given name is William Lane Blow. Go ahead and figure out all the interesting ways that plays out. He obviously goes by Lane Blow. Until he married the daughter. At which point he changed his last name to to HER last name. Not kidding.

    The Morning News has/had a metro columnist named Steve Blow. The pronunciation rhymed with plow.

    I don't know. Will Blow and Will Lane Blow are pretty darn bad.
