    General Booty sounds like a stripper who comes out in military fatigues.

    There was a big-breasted WCW wrestler from the late 90s named Major Gunns who used that gimmick. She was in a stable with a guy named General Rection.
    Not surprisingly, she began a porn career a few years later.

    My father once had a patient whose name was pronounced feh-MAH-lee and spelled Female.

    So when he got in trouble as a kid, did they call him "Colonel" for a few days as punishment? ("You've been demoted, son!")

    I had a patient who was named Amahreeka. When I stumbled over the pronunciation, her mother gave me the stinkeye and said "It's pronounced America."

    I can imagine Key/Peele as the substitute teacher at JSerra. "Gin-error-al Bootay"

    On a side note, I remember in the mid-90s how Josh Booty was supposed to be the savior of LSU football. He was off playing minor league baseball, and everybody was hoping and praying he'd wash out, come back to play college football, and be LSU's next great quarterback.
    Well, he did turn out to be a key figure in turning the fortunes of the football program around -- by sucking really, really hard.

    Booty was the QB for the 1999 season and had a tenuous grip on the job in 2000. After he stunk it up in an embarrassing home loss to UAB, Nick Saban started giving more and more playing time to Rohan Davey.
    Davey was pretty forgettable to anyone outside of LSU -- and maybe New England, where he won a couple of rings as Tom Brady's backup during the first part of their dynasty -- but he was an absolute stud. Led them to a decent season in 2000 while still splitting time with Booty, won the SEC championship in 2001 (and set LSU's single-game passing record with 500+ yards against Alabama), and set the foundation for the national title a couple of years later.
    So thanks, Josh Booty, for being a washout and helping the program bottom out. If it weren't for you, LSU might still really suck.

    Oops, almost forgot the ear, nose and throat specialist, Dr. Sinotti.
