The name game

In New Zealand if you have filed,
A numeric name for your child,
It will be struck down,
By the law with a frown,
Cause it may be '4real' but its wild!

Yahoo News 21/06/07: New Zealand authorities have blocked a couple's bid to officially name their new son "4real," saying numerals are not allowed. Get the story here


  1. discovered your blog by chance,
    and it has left me in a trance...
    wish i knew the trick,
    to come up with a cricmeric,
    that will strike in me a resonance

    how's that? anyway, do check out my cricket blog Cricketkeeper and see if it provokes you to write a cricmeric.

  2. Hi Sumit,

    welcome to my blog and hey that was a neat piece :-)
