Another Meme: Lynn

This one stolen from klwalton

Your Name Here

Name: Lynn

Literal meaning

"The doctors say we should try to raise it as a girl and see how things go."


Famously confined to the Scottish Highlands, then to prison, then to bed in a rush, the name Lynn was originally used inappropriately to refer to the dead, before it escaped to France with the help of sympathisers.

Famous Lynns

1. Chief Scientist Lynn Oaf-Jesus, co-writer of INDIANA JONES AND THE AFTERNOON AT THE HAIRDRESSER'S; ghost-writer of Noele Gordon's poorly bound autobiography, TOOT-A-TWANG-TWANG; first holder of the office of Gross Miscarriager of Justice;
2. Lynn Grating-Happenstance, for a time, in their own mind, romantically linked with a creature from the id; ghost-writer of The St Winifred's School Choir's anarchist's handbook and autobiography, I WAS MONTY'S THUG;
3. Lynn Mapduster, disgusted by the Brass Nose;
4. Brigadier-General Lynn Nivea, proponent of the Bakelite Diet;
5. Professor Lynn Proms, fascinated to death by Evap-o-Floor; last holder of the office of Her Majesty's Punchbag;
6. Lynn Frote, MD, first victim of the Formidable Coat;
7. Lynn J Ach, populariser of the legendary Source of the Thames;
8. Lynn Sprokes-Millington, champion of the right to use Tramp Drink;
9. Lynn S'Ess, belittler of a nice cup of tea;
10. Lynn Frewsy, aroused by more types of bacterial infection than any four people can name; first holder of the office of Chancellor of the Eggs Checker.

Typical Lynn motto

"I'm sure I had it this morning."
