6. I don't think there is a word 'hoffic.' If there is I have not heard of it and I am a native speaker of English. Anyway I must get back to my job at the baby oil factory, plenty of babies to squeeze today. all the best urban

What happens to the name, when Brookshields marries James Bond - Brooke Bond. It is not confusing, but it is interesting. Haven't you heard of English names of the persons: Carpenter, Arm Strong!! In local languages, we have names of the people such as Onion, Garlic, Chillies etc. These prople hail from North Karnataka, India.
