    ‘Howard’ is the name of the god of mooning and flashing.

    Wait a gosh darn minute! You mean, it’s NOT Howard????? OMG! No wonder God never answered my prayers for a new BMW, I was using the wrong name. From now on, it’ will be Dear Hal.

    That’s like my friend who used to think god was called Peter because they always said “Thanks Peter god” in her church…

    I always loved that story.

    I always liked a similar one about a cross-eyed bear called Gladly.

    Yes, the song was “Gladly, the cross I’d bear”…

    Oh, and as for it being a regular list – check out Private Eye, it’s been doing these for ages now…

    Howard is probably a good friend of Art in Heaven.

    Lyle, my mother-in-law has a bear named “Gladly”.

    I also like “the piece of cod that passeth all understanding”

    When my brother in law was a kid, he thought it was “Harold be thy name”…his name is (you guessed it) Harold! Makes more sense than the hallowed thing anyway!

    Do you get the idea that your fans want you back?

    […] I really don’t understand the logic – it’s not as though reciting the Lords Prayer in school every morning for decades helped the Church of England, is it?! Let alone the comedy value in all those children growing up thinking that God’s name was Harold or Howard. […]
