Did You Grow Up With An "Odd" Name?

While I grew up with a perfectly normal first and middle name, my last name was "Beane".

Yes, I heard all of the cute and funny puns that could be made from such a moniker. I was called "butter bean", "string bean", "jelly bean", "human bean", and since my Dad was in the Navy, even "Navy bean". You think of something with "bean" and I was called it!

But I suffered nothing compared to Marijuana Pepsi Jackson. And yes, that is her first and middle name as given her by her mother at birth!

Take a moment a read all about Marijuana Pepsi's plight Milwaukee-Wisconsin Journal Sentinel.
