This afternoon, a student and I were comparing strange English and Japanese names. She was confident that Japanese names were stranger sounding than English ones. Until.. I produced the following list on bizarre English names.
1. The ancient Babylonians were the first to brew beer
2. Beer is composed mostly of water
3. Beer must be stored upright
4. In 1814, a brewery tank ruptured, causing a tidal wave in London
5. Vikings believed that a beer-bearing goat was waiting for them in the afterlife
