    Remember, Frankenstein was the name of the doctor, not of the monster.

      • drfish

      …and Jaws was not the shark’s name.

        But they call the wind Mariah.

        My recollection was the crew called the shark… Bruce.

          • drfish
          • 2 years ago

          Yeah, but that was the robot’s name, not the shark’s.

      You don’t need to say remember because it’s apparent few even are aware and therefore couldn’t remember when asked.

      And his first name was Froderick, and he went on to show his schwanzstucker to Teri Garr.

      Also, without the eruption of Tambora in 1815, Mary Shelley would likely never have written [i<]Frankenstein[/i<]. [url<]http://nautil.us/issue/31/stress/the-volcano-that-shrouded-the-earth-and-gave-birth-to-a-monster[/url<]

      That’s what Victor kept telling me, but the guy has to take some responsibility. If the monster he created does not take his last name… then whose??

        • chuckula
        • 2 years ago

        Count Chuckula might take the blame.

      • PrincipalSkinner

      And my name is not Seymour.

        • Wirko

        That’s no news. If your name isn’t Leonard, well, that’s news.
