In the final episode of ‘I’m Alan Partridge’ Alan was arrested by the police. When asked what his name is he said ‘Bill’. Then he was asked for his second name. ‘Car’. For some reason I find really bad fake names like ‘Bill Car’ amusing*. The kind that people without a creative bone in their body come up with on the spot.
There’s also the scene in simpsons where homer (at moes bar) comes up with a ridiculous fake name and the guy at the end of the bar (who happens to have that name) runs out crying. Can anyone remember what that name was?
And what other bad fake names have been used on TV.
And come up with your own.

On an episode of Green Acres, Oliver and Lisa had somehow gained temporary charge of a bunch of kids and asked one boy his name. Looking through the food in the Douglases’ cupboards, the lad spotted a tin of “Paul’s Canned Franks” and replied: “Paul Frankcan”. When challenged on the obviously fake name, the youth espied a jar of “Carlos’s Hot Peppers” and was similarly unsuccessful in trying to pass himself off as “Carlos Hotpepper”.
In an episode of Danny Thomas’ “Make Room for Daddy”, Rusty gets caught by the police, or a school principal (it was a long time ago). Anyway, not wanting to give his real name he says it is Elvis Earp.
That sounds legit huh? LOL
I think the worst fake name you could possibly use is… Arnold Schwarzeneggar.
After all, most people probably couldn’t spell it, or pronounce it the same way twice. And even the morons who would fall for “Carlos Hotpepper” would stop and think “Hey, you look a lot different from how you do in the movies!”
