Poor Jesus Condom. I’m sure he gets teased mercilessly. What were his parents thinking? Obviously about God and birth control. A great name for a band, yes, but not for a child. Check out other people with very unfortunate names such as Sally Mangina, Batman Bin Suparman, and B.J. Cobbledick here. [Funny or Die] Keep reading »
