I actually met X-Files replacement Annabeth Gish once when she was in Texas working on the TV movie "True Women". She seemed like a very nice lady, and I suspect she would not be pleased to know that in comics, her name is the sound a cyborg's head makes as it's punched off its neck by Brad Pitt (if he were a giant other-worldly Hulk rip-off):


I wonder what other celebrity last names are matched with shocking and inappropriate sound effects? Perhaps one day we will see OnomontoPOWia references like "JOLIE!" as an ill-fated henchman gets impaled. "CLOONIE!" might be the sound of a gigantic Nazi-style zeppelin meets Captain Death's grenade launcher. I'm sure there are others, but for now I feel like I've been Gished and can't think of what they might be.

    Jeff, only you could’ve thought of that. Never mind the fact that I’ve not heard of Annabeth Gish until now, I still don’t believe I would’ve brought up such association. All the hats of my seven-headed pet Hydra, Peter, are off to you.

    PS- Yes, calling him “Peter” did have a subtle thing to do with “giving head.” *giggles his tush off*

    Hey Brad…..ummm….What?

  5. Brad says:

    You don’t get it? “Peter” is another nickname for the male genitals. And if I have to explain giving head… well, I’m just not going to on here. I already got my “best and bravest you-know-what” taken off of here, and I refuse to get into any more trouble.
