Name game

I went to the pharmacy today to pick up a prescription. When I looked inside the paper sleeve the bottle of pills came in (in order to extract the medicine and the medication fact sheet), I saw this advertisement had been inserted into my order as well:

When I saw the name I immediately thought, “Seriously?” And I chuckled.

Do you get it? If not, look at the top of the picture a bit more closely.

Dr. Dockter? Of course it reminded me of this tune:

I wonder how often poor Chad gets chided about the union of his name with his profession…


(P.S. What’s up with minute 1:08?Β  Yet another smile to this whole deal…)Β  πŸ™‚

    Great post! I watched the video because I love the song, but also because I was curious about the 1:08 mark. Man, did it get me laughing. Thank you for getting my day off to a positive start!!

    Poor Doctor Chad πŸ™‚
    1:08 is wonderful.
    Check it out again at 1:37 and 2:11


  5. You definitely have to wonder about that one…not sure I’d trust a doctor names Dr. Dockter! lol

      I know! The intellectual, rational part of me says, “Oh, Stef, that’s just silly” – but still, the ‘feeling’ part of me thinks the whole thing is kind of… bizarre. And funny. πŸ™‚

    LOVED this post — but not for the reasons put forth in it!
    Yeah, it’s funny about Doctor Dockter — but for me that song was BORN in The Big Chill. Oh, I knew it was a sound track of nostalgic songs — but I’d never heard it before — or any of the other fabulous songs (not my nostalgia) — so the movie was a revelation both for eyes and ears!
    But I never bothered to find out about the group actually singing it, and here you are bringing them right into my house to visit!!!!!


    • Stef says:

      Judith, you are most welcome! Interestingly, I’ve never seen The Big Chill – I learned this song from the ‘oldies’ station on the radio as a kid. (It was my dad’s preferred channel.)


      • Touch2Touch says:

        I absolutely LOVED that movie, and even play the CD in the car, where I mostly prefer silence.
        What you would make of it, I have no idea. It’s about life and death, old friends and reunions — As I say, it wasn’t my nostalgia, I’m older than their time period. You’re younger than their time period — but maybe old enough that the themes will resonate for you in their own way.
        And besides, it’s got a young Kevin Kline! What could be bad? πŸ˜‰


      • Stef says:

        If I recall, the entire movie cast is one of rock stars. Glenn Close, Jeff Goldblum, William Hurt, Meg Tilly… not a bad bunch at all. πŸ™‚ (And Kevin Kline went to my undergraduate alma mater, AND he speaks French; so I have a soft spot for him in my heart…) πŸ˜‰


  7. Haha, too funny! I thought funny names like that were more jokes than reality! I love that the guy’s first name is the same as my husband’s, though! πŸ™‚


  8. Stef says:

    I know – I’ve never even heard of such a name example in a ‘real life’ situation; only as jokes. But now I can say I have!

    Say “hi” to your husband Chad for me; cool connection. πŸ™‚


  9. Touch2Touch says:

    Kevin Kline went to your undergraduate alma mater? (Which is?)
    AND he speaks French?
    Be still, my heart! Six degrees of separation, or less —
    (Did I mention that I have just discovered and joined a weekly French Conversation group? Quel grand plaisir!)


    • Stef says:

      I went to Indiana University (in Bloomington, IN) for my undergrad. Et, un des mes degrees est dans le francais. (Terrible grammar and all.) πŸ˜‰ I’ve considered joining a French conversation group here, but haven’t yet been moved enough to make the commitment… You’ll have to let me know what you think!
