Another unfortunate celebrity baby name

Newpennteller_1Add another weird celebrity baby name to the list, which already includes Apple (Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin’s girl) and Indiana August (Casey Affleck and Summer Phoenix’s offspring—we can’t tell the gender from the name, and frankly, we’re not going to waste time looking it up). Penn Jillette, the talking half of comedy/magic duo Penn & Teller (shown here), has named his new baby girl Moxie CrimeFighter Jillette. “What the #%@&?!” you ask. Jillette explains: “We chose her middle name because when she’s pulled over for speeding she can say, ‘But officer, we’re on the same side.’ My middle name is CrimeFighter.” Who will put this man in a straitjacket, dump him in a sealed tank of water, and throw away the key?
