Nacho Libre...One of the greatest movies of all time
Chancho = Mexican slang for pig, a person who eats like a pig
We finally named our cat. Since he eats all the food in the house (his, the dogs, ours) this is a very appropriate name. We were having such a hard time naming him something that describe his general appearance that when Dave came up with this name I sighed a sigh of relief. We voted on Sunday. Four votes for Chancho and one for socks (poor Kate). We told Katie who started crying that the cat wasn't going to be Socks that she could use socks as his middle name. so she calls the cat Chancho socks. And for the first day or so after we named him she corrected everyone that called him Chancho. "No, it's Chancho Socks" you could hear her saying throughout the day.
What other names were up for consideration? The kids had a list on the bulletin board where they wrote down any ideas and who came up with them. Here is a sampling:
*speck, smudge, socks, boots, ali, thomas, roadkill, chainsaw, pepper, corn beef hash with a tail, coon, mo jo, bo, moe, pouncer, oreo, coal, fuzzy, rosco, whiskers, mittens, speedy, and baby
I think Dave is secretly very happy his name for a pet finally won an election!
