Parents name their kids the craziest things. But an infant Cubs fan named "Waitle Nex Yeare" is too good to be true.
But there it was in the Tribune's birth announcements page this week.
Turns out, Suki and Justa Crappi are not the worst parents in the world (nor the goofiest named people ever, hello!), they don't exist. Their grandmother wasn't a Cubs fan either.
The birth announcement was a hoax; the brainchild of Rick Kaempfer, who runs Justonebadcentury.com.
"It's not so much a hoax as it is a political statement," Kaempfer said.
He got the idea for the name while he was watching a Cubs vs. Dodgers game with a buddy.
"Right then I knew their season was over," Kaempfer said. "So I said 'Wait till next year is born again'."
"We came up with the idea of putting a birth announcement in the paper, but we never thought the Tribune would actually run it."
But they did, and then the story started spreading across the blogosphere, even landing on the popular Deadspin.com.
This story is rather believable because people do name their kids stupid stuff, like Addison N. Clark, for instance. But it looks like you'll have to wait till next time for "Waitle Nex Yeare".
