Balram

by Lemonjello Redenbacher on May 29, 2010

Look — I get that there are foreign names out there — like Balram here —  that simply sound different to someone in America, even though they are commonplace in whatever country/region they are from.  That, unfortunately, means absolutely nothing to a 6th snarky 6th grader with a rapier’s wit.  Just the same as Larry, Richard or Ed might take a rash of shit on a playground in Brussels, Balram is sure to do the same on a playground in Tallahassee.

In India, Balram may be as common as Parker or Kayla are becoming here in the U.S.   But here in America, kids will call this poor bastard “Ball Ram”, and follow it up with jokes about shoving a swinging set of nuts into his ass crack.  Like it or not, Balram — I hope your parents don’t plan on raising you here in America.  And if they do, you’d better tell them to invest in a suit or armor and an extra heaping of self-esteem.  You’re gonna need it to survive this journey.

This makes me think of the movie Babe, when the sheep say, “Baa Ram Ewe”!
