Once worked on a fairly short drilling contract with a fella from Pakistan, ( Ex infantry), His surname was Banga, the rest of the drilling crew used to take the P*ss, as his other half's name was Lashme, I also get a laugh while watching the news while lying in on a Saturday morning, just take a bit more notice of the sub titles giving the reporters name or the interviewee's! some of the subject matter really jives with the name/s.
