    WW wasn't formed until 1989, so it was probably a fore runner. I seem to remember he was in some sort of position in the water industry in the 1960's

    Recall working with a chap from Thailand or similar, he used to joke about his middle name Poon F*K Su.

    There's a dentist near me called Weh. (German for sore). I have a colleague called Fux, and I once worked with an Indian called Kautulip. He soon modified it to Kauship.
    Down with racism. Long live miscegenation!
