Hoboken Morning Tidbits: 5/17/2011
Happy Tuesday, Hoboken!
Here’s a couple minor nuggets to get your day started: Worst baby name ever, high in the sky and more lost pets.
Who names their child after an internet fad?
As I’m sure you might possibly have heard, one couple in Jerusalem just named their baby girl “Like,” after the dopey button on Facebook. They thought it was unique – and even came up with another “reason” for picking this utterly ridiculous & trendy name to justify their collossal mistake.
Sure, millions of people use it daily, on their wireless phones, and have become hooked. However, some folks even believe Facebook is going in reverse by making it much like a previous company we still love to hate – and something new will emerge in time (is there ever an “end all be all?”)
But I wonder how many kids out there named “HuffPo,” “Boo,” “AOL,” or “Flooz” have since changed their names.

Another missing cat: “Jinx”
Hoboken411 reader Michael spotted this sign regarding a missing 13-year old female Calico named “Jinx.”
“Jinx was last seen by Lola’s Restaurant. She doesn’t have any tags or collar – and doesn’t have any front claws, so she’s very vulnerable. She may have left out our 1st Floor Apartment which opens to a courtyard that is shared by all the buildings on the block.”
If you find the kitty – you can email Joe.
Hope everyone has a great day today!
