We named our child Bricktop James O’Sullivan, thinking it was a tough name that would deter children and adolescents when our boy was old enough to go to school or play sports from bullying him or even looking him up and down, so afeared they’d be of his name, which in fact means strong, mighty, or physically daunting as piss.
Well we couldn’t of been more wrong. See the name Bricktop in fact seems only to encourage them mean little ones from saying all kind of nasty things to our boy about his beautiful natural red hair.
Hey carrot top, the little wankers will shout, even when Bricktop is nearly inside our house, running for his life! They shout, If you was more ginger you’d be a vegetable, and they only scatter when I emerge from the side garden with my baton.
Come on Bricktop, get out there and show them what you’re made of, boy.
