The real names of 23 fictional characters.
 
A link I just found for a list of the full and real names of 23 fictional characters. Real interesting, I didn't know any of these really. :eek:

I actually knew around 5 of those. The others were interesting - some especially because it didn't even occur to one that they had other or longer names.

Same here, I didn't know quite a few of them even existed.

21. MacGyver's first name? Angus.

I knew that one. Mostly from mythbusters.

WTF?

I don't know smeezekitty's real name, but could his initials be WTF? :)

Cavity Sam is very gruesome.

It is unfortunate that the link had no citations, making it useless as a resource for research. (We have one citation on MacGyver thanks to H_TeXMex_H, but It'd be better if it were referenced with regard to episode or date.) Considering the subject matter, on the other hand, I'd probably have to agree with smeezekitty.

Fun with letters - I was just watching an episode of the final season of Corner Gas. The CAFE sign was missing its last two letters so the owner says "Where's my F and E"? A woman who was coming in with her young son quickly covers his ears and says "Let's go somewhere that they don't talk like that." :D
