Man, I pity that kid... all through his life, he'll be screaming at his parent as he can't find dates.
This is why I'm naming my kid Gunpowder Jackson.

Exactly.

I couldn't help but think that there must be someone out there named "Drew Peacock" who is reading this article (probably forwarded form a "friend") and realizing this double entendre for the first time.

The Citizens Infringement Officer fined someone for naming their baby "Pegasus Ezekiel". And I believe he was right to do so, that's such a stupid wanky name...
