The proud father.

You may have heard of the "cycle of violence," in which a parent abuses a child who eventually grows up to become a parent that abuses his or her child. Somewhat less well known is the "cycle of bad-naming," but this here is a textbook case.

Louisiana resident Jack Daniels Leathers was born 31 years ago to parents with a somewhat cavalier attitude toward naming their kids.

"My parents decided they wanted to name their son something to make their parents mad," Jack Daniels explained to local Louisiana paper Houma Today. "And, at the time, my dad was drinking Jack, which he enjoyed. My mom said, 'Why not?'"
