Richard “Fighting Dick” Anderson Was Just Too Easy

The Hairpin recently posted a marvelous list of actual names of actual Civil War Generals – and there are some doozies! Louis Trezevant Wigfall, anyone?

And, as is to be expected, someone pointed out that some of them sounded like names of porno actors – which I of course took as my cue to modify the names into their appropriate and obvious porn analogs. And I was, of course, hilarious! Louis Trezevant Merkinfall, anyone? Here are a few of the gems I came up with…

Original                                                     Porn
William “Extra Billy” Smith                    William “Extra Willy” Smith
Bushrod Rust Johnson                            Bushrod “Rusty Trombone” Johnson
Amiel Weeks Whipple                             Amiel Tweaks Nipple
Benjamin “Spoons” Butler                      Benjamin “Poons” Butler
Young Marshall Moody                           Young Marshall Nudie

And the pièce de résistance:

Gideon Johnson Pillow                          Gideon “Johnson Pillow” Johnson Pillow

Thank you! I’ll be here all week!
