Unfortunate Terms

Oh no. Oh no, no no nono no. Hold on a second there, Professor, I can see where this is going:

I should also note that I prefer the term "mullarchy" for the Iranian political scene, since it's shorter, and has the advantage of rhyming, more or less, with "malarkey."

Anyone notice the similarity between "malarkey" and my last name, "Markley"? I know what you're thinking — sure, they're similar, but no one would screw that up and refer to me as Kyle Malarkey before an audience of 350 people. Especially not my 4th level manager who was actively concentrating on getting everyone's name right.

Nope. Couldn't. Ever. Happen.
