    Famous Mickeys?

    So we know that Walt Disney actually wanted to name his mouse Mortimer. It was his wife, that suggested Mickey.

    Cute name. Perhaps too cute? Can you think of any other famous Mickeys?

    My brother named his son Michael. He chose Michael, because it was the name our mother almost gave him. He also chose it, because he was a huge Mickey Mantle fan. He wanted to call his son Mickey after Mickey Mantle. I always found that a little strange, because he was a Chicago White Sox fan, who hated the Yankees. He admired Mickey Mantle, though. It's funny. He never called his son Mickey. It was always and still is Michael.

    So what other famous Mickey's do you know?

    About Walt and Mickey. Yup that is true. It was on a train ride from Chicago to Los Angeles where walt drew up a picture of a mouse that was based after a mouse that he always fed while living in an apartment. Now you can see Mickey Mouses enemy, Mortimer Mouse, in Disney shorts trying to take away minnie and on Disney's House of Mouse as one of the lead bad guys.

    Homer: But Marge, this one came with a corn-cob pipe!
    Marge: [reading from the test box] "Ahoy, Maties! If the water turns blue, a baby for you! If purple ye see, no baby thar be!"
    Homer: So, which is it? Blue or purple?
    Marge: Pink.
    Homer: D'oh!
    Marge: "If ye test should fail, to a doctor set sail!"

    I'm sensing a trend... we're all coming up with the same few.

    Here's a slightly silly one. Once when I was young and on vacation we decided to go horse back riding. I was wearing a Mickey Mouse hat hat at the time, so they gave me a horse named Mickey. I rode around all day singing my own theme song "M-I-C-K-E-Y H-O-R-S-E". yeah... I was a dork

    Is that a joke? Or did Disney start selling those?
