120. I knew of a Mercedes Benz in high school
Edited on Mon Dec-05-05 02:00 PM by WildEyedLiberal
There are these two siblings in my town: the boy, Thunder, and his sister, Pepsi Nicola.

There's another family that named all their kids after guns AND Indian tribes (first and middle names). There's Winchester Dakota, Baretta Lakota, and Remington Cheyanne. Winchester is the only boy.
