Naming the Girl

Jason Dias sent this one to us with the message, “This is a very, very old one I found in a joke book when I was 12 (I’ll just let you speculate on how long ago that was). Oddly, it seems to be missing from the archives.”

Jane and John couldn’t decided on a name for their newborn baby girl. They’d narrowed it down: John liked Cohen, and Jane liked Carmen, but they couldn’t break the dealock. So, they decided they’d just give the little girl both names, and people could call her whichever t hey liked best. John called her Cohen and Jane called her Carmen.

By the time she was 18, the poor girl didn’t know if she was Carmen or Cohen.
