Just signed a guy named James James. Poor kid.
back in 2005 my future (and now current) wife and i were backpacking through australia and in brisbane we went to a bar during happy hour and struck up a conversation with a group of co-workers, one of which was a guy who had a double name. (the name escapes me now.) anyways, we were all getting pretty wasted and at some point, double name (who we'll call 'james james' for ease of reference) went to buy a round. after some time the bartender comes over and says she has his id. he says no, he's got it. she says, 'are you sure? the name is james james.' and he says, yeah, i'm sure. its in my wallet. bartender walks away and he looks at us, completely serious, with a bit of shock and says, 'holy ****, can you believe that there's another james james and he's at the bar right now?' then he starts looking around, like wondering who it could be. needless to say, my wife and i and james james' co-workers start cracking up and one of his friends did him of the favor of retrieving the id from the bartender.
