Humor: Andhraiites names ...

Again, another candidate for my humor blog, but being presented here since it has to do something with my "background" :)

Andhraiites (terminology used to refer to folks from Andhra Pradesh, my family's place of origin) names are always known to sound like college degrees (a.b.c.d, e.f.g.h, and so on) ...

A joke on this nomenclature goes along the following lines:

On a flight, James Bond finds himself seated next to a telugu software engineer...
Telugu Guy "Hello, May I know your name please?"
James Bond "I am Bond...James Bond."
James Bond "And you?"
Telugu Guy "I am Sai...
Venkata Sai...
Siva Venkata Sai ...
Laxminarayana Siva Venkata Sai...
Srinivasula Laxminarayana Siva Venkata Sai...
Rajasekhara Srinivasula Laxminarayana Siva Venkata Sai...
Sitaramanjaneyula Rajasekhara Srinivasula Laxminarayana Siva Venkata Sai...
Bulusupalli Sitaramanjaneyula Rajasekhara Srinivasula Laxminarayana Siva Venkata Sai..."

Since then when anyone asks Bond his name he simply says "James Bond".
