Great Britain - You don’t have to be Freud to know that the razzing you get on a playground haunts you the rest of your life, especially if your surname is “Cockshott.” A study out of Britain found that people with last names hilariously funny to fifth graders are disappearing. The number of people named “Cock” shrank to 785 last year, down from 3,211 in 1981. “Balls” fell from 2,904 to 1,299 in the same period, while “Dafts” dropped off 51 percent, and “Cockshotts” 34 percent, according to Reuters report.
