Imagine getting a phone call late in the day from a customer, and the customer sounds exactly....and I mean EXACTLY....like Carl Spackler from Caddyshack (Bill Murray's character). He's trying to explain an issue he's having with a part, and all I can hear is, "Cinderella story. Outta nowhere. A former greenskeeper, now, about to become the Masters champion. It looks like a miracle... It's in the hole! It's in the hole! It's in the hole!" Or, "I don't think the hard stuff's going to come down for a while."
It's probably going to be pretty hard to keep a straight face, right?
Now imagine....his name is......Dick Johnson.
My inner Beavis & Butthead was in full overdrive. Here I am discussing a part worth thousands of dollars, and all I can think is, "yeah, umm, yeah, hehe, Dick Johnson, Dick Johnson, Dick Dick Dick Dick Dick JOHNSON!" I was a fifty cent cab ride away from doing Cornholio.
This world won't be anywhere near as fun a place when people stop using Dick as a nickname for Richard (in fact, I've known couples who considered using Richard as a baby name until it occurred to one of them that the nickname would be Dick and scrapped it for this reason, so Richard might become extinct).
