everyone has a sense of humor

I just read the sample cover page entry in the Turabian style book, and I was surprised to see that Turabian entered the sample student as Robert Loblaw.  Anyone who has ever seen Arrested Development knows that this name shortens to “Bob Loblaw” (say it out loud and you’ll know why it’s funny).  This just goes to show that even anal retentive stylisticians have a sense of humor–which they must bury beneath the formal name “Robert” in order to avoid being that funny.

    Michael: Sentences. Why would I say…
    Lindsay: Sandwiches?
    Michael: That time I was going to say sandwiches.
