I never knew a class about algorithms could be so funny...

I am taking an algorithms course this semester. As our professor pointed out this morning the names the book used must be some sort of inside joke. Due to the greatness of Google I was quickly able to find a great list. Even if you don't have the book this list is pretty funny. All of these names are used in the examples/excersises in the book. I think textbooks written by authors with a sense of humor are better. A little humor here or there adds a more relaxed feeling to the subject.
