Kelly & Michael: Right Handed Names

There’s a recent study that says that because people’s right hands are dominant and associate that with good as opposed to the left hand, which is associated with bad or weakness, more people are naming their babies with letters on the right side of their keyboard. As a leftie, I find that ridiculous. There have been leftie presidents, and Jerry Seinfeld as well as Kelly Ripa’s son are lefties.  Some names people are choosing are Noah, Liam, Emily, and Olivia. This wasn’t a problem before computers, and maybe people are doing it subconsciously now. All of Kelly’s kids’ names are on the right side.

There’s a new map that shows where people use the word “Um” versus “Uh” in America. Kelly thought that the map seemed to line up politically. The “Ums” were mostly on the East Coast, which was really interesting.  I think I say “Um” if I really think about it. Michael Strahan changes when he’s in different places. “I’m multi-lingual,” he said. Mark Consuelos says, “Eh, eh, eh, eh,” which is like “yeah, yeah, yeah.” A lot of people also say “like.” Kelly asks Lola if she can get through a sentence without saying like, and she says, “Like can you?”
