Ima Hogg

Today's Wikipedia featured article on the main page is the American philanthropist, Ima Hogg, which sure sounds like an April Fool's Day joke, but apparently she's real.

If she was a real person, it shows that people can overcome adversity -- even a terrible name given by one's parents. Other parents have committed similar crimes against Nature: the Wikipedia article says, "Similar unfortunate baby names according to US census records include Ima Pigg, Ima Muskrat, Ima Nut, Ima Hooker, Ima Weiner, Ima Reck, Ima Pain and Ima Butt".
