Billionaire Blackmail - 4 real?

Can't help but link to this story I read in the Evening Standard on the way home. A very typical London story of a billionaire, his London based alleged mistress and a cover-up. The unique part of this though is the names, sometimes things are too perfect, the mistress is called Ms. Fuk Wu.

 You couldn't make it up!

It might not be pronounced the way it appears in English though. Remember they changed the pronounciation of the planet Uranus from the traditional "Your Anus" into "You're A Nuss" to give it a better image when NASA sent the space probe there. And a while back, in Japan, Prime Minister Takeashita had his name pronounced just as it is spelled in English when it was first announced on the telly, but the pronounciation was quickly cleaned up into something else. But there was probably a lot of giggles around the court house and newsroom that day dealing with this woman's name. Funny name in an odd situation for it.

I saw a white van in Chinatown yesterday with the legend: "Soon Fatt - Food Distributors" painted on the side. Honest!
