Jokes that just don't work in stand up. Part Five

I've been thinking what I'd name my kids, and looking at celebrity baby names. Courtney Cox from Friends named her daughter Coco; she took the first two letters from her first name and the first two from her second name.
I've been thinking of doing that, but then I realised that it would be, Ben Davids: Beda (pronounced bidet, proper funny, innit?)
And I tell you someone else who shouldn't use that method to name their kid; Pete Doherty.

What normally followed was a short silence while the audience figured the joke out, followed by an even longer silence when they realised it was shit.
