Walt, Walt and Harry
I know an Orthodox priest from Texas to whom a certain young man kept bringing names to be commemorated at Proskomede (the preparatory service before the Divine Liturgy). Those were always the same three names: Walt, Walt and Harry. Once, the priest asked him who those three were.
"It's simple. First Walt is Walt Disney, because he brought so much happiness to so many people. The other one is the famous cartoonist, Walt Kelly, for the same reason."
"Harry Truman, so God would forgive him for throwing the a-bomb on Hiroshima and Nagasaki."
