lemonjello, orangejello, shithead

I had run into the stories about people named Lemonjello, Orangejello, and Shithead. I was dubious, until talking with a friend who had lived in the south for a couple of years. After that I thought it was possible.

I was discussing it with a lady who is in one of my writing groups. HAH -- it's an urban legend, was her reply. Evidently that's a common belief. And it may very well partially be an urban legend...

Today I met a gentleman named Lemonjello. It's pronounced le-mon-jah-LOW, and has nothing to do with Jell-O, lemon or otherwise. He's very particular about that.

Has anyone else run into these names?
