Best Name for Female Chinese Politician-Sham Ho, no Kidding

The name of this Chinese politician sums up what many think of people like her.

Helen ‘Sham Ho’

How great is that?

Helen Ho or even Helen Sham would have been funny enough, but this emigrant to Australia is called both. I would have gotten fewer detentions in school if my classmates had names like this. ‘Hey little Ho, do you call your momma big Ho or big Sham?’
