What's the joke? Just that it rhymes slash is spelled the same as the surname? And I always thought that Zowie was the Duncan one which directs films, so having them in my head as a man I don't think I've ever mentally linked it to Zoe. Until this new boo-ee evidence I've pronounced Zowie and Bowie to rhyme wi someone saying "wow-ee!"

Not so much a joke I suppose as something amusing. Zoe Bowie rhymes. Zowie looks like Bowie. It was only a placeholder until he chose his own name apparently, and he chose Duncan for some reason

So it's actually two jokes - the fact that it's a stupid rhyme and the fact that it wasn't even given to a girl.

I always thought the "joke" was that the two names were spelt similarly but pronounced differently, i.e. to rhyme with Cow-y Showy.

Didn't Dave have some sort of agreement with Marc Bolan, who named his own son Rolan?

Josh Gad named his son for his favourite guitar tuning.

Busted! He has two daughters.

They both call him by Davy Graham's hybrid tuning which marries middle-Eastern and Celtic musical scales, a name of that kind.

I wasn’t talking about his daughters, who quite frankly are shit, but about his son.

Ha ha! Is that true? That's like Dave Clifton choosing 'Dave Clifton' as his stage name.

Within the last few years I've heard someone on TV pronounce both names differently, but I can't remember which way round.

To my mind it's both and neither, and it's mainly a testament to just how old the planet is. In one way I know full well that things move slowly, because things like evolution and tectonic drift are things which happen to slowly for me to see with my own eyes and yet I know they've caused humans to evolve and continents to shift, but even knowing that my intuition is that all of the dinosaur stuff happened a long time ago from me (because they were dead well before I was born), but close in time to each other (because they're all just lumped together under "dinosaur stuff").

This is stolen from a recent Adam Buxton podcast, but the word for someone who runs a restaurant is restaurateur, not restauranteur.

There are more CaB search results for restaurateur than restauranteur. I suggest you seriously consider moving your post to the Obvious Things thread.

I'm not suggesting anything will happen to you if you don't.

Pablo Escobar had a zoo on his estate in Colombia which included 4 imported hippos. After his death the estate was abandoned and most of the zoo animals either died or were removed, but the hippos stayed there and bred, eventually breaking out of the zoo and spreading across the area. There's now nearly 100 hippos, all descendants of the original 4, and they breed twice as fast in Colombia as they do in their native Africa because it's much wetter. Escobar's zoo was very popular so public sympathy made the government make it illegal to cull them despite the danger they pose (thousands of people are killed by them every year in Africa), so now there's a sterilisation program but it's expensive, slow and difficult to maintain, so there's probably going to be thousands of them across Columbia in a few decades.

That’s a shallow starting gene pool. They’ll probably have formed a corrupt, decadent monarchy and sport malformed lower jaws within a couple of hundred years.
