Let's launch this baby in a day or so.

Two characters are being introduced to each other for the first time. However the first introductee has a really whacky name; for example, he is a businessman called "Mr. Moneygrabs". The other character feels compelled to laugh, thinking that it is a joke. However, it is not. It is, as it is pointed out, a long running and respectable family name.

Compare Mistaken for an Imposter.

Examples:
  • I vaguely recall a sketch where two people both have names like this, and both think the other is making fun of THEIR name. Any ideas?
