My uncle Harry had a similar problem when it occurred to him that--for
reasons of simplicity and because of a failing memory--he might christen
two recently-purchased kittens with identical names. Whenever he called
one of them there would be a considerable delay (each of them assuming
he was calling the other).
Of course cats never come when you call them anyway (which is a clue
the story may be apocryphal).
