Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen has ordered an investigation into the death of a prominent environmentalist during a confrontation with military police.  The environmentalist, Chut Wutty, was killed Thursday as he accompanied two journalists investigating illegal logging in a protected forest.  The police said an officer shot Mr. Chut Wutty and then killed himself.  The prime minister’s order, issued Monday, followed calls by rights groups for an investigation.

Personally, I don’t care much about illegal logging in Cambodia.  If it happens closer to home then I might shake my head and go “tsk tsk” but really environmentalism is just not my thing.

BUT, this screams for attention.  This guy’s name was CHUT WUTTY!  What an amazing name!  As soon as I saw it I had to say it out loud.  You should try it too.  It’s COOL and FUN!

Chut Wutty Chut Wutty Chut Wutty Chut Wutty.

Go ahead.  You know you want to.

There are so few fun names in the news.  “Hillary Clinton?”  BLAAAAAAAAA.  Barack Obama was cool for a while but it got old.

For this guy to get into the news someone had to kill him.  Had you heard of Chut Wutty (chutwuttychutwuttychutwutty) before now? I know!  Me neither!

One final note, whether you pronounce his name with the short “u” (as in Butt Face) or with the long “u” sound (as in Booty Call), it makes no difference.  It still waaaay cool. (Personally I prefer the short vowel *shrug*)

It’s stuck in my head now and I’ll be chanting it the rest of the day.
