Jimmy Kimmel Talks To Four People Whose Names Perfectly Match Their Jobs

"Like if you’re a lawyer, your name is Sue.”

What's in a name? Turns out it can say a lot about you, especially at work. Jimmy Kimmel talked to four perfectly named people live on his show Wednesday night. He scoured the country and the internet in search of people whose occupations match their names in an amusingly befitting way.

Moreover, these aren't your run-of-the-mill occupations: Kimmel talked to a dentist, a contractor, a fireman, and even a gynecologist. — and really makes the case that this could become one of his ongoing segments, just like the Father's Day Challenge or his installments of Mean Tweets.

Kimmel introduces us to these four interesting people that fill the bill by saying, "Every once in a while, you come across a person whose name fits his or her occupation, like if you're a lawyer, your name is Sue." He found people from all over the United States, including a volunteer firefighter whose name is Les McBurney, from Sun Prairie, Wis. But in true Jimmy Kimmel style, he cracks a few jokes of his own, offering a couple of other occupations that could also fit their names — such as a urologist for McBurney.
