My dad recently sent me the following story. Keep in mind that this man is an eminent historian, so I initially thought he was sending me some fascinating historical fact that he had come across during his research:

"Do you remember William Spong, US Senator from Virginia 1967-1973? (Probably not.) When he went to Washington he was afraid his name would be pronounced Sponge, so he let it be known that he and Senator Hiram Fong of Hawaii and Senator Russell Long of Louisiana would introduce a bill calling for the mass ringing of church bells to welcome the arrival in Hong Kong of the US Table Tennis team after a tour of China. His bill never passed (probably because it was never actually introduced), depriving the country of the Long-Spong-Fong Hong Kong Ping Pong Ding Dong Bell Bill."
