A lady in Detroit walks into the welfare office, with 15 kids..
"WOW," the social worker exclaims, "are they ALL YOURS???"
"Yes, they're all mine," the tired Momma sighs, having heard that
question a thousand times before.
"Well," says the social worker, "then you must be here to sign
up for help. I'll need all their names."
"This one is my oldest--he's Leroy."
"OK, and who's next?"
"Well, this one's Leroy, also." The social worker raises an eyebrow but continues. One by one, through the oldest four, all boys, all named Leroy. Then she is introduced to the eldest girl, also named Leroy!
"All right... I'm seeing a pattern here...Are they ALL named Leroy?"
"Well, yes--it's actually really convenient. When it's time for dinner, I just yell "Leroy!" and they all come running. And if I need to stop the kid who's running into the street, I just yell"Leroy" and the kid, whoever he is, stops in his tracks. It's the smartest idea I ever had, naming them all Leroy."
The social worker thinks this over for a bit, then wrinkles her forehead and says tentatively, "But what if you want ONE kid to come, and not the whole bunch?"
"Ah, that's easy," said the mother. "Then I call them by their last names."

Here's my Leroy joke.
Three girls move in together in an apartment, and they find out all three of them have a boyfriend named Leroy. They wondered how they were going to tell them apart when they call, and one girl says "I got an idea, let's give them nicknames using our favorite soda pop. My boyfriend is as big as a mountain, and he likes to do it all the time, so I'll call him Mountain Dew"
"Great idea!" said the second girl, "My boyfriend has seven inches and it's always up, so I'll call him Seven Up."
"Okay," says the third girl, "I'll name my boyfiend Jack Daniels."
"No no no," says the other two, "you crazy! Jack Daniels ain't a soda pop, he's a liquor!"
"Yup," says the girl, "Dat's my Leroy..."
