Heard: Ed and Ted's Excellent Nickname

I overheard this conversation between two interns in a Senate elevator this morning. Both interns had pretty severe "valley girl" accents.

Girl intern: Ok so we need to go to Ted Kennedy's office next.

Boy intern: I thought his name was Edward.

Girl intern: Well yeah, but Ted is like a nickname for Edward. You know, like Bill is a nickname for William.

Boy intern: But Ted isn't even close to Edward!
