I used to know a girl called Theresa Green.
Not until many, many years later did I realise the comedy in that.

I think it's how we brits pronounce it. Turnham would be said "turnhEm" where as an american would say "turnhAm" so the comedy isn't there.

Ok, like "Turning Green Chinese"?

We have a Chinese take out nearby. My son did not like the smell. Ever since we called it "Stinky-Chinese". They have the best noodles. ( I know, random)

not really, "em" is slang for them, so it would be "turning them green chinese"
