      I want Billy to keep running with it - I'm laughing my ass off.

      Meanwhile, I'm going to look for the significance of the names in PORKY'S.

        I thought the name came from a favorite movie and a co-worker that got fired.



        but, most names aren't significant in modern literature. It's too easy to spot and kinda overly clever when it is there.

          My bad guys in my first film were Howard, Nash, Ron, and Russell.

          Yeah, I was kinda pissed ABM beat out FOTR for best picture.

            Most meaningful name I've ever put in a script was an exterminator named Benji.

                It also unscrambles to...

                "Ned Ryerson" from GroundHog Day.

                Tyler is anti-Ned.

                And then after reaserching Ned Ryerson this is what I also found out.

                At the Chilmark cemetery on Martha's Vineyard where John Belushi is buried a gravestone in the name of Ned Ryerson exists. Murray was on SNL with Belushi. Ramis directed a lot of movies with Ackroyd, Murray etc. The name of the character could have come form this gravestone. Is this really where Belushi is buried rather than the fake stone in the front of the cemetery?

                So Tyler Durden is really a symbolic representation of John Belushi. Belushi was about excess as was Tyler Durden.

                John Belushi = Tyler Durden

                There you go.
