A Texas House committee meeting went awry after a series of prank names like “Anita Dickenmee” and “Holden Middick” were called out for public comment.

Texas State Rep. Jeff Leach, who chairs the House Committee on Judiciary and Civil Jurisprudence, held the meeting on Wednesday for Texans who wished to comment on various pieces of legislation.

People were allowed to put their names down for the event, but pranksters had different ideas. The list consisted of several fake names, all of which contained sexual innuendos.

“Is there a Connie Lingus here? What about Anita Dickenmee? Or Holden Middick? Ok, are any three of those people here?” Leach asked the room, drawing laughs from the audience.
