Edward Lizardhands, You Are You The Father and Kim KarDASHian were just some of the wacky names that followers of ESPN's official Twitter account thought of when asked, "If you owned a Kentucky Derby horse, what would you name it?"

We're one day away from the race dubbed "The Greatest Two Minutes In Sports" and the 2012 Kentucky Derby may have some names that fit with those. Daddy Long Legs, Bodemeister and Union Rags might give some of ESPN's followers a run for their money.

So get prepared for some mint juleps, fancy hats, an infield party and, like every horse race, some hilarious horse names.

  • You're My Boy Blue (2005)

    It's unclear whether or not this horse get's his name from 2003's comedy <em>Old School</em> starring Will Ferrell, but there's definitely a good chance. Who wouldn't enjoy screaming "You're my boy, Blue!" from the crowd?

  • That's Whatshesaid (2009)

    <em>"You think you could go all day long?" <br> "... That's what she said!"</em> <br> The title of this video explains it all. If <em>The Office</em>'s Michael Scott owned a horse, you could bet that this one would belong to him.

  • Panty Raid (2007)

    Looks like there's a panty raid at Churchill Downs. If this horse's name is Panty Raid, his stable most definitely resides at a frat house.

  • Yakamickahickadola (1982)

    Say this horse's name five times fast. Announcer Tom Durkin can't even pronounce it once.

  • The Wife Doesn't Know vs. My Wife Knows Everything (2010)

    It's unknown if this dialogue is of a horse announcer or just Tiger Woods' conscience.

  • Stud Muffin (2008)

    Stud Muffin lives up to his name with 54 career starts within the last six years, including four in 2012.

    Of 12 career starts, Hoof Harted only recorded two first finishes, meaning the phrase 'Hoof Hearted in the Winner's Circle' could only be used twice. What a shame.

  • Imawildandcrazyguy (2007)

    No word if <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jH9sAENQNV8" target="_hplink">Steve Martin and Dan Aykroyd took this horse in</a>, but if they did, hopefully they bought him a funny hat.
