Kim & Kanye

North West Is Non-Directional

Kim Kardashian
and Kanye West were not inspired by a compass when they named their kid North ... fact is, the name's more inspirational than directional.

Sources close to K & K tell TMZ  ... they chose the name North because they see it as a metaphor for "up", telling friends, "What's North of North? Nothing."  Translation ... nothing better.

We're told the duo believes baby North is their highest point together as a couple ... the pinnacle of the relationship ... and they consider her their "North Star."

Kinda sweet. Almost makes ya feel bad for mocking it, right?

Almost.

No, not sweet at all. It just sounds even more ridiculous now! The poor baby may have an IQ that doesn't surpass double digits. North is north, but it isn't up for those of us that aren't complete idiots. Why not just name her Space or Ozone if they wanted something to represent up?

North may be their high point, but North West is an entirely different direction.

Technically they are not married so isn't her last name Kardashian or even Humphries?

I've said it before - the name North isn't all that bad. The sentimental meaning for them is fine, too, I guess. BUT when you pair it with the last name West, it's just unfortunate and comical. Knowing the special meaning it holds for them doesn't make the name any better. North West is just a really, really dumb name. Sorry. *shrug*

Meanwhile they just made their own punchline - as soon as their relationship his the rocks, it'll be all about how everything is "going South" for them... lmfao... Idiots.. hahahaha

KMZ's next pics will be Kim breastfeeding in public. Kourtney just started it over the weekend and Kim is soon to follow.
Sorry if I made you nauseous.

Well they both have fans who are stupid enough to think they both have some kind of talent. So I guess this dumb azz explanation is good for them. For the rest of the Free World, the poor kid still has our sympathy!!
