We better get going--where is that squid Petey?

 

Speaking of Pete, here's an alternate for him: "Pepe le Peu "

 

OK, back that one up, why this one?

Pete used to think it was great sport to fart near the rest of us. I don't know that he ever actively tried to get others to smell it, like by letting an SBD and then saying, "Anybody smell weed?" Still, he was prolific and sometimes in enclosed spaces.

 

Pepe is a Looney Tunes skunk character:

*SIGH*

 

You Yanks just don't get it do you?

 

A nickname is something that is EARNED. You just cannot go about thinking them up, it happens as a result of something mor an obsevation that all agree on (good or bad).

 

Some people will NEVER have a nickname. I am one of them becuase I have a unique surname. My son Kit will never have one becuase of his unique first and second name.

 

:rolleyes:

 

Andy 'Idiot' Ibbott

 

I agree with Andy 100% :)

T-SHIRT explanation:

 

Alright, because I agree with the UK guys, on nicknames are supposed to be something

about you.

 

Back before we had uniforms, we (the staff) would wear Cornering shirts, this could be

t-shirts, long-sleeve or tank tops.

 

My first year with the school, I got what most people would call a severe farmers tan.

 

And I made the mistake of wearing a tank top to a couple of the schools where some of

the UK boys were at, showcasing said farmer's tan. Hence T-SHIRT, as I looked like I was

wearing a white T-shirt permanently.

 

Never really took on with the US staff, and then I got T-Bone. But most of the UK guys, still

call me T-SHIRT, even a few who weren't around for the original naming picked it up.

Eric I will start it off for you.

EA Sports - it's in the game!

or

Pilot - why? because he is one dummies.

 

For me unfortunately I got my nickname (T-bone) because of an incident, that I would rather not talk about... I told you I didn't want to talk about it!

 

Another nickname that I have which was actually given me by our cousins across that sea - T-Shirt, some of the blokes in the UK still call me that.

Not trying to give myself a nick name just in full disclosure you understand.

 

Just for the record, Eric has 2 bars and is pending his 3rd. He has also earned a Silver star.

 

As far as a nickname, it will happen.

You Boys,

The rules:

As Andy rightly pointed out (although he does have several nicknames but i fear they may be censored on this forum) You don't get to pick your name.

It has to come from someone else, preferably because of something you have or have not done, a certain characteristic, the more subtle the better.

I will give you a recent example to get you started.

One of our most recent nicknames for a coach is NEMO, whilst chatting with our mechanic 'GLOOM' a new coach Lee (NEMO) passed comment to GLOOM who replied in the vernacular with **** off CODHEAD. Now this will men nothing to you guys and didn't mean much to us but but CODHEAD is a local insult between people from GLOOM'S area and LEE'S, cod fishing is very big in that part of the world. Now we wrestled with codhead as a nickname but could not in all professionalism introduce anyone as codhead, so the floor was opened to expand on this. BUTCH came up with the inspired reference to a naive fish always getting in harms way and hence NEMO.

There is no way LEE would have picked NEMO which is also why its a perfect nickname.

You can not give an attractive woman BAYWATCH as it shows no effort, originality, patience, deference to the honour of nicknames, due consideration and quite frankly is just lazy.

 

So step up boys and raise the bar.

 

Trevor's T-SHIRT is a good start get him to explain it and aim high.

 

Best

 

Jet

 

Right on Jet!

 

Cobie and the rest of the gang, this should be the "hat" or policy if you will, on nicknaming. Anything done outside this I personally will not accept.

 

Cheers,

Classic thread!

 

I know you guys are aware of Mikey's fondness of a nanna nap. Having seen it for myself in Europe I suggest maybe there's a nickname in it. Dude falls asleep on trains, on buses, planes, cars........transport is his sedative.

 

Nanna? or maybe just Nan for short?

 

I like that Adam, but I we don't know what a nanna nap is here in the States. But your right, he falls asleep everywhere!

CatNap would be good, maybe Narco, or zzzzzzz's...... Winkle (for Rip Van Winkle)works for me also, though whether you've got the balls for that one, is another question..? :lol:

For that matter, we could call him "Rip," which also carries the suggestion that he's fast.

Winkle suggests a slightly different meaning in the UK, often used to describe a small boys tackle, or the passing of water....! Not so cute now us it..?

 

I have to say Rip's got some mileage.

Think that's just a play on her name, she hasn't killed to many students. Too long though I think. So, coming out of retirement, mom? That's it, cal her "Mom"! How many other Moms do we have as coaches, hm?

 

OK--Barbie works for Burnett for sure, cracks me up just thinking about it.

 

Catnap, kind a like that one.

Misti,

 

If you want one from the the UK, i would offer Screamer or maybe panic. As my overriding memory of your visit to spain is you making the foolish decision to come back with the boys in our hire van. And duly screaming that we were going to kill you all the way back to the hotel. There were only as i recall two points where we nearly died.

Winkle, absolutely gets my vote.

 

Reasoning:

He would not pick it

It was suggested by someone else, with a very valid reason behind it. We even got photos of winkle asleep in South Africa

It is not immediately obvious as to why

Its funny

And with that goatee i could imagine him in a fairy tale

 

 

Winkle, its a done deal for me

I thought I had buried that terrifying memory but there you went and brought it all back again! There were WAY more than two points where we nearly died and yes I did scream the entire way back. The scariest part was when the whole lot of you were flinging your bodies to the left or the right when going around corners, trying to flip the darn thing. We had all four wheels off the ground on more than one occasion. I vowed to never let you wankers drive me again :) "Don't be gentle, it's a rental!"

 

I always wanted a nick name, but "Death Wagon?" Thanks Stuman. "Panic?" Thanks Jet.
