I've seen some rather boring screen names on this board
(yes...mine included) and I've noticed names that really stood out:

Stupendous man

Philosophocles

and my personal favorite

Wartime Consingliore (did I spell that right?)



What screen names do you guys love?

SPOOFE

No doubt about it... my screen name is the coolest. Hands down.

I find most altenate versions of existing words to be rather clever. Czarcasm, for instance, is a good one.

I've always liked Sue Duhnym. A recent favorite is PurpleHeadedYogurtSlinger.

There's a guy who just started posting over in GQ, by the name of Don't poke the bear, Dad! That's pretty funny!

SPOOFE is a boob. Mine is better.

Dijon Warlock, actually, makes me giggle everytime I see it and say it.

Don't Poke the Bear, Dad! is one I haven't seen yet, but it ranks up there in the top 1%, I must say....

Drat. I meant to mention some of my favourite names:

Mods:

Czarcasm
Coldfire

Members:

ThisYearsGirl
SuaSponte
CrankyAsAnOldMan
Arden Ranger
jarbabyj (despite an odd liking for black gooey substances)
Sexy Writer (who seems to have vanished)

I just find these aliases evocative...

Well, no, I've never had vegemite, but it's such a cute word, and to think of it being happy and little is darling.

anything little is automatically cute.

Another vote for Don't poke the bear, Dad! It actually made me laugh out loud when I saw it for the first time.

Czarcasm is a pretty clever screen name. And I'm not just saying that because I've met the guy.

I like Fenris. For some reason, I think of wolves when I see that name...must have seen some reference somewhere linking the two.

Cartooniverse, Spiritus Mundi, Sofa King, and TubaDiva are all really cool names, in my book.

I vote for Qadgop the Mercotan

It has an august majesty seldom seen in member handles. BTW if you're reading this, Qadgop, can you tell us what it means? For my part it stirs vague memories of old science fiction movies and freshman chemistry.

In the American edition of the first book of the Chronicles of Narnia, there was a wolf named Fenris Ulf. That's probably where you got that connection.

As for my pick, well...I've always thought Scylla was a pretty cool name, and wondered why I haven't seen a Charybdis.

I think mine's pretty cool, but that's just my opinion.

Fenris is a character in Norse mythology. The son of Loki,
Fenris is a massive wolf. Currently chained in cave, with a sword in his mouth, he is destined to escape at Ragnarok(Twilight Of The Gods).

That said:
Chronos (after Greek mythology or the DC super villain?)
TubaDiva
PolyCarp
And because of the special place in my heart reserved for insane, prankster, vampires
Malkavia

Aha! I read the Narnia books a lot when I was younger. Betcha C.S. Lewis got the name for the wolf from the Norse mythology. And I've read enough books on mythology to have probably bumped into the name somewhere, after which it lodged in my subconscious for some vague reason.

Thanks for filling me in.

Wow, Dijon Warlock. Thanks. With only thirty-something posts, it's quite an honor.

I've never seen imthecowgodmoo, but that just made me laugh out loud.

now i've gtg.. i'm learning dvorak on the other computer, which is defragging, and don't want to mess myself up.

Thanks! It's the title character from Sybly Whyte's classic novel! Here's a quote!

Qadgop the Mercotan slithered flatly around the after-bulge of the
tranship. One claw dug into the meters-thick armor of pure neutronium,
then another. Its terrible xmex-like snout locked on. Its zymolosely
polydactyl tongue crunched out, crashed down, rasped across. Slurp!
Slurp! At each abrasive stroke the groove in the tranship's plating
deepened and Qadgop leered more fiercely. Fools! Did they think that
the airlessness of absolute space, the heatlessness of absolute zero,
the yieldlessness of absolute neutronium could stop QADGOP THE
MERCOTAN? And the stowaway, that human wench Cynthia, cowering in
helpless terror just beyond this thin and fragile wall....

Hey SPOOFE, I remember the time when you were SPOOFE Bo Diddley. Why the name change?

Smeghead
07-09-2001, 08:51 PM
I literally read that section of that book last night, Qadgop. Laughed out loud.

And, javaman, it's from E.E. "Doc" Smith's Lensman series, in which our hero, Kim Kinnison, poses as an intrepid sci-fi writer, Sylby Whyte - actually a well-established cover identity used by the Galactic Patrol - so as to be able to infiltrate all aspects of a particular planet's society. In order to maintain his cover, he actually writes a book, which, since it was written by our Grey Lensman hero, is, of course, widely hailed as Whyte's best.

Look folks, the OP isn't "Who's got the most CLEVER screen name," it's the "COOLEST." That pretty much leaves Coldfire[b] and [b]me, and Coldy is out of town.

Give me my crown. Now.

thinksnow is what ski areas say when it's suppose to be below freezing but is really in te low to mid 60's (at least in the east. Coldfire - well the coldest flame is 100's of degres higher that that. so we come around to K2 - the mountain has snow year round - and in general is very very cold and windy lets just say 0 F. I (Dave) OTOH am in my office and 70 F so if we average the 2 we get 35F which takes the crown.

Jesus H. Cristo, I've known you for a year and I never figured that out.

You know, MY first choice was The Countess Cathleen, which is a drama alluded to by William Butler Yeats in his late poem "The Circus Animals' Desertion."

But then I figured that, y'know, folks'd think I was a chick and stuff.

but then I saw PoopahChulupa* ; which just cracks me up for some reason, Cartooniverse, Jane D'oh! Rue DeDay
Sue Duhnym FireUnderpantsBoobs, Purd Werfect and tons more that I can't think of right now

Well, aside from my super-cool username, I'd have to vote for imthecowgodmoo.

And whoever finally grows the balls to claim the username Chicken of Bristol will also get my vote. There's a great username, just going to waste.

Also, the "Bo Diddly" (no "E"... yeah, I know that the musician's name was spelled differently) was added long after I took the name "SPOOFE" (in real life... about half my friends still call me that). It really meant nothing aside from space filler when I was asked for a first, middle, and last name all at the same time.

And I still think mine's the coolest screen name... Thinksnow (who's name I always translate as "thinks now") can bite my big blubbery bunghole.

Chicken of Bristol? Huh?

SPOOFE
07-10-2001, 05:54 AM
"Chicken of Bristol" is a Monty Python reference. "Brave" Sir Robin had some contact with said chicken.

Czarcasm, back when he was still known as slythe, considered using "Chicken of Bristol" as a screen name, but it was rejected in favor of the more Russian-punny-sounding title he currently wears.

missdavis102
07-10-2001, 08:48 AM
imthecowgodmoo has changed his (very kick ass) name and reappeared as someone else, no? Or did he just abandon us way back when? For some reason I can't (or choose not to) remember, I always associate him with Sofa King, which is another pretty cool screen name.

Living Dead Girl
07-10-2001, 09:52 AM
imthecowgodmoo changed his name? Say it ain't so! That was one of my all-time faves when I started reading the board - second only to the ever confusing Sue Duhnym.

Althought Don't Poke the Bear, Dad! might make it's way in there too - I fall into helpless giggles everytime I hear it. Hehehe... small things amuse small minds, eh?

Qadgop the Mercotan
07-10-2001, 10:56 AM
Smeghead, now my cover is blown! Oh well. I just always liked the idea of having a zymolosely polydactyl tongue, as does Mrs. Mercotan.

FireUnderpantsBoobs outed me in her sig. I just love those three word.

I tried to explain it to a friend recently, but she just didn't understand. Anyway, FireUnderpantsBoobs, you have the best name of anyone I've ever encountered in my entire life. You should run for President.
