A play on my IRL name

Parents were alcoholic hippy native americans.

It's my first initial and last name. I use it for everything. I'm not very imaginative or fun.

MBK was my old AOL name.  Well, the actual SN was "MyBigKulot".  Kulot is penis in Serbian (I think).

Mr. Murder is technically an alt.

I used to name all of my fantasy sports teams after Dean Koontz books. Mr. Murder stuck there, and then eventually here as well.

Adjective Bird Whiskey: Parents were alcoholic hippy native americans.


but was wild turkey taken? wild turkey 101?

Its a reference to a werewolf tribe from white wolf's old world of darkness line. They were the Egyptian death obsessed werewolves who loved to rip vampires to shreds, and disliked the politicking of the "more important" tribes.

Nickname for our dog, Dallas.

It sort of naturally flowed from my bright and shiny personality.
 
2012-12-20 11:58:52 PM  
I got mine from the Jerky Boys movie.
 
2012-12-20 11:58:59 PM  
Now I am wonder what it would be like if I used a different Dean Koontz book instead.

Dragons Tears - That might have worked.
Intensity - Meh

Tick Tock - Okay, this one would have been awesome.

sarahstotle didn't occur to me until much later.

I work for government. A friend thought it would be funny if I wrote blog posts when I had been drinking, expressing all my pent up anger. I ported that resulting name over to Fark.

TA-DA!
 
2012-12-20 11:59:35 PM  
It was given to me by Tom Cruise.
 
2012-12-20 11:59:58 PM  
it involves a blood ritual and a watery tart

Mine started off when I was headed out to the middle east and I needed a title for my blog - so it was "A Texan in Shaikh Muhhamad's Court"  or Middle East Texan.  A lot of folks think its "I'm a Texan" which lead to lots of knee jerk reactions in the GWB days.  It was kind of trollerific fun, considering I voted for Obama.
 
2012-12-21 12:00:18 AM  
I didn't want anyone to know I'm a girl.

hahahahahahaha, I had no idea how this place works.
 
2012-12-21 12:00:22 AM  
It's the song I was listening to.
 
2012-12-21 12:00:23 AM  
I started on Fark with nycfarkette and then I move to Atlanta and became atlfarkette. There will be at least one of you that will realize I'm not ALTfarkette but rather ATLfarkette.
 
2012-12-21 12:00:25 AM  
I farked up the spelling of Dan Ackroyd's character who sells the terribly unsafe toys. It was going to be that or Leonard Pinth-Garnell. I tried getting the Modmins to change it to Habitual Line Stepper but they ignored me.

You dated her too?

sarahkierkegaard would have worked too.
 
2012-12-21 12:02:04 AM  
oooh. Green.


This should be fun.
 
2012-12-21 12:02:08 AM  
Green?!  Uh, I mean, it's my alias...from when I was a SPY...on the MOON!

That is more exciting.  But really...yeah.  My dog.
 
2012-12-21 12:02:21 AM  
I've had several different user names for this account:

SquirrelsOfDoom (I have no idea why)

MyNameIsNotMervGriffin (after the song)

You Can't Fix Stupid (after the Ron White sketch)

Sensei Can You See doesn't have any special significance; I'm a martial artist and I like bad puns. It's just about that deep.

I was home from class tooling around on the Internet and just picked the first stupid boring thing off the top of my head because eh, I was only going to be around for five minutes.
 
2012-12-21 12:02:28 AM  
I killed my father for it.  As is the custom of my people.  As he killed his father before him.
 
2012-12-21 12:03:38 AM  
I was chatting on Facebook.
 
2012-12-21 12:03:40 AM  
I wanted to be just "Bad Apple" but it was taken at the time. Never saw that bastard ever.
 
2012-12-21 12:04:05 AM  
I live in Hawaii, and my boyfriend always used to comment that I get wet like a tsunami.
 
2012-12-21 12:04:08 AM  
My username is a play on the Latin legal term "Lex Talionis" meaning "Law of Retaliation" or "Law of Revenge".

Thus, my username means "King of Retaliation".

it's what my real life friends call me. And yes... alcohol was involved for many steps of the evolution of the name.

Started out between periods in the "smoking section" at a Devils playoff game in 2001 and a random dude said about me "Hey...It's that crazy half naked man"... and over the course of that series and the rest of the playoffs, everytime he saw me he changed it a bit until it became "hng".

HE ended up naming his hockey team after me... and had me design a jersey that inlcuded my likeness, and then when he got married, the invite and my table assignment was "hng".

I am embarrassed how long it took me to realize it was ATL. :(
 
2012-12-21 12:04:32 AM  
I wrote a bunch of words on a poster board and jizzed on it.  Biggest gloops of mess won.

middleoftheday: I was home from class tooling around on the Internet and just picked the first stupid boring thing off the top of my head because eh, I was only going to be around for five minutes.


I was going to post one comment in one video game related thread one time.  And I like basketball.

I'm really Adjective Bird Whiskey's less attractive conjoined twin.
 
2012-12-21 12:05:12 AM  
When I was 12 I was playing legos with my cousin, who built this weird ship and start calling it "Space Jockey 1999".  When I got to college and had to find a user id of my very own, I wanted to hearken back to that moment and call myself spacejockey, but there were multiple space jockeys out there, and I wanted my own name.  So I combined it with my major (Aerospace Engineering) and voila, aerojockey.  Pretty sure I'm the only one.
 
2012-12-21 12:05:15 AM  
I earned it in prison.

Ty Webb's roommate from college in Caddyshack. Kicked out of school for night putting...putting at night, with the 16 year old daughter of the dean.

And a 1 for no particular reason.
 
2012-12-21 12:05:53 AM  
It's my slave name.  When the revolution comes, you will all call me "Alan"
 
2012-12-21 12:05:55 AM  
My friend was in jail for awhile and wrote me a letter a week, each one was addressed to a different Joe.
Joe Hamsterpants
Joey Meatloaf
Joe McFifenpooper

just to name a few.

He also called me a dirty jew a lot.

so I came up with McFifenstein.
 
2012-12-21 12:06:08 AM  
It's my gang name.

everyone dated a version of her and if you didn't....well...go ahead and look in the mirror

Tormenting geeks is kind of my hobby.
