My wit works so slowly, this username didn't occur to me until some years after anti-cat software was introduced to Fark. And yet, I was still the first to apply for it.

I'm a volunteer firefighter, and I end up wearing the "Sparky" mascot costume in parades pretty often.

"Painful Rectal Itch" was already taken.

Because the rules said "No wildcards". I don't need a whole story about jail time, perjury, witness tampering, or a Reebok box full of receipts and a product name on one end. I'm doing this from a tablet, can't properly type with two thumbs.

I was listening to Blonde on Blonde, side three, penultimate track while trying to come up with a name.

Peppermill restaurant here in Las Vegas. My favorite item on the menu. Sounds like a good porn name too.

From my favorite* TV show, The Simpsons of course.

* Seasons 3-9

This is how I said my first and middle name when I was making my first attempts to do so at about three years of age.

It's been my family's nickname for me ever since then, which as of this writing is 44 years and counting.

I live in France, in department 77(they don't do county or parish).
Had been lurking on Fark for awhile and was feeling homesick.
When I'm homesick I listen to the Grateful Dead.
Some Farker was so wrong about something I decided to stop lurking
The song that was playing was Tennessee Jed.

Sparky the Fire Dog: I'm a volunteer firefighter, and I end up wearing the "Sparky" mascot costume in parades pretty often.


That's a creative way to hide a female firefighter during the fundraisers.

Character from The Satyricon, which I was reading at the time and still adore, as I do fark.

I'm trapped in a parallel universe which is going to end in a few hours according to some ancient Egyptian calendar.

cochlear: hen boom: lost my hearing. Fast forward a couple decades, during which my world shrank and contracted to nearly nothing.


If losing one's hearing was good enough for Beethoven, it's good enough for you, Mr Snowflake.

I wanted "Jerky", had to settle for Jerkymeat.

I had one from years ago and couldn't remember it and the old email addy was gone, and as I was listening to the radio at the time, "Big Dog Daddy" by Toby Keith was on...so there ya go.
 
2012-12-21 02:25:00 AM  
First initial

Bartman was my nickname in the Army - given to me the day after that Simpson's episode aired - last name is very close.

68 - birth year & fave 69 joke - "you do me & I'll owe you one".

I'll say. It should have been spelled "Epifany."

Used to be the contents of my blood. I quit smoking four years ago. Had no idea it was the name of an obscure European band.

I tried to pick the most random thing that popped into my mind, which was:

the part in American Psycho (the book, not the movie), where Patrick Bateman gives his girlfriend a chocolate covered urinal cake, but instead of that I for some reason thought chocolate on poo is more funny (?) since they both are the same color.

But in a deeper sense there are many things in life we sugar coat that are ultimately shiat inside. And by sight alone one cannot discern the two very easily, but take a whiff, or pop it in your mouth, and you know what you've got.
 
2012-12-21 02:25:34 AM  
Oh, and I'm an asshole.

I always found the idea of dying by a tiny clot of zombies in the leg hilarious. Thus, Deep Vein Zombosis.

I picked this name for Diablo II because it was random and unique. I quit playing that, but I kept the name.

Guess.

AOL cut my attempt at "Confabulate" off at 10 letters and I've just used it for most things ever since, no one else does. Besides, I've grown into the term over the years.

Ha. Really it's just because the rest of 'em wear dress uniforms, and they don't have one that fits me. I do have the functional gear though, so, good enough!
 
2012-12-21 02:28:18 AM  
See my profile. All will be revealed within.

Seriously. And there's a really good story about life, death, and life in there. Along with fire, true love, assholes, and many more things. You'll like it ;)

I drink coffee. In the morning.

"Thief" (my old blog handle) was taken. So I chose "MasterThief" instead.

Turns out it's from a Bob Dylan song. What a sneaky thing of my brain to do... and not tell me!

JerkyMeat: I wanted "Jerky", had to settle for Jerkymeat.


Made me think: "Hotdog Byproduct" would be a good user name

Thrag: It came from this far side, but evidently I didn't recall the spelling of the name correctly when I started using it.


The interesting bit about that cartoon, is that until that point the spikes had no specific name, and the 'thagomizer' name stuck: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thagomizer

I guess I'm just not that creative.

I picked my name as a symbolic gesture that I would take the brunt of scorn and ridicule that like-minded individuals would face if they posted the same things that I feel (or do I?).

Alcohol was, and is, involved.

Hipness is transient and superfluous. Coolness is innate and permanent.
I'm unhip, therefore I'm cool.

Mine is from the days of echo-mail and FidoNet.

/CSB

I was a bad seed in my younger years, hanging out in the religious feeds of FidoNet, ripping and giving shiat to fundamentalist freaks.

My nick came up from a comment made in the feed after I had forced my way into the mail system to play havoc on mail packets.

I set up my own FidoNet node and subscribed to all the religious feeds and then the alternative wacko sex feeds. I wrote down the names of the most retarded fundies. Then, I used a compiler to take huge mail packets from the religious and sex feeds and changed the to and from fields to the fundie names with mail from the sex feeds.

After compiling was finished, I found a mail hub in another state that uploaded the religious feeds to a larger regional hub for distribution. Luckily, he wouldn't be password protected - as most BBSes weren't in those days on their frontend software. I reconfigured my frontend to look like one of the hub's clients and pushed my dirty packet through.

A day or two later, my work had spread itself all over the globe to whoever subscribed to the religious feeds. I sat down to read how one fundie asked another fundy how he liked the thong panties he got him, other conversations touched on the topic of golden showers and even scat. Now, I just had to wait to see if the fundies would take the bait.

They did. They started flaming others that appeared to be homosexual, severely offended at the scat mail - you name it, they bought it. I consider it to be the funniest goddamn moment in my entire life. A little while later, after they started to calm down and realize they'd been made fools of, they blamed it on a person out there of maximum hatred that worked for satan.

I changed my nick to Satanus Maximus. Thanks!

At least you understand that sometimes it's hip to be square.
