impaler: Some people think my name is a reference to Vlad or some sort of kinky sex thing. Really it was just the name I was using in Action Quake at the time I signed up for fark.


What is Action Quake and WHERE CAN I GET IT!??!

In retrospect, I wish I would have picked Your_toothbrush_is_my_assbrush.

From a video game that got really popular about 3-4 years ago. Also not a canon name, but I like it and the numbers are related to how the story progresses.

Why would you admit that?

Why not? I wasn't a Hog or anything, so I'm not _that_ weird.

Why do they call you Jerky anyway?

I previously utilized the handle "Dimension". On one occasion, I accidentally mistyped it when setting my IRC handle. My then-boyfriend preferred the resulting handle and I have used it since.

I made it up. It's alliterative. I suppose 'Porous Horace' could be a medieval knight, known for, say, holes in his armour, or a propensity for getting lanced.

I had a "vision" one night in a friend's basement that cracked me up so hard I couldn't breathe. There was this big abacus floating in the clouds, but instead of beads, it had testicles. For counting. I had to append my favorite number because Abacus was already taken.

Means 'language' in archaic Greek (the 'w' is an omega, so it's pronounced as an 'o').

It was the first random word I could think of at the time.

I figured there was a reason whenever Jesus went missing, they went looking for the drinkers and the whores.

I thought it was a play on words for Hocus Pocus, but eh, I like your idea better.

Its a variation on the two other ones I use: Doctor Von Batarang and Doctor Violence. Maybe more "Pulp" for the higher brow crowd around here ;).

It started with a weird dream: A Robot Chicken style cartoon of kids playing Super Robot co-op game. A nerdy kid uses a "randomizer" function to generate his mech and is saddled a hideous purple thing, and is promptly mocked out of the game by teammates. He then logs out and rejoins, again using the "randomizer" function. This time he receives a mec that is, essentially, the BBC miniseries version of Marvin the Paranoid Android only with an armor plate where his face should be making it impossible to see. The kid then screams "DAMMIT WHY DO I KEEP GETTING STUCK WITH THE STUPID ROBOTS" and trips over a mountain. I burst out of a dead sleep LMFAO and startled the crap out of my then girlfriend. Later, I told the story to an artist friend who was prompted to create the cartoon of me as a robot that is in my profile including a bumper sticker on my head that read "Now I Is". When asked why he simply stated that it "Just seemed to fit". I couldn't disagree.

I once had a site called "The Psychedelicatessen". From that, I used the name "Psychedelicat" for a while years ago. When I opened my Fark account, I shortened it to "Psycat". And, no, I'm not some Korean cat who runs around singing "Wope, wope, Gag-Me Style!"

I now have a much cooler name for my public persona. Since I like my anonymity, I'm not going to reveal it here...

/this might actually be my last fark post
//i might be working on a music video soon that i hope will go viral
///and there will be a new game coming out this year with my face on it
////i really hope my 15 minutes of fame outside of fark isn't over

Long ago... posting a response to a thread on some site called Fark.  Had to make a user name and noticed two cats staring at me with that "Why is she hitting that tappy thing and staring at that box when she could play with us instead?" look.  Made the user name, then got out the laser pointer.  Flying cats!!

Promptly forgot about the site entirely for many months until a friend asked "Hey, have you ever been on Fark.com".  It sounded vaguely familiar.
 
2012-12-21 02:40:38 AM  
A combination of the words "Snarky" and "Narcoleptic", implying uncontrollable fits of dickishness. Also, I'm from Indiana.

Gwynplaine is the hero of Victor Hugo's story 'The Man who Laughs' A man who is disfigured to have a permanent smile on his face. (Gwynplaine is acknowledged as being the inspiration behind The Joker (Physically)
For years I worked with children with Angelman's Syndrome, which has the pleasant side effect of making the child always happy and leaves them with a huge smile on their face.
I later got cancer of the perotid gland and the surgery severed nerves in my face leaving me with some permanent facial paralysis, and now when I smile its a big goofy disfigured smile.
I find it relatable.

Kermit the frog plus Opus the Penguin = kermitopus

This is the kind of handle you come up with when your original choice is taken so you look around your office and think, "well, I have a stuffed opus (yuppy opus, though I think it was bathtub opus back then) and a Kermit the frog figure, how about KermitOpus."  I also do a better Kermit than the guy in the new movie, so I have that going for me.

AJ is my initials and nickname.
No site anywhere let's you use a 2 letter username.
My favorite Quarterhorse was nicknamed Ajax as he had a white tornado shaped star on his forehead.
So I stole his name for I-net use.
Been using it for years even though I don't work with horses anymore.
So It Goes.

Your random word generator is better than mine.

I came up with "the".

True story. Just asked myself "come up with a random word". Brain came back with "the." Really brain? You suck.

I wanted to do some sort of play on words, At the time I was just killing time surfing Fark (what else is new?) and feeling a bit spaced out from spending too much time staring at my computer screen online in cyberspace.

Awesome comedian. Love the one about the donut receipt and "I haven't slept for ten days, cuz that would be too long."

Pretty sure it was from some movie. Star Trekwars or something.

well it wasn't the first name I tried to use. I kept getting name taken messages. But it was basically I like Norse mythology and at the time I smoked a lot of pot. So I mixed the two and here we are 6 and a half years later.

In "The Luck of the Fryrish" Fry calls himself Cosmic F. And the picture in my profile of the old LA Galaxy logo looks like a space joint.

Mickey Mouse is having a nasty divorce with Minnie Mouse. Mickey spoke to the judge about the separation. "I'm sorry Mickey, but I can't legally separate you two on the grounds that Minnie is mentally insane..." Mickey replied, "I didn't say she was mentally insane, I said that she's farkin Goofy!"

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


Just thought I'd add that culottes in modern French means underwear (or panties for women) but originated from the long leggings men wore during the Middle Ages.

And somewhat related segway to mine, lumiere is French for light. My full name translates to 'enlightened night' so I just chose light for Fark, despite the fact I'm more of a nocturnal Farkette. And no, I didn't choose it because of the Disney 'Beauty and the Beast'  candelabra.

 /panties and a bra in one post and completely unrelated
