...if you'd like, of course.



I'm a Formula 1 fan, so mine is simply a play on the McLaren Mercedes F1 team. Noticed there was a CLA in McLaren, and for a couple seconds there felt like the Wittiest Man in the World.

"Sue Esponte" is just a play on the Latin phrase "sua sponte" meaning "of one's own accord." The screen name dates back longer than seems possible actually but it started as a joke with a friend and them just became a bad habit. At this point, it just is what it is but there is no "Sue"...just me, Eric. :D

-Eric

P.S. Great idea for a thread. ;)

I've used this on multiple forums for years.

Real life nickname that I originally got in Denmark. Name is Doug but Scandinavians can't pronounce it. It comes out Dawg.
A few good parties in Copenhagen and a few other cities and it became Maddog.
The 78 got added cause Maddog was already taken on a forum I joined and as that was often the case I stuck with it.
It's in honor of my '78 Shovelhead chopper that I've owned for over 20 years.

... soon to be McLaren Honda Racing! ;)

I'm addicted to popping bubblewrap.
... seems like anything "bubbles" has it's fans, whether it's kids & blowing bubbles or adults popping bubblewrap! :p

... ok, that's very cool! Even more that I'm into Latin & couldn't make the connection! :eek:

... more-or-less the same w/ me, my usual forum user-ID (derived from middle/nick name & "Skunkworks" nomenclature)! :cool:

My nickname refers to my first car I bought (did have some company cars before).... an 1958 Oldsmobile Dynamic 88 with a Rocket engine.
... that's a hot ride, wow! Still got it? :D

Aydo is a lifelong nickname I got from family in Lebanon. It makes no sense in Arabic or English. But a nickname is a nickname.

I had been lurking on the site for a while- the more I read, the more I kept thinking "I want that AMG". That immediately brought to mind the beginning of "Money for Nothing" by Dire Straits- "I want my M-Tee-Veeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!"

poker reference... specifically hold 'em
for those not familiar with the game...
an 'out' refers to a card you need win if you're behind
a common bummer is betting up a pair before the 'flop' (first three community cards) and getting called by trash that subsequently makes a higher pair
you are then left with two cards in the deck to improve your hand to three of a kind on the last two cards or...
two outs twice
