Where does your username come from?
« on: July 14, 2013, 09:52:25 am »
I'm always curious as to why members give themselves specific usernames.

Many are funny, unusual, intriguing, scary, bizarre..... !    :008:

I'm sure I'm not the only one who's curious, so where did your username come from and why did you choose it ?

Mine was selected for me after a "work related meeting" held in a local Bar,
where I had neglected to take a fully loaded wallet.  :027:

The next morning I was given the nickname, along with the comment,
"At least you can get a drink out of a F :172: ing Coconut ! "

Seems to have stuck, although I like to think I'm a bit more generous these days  :821:
