Firstly, in an episode of The Simpsons, a woman tells Flanders that her name is “Zelda Fitzgerald”, and he instantly recognises this as a pseudonym. How? What makes it a pseudonym on sight?
Secondly, in Futurama, Bender Bending Rodriguez is given a pseudonym, Blotto, to which he mentions he can keep his monogram slippers. What does Blotto have to do with his name or a monogram of it?
These have been bugging me for years. What do they mean?
