I very much enjoy reading the “Silly names are bad” and “Silly names are good” type threads. Got me to thinking about the names I rejected in favor of my Warner Cartoon name. I almost chose “HowlingOldOwlInTheWoods” from the next-to-indecipherable line in the Elton John song “Goodbye, Yellow Brick Road,” to wit: “I’m going back to my farm, back to the howling old owl in the woods.” I think the next line is “hooting at the horny-backed toad.” But discounted it as too long (at the time, I assumed I would have to manually enter the SDMB every time I visited, and I didn’t feel like having to constantly type half the alphabet).
My second choice was Nimp BiBi. I have an original movie poster for “Escape From New York” framed by my desk. It reads:
New York City
is a walled
Chucked it, too. Just sounded too weird. Though it would have made a great “What happens on May 33rd” type question.
