I liked a really obscure Simpsons reference. It wasn't until after I decided on this that I found a second Homer J. Fong over on The Other Arena, although I had used it on non-wrestling boards prior to the birth of this board.
It's from the "bad cheque" list during the Homer & Apu go to India episode. The list is populated by variants of Homer's name (Homor Simpson, Homer S. Simpson), with the final one being Homer J. Fong.
me either. Grew up on Dick the Bruiser and Crusher and the Blackjacks and Tricky Nick Bockwinkle and the rest of Verne Gagne's bunch watching and occasionally attending in the Chicago area. So I thought that should be part of my screen name.
You should've probably put this in random. It's gonna get closed sooner rather than later, I'd venture to say.
I've been Fuzzy for years. In high school, me and my friends joked about starting a rap group - The East Coast Krakaz, and came up with the least threatening and stupidest sounding rap names we could. I was Fuzzy McSnuggles. (Eventually, I dropped the McSnuggles because, well, that much should be obvious.) Somehow, though, the Fuzzy name stuck.
A few years ago, Ol' Dirty Bastard announced he was changing his name to "Big Baby Jesus". (Which didn't take, it would seem.) I couldn't figure out how anyone would trade in the coolest name in the world like that, but took advantage of it's inactivity and called "dibs!". I've been Ol' Fuzzy Bastard ever since.
"Of course the people don't want war ...but, after all, it is the leaders of the country who determine the policy, and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament or a communist dictatorship ... voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is to tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger." ----------Hermann Goering, one of the original Nazis at his Nuremberg trial in 1946
EDIT: Although my original "weiner-name" back during the EZBoard days was Alessandro "Hercules" Boondy ("Al Boondy" for short), a tribute to the DMV episode of Married ... With Children.
It was the online name I've used on various message boards previously, but once Weinerville was moved to its own server, I decided to simplify (since "Alessandro" had already been taken by some faceless Global User on a different EZBoard) and go with just the real first name.

bash for my alma mater, Wabash College, one of the last all-male liberal arts colleges left in the US, one half of the longest continuous football rivalry west of the Alleghanies (sp?), current holder of the Monon Bell, and currently preparing for their 2nd round game in the Div III playoffs.
91 for the year of my graduation from the aforementioned school and the receipt of my diploma in a dead language on a dead animal.

My unfortunate name in my backyard wrestling fed with my friends. You'd think they'd let a guy off the hook after so many years, but it was the first thing that popped into my head as I made my first appearance. Intended to strike fear into the hearts of the masses, instead everyone erupted into laughter. I guess its hard to take someone serious when they see a camera pop onto them and they shout out, "I'm HardCore Joe, Let's Go!" I then stunned the air to make my point that I was indeed hardcore/crazy. I've since shortened it to HCJ.
Treasure Planet kicked all kinds of ass. Do yourself a favor and check it out when it comes to a theater near you.
Jaguar Stryker has been my online alter-ego for the past ten years. It started mostly with online Role-Playing games (whee! MU*'s!) and over time the character of Jaguar Stryker gradually became a part of who I am. So I figured, "Why stop now?"
Oh and I always shorten it to Jaguar whenever possible. If you've got the 'Jaguar' name, then it puts you a step above all those with Jaguar variants.
Oh and Fuzzy, you're not the only one to try and stake a claim on ODB's name. One of my friend's nicknames was ODC. Ol' Dirty Cracker.
(edited by Jaguar on 25.11.02 1207) With poison running through your veins, and death marching solemnly towards you, heroic acts become more of a necessity as you see your time dwindling.
Vanquishing your enemies, making amends to those you have wronged, and leaving words of love and kindness for those around you become second nature as your own mortality looms
However, true strength lies not in these last desperate acts, but in the actions of one who has to get out of bed the next day and face the consequences of doing that which you believe is right.
My first ever post was spent defending the Torch.com website. I was trying to show how there could be fans of websites like the Torch and fans of Slashwrestling. Of course now that Slash is inactive pretty much, and because I don't go to the Torch website anymore, my name doesn't hold the emotional punch it used to :-).

People will never be happy in these situations. If they replaced him, all these people with the John Ritter hyberbole would complain that he's irreplaceable. Now they kill the character off, and people complain that it's in poor taste.
