Nicknames. Get yer nicknames here!

December 14th, 2007 by Bill Corbett · 252 Comments

When I was twelve years old I was given a nickname by my friend’s older brother. We were playing basketball in his driveway one morning, when his brother, who was home from college for the summer, stumbled out and joined the game.

He wasn’t one of those guys who competes at full tilt against younger kids. As I recall, he was a generous, easygoing guy. In retrospect, he may have even been a few bong hits into his day already.

At some point I made a decent jump shot and older bro said “Yeah, Fedora!” And from that point on he just kept calling me “Fedora.” Never having heard the word before (this was prehistoric times, when the word had nothing to do with open source software), I asked college boy what it meant.

As you probably know, it’s a hat. He let me know that, but also claimed my new moniker really had nothing to do with hats, per se — I wasn’t wearing one, after all. I just… seemed like a “Fedora.”

A classic Borsalino. Lovely hat, but nothing to me with me, really.

Yeah, it could have been the breakfast ganja talking. The nickname seemed awfully random to me. And yet it stuck among my friends for a few years, and I really didn’t mind it, even if I could never explain it.

In honor of my friend Kenny’s affable (if stoned) older brother, then, I offer you this chance for your own Random Nickname.

Just let me know you’re interested below, and I’ll quickly — and randomly, as promised — assign you a Random Nickname. Feel free to tell me a little about yourself, perhaps 15 words maximum. But know that like Kenny’s way mellow older brother, I may be distracted by a cool bird outside, or some weird dirt on my fingernail, or is it, like, paint?, or a deep thought about the nature and purpose of the universe, and ignore it. In fact, this is likely.

If you complain about your Random Nickname, I will automatically issue you a new one: Stinky. And if you think you’re out of danger because someone else has already been christened Stinky, not so fast: from then on it will be Stinky II, Stinky III, Stinky IV, etc., and so forth, ad infinitum.

On the sunnier side, I pledge not to Random Nickname anyone Lumpy or Itchy.

If you want an RN*, just write “Hit me, Riffclown” below.

(*Random Nickname, not Registered Nurse. If it’s the latter you’re after, you’ll have to come up with one yourself. )

    Though my spleefing days are behind me, I feel confident that enough net brain cells perished for me to make a go of this.

    Fire away.

  • 2 Spice Weasel on Dec 14, 2007 at 7:23 pm

    Ooh am I first? I’d like a nickname, please. A little about myself. I enjoy mellow cheeses and a good thermos.

    You are

    KLEENEX

    Hey, I want in on this random nicknaming business, please!

  • 5 Lord Bob on Dec 14, 2007 at 7:42 pm

    Oh Riffster, please do hit me with your random goodness. SWM, 5′11″, of full build, enjoys walks on the beach. Seeking associate for friendship, maybe more.

  • 6 Adam on Dec 14, 2007 at 7:46 pm

    Oh wait, the things about myself. I got so excited I forgot:

    I play guitar and enjoy ham. One time I saw a blimp.

    I enjoy swing music and swing dancing, but not the swing choir.

  • 10 Mindy on Dec 14, 2007 at 8:03 pm

    Please, Mr Corbett, give me a nickname! I am a middle aged housewife that spends far too much time reading blogs. Thank you.

  • 11 John on Dec 14, 2007 at 8:04 pm

    Please Help me Bill!! I have been dubbed – Burner & Doobey Brother as a kid (never having smoked let alone weed… then) But now I am nicknameless and have been for soo long. Please O wise one Christen me a new!

    Bill,
    You are hilarious on RiffTrax!

    I’m Queen Bee’s husband. I’m a pilot and air traffic controller. And I’ve also seen a blimp (on radar)!

  • 16 Kete on Dec 14, 2007 at 8:16 pm

  • 17 Bill Corbett on Dec 14, 2007 at 8:22 pm

    NERF

  • 19 Kete on Dec 14, 2007 at 8:27 pm

    Wow, you’re good at this! Much like Nerf, I am also harmless, and not as much fun as you’d think.

  • 20 Queen Bee on Dec 14, 2007 at 8:29 pm

    Aw, sweet! I’ve gone from working the concession stand on prom night to a Queen Bee.

    Hooray for the way we’ve chosen to spend our Friday night: Nicknames With Corbett!

  • 21 Queen Bee on Dec 14, 2007 at 8:32 pm

    Excuse me; that should read Nicknames With Fedora. Must be accurate.

  • 22 Bill Corbett on Dec 14, 2007 at 8:33 pm

    Must go.

    More RN tomorrow…

    …if you dare.

    [Tension hit, quick fade to black.]

  • 23 Fantabulizer on Dec 14, 2007 at 8:43 pm

    I enjoy non sequiturs, elaborate storytelling, and complaining. I thank you in advance for the nickname, and thank you for all the riffing!

  • 24 Spatula on Dec 14, 2007 at 8:44 pm

    Wow, thanks! That is one nickname with 0% jive.

    Hit me, Riffclown, I dare ya,

    I like to ride my horse when he’s feeling up to it.

    Thanks a million for all the laughs.

  • 27 Daisyj on Dec 14, 2007 at 9:16 pm

    Ooh, fun! I’ve gone by a nickname all my life, but I think it’s past its sell-by date by now. I work in the field of moving tiny amounts of fluid from one tube to another, and then turning on machines, and I have never been to Dallas.

  • 28 Mathias on Dec 14, 2007 at 9:26 pm

    Hit me, Riffclown. Apply a moniker at will!

  • 29 chris on Dec 14, 2007 at 10:02 pm

    I drink heavily and live my life steeped in bitterness!

  • 30 Steve-O on Dec 14, 2007 at 10:13 pm

    I demand nickname, though I already have many, most of them unprintable.

    As for things about me: there are none to speak of. I simply am.

  • 31 Ryan on Dec 14, 2007 at 10:40 pm

    I am a ameture photographer photographer who enjoys soda.

  • 32 Kleenex on Dec 14, 2007 at 10:43 pm

    A nickname at last! Eat it, losers!

  • 33 ern2150 on Dec 14, 2007 at 10:43 pm

    Nick me, Fedora! I’m that guy at the thing doing the stuff, but not in that order.

  • 34 Mr. Slick on Dec 14, 2007 at 10:48 pm

    From your lips (or keyboard) to God’s ears!

  • 35 BF on Dec 14, 2007 at 10:53 pm

    I, as an entrepreneurial young man, have recognized the need for a Bill Corbett inspired nickname generator, and would like to offer you the opportunity of a lifetime! Take my advice and create http://www.Nick-Me-Bill.com, charging a nominal fee of 19.95 for the honor of having one of our generations best and brightest shine his gift upon your namesake. You’d make millions, my friend.

    I’m a comedy song writer with the correct number of fingers.

  • 37 Eddie Colton on Dec 15, 2007 at 1:48 am

    Ah, Mr. Fedora, it seems, has stumbled upon the single most surefire way to get people’s attention on the internet: make the topic about THEM. I discovered this many years ago and quickly tired of it, as, like people, I am not interested in people, only myself. The catch-22 of instant internet popularity. You can only make yourself instantly popular by making other people think you’re making them instantly popular! Alternately, you can make yourself sound or look like Darth Vader. That one takes a little more work.

    So, there’s this cave-like thing near my house that is merely a space between a cliff and a big rock, and I haven’t bothered to seek it out again.

    “Hit me, Riffclown.”

    By the by, you must realize a nickname is not a nickname unless the nicknamer remembers it. Therefore, on behalf of all the nicknamed, I decree all past and future nicknames null and void until such time as said nicknamer reprises mention of also said nicknames sans reminder. As such, all those nicknamed shall have their nicknames officially revoked if they utter or mention the nicknames themselves, as it would naturally render them worthless. We can’t have people going around using their own nicknames, can we? Not, at least, until said nicknames are undeniably “stuck.”

  • 38 Pak-Man on Dec 15, 2007 at 2:00 am

    I’m 31, married, and enjoy video games.

    Hit me, Riffclown!

  • 39 Courtney on Dec 15, 2007 at 2:07 am

    I am wide-awake at 4am CST. I feel that it twas the fates which brought me out of my sleep and into this blog. Name me, Corbett. I think it might be divine intervention.

  • 40 Bill on Dec 15, 2007 at 3:23 am

    I’m awake early on a Saturday to go do a kids’ music radio show, and yet I am not a creepy old man, nor do I go by the name of Bonkers or any other clown name. Also, I am a law professor by day.

  • 41 customcartoons on Dec 15, 2007 at 4:06 am

    Hit me, Riffclown!

    Stay-at-home mom of 2, who -like the name implies- draws cartoons. Husband can’t understand why she want to be a filmmaker someday. But don’t let any of that sway your muse.

    C’mon! You went to bed at 8:30 ish last night, and it’s 4:00 AM now! Folks need their nicknames awreddy!

    Poor Fedora is going to be nicknaming for days. :)

  • 44 Onil on Dec 15, 2007 at 5:13 am

    Hit me, Riffclown. (Pardon me for calling you a Riffclown. I would never purposefully have done it had you not first given your permission.)

    I love drag cabaret. Just last week, my wife and
    step-kids were at the American Museum of Natural History.

  • 45 Jen on Dec 15, 2007 at 5:18 am

    Name me, baby. I would especially appreciate anything that would look good printed on the dressing room door of a Vegas magician’s assistant – you know, just in case I ever decide to become one.

  • 46 Josh P on Dec 15, 2007 at 5:36 am

    Alight on me a RN, dear Fedora! I am a 20-something SWM who enjoys cottage cheese and has a penchant for Italian conveyer belts.

    [There's a joke here somewhere about your RN and the Disney cartoon "Johnny Fedora" (available on YouTube). Perhaps a distant relative of yours?]

  • 47 Slade Rockfist on Dec 15, 2007 at 5:47 am

    Since you’re apparently done giving out names, Bill, I guess I have to stick with what I’ve got…..

  • 48 Courtney on Dec 15, 2007 at 6:47 am

    I’m so about to feel ubernerdy, but were you perchance the same Onil who was “Dumbschmoe” on the old Dominion board?

  • 49 missgrace on Dec 15, 2007 at 6:48 am

    Hit me, Riffclown.

    I’m 28, married, a librarian who loves video games and everything geeky.

    It’s totally him, and I’m Lady Kenobi. Hi!

  • 52 Mindy on Dec 15, 2007 at 7:00 am

    Thank you. From this day forward, I will direct children and spouse to address me as THE PROFESSOR. I will rule the household! In a way I haven’t figured out yet.

  • 53 Courtney on Dec 15, 2007 at 7:02 am

    You guys! It’s like a reunion and such! Once upon a time, I was Cosmic Princess.

  • 54 Courtney on Dec 15, 2007 at 7:09 am

    I picture Bill sitting at home buried in printouts of all these requests, sobbing “I didn’t know! I JUST DIDN’T KNOW!”

  • 55 doggans on Dec 15, 2007 at 7:56 am

    I’m a 26 year old librarian and aspiring writer and humorist.

  • 57 Merat on Dec 15, 2007 at 7:58 am

    Male librarian, I should specify. I find that if I don’t people assume otherwise.

  • 58 Onil on Dec 15, 2007 at 8:08 am

    That was me. And I’m also A Pretty Girl Is Like over at the Rifftrax forum. And the above mentioned wife is wurwolf.

    And you were also Princess Tauni, I think. Definitely one of those two princesses.

    And hey again, Mary Beth!

  • 59 Ron on Dec 15, 2007 at 8:12 am

    Make with the nickname, my good Fedora. Unlike you, I have a fedora, but I can’t wear it over my giant head full of hockey hair (modern type, not classic mullet… I wish I could pull off a mullet).

  • 103 The Professor on Dec 15, 2007 at 12:19 pm

    Sorry you didn’t get your nickname, Mr. Denby. You were just too elusive.

    -Hammock

  • 106 Tyrant on Dec 15, 2007 at 1:28 pm

    All my nicknames have always sucked. I look to you, brilliant one, for a fitting name that’s not my Internet handle.

    I’m 32, an artist, and I like zombies. I’m also married to Pak-Man (aka Tron).

  • 107 MontyServo on Dec 15, 2007 at 2:15 pm

    Is it too late to get a nickname? Dang!

    I’m a 36yo dude that always misses out on things like this. I also like cheese.

  • 108 Tim on Dec 15, 2007 at 2:34 pm

    At the age of 7, I fell out of a tree and broke my arm. I was dressed as Indiana Jones at the time.

  • 109 Greg McIver on Dec 15, 2007 at 4:20 pm

    Hit me RiffClown. I am 24 years old. I enjoy theatre and watching old movies. I also enjoy drinking red wine while viewing episodes of the Film Crew and MST3K. I don’t need the wine in order to enjoy MST3K or the Film Crew. It just happens to be a nice pairing. Oh yes, I am also a huge Marx Brothers fan.

  • 110 Ariel on Dec 15, 2007 at 5:05 pm

    Please oh please a nickname for me? My lovely aunt is “THE PROFESSOR”
    Me? I’m 28, I’m in accounting but would rather sail around the world. And I really want a dog. My favorite scent is violets.

  • 111 Brandice on Dec 15, 2007 at 5:39 pm

    I would love a nickname. I am a twenty-something primate with a love of tea, monkeys, gaming, and apocalyptic science fiction that makes me feel like things could be much worse than they are now. Wheee!

  • 112 BlakeMP on Dec 15, 2007 at 6:36 pm

    At last, a chance to escape the nickname given to me in 9th grade when one of the upper classmen in band decided I laughed like the Pillsbury Doughboy! Hit me, Riffclown!

  • 113 BlakeMP on Dec 15, 2007 at 6:37 pm

    Dang. That’s what I get for posting before I read all the replies..

  • 116 Leigh Ann on Dec 15, 2007 at 8:31 pm

    Sure, why not. I’m a 25-year-old who works in a library. I also like clementines, which I mention because it’s the first thing I saw when I looked around, trying to think of something relevant to say. Hit me, Riffclown!

  • 117 Bill Corbett on Dec 15, 2007 at 8:36 pm

    OK, Riffclown rose from the grave for a few more, but after our friend BlakeMP — excuse me, BARACUDA — no mas.

    Must now apply my delicate mind to other pursuits, like looking up information on “Kung Fu: The Legend Continues” on IMDB.
