I couldn't find the nicknames thread so I will start a new one until the moderator can attach it to the original one. I was out reminiscing with a mate from years back, and we got talking about old school "friends". We got talking about various characters and came across one who I christened with a nickname. His name was Alex ----- Alex (real name) AINAKS (nickname) Alex: Reason: His first name AINAKS: Reason: because that's what he had imprinted on his forehead after he got hit by a Skania lorry on his way to the shops. He miscalculated the speed/time/distance equation on his way across the road. Silly cnut. Please do not cry, the Skania was fine after a respray. Oh how we liked him when we thought he was going to die. Oh how we remembered how much we didn't like him when we found out he was going to survive. Do any of my politicaly correct chums have anything to add to this? I await the informed opinion of the NAAFI Bar with cnut dribbling anticipation.
