Some people have cool nicknames and some don’t…it’s just the way life goes.
Think about it this way: would you rather be called Lazer because you are awesome or have folks call you Dips**t because you’re not too bright?
I think you know the correct answer…
Check out these funny tweets about people who had pretty silly nicknames.
1. Mr. Words.
That one hurts.
Years ago when I worked in a large office I used the word ‘trebuchet’ during a conversation with a colleague about castles, was overheard by the obligatory office wankers and henceforth became known as ‘Mr Words’.

2. College boy.
Mr. Smarty Pants.
There is a chap in our village whose nickname is ‘college’ – because he went to college.

3. Wearing it with pride.
You sound pretty bright…
I am a non-native English speaker working in a law firm. I have a better grasp of grammar than most of my colleagues and occasionally get called “Dictionary Corner”. I wear it with pride.

4. Mr. Parsnips.
At least you sound healthy.
Once at a YMCA cafeteria in Nottingham, I asked for, “Just a plate of roast parsnips,” and was thereafter Mr Parsnips.

5. I’m your buckaroo!
That was a big mistake.
As a teenager in the early nineties I saved up and bought what I thought were an amazing pair of cowboy boots.. to this day if I see any of my old mates from those days they still call me buckaroo ?

6. Hey, it’s The Fonz!
Kids are ruthless.
Lad in school wore a faux leather jacket when we were kids. He’s still called Fonzy 30 years later
Another lad in the class wore a coat with a furry hood. He’s still known as Eskimo to this day.
The guy who dared slick back his hair once…. Gringo
Kids are ruthless

8. It backfired on you.
Where’s your band?

9. I found Waldo!
That took a while.
I once wore a red and white striped jumper to the dentist and a kid loudly and excitedly whispered to her mother “Found him!”

10. Problems with the spaceship.
Take me to your leader.
I once wore a silver jacket to college, turned up late for class, said ‘sorry I’m late’, lecturer said, ‘that’s ok’ then waited til I was halfway across the front of the full class before following up with ‘trouble with the spaceship again was it?’.
