    This New Game is entitled: "The Bum Game."
    To play, the only two qualifications is: 1. Be able to type and 2. Be honest.
    Think before you answer.
    If you were going to live life as a Bum, what would your New Name be?
    I am going to start with My New Bum Name:
    "Carl"
    Your turn!

      I think my name would be "Hey, you", because that's what most people seem to call out when they see a Bum. They don't seem to see a person, at all, which is sad.

        RoadMonkey--I really like that. Hey, you is very original. It is a lot more respectful than just saying YOU!

        That reminds me of the movie Homeward Bound where the dog voiced my Michael Fox thought its name was NO  because that was all it heard.


        Also, you could say Pink Floyd wrote the song Hey You for you.

      I believe bum means "a traveler without a destination" which I have not lived and don't expect to. I have lived a traveler for educating myself and the name others gave me was "NatureBoy" which I live proudly. It's meaning is "living with one foot in civilization and the other in the self-reproducing environment so if either drops off I will still be able to survive".

    Willie (as in Boxcar Willie)


    my grandfather's name was William and I just liked that name William Warren.

    This is fun Kenneth.
    How about Roger, as in Roger Miller 'King of the Road'. I know it's a male name, but that's OK.

      Time-out:
      Great, snakeslane and mike102771!
      We all sit in a moving freight train and could say,
      Hi, Roger! Hi Willie! See?

        Mine would be "The Breeze" or just plain Breeze.  As in the Lynyrd Skynyrd song, "They call me the breeze, cause I just keep blowing down the road".
