I think I drew the short straw - Fencing Nicknames

    As a lot of you know, I fence.

    I have finally been with the squad long enough now to have been given a nickname by the other members.

    The kid who looks like Spock is, logically enough, nicknamed 'Spock'.

    Then there's 'Spark', 'Maul', 'Psycho Lizzie', 'Wai Yu'...you get the idea.

    I got:

    'The-fat-and-scary-one'

    Nothing says nimble/quality fencer like being known as 'The-fat-and-scary-one'.

    Gratz The Fat and Scary One! It reminds me of the Love Guru's stupid titles for his teachings.

    Here's what to do:
    Translate "The fat and scary one" into different foreign languages until you find one that sounds cool and scary.

    In German it would be "Fett Angst ein" I think.

    iGoogle has a translator... smile

    Haha, well I'm trying to edit it.

    It started as 'The-Obese-And-Scary-One'

    They decided that was harse and gave me 'Fat'

    I'm seeing if I can get it down to an ironic 'Skinny' but I think that may be a bit or a long shot.

    Try changing the spelling:

    The Phat and Scary One.

    Completely different meaning!
