What is your opinion on infantilised animal names?

Things like “danger noodle”, “formal chicken” and “murder log”.
Do you use this terminology?

I am not at all sure what you’re talking about and I’m not sure I want to know!

No opinion, but all three would make excellent band names.

Right there with yo, @cookieman. I have long thought that “Trash Panda” would be an excellent Korean metal boy band name.

You mean things like Killer Kitten?

I don’t spend a lot of time, correction, ANY time forming an opinion. How’s the job thing going Luigi?

Oh, come on. Don’t be such a grump. It’s cute.

I had never heard of this, but it’s kinda funny. It’s actually similar to how many animal names arise linguistically. The Chinese characters for “panda” literally mean “giant bear cat”. It’s like a 3-year-old named it. lol

I love them because they are terms of endearment. They aren’t insults.

If someone called my dog “Little Rocket Baxter” or “Lyin’ Rufus” I’d kick them in the nuts.

I like them as terms of endearment. My dog has an actual name, but we often just call her “Fuzzy Butt” or “Fur Bottom”.

I think they’re funny, but no I don’t use names like that for mine.

We used to call Dutchess “Yupid.”
