@lucillelucillelucille It surely is!
He was a puppet sci-fi detective type kid & wore these huge big glasses…hence the nickname craze.

Met a scrawny little guy called moose. I found it amusing, then learned it was no joke.

I was dubbed “relentless” by an employer back in the day. It was a term of respect. I called him brawny, as his picture should be on the paper towels.

I called my husband Dinky, but not for the reason people thought. It referenced the character Dinky Dragon, because his morning breath could kill weeds.

@Patty_Melt -Too funny!
The Brawny paper towel guy is hot! I used to think the crown went to Mr. Clean. or Mr. Bubble if you like zany. XD

@lucillelucillelucille If you read back your answer insanely fast then the h makes sense.

@ucme -It does! If you read it back 5 times fast while holding your tongue with the salad tongs you will learn the meaning of life.
