Thanks to my near-daily ‘How I Met Your Mother’ episode, used as a cooldown from a long day of getting yelled at by strangers, I was reminded that humble lawyer Marshall Eriksen, Esquire, is also legendary skeeball champion Big Fudge.  It’s important to choose your skeeball alias carefully, just as your choice of three-letter-initials in the old days of video game arcades, as that becomes your game identity.  I was “JJS” (a Bronze Blok award to anyone not named Stephen who can tell me why, so here’s your chance, careful Top 5 listeners!), while my friend The Stork went with “DIX”, leading to today’s eponymous query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) would probably go with Mighty King Cobra, because the bathroom fixture people would probably put a C&D on ‘Torq’, asking: What would be your nickname if and when you finally unseat the mighty Big Fudge?

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture! And a nice red uniform.
