That’s the question. I’ve been asked about mine once or thrice, and that’s got me wondering about everyone else. My story, as it appears in a thread on the Borderlands 2 side, is:
“It’s just the default username the forum gave me based on my email. It’s an old email I thought was clever in high school. The thought process went something like this:
If there was a guy named “Paul O’Thead”, and he signed his name with only his first initial it would read “P. O’Thead”, and wouldn’t signing official documents as “pothead” be pretty silly?” Basically, I was just trying to think of a way to identify myself as such without explicitly saying it. It’s pure laziness that lets it live on. On a side note, this was way more talk about it than I had ever expected, and now I am wondering about everyone else’s tags. "
Is there an interesting story behind yours, is it linguistically intriguing, or is it as entertaining as watching grass grow? Please share, nothing is too mundane or outlandish.
