Could be the picture. Although, I suppose you would've had to have seen Transformers to know that.

I saw the show when I was a little kid and remember almost nothing.  I saw a holocost (did I forget how to spell that word?) surviver speak yesterday and my Jewish teacher asked me her name today and I did not know.  Anyway, if you really thought most people would know that, it makes your comment even better.  Like a N.D. moment.

<--- From the mythos of Attis, a man that was born to the mixing of demon and human in ancient greek mythos that later would kill himself in grief to be reborn as a woman. :shock:

No real significance just liked it as a handle.
The pink bunny thing goes back to my first serious boyfriend's pet name for me.

I thought it up several years ago when my little sister had a furby. She got tired of it after about 3 days and left it in the computer room. I was in there, thinking of a name to use for some registration or another and thought how funny it'd be to have furbies be rabid and attack the little kids who begged and pleaded their parents for one.

I also occaisionally use GimmeFuel, from the Metallica song Fuel, because I like Metallica and burning things.

SNL skit.  I think its pretty funny, cause it's just a name unless you've seen the skits.

Band name.  I'd misread an album title once and thought it said whether head.  Thought it sounded stupid at the time.  A few months later, I was reminded of it and thought it sounded better.   I suggested it to the guys and we all liked it.

As for the avatar.  You'll have to read the book FLATLAND: A ROMANCE OF MANY DIMENSIONS by Edwin A. Abbott to understand it.

The pink bunny with the shotgun?
What did he call you for a pet name, "my pretty little pink ass-kickin' rifle-bunny?"
