Thanks for asking, but I have half a mind to let the minds wander and the legend grow...

However, it isn't as lurid as one might expect, or hope. A friend of mine way back in the collegiate days was trying to come up with a name for a band he was trying to form. They were a kind of funk, ska, punk type of band that did some original stuff along with some orignials basically built around a really talented bass player that really played some funky stuff. During a drinking game, we were trying to come up with clever names. James Brown was my current favorite at my time, so... to make a long story short, in reverence for the great funkmaster himself, I suggested the name "funknuggets", to which I was immediately made fun of and the name stuck and has been mine ever since. Needless to say, they didn't use the name for their band.

When all the cycling-impotence stuff resurfaces every few years, my friends all send me the articles relating to my real "nuggets"... anyway. But rest assured, as my three year old is evidence, my 'guys' are fine.

... thought it might have something to do with Mickey D's new white meat (which still doesn't expressly state "breast meat") McNuggets... which have the taste and texture of... regular McNuggets (yeah, I had 'em... with their version of BBQ sauce... eat 'em while they're hot...before the grease congels)... or worse...

ok, ok, Here is what I came up with:

DougSloth
DougSlob
DougSlope
DougShlong
DougSlot
DougSlut
etc.

Its a lot more stupid than funny, but I kinda miss that environmentalist guy and his flame posts a year or more back. Flame stuff is pretty fun to read, almost makes my day sometimes. And I got nothing to lose, so if anyone comes up with something stupid for my name, I'd love to read it.
