I appreciate your motivation, Andy.  But I think I'll stick with plain vanilla civil-but-witty posts.  It's what got me here.  Should probably be good for a few thousand more.

Sounds like a challenge! Let's bombard Mark with such civil-but-witty avatars that he can't possibly fail to be charmed by one and decide that it should be the new visual clue to Hammer-wisdom on DIYSB! ;)
I'm always open to civil and witty charm, but I'd have to see them, Tom.  And I haven't enabled that
You may see our avatars, Mark, but I think what Tom meant was that we make suggestions for YOUR new avatar until you are either so charmed by one that you decide to adopt it or so annoyed by us that you will surrender to our civil-but-relentless pestering 8)

If I may do the honors:


And the signature that obviously goes with that:
I have come here to chew bubble gum and kick ass. And I'm all out of bubble gum.

Cheers,
Andy

P.s.: Tom, your turn!

Here's a song I wrote for a band called Mucca Pazza I used to be in. This is a pretty bad live recording we made but a fun video. It's called "...All Out Of Bubblegum", and now you know why ;D

Well, it's Hammer Time somewhere.

I was wondering how long it would take for MC Hammer to be proposed. Third entry. I think it's save to say that we, as a community, are not afraid of a cheap pun ;D

When I used to have a university office, invariably some student who thought they were the first in history to have the thought would insist on inscribing a C between the "M" and "Hammer" on the door sign.  I don't know if I feel worse for the person who wrote that, or for those who came after them with that intent and realized, to their dismay, that it was not their original idea.

Do you have a middle initial, out of interest? Presumably it's not "C".

Mark indeed have a middle initial, we have the same first and middle name (Mark's is the english variation while mine's the latin variation). But sorry to say it isn't "C" :icon_cry:

My parents were concerned with avoiding contemporaneous sources of "heh, heh, heh" remarks.  The apocryphal story was that I was supposed to be Michael, but a nurse or someone in the hospital made a remark about the Micky Spillane character "Mike Hammer", that was gaining popularity at the time, and my parents thought better of it, so I became Mark.

When our youngest was born, we gave him two middle names, but hadn't decided on the order.  When it came time for me to fill out the birth registration form at the hospital, I thought about it and realized that one order would give him the initials BZT and the other order would give him BTZ.  Considering that no teenage or pre-teen boy would wish to be saddled with initials that could be pronounced as "butts" by his classmates, I went with the first order.

Names and initials are subject to all sorts of whims and snap decisions.  But enough about me  Please read the forum rules.

Lol, read 'em. You're so much more interesting!

Great story about the initials too. I totally agree that Buzz't is way cooler than Buttz.

My sister was almost "NEW", but my parents realised at the last minute that "ENW" was a better bet, so her first and middle names got swapped around. It's funny how such apparently consequential decision get made...

Here in Brazil there's a music style called música popular brasileira (brazilian popular music), which is abbreviated as MPB. It's basically bossa nova, and it's a kind of "boring music for old people" in kids' eyes but great music once you grow up and learn how to listen to nice stuff. Kinda similar to how a kid and a grown person sees jazz.

My initials are MPB. It just took a (very intelectual and smart) teacher to point this out in front of the entire class when I was 9 or 10, and I had to take stupid jokes on this for some time.

Our older son's initials are JAH.  If he ever takes a trip to Jamaica, he's in for quite a welcome.
