    Funny Nicknames

    I remember the Celtc fans calling Stuart Slater "Jigsaw" because he went to pieces in the box.
    Derek Johnstone was called tadpole by the Rangers fans because he was all head and no feet.

    Our boss has a genetic eye disorder that means his sight is continuously deteriorating, he's also a complete ****er. Our young pilots have now started calling him T-Rex because they've figured out if they stand really still then he won't notice them.

    Not really a nickname, but a mate used to have a dog named Papillion cos it was always trying to escape.

    Saw one on Facebook a few months back on one of those Scottish humour pages that described a guy called Wayne Bruce having the nickname "Manbat". Probably made up but still

    In the Navy, everybody had daft nicknames,

    Tall guys were shorty, or Tiny
    Short guys were lofty


    Anybody with the surname Ritchie was usually 'Mabossa' :-0

    Girl I used to work with had a very strange way of walking. She definitely did not have a disabilty as giving her a nickname wouldn't have been tolerated. She gained the nickname "broken erse"

    What about a fella called the Exorcist.
    When he visited your house, he made all your spirits disappear

    Used to have a mate that we called PF which stood for 'phantom ****'.

    Almost every time we went out he would supposedly get a phone call about 11.30 from 'some bird' who was apparently 'gagging for it'. His flatmate confirmed that on most of these ocassions he would pitch up at home less than half an hour after leaving us. He either had a few issues in the bedroom or he was at it.

    We had a Foreman formally known as The Blacksmith. One mention of work and he made a bolt for the door.

    And Campbell Baxter who was known as Two Soups.

    These were all on Off the ball last weekend! We’re you all tweeting/texting them in or is it just a coincidence?

    At my high school one of the janitors was very short, plump and balding with dark black hair around the sides. He was nicknamed "Janny De Vito" due to his resemblance of a well known Hollywood actor.
