    I knew a guy whose nickname was Two Sheds.

    He was a very big guy who said he couldn't fit into one shed.

    A well known guy in Liverpool in the eighties was Cherry Blossom, named so because he filled in the gap between his receding hairline and eyebrows with black shoe polish. Hilarious to see it running down the side of his face when it rained. Pretty sure you can find reference to him on google.

    Heard the one about a guy called Wayne Bruce who was nicknamed Man-Bat.

    Also used to enjoy the origins of Geebsie for Gordon Hunter!!

    Did you grow up in Slateford?
    I wonder if you know the two brothers from Hutchie who, back in the day, were called big cocky and wee cocky.

    Looking back, they weren't the best nicknames 🤭
