Well, because my best bud is a scottidog.

When I was first online, I called myself scottimom, but non-dog people never understand calling yourself your pet's mom (or dad as the case may be,) so I changed it to scottidog.

Ok. Here comes a long story...

WHiZZi...

When I was 12 years old, I could use a computer like no one else could. I programmed, I made websited and even ran a BBS (Bulletin Board System, sort of dial-in file sharing thing). People named me a whiz-kid, so my nickname on several BBSes was WHiZZ-KiD. I used caps except for the i because I liked that letter ;)

Anyway, after a while running my BBS (that was called WHiZZi BoarD) I started to get on internet. Also, I registered on several sites under the name WHiZZ-KiD. When I became 18 years I changed it. WHiZZ-KiD wasn't up to date and many people had that name. So, with some fantasy I called myself WHiZZi. Nowadays, almost every hit with Google on 'WHiZZi' will bring up some website I made.. I was involved in several projects on the internet and created a OS under that name (V2OS..). Anyway, that's my story... :)

This is a happy one. I didn't like the old one anymore...

I don't know where the original came from, I guess I found it somewhere on the internet :P

"The details of my screen name are quite inconsequential..." Well I got the Tele part from the Fender Telecaster *drools* possibly the greatist guitar.... ever. the Man part because of my wonderful XY chromosomes, and the 027 because well... I think you can guess. I have a bunch of other names too.

I'm trying to remember how I determined mine. When joining the Yahoo Clubs back then, I wanted an Al related SN, so I went through a mental list in my head.

DTBS is one of my fav albums and LAS is the first song on there so voila, I came up with stupidsurgeon and the 27 is mandatory.

Found it odd when I saw the pic of the Halloween show with Al perfoming LAS in his DTBS outfit. Scary little coincidence.

My screen name is based on the first 2 letters of my name and the use of the 'weird' adjective because a) i like weird al and this is a weird al forum and B) i'm pretty weird myself.
