This is a question Worst Nicknames Ever

Everyone wants a cool nickname like "Ace", "Boss", or "Iron". Kids being kids, that's not what we get - the kid with polio gets called Johnny Spazm, your Ginger Fuhrer was called Rob Man-you-smell and your question master was "Tommy" Trinder despite him being dead for years.

Tell us the worst you've heard and the stories behind them.

My surname is Marks. My dad and I share the same nickname - Skids. This has since been applied to various things - my old car was known as the Skidmobile, and every time I do something cool or unusual it's regarded as "Skidtastic".

It could be worse I suppose - my previous nickname was Monkeyboy, since I used to climb everything.

I also have a mate called Dave who, when riding home from the pub on his bike, crashed straight into the back of a skip - and ended up in the skip.
He has henceforth been known as Skippy, or "Bush Kangaroo" - the latter has stuck more recently since he went on holiday to Australia.

His brother Chris is about 6 foot, very thin, and stammers over several words in every sentence, making him difficult to understand.
He therefore gets referred to as Boomhauer (the guy from King of the Hill).

Can't think of any more right now.
