I have somewhere between 2-3 million nicknames. Anything from Nom to Narm to PheNomina to Nook to “Hey there, Handsome”. Most of my nicknames are derived from my last name of Nomina (there was a short period where calling me Jeffrey Dahmer became popular, thankfully people stuck with the cannibalistic murderer and never shortened it to Dom for the chef Dom Deluise – that would have been embarrassing!)
People also love to put my name into songs. LL Cool J’s “Something Like A Phenomenon” becomes “Something Like A Jeff Nomina”. The Na-Na-Na’s of Hey Jude become Nomina’s. My personal favorite – “Make ‘Em Say Ugh – Jeff Nomina!”
In grade school some kids even made a song –
“It’s Jeff Nomina -
He’s a phenomenon.
It’s Jeff Nomina -
It goes on and on and on and on…”
Rinse and repeat first verse.
You can imagine my delight when last week BloggingJason shot me an email with the new greatest nickname of all time – Omnomnomnom. For those of you who spend less than 25% of your daylight hours eating – quit judging me. Also, Omnomnomnom is the noise we fatties make while eating. It is like our personal them song (titled: Shame).
Ok – kinda funny. We laughed - though there was no knee slapping. Then he sent me this link.
Consider these knees slapped.
