Skippy = Jerry Irvine.
Due to his name causing wide spread anger and hostility it has been changed to Skippy because it just sounds so happy. :-)
Many names were considered with mixed reviews.
The made for rental movie will be out later this summer. We are still working on the title. A few we are batting around:
"Man without a Motor"
"Dude!, Where's my Cert?"
"The Passion of the Jerry"
"Skippy Come Home"
"Sit Down and Shut up!"
"Lord of the Illegal Motor Shipping Ring" Part I
We are thinking about a (2) DVD set bundled with the Flim Flam Man.

While loathing to add to this thread or the whole poisonous atmosphere on r.m.r. these days, I have to say I'm amazed that it took this many years for JI to grow a nickname. Weird.

I don't remember where that came from--didn't you make that one? Nicknames have to be earned and appointed by a third party like in Animal House. "Your Delta Kappa Phi name is...Pinto"

Absolutely. It's not really a nickname if you gave it to yourself. The key point is *others* giving it to you, by the silliest means possible.
For instance, there's how this guy I work with got nicknamed "Vinnie". His real name is Frank. But, during a conversation I was having with with another cow-orker (who is of Russian extraction, and has the accent to prove it), I asked where a third cow-orker was, and he replied "Venice Beach", in a suitable accent. Since Frank was the fellow for whom I was looking's manager, the nickname "Vinnie" stuck....
