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.

Take my advice, I'm not using it.
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
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"
