So, recently someone commented to me about my screen name and asked if it referenced something from Big Brother. Later someone thought it came from Jay and Silent Bob Strikes Back, which in fairness would have been alright by me. Both assumptions were incorrect.
I'm going to explain the origin of my screen name with the hopes that some of you other fools will do the same. No shit. I'm seriously interested in this no matter how banal or silly it is.
I'll start with mine. It's rather simple really. I grew up in New Jersey and a friend of my brother used to use the phrase "fucking clownshoes" to describe any situation that he viewed as bullshit. One of his friends would say "she blew me last night" or something to that effect and he would respond by calling him and his story fucking clownshoes. I, being a 15 year old kid wishing to emulate my older sibling and his friends adopted it immediately. My friends and I shortened it to f'n clownshoes so we could get away with it in school. It stuck. When I joined this community about 20 years or so later I felt it apropos to use because after lurking for years I realized quite a number of the comments were deliberately bullshit and i'd say to myself, f'n clownshoes!
So boys and girl if you wanna explain your name, here is the forum to do so.
