Good Omens Question #7 ~ Bikers of the Repocalypse

Unread postby DeppInTheHeartOfTexas » Sun Aug 13, 2006 10:10 am

Pg. 256-259 (paperback) 259-262 (hardback). The four mortal bikers have joined up with the Four “Bikers” of the Apocalyspe, War, Famine, Pollution and Death, and they are discussing what their new names should be. They come up with choices like “Grievous Bodily Harm”, “Embarrassing Personal Problems”, “Cruelty to Animals’ and "Things Not Working Properly Even After You’ve Given Them A Good Thumping”. Here is your chance...pick your Biker of the Repocalypse name! Have fun! :motorcycle:

Wow! What a ride!

In the spirit of Johnny Wilmot, my name is:


Always Going Too Far

Little League Coaches Who are Obsessed with Winning :grr:

So I am now Little League Coaches Who are Obsessed with Winning, Formerly Known as Always Going Too Far.

In keeping with my mantra of CRS (Can't Remember S***) and my inability to keep up with my house/work/family, I think I'll name myself....(OK, I know we are supposed to be naming things we don't like about other/the world in general...but, I'd rather rag on myself)


......One DVD Short of a Criterion Collection.....
......(in case you don't get that, you know that saying when people aren't all there...that they are "One french fry short of a happy meal?", well, it's like that)....

or

...If I only Had Another Day, I Could Get it Done (Get R Done)[/i]

:biglaugh:

My first name was a rag on myself, Charlene. I think either works, and yours are pretty funny, but I think we should be easier on ourselves. I think a new name for me should be:

Be Easier on Self Because Life is Short
