    Wink COTH screennames you (humorously) misread

    This may be more Off Topic Day than Off Course, but considering our screennames are typically horse-related, I hope I can squeak this in and share our amusing misinterpretations of others' pseudonyms.

    Two names I constantly mispronounce in my mind as I read them:

    danceronice is "dancer on rice."

    xctrygirl is "extra cry girl." I most certainly hope not!

    And you?

    I don't mispronounce, but always chuckle over Buglet. The very first pony I ever knew was Buglet. As cute a little Welsh pony as could be. She was a mean little devil......

    Oh gosh, I forget most of them once they are out of my eye sight, but I know I'm not the only one who sees "Kateh" and reads it in my head like Cartman from South Park.

    I know we were just talking about apassionato the other day, and how we all missed asspantio.

    Asspantio has got to be the best screen-name mistake of all time. I STILL laugh every time I think of it.

    Miss having her here too. She even referred to herself as Asspantio once or twice after that.

    Danceronice -Danceronie
    Meupatdoes -new potatoes -I don't know why, but there it is.

    There are a couple more, but I can't think of them at the moment.

    ETA: My most embarrassing -from another board Mbamissaz. I've learned that it is MBA Miss (in) Arizona. Yeah-how about (phonetically) Embassinahz. I don't know why, but there it is!

    Maybe it's telling of my age (even if I'm not even 40! for the next two months at least), but when I first glanced at that name, I saw "Menopause."

    Tuba fits. Trub is a little on the round side right now.

    It is. Which is the horse's name and he pretty much always gets called Trub.

    Lol, this is the one I ALWAYS misread! Usually as something involving potatoes.

    I think the first place I used this user name (I have a LOT in various places, some of which are so old they don't really apply but it's years too late to change them) didn't allow underscores, so instead of dancer_on_ice I had to run it all together, which does lead people to read it strangely sometimes. As with most of my others it's just not worth trying to change at this stage.

    I've been Katarine here for ages. And still I get referenced as Katrina, Katherine, Katherine, Katarina. They don't misread, they just don't care enough TO read it doesn't bug me, but it is amusing to get 'called out' by someone who couldn't bother to address me by my 'name'
