I don't think it's at all accurate. But it took ages before I stopped misreading it

I chose my name on the first forum I was a part of (think it was the BBC message boards) about 8 or 9 years ago, and I've taken it to every forum I've been a part of since.

As someone on another forum said of me: does what it says on the tin.

Staying with family in Spain, the youngest girl found a dessicated mouse, whereupon I said it had no "mouse juice" left. She then waved it in my face shouting "no mouse juice". I was then presented with a picture of a dead mouse with the caption "No mous joos"
It sort of stuck after that

I'm told that I was called Matt the Rat as a toddler.

It is quite funny when I phone and give my name... "who?", "Matt the Rat", "Oh, hello Matt!"

I've been Matt the Rat on all the forums I've inhabited (quite a few), and many years ago, it was also my 'handle' on the CB.

I once had a postcard sent from New Zealand, to "Matt the Rat, Swimbridge, Devon". It arrived safely in no more time than if it had been properly addressed!! I've even had cheques payable to 'Matt the Rat'.

Wasn't there a fishmonger who changed his name by deed poll to "whatever the fish" ?

During lambing one year, my son had some friends over to stay.
One of them saw me emerging from the lambing barn and asked if I was his dad. "No", he replied, "that's just some old bloke who lives in the sheep shed". This became a running joke and the name of "sheep shed man" sort of stuck.

I was born and brought up in the Bahamas. The large 'traditionally built' ladies were always referred to as BahamaMamas.

I am neither dark skinned or large but it reminds me of my (happy) past.
