Without a word of exaggeration, I've just had a fitter in my house called 'Zander Fisher'.  :lol:

I maybe should have asked him if he worked on the fly.

Other names I remember was a woman called Hazel Knutt, and a guy in my student days called Phil Kettles.


Or that famous football referee,  Mr R Soul. 


SWMBO worked with Ailsa Craig and Isla White
'til a voice as bad as conscience,
rang interminable changes,
on an everlasting whisper,
day and night repeated so-
"Something hidden, go and find it,
Go and look beyond the ranges,
Something lost beyond the ranges,
Lost and waiting for you,

Clan Chief

When I  worked for British steel/Corus there were quite a few characters and nicknames that made me laugh. I actually was a friend of this chap and went to a few gigs with him back in the day. His name was/is Albert Earwaker. That name always bring up images in my head of a Dickensian character walking down a narrow Victorian street ringing a big bell and getting everyone up in the early morning to go and work in the cotton mills or whatever. A human victorian alarm clock  :lol:
Then there was Big Crasher the craneman, he got his name because he wasn't the most careful of crane drivers and was always having minor accidents then when his son started in the foundry he was christened Bumper!. A family Duo of Crasher & Bumper.

Another father & son duo was an old guy nicknamed Banger, because he was a banger [nutjob/headcase] then when his son started in the work he was named Boomer and is still known by that name to this day.

There were a few others. Once I remember some more I will post them. but I always remembered Crasher & Bumper and Banger & Boomer  :lol:


Old movie star Rip Torn :D

Best nickname I've heard was 'Prince Albert' called because his  real name was Willie Pearson  :D
