Laddie’s takin’ names and kickin’ ass

I’M not really one for naming anything that breathes at night, but it’ll do this time.

Yes, I know that sentence is ambiguous, — it’s NAMING things at night, not things that BREATHE at night, thankyouverymuch.

It’s English, c’mon.



First, I’m clearly winning some nice money because ‘they’ couldn’t see laddie has Vader eyes.

Well, Vader sockets and eyebrows.

Lord Vader’s goggles, non-reflective

“I find your lack of Force disturbing…”

Laddie’s goggles

Notice it’s the trailing part that resembles

“I find your reventilated Farts inside your suit disturbingly fail…”



Second, I’m winning some serious money on the names front, peeps.

Here’s the betting options I made as early as 3 July 2015:—

(Yes, that’s the correct ‘spelling’ for the sound of whistling. So now you know.)

Laddie is now…

  1. Try Yoda. I tried to name my kid Yoda and got over-ruled. Been trying to name every one’s kid Yoda since then.
