    Time for the nickname the barber to be retired?

    In favor of "the phoenix"?

    The Phoenix (thanks Bobke) will definitely be the right one if he can return to anything like his present form after the hip replacement surgery.
    The search for inner peace continues...

    I've just been calling him Flandis. It's concise, catchy, and fun to say.

    Flandis rules.

    How did he get the nickname the barber, anyway?

    Was it because of:



    Or because it was a Nirvana song?

    Floyd the Barber by Nirvana


    I don't particulary like the barber or the phoenix. I am partial to Kid Floyd.

    Like it, or the Mennonite Maniac. It's so Outphlandish. I don't think he's actually still a Mennonite, though.

    He's living in Temecula for ****s sake.

    I love how the mainstream media always refers to him as either Amish or Mennonite.
