A friend of our cousin was planning to go to Australia in 2010 for 6 months. He flew over, got home sick and was back after a few weeks. They christened him Boomerang.

I know of a lad in the sticks whose surname is Malone. I'm not sure of his first name, but everyone calls him "Ho". Thought it was gas when I heard it.

Worked with a man called "Stone faced", always had a stern look about him. his son

started in the job, had a touch of acne, so was christened "Pebble Dash".

Another bloke was called "Sheeps head" because he had really short curly hair.

Manager was know as "matt the rat" for obvious reasons, one of the charge hands

was called "The wankey bull", never found out why.

Had a teacher who always had bananas in his bag, rumours got around it was because of a medical condition. He was called Banana Wario because he also looked like Wario.

Himself I sometimes call Burger because you can easily turn his last name into it. Needless to say he hates it.
