Two of my flatmates contracted crabs when we all lived together in college. They had to tell everyone else in the house, in case it had spread. To this day, the two of them are called Itchy and Scratchy.

Knew a kid called Study because one day he said he had to go in to study. One comment - tagged for the rest of his childhood.

There was a teacher in the school I went to known as Indicator because he had a facial tic.

Square Head. For obvious reasons.

Once knew a guy nicknamed Magic because he was always off his face.

Wagon Wheel.

This was back when a Wagon Wheel was the crème de la crème of lunchtime snacks, not a dodgy country song.

Just remembered an old colleague I had called "The Hamster". He used to eat in his cubicle, and had an unfortunate way of eating, which involved stuffing as much of his lunch into his mouth as would fit, and chewing it so that his cheeks puffed up.

My brother Rory is called Ropey at home, because he's long and lanky. He was a horny bastard before he got married, so was called Rapey by his mates. No such thing as PC in rural Ireland.

A teacher in my school wore glasses and the lens were shaped a little bit like a 50p piece..

So he was nicknamed Quid.

Woodwork teacher in school was called Popeye, after his glass eye fell out in class one day. Bounced all the way down the class.
