Naming of the egg

In response to a few of my posts in various threads, it has been brought to my attention that it is odd that I have a name for my egg, Scotty.  Additionally, it has been the source of confusion for a few, so here it is:  I am the only one who has named their egg?

    I wouldn't be surprised if many have named it "my half'.

    One spends so much time on this forum and "wastes" money on "stupid egg toys", that their wife asks for a divorce. They say "fine, but can I keep my half?"

    Oops, I forgot this line: I call mine Wadsworth

  • I call mine my best friend sometimes :D
    Boom

  • I was talking to a buddy the other day and did say my Egg was prolly my favorite possession. My Yeti, my Wrangler, my custom corn hole boards, and my boat rounded out top 5. My bow barely missed the cut.
    Boom

  • No name but my wife has called it my grillfriend.

  • I haven't named mine but I've heard the wife call it a few.  I'd post them but this is a family site.  Funny how she stops calling it names when she can smell what's cookin.

    My brother actually gave me a BMF wallet for Christmas one year.  I felt like a mushroom cloud layin' muthah f*ckkuh.  And I'd get disdainful looks from grandmas working the checkout counter.

  • My 3 year old named our XL "Freddy" when she saw it. No clue why. It stuck, and has been referred to thusly since.

    I tired of it.  Trolls are (yawn) tiresome.  Troll gifs, on the other hand, are hilarious.

    I'd say the Christmas one does kinda get me ito the mood of the upcoming season, but the spanking one has SOOOOOOO many possibilities!  I dunno.  The junior troll pulling out the seat is a scream!  I can't pick a favorite.  These are hilarious!!  Go trolls, go!!

    My secret Indian name is "Big Green Egg".  At least that's what I told my friend's 4 year old daughter when she asked.
