    A question I've often thought about.
    I'm a cameraman, its similar to an email address and I couldn't think of anything else at the time.

    I had a wooden boat at the time, called Tommy.

    ...and I usually talk complete rubbish.

    Gorf comes from the fact that I had a boss with big bulgy eyes, but rather than call him frog we called him gorf. Then many years later I did an Open University degree with an Object-oriented programming module where we manipliated lots of frogs. There is a whole subculture in the OU from M206 students and frogs (although we write it as phrog).

    I now use Gorf on a number of internet forums.

    Didn't quite work out like that
    Same for me. I always thought you were a perv and proud about it. Glad to hear you're not. Or at least that it is not the reason for your username, even if you are. A perv, that is.

    I had my name before I had a boat. My surname is Snook, peeps call me many names, but Snooks is the one the nice people call me.

    Besides there is something a little odd about a man with a tash introducing himself as Talulah when you meet for the first time!
