A spaced out rabbit.
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.

I used the name of one of my Speedway bikes-a Jackson Rotrax.
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!
