The origins of ‘LordBeariOfBow’

For those of you that are curious as to the origin of “Lordbeariofbow‘ let me assure you that it is just a fun name and how it all started.

I have had an English (Mark) chum on line since I first discovered the horrors of the Internet, naturally we met in one of those silly game rooms where you have a “nic” (nickname) nom de plume call it what you like.  Mark went under the pseudonym of ‘Cuddlybuggs’ (with 2 g’s) where he came up with that one God only knows. I went under the name of beari417 and I know where this came from.

The b and e are my first two initials and as I was born under the sign of Aries I took the ari then added the 417, the 4 for April and the 17 the day. I think perhaps the ‘Cuddly’  bit came from the fact that Mark was somewhat rotund. He did enjoy a beer or two…..

Now he is very slim he hasn’t had a drink in some time, if you ask him how long he will tell you exactly how many years months weeks days and hours since he last took a drink. I’m pleased to say though that Mark doesn’t miss the drink.

Mark like many others had discovered a way of, for want of a better word. cheating in the game room. Unlike many others though he got caught and as a result he got the bullet; not only that he lost his identity; ‘Cuddlybuggs’   was no more 😦

Not to be outdone Mark resurrected ‘Cuddlybuggs’ by elevating him to a knighthood and henceforth he was known as ‘SirCuddlybuggs’.

Being what I considered the superior of the two I decided that an elevation to a knighthood would not do! Ennoblement, nothing less was called for; having regard to my humble beginnings as a Londoner born within the sound of Bow Bells.

Henceforth I became  ‘LordBeariOfBow’ , and I haven’t touched a drop since yesterday. 😀

    1. Glad someone does. I thought it was rather good when I wrote it and still do. Just a pity no one else does 😥
      You obviously like and appreciate the English sense of humour. I thought this post was worthy of Bernard in “Yes Minister” 😀

      1. Yes, it is worthy of that funny programme.

        It’s funny…this evening I’m rewatching BBC’s “The Office.” I still worked in a corporate cubicle farm when it came out, and I loved it. Spot on. It also means a lot because I was in Britain for this series.

        Anyway, your wit could certainly drive a comedy programme. I could see you doing well with “Only Fools and Horses” as well.

        1. My daughter Sarah was living and working in England at that time too, and became addicted to ‘The Office’; I see that the US now has a version,I imagine it is quite lacking in humour as I know it. The US humour is too obvious, there is nothing subtle or understated in it, the Americans seem to enjoy that though for reasons unknown.
