Hey, Redeagl (and any other interested Forum members), I need a good name for the comedian delivering this classic routine. As originally written, I used my own moniker, but the talented, albeit quite profane, performer deserves an Eärwan name.

The only defining characteristic I've given my comedian is that he's not a rustic and not a Northerner. Maybe a Nansurian Empire subject? If so, I've got a possible name in my back pocket. Regardless....... I am starting a......

*** CONTEST!!! ***


Yes, I'm putting out an OPEN CALL for submissions to "Name That Comic!". If a winner emerges, the prize will be an evening of unlimited Paper Planes! Unfortunately, you must either travel to St. Louis to collect, or corral me at a future TSA meet-up. But the offer is good. If you don't like Paper Planes.....perhaps a substitute can be conjured up. The tap water in St. Louis is particularly good.

GOOD LUCK!!!

Zöreius Öenghûs. Anasûrimbor Ikurei. Morngarüs  Bellhus.
I am horrible at naming.

The first name is crazy, and you know I like crazy, Red. An Anasürimbor comic? Unlikely. The third name.....also a possible hit. Keep 'em coming. You'll get there. With your affinity for puns, it's only a matter of time.

Here's a secondary consideration: He has to have a name that shortens to a one- or two-syllable nickname. Like "Beard" or "Akka" or "Zin". (God, I miss that guy.... :'() So, Zöreius could shorten to "Zory! Zory!". That is an early contender, Red.

I'm really digging Zöreius Öenghûs. Might be a short contest....

Hey, maybe RSB will steal Zöreius for the final TSA series! That would be outstanding!

I like the name Zöreius Öenghûs so much that I'm thinking of changing MY name to that. My REAL WORLD name.....

You could be a survivor of the first holy war so folk calll you "Veteran"
.
In fact you could be the guy that shouts out "nay i'm an asshole"as a reply to "are you a heathen" when the Holy war is crossing the Sempsis, causing everyone to laugh.

I think my comic could possibly be that guy! Have to mull that over.....he might be the type of "Veteran" that never seemed to be near the action.

So is it official?  Holy Veteran Zöreius Öenghûs the Comic.

I will keep submissions open until one week from today. Deadline is 10:00pm GMT, Friday, May 5, 2017. Cinco de Mayo!

But you are the leader in the clubhouse, Redeagl. Zöreius, aka "Z. O.", aka "Zory", aka "The Big O", will be VERY hard to beat.

Sounds like Zoro. Will he wear a black hat?
One of the other conditions of possibility.

Or the guy who shouts "dinner time" and causes the ranks to disolve in TGO when the Great Ordeal bum rush the horde.

No, Merch, unfortunately, I've written the routine from the perspective of a comedian who is NOT part of the Great Ordeal.  The "dinner time" guy has a post-war career in front of him, should he survive.

Wilshire, I honestly haven't thought about "Zorro's" stage attire. But you may have nailed the nickname, should Zöreius win this lunatic contest.
