|Naps are rad

The Internet wasn't working too well, so I took a huge long nap.
Then I ate pizza, and drank Coke, and then I went here...
I named the dolphin "Slippy". Everybody needs to go to that address and go submit "Slippy" as the name, then maybe with 100 submissions the MySQL people will name it Slippy, which is actually the dolphin's True Name, according to me.
Oh, and to the MySQL people: damn the HTTP Referer header! :-)

Heh... no referer statistics from me. I always send the URL of whatever I'm requesting as the referer, because sites like GeoCities started doing dumb things with the contents of that header. If sites hadn't abused it, I wouldn't have to fake it... dumb arseholes.
Uuuh... accidental rant. Heh.
I just gotcha like 4 votes. Here's an excerpt.
Bobtoad GG: The connotation of Slippy is both friendly and carefree. When thinking of dolphins, it is according to this concept that I visualize them: playing with children, chasing boats, etc. Not to mention the subtle irony in Slippy which denotes the water habitat of dolphins. Both aquatic and mystical, they are too elusive to be fully and understood and fill the name Slippy elegantly.
Nice, but I went for the more, um, non-sensical, incoherent reason:
"The Earth has a skin and that skin has diseases, one of those diseases is man."
-- Friedrich Nietzsche
Hey, it has nothing to do with the name Slippy, but it will probably add to the "What the hell?" factor after seeing a couple of other Slippy entries before this one.
Dude, I just put "'Cause Brad of LiveJournal said so." Isn't that a good enough reason all by itself? ;) I thought so.

I'm sawy. (hangs head)
I do hope that was a sarcastic message... but if it wasn't, I really am sorry. Blame it on ASU - they don't have a very good faculty there.
don't leave me here with the internet sucking!!!!!!!!!!
Here is my submission
The imperialistic armies raid the camps of the terrorist under a moonless sky protected by a thick cover of clouds. As they attack they chant "slippy slippy slippy, all hale slippy."

that damn Slippy!
"because dolphins are slipp(er)y creatures. You never know when a dolphin is gonna swim along beside you and stab you in the back with an ice pick. Dolphins are misunderstood creatures."
