For instance, Jemaine's is "Snake Hips" - but I haven't heard of any such nicknames for Bret...

So I ask you all - what are some of Bret's nicknames? Whether self-imposed or one's that he's known to go by?

P.S. Don't ask why...it's a secret project 8)

FIGWIT.



Or I like to pronounce his name as BRiT, like a few of the girls did on season 1.

I want to use something that if he saw it he wouldn't lose confidence in himself/become "a little bit bulemic"/become offended/become annoyed.

I want it to be where if he saw it, he would laugh/be at least slightly amused.

this is my own personal nickname for him...only making sense to me...
but he *might* get it... Bret E. Vedder :rock: (you have to say it fast...)

if you use it, tell him it's how ardy sees him
and that i'd be happy to explain it to him... :D

Definitely saw an article once where he had "B-man" on the outside of his trailer.

:hrm: :puzzled:

Naaah, y'see, you've gotta tell me or the possibilities will be buzzing round my brain for days. Some of them might be obscene. Do you really want that responsibility?

i guess i've seen way more eddie vedder than bret...which, yes, for the most part, i have.

but the first few times i saw bret, it bugged me because i kept saying to myself, "...who does he remind me of??" not necessarily in looks, just something about him. and after i saw more and more of bret i.e., different versions of bret: stage-bret, confident-bret, acoustic-bret, concert-bret, TV/show-bret, interview-bret, uncomfortable-bret, air guitar-bret....it hit me who it was - he's channeling eddie vedder.

go ahead, ask him.
he'll deny it at first, but in the long run, he'll agree.... :wink:
