    Nice thread, though, I had forgotten gems like Bristle Steelpanties and Whiskers von Thorbugger.

    I disagree. Men are a lot more likely to brag about the size of their trouser titan than their posteriors.

    True, but "Im XXXing my Trouser Titan off!" isn't a preexisting saying.

    Well, OK, if you want to get into detail it's not EXACTLY the Trouser Titan but another part of the anatomy close to and connected to it. And yes, I've "froze my XXXX off" before, and have also heard people use that same saying.

    I am pretty convinced that he is talking about his sack of nuts, the orbs at the base of his tower, those that may hang low and might also wobble to and fro, which he may be able to tie in either a knot or a bow, which may give him a funny feeling should they hit upon the ceiling, and reiterate may hang low.

    To be clear I mean his danglies.

    Hey, -I- was trying to keep it PG. But yes, I do believe that is the part of Belkar's anatomy he is talking about.

    So is "freezing my [testicles] off". Referencing their size doesn't make that much sense to me, but it's relatively common.

    The younger of my beloved daughters suggests "the blond guy" (Elan) and "the chick" (Haley) from p. 69 of OtOoPCs.

    For completeness, I should also point out "a man with a REAL class" (Belkar) from p. 62 of OtOoPCs.

    "Bitterleaf" is just Belkar's surname. It's probably a typo.

    I'm on the fence myself. Since there are other things on the list I personally can't say why they should be included while this isn't, I will go ahead and add it. If there are other forumites that think it shouldn't be here, I will most likely remove it (as long as there isn't more support to keep it).

    If you are going to include 'beast with two backs' you may as well included 'beloved character' since both arrive with sarcastic tone appended.

    I think leaving out the first stupid is fine, though I wouldn't oppose including it either. I do however think 'Stupid Vampire" should be excluded on the basis that it is not a nickname but rather a simple insult. he is calling the vampire stupid.

    Yeah, his exact phrasing is "Stupid vampire", not both capitalized, which makes it sound like it's just an insult.

    I'm not sure those should be counted either. They seem more like generic insults than things like "Lurky Corpsewhiskers" or "Captain Wallow-Pants".

    I guess it's a fine line, though.

    Calling a vampire a vampire and a horse a horse is vastly different than calling a non-cow a cow. One is simply naming the thing you are talking about, the other is a nickname.

    Does calling Bloodfeast Big Guy count? Or the guards a "Guard buffet"?

    Also, why isn't Miko's Paladin-turned-murderer also there for 419?
