Nickname: E-Dubb, E, E-Schnitzle, E-Murda(recently aquired from a student at the art school where I teach) Basically anything that starts with “E” and ends in whatever you want. A friend called me E-Shamalamadingdong(sp?) once. That was nice.

Q5. Most Embarrassing Moment?
A5.How about recent? I’m at home in my boxers. Fresh out of the shower with a nice sheen over my tone but not overly so physique. I forget why but I’m having a good day so I’m doing my good day dance and end it with a mule kick/superman punch thingy and maybe some weird yelpy noise. I stand up and turn around. On the floor next to me is a bunched up piece of toilet paper. I ask my friend, who just witnessed all of this, “uhhh, what’s that?” His reply..”WTF dude, that just fell out of your boxers!” Ugh, yeah, pretty embarrassing. There’s only a few reasons some bunched up toilet paper might be in and around my boxer area. Won’t get into that now. So I lose. Fifteen minutes later he confessed he missed the trashcan with the tissue and made everything up. Props for quick thinking. Thing is, I actually do stash crumpled tp in my boxers. Luckily the real stash was quite secure. Like it always is. Epic Win for E-Shamalamadingdong!
