    Shouldn't that have read "You were employed in the Post Office"? #


    TOL

    Err sorry TOL, I stand corrected mate. Our favourite saying was "work's for the unemployed and we've got a job"

    Re: has anyone asked where your handle comes from

    As I have been fishing down the Jumpinpin since 1968, I thought something along the lines of the Pin would do...but then I thought it need some more "pizzazz"..so bugger it..why not Pin Head....seeing as how 'head' is used to describe someone is a fanatic on something..so there it is...oh, ok then...I have a long narrow head also if that is what you want to think.

    Re: has anyone asked where your handle comes from

    Started on this site as “Commodore” That was the name the boys gave me from the Condamine Crusaders, bunch of fellas who do a once a year bush thing . Then came along “The Commodore” (got a bit confusing) and cause at the time I was fishing a lot with Cheech…it had to be Chong…..
    I’ll let Cheech explain how he became Cheech.
    And it’s not what you think
    We only like a Bundy or 6

    I figured it was because after you done some work you presented your customers with a big bill

    Only kidding mate, you looked after me on the price.

    Good luck,

    Sorry Dasher,

    Just couldn't help myself. Before I retired, I used to work in the Forestry Dept and the DPI. Sorry, meant to say I was employed there.

    Mr Wong #
    Well I was Tuckerman...... #that dissapeared over time when I was offline for a while, then I was SharkBait, only to find I was a ring in and the real sharkbait (with lots of posts) kept the name and #I became MrWong.
    Why.... some late at night camp fire communication between myslef and Lew (pegusus off Ausfish) ending up in conversations in funny accents about "special fried rice" dim sims and numerous other weird and wacky concoctions. My kids me and my dog found it so funny that #it has stuck. Everywhere we go we look for another version of the wong chinese resteraunt chain:
    OK i WONG'S in Geeelong ( or Geewong)
    Phone Wongs in Strathpine
    Suzie Wongs in Enoggera
    The cousins the Wons resteraunt in #Wawrick and believe in or not MrWongs in Chermside area. Theres also a boat I have seen fishing at Curtain called The Wongaling!

    Any who for those who think its a cwazy nickname maybe your right, maybe I got it all wong!
    Oh and i am caucasian ....... am not racist #probably just someone with a sense off humour! cheers to all!

    Re: has anyone asked where your handle comes from

    This is a really good post Choppa. My handle is the brand name I gave a very successful lure that I developed and made since the early nineties, the previous lure I made was a Bass Baga but the newer one blitzed it. The Blitz Baga (now manufactured by Smak) is known to many bass fisho's in SEQ.

    Cheers

    I'm not sure if it's still there, but the food court at Toowong shopping village used to have the wonderfully titled "The Two Wongs". Like I say, it might not be there now, so I could be WONG

    Good luck,
