    OMG! Someone has the key to my house! And they stole my Tie-Dyed T-shift too!

    Priceless guys - Absolutely priceless. I needed a good laugh this morning! I had honestly never heard of "Buffo" keys before. And Karl, the shirt is perfect!

    I'm actually a little creeped out by the image of a muscle-bound clown with my nickname RIPPING A PHONE BOOK IN HALF!

    My nickname is short for Buffo Mounie. It's a Greek phrase, and it's vulgar as hell. First word translates to "Dumb" or "Dummy". We'll leave the second one out, as it's not really appropriate to post it here. Suffice to say that if you dig around a little on the Intarwebs, you'll figure it out and have a good laugh at my expense. Let's just leave it at that.

    There's a long story behind it, but the short version is that I used to work in a restaurant back in my high school days that was owned by a Greek family. I remembered the term (and it's translation) after hearing it shouted in the kitchen more than a few times. It was the first nickname I chose when I bought my very first modem decades ago, more on a whim than anything. But you know what they say about nicknames... They never go away.

    I never knew about the comedic opera connection, but it makes sense. Likewise, I hadn't hear of either the clown or the key company, but I'm not all that surprised...
