I don't remember now, some rip from Seinfeld about puffy blouses. If I wanted a nickname based on my fasion choices, it certaintly wouldnt be puffy-shirt related. If I could pick my own fasion-related pirate name, I would want to call myself Plaid Beard.

Absent-minded Secretary said...

Plaid Beard? Hmmm. I wonder what I can read into that. ;)
