"Why do they call you Butterman?"Listening To:
Here's the true story; the the early/mid 90s the Montreal duo Ze Zinjanthropes Brachucephales Ft'Gh! recruited me to play bass for them, mainly for their live performances, but we also recorded their second CD as a trio. Since both the dudes already had their Ft'gh! names secured (CHeapie Jimi Wistaff and Majiik Oly Loopy) and they didn't want me to choose my own Ft'gh! name, they came up with this one: Reverend Buttersnatch McWick, The Turd. Since this name wasn't easily pronounced by everyone, and due to its obviously politically incorrect undertones, my good buddy Spike (the Motiv-a-tor) actually decided he would refer to me as The Butterman. The Ft'gh! guys didn't like this compressed/condensed version of the name they made up for me so they refused to call me Butterman, refering to me as Buttersnatch. But I didn't last very long within the Ft'gh! ensemble; as soon as the 2nd CD came out, I unofficially left the combo. However the name Butterman stuck, and my friends have been refering to me as Butterman since then. There have been variations over the years, such as the shorter Butter, and the longer spanish version El Hombre De Mantequila. Whichever way you want to use it, I am still the Butterman!
"And what about the Papi title?"
My wife's girlfriend and I always try to out-gross and shoch each other. Couple years ago she discovered that the modern popular term "Daddy" as in "Who's Your Daddy" somewhat grossed me out. So for a couple of weeks she's call me Pimp Daddy or something in that vein, until we saw the premiere episode of the TV show "Nip/Tuck". In a scene, the character played by JUlian McMahon brings the son of his co-worker to a strip club, where a latina performer approaches them and say "Hey Papi!". I was doomed from that exact moment on; since then she (my wife's girlfriend) has kept refering to me as Papi.
