What are some of Bret's nicknames?

Postby kellysouthpaw » Sun Mar 08, 2009 5:05 pm

For instance, Jemaine's is "Snake Hips" - but I haven't heard of any such nicknames for Bret...

So I ask you all - what are some of Bret's nicknames? Whether self-imposed or one's that he's known to go by?

P.S. Don't ask why...it's a secret project 8)

FIGWIT.



Or I like to pronounce his name as BRiT, like a few of the girls did on season 1.

I want to use something that if he saw it he wouldn't lose confidence in himself/become "a little bit bulemic"/become offended/become annoyed.

I want it to be where if he saw it, he would laugh/be at least slightly amused.

this is my own personal nickname for him...only making sense to me...
but he *might* get it... Bret E. Vedder :rock: (you have to say it fast...)

if you use it, tell him it's how ardy sees him
and that i'd be happy to explain it to him... :D

Definitely saw an article once where he had "B-man" on the outside of his trailer.

:hrm: :puzzled:

Naaah, y'see, you've gotta tell me or the possibilities will be buzzing round my brain for days. Some of them might be obscene. Do you really want that responsibility?
That's the conclusion that I've come to, but...

i guess i've seen way more eddie vedder than bret...which, yes, for the most part, i have.

but the first few times i saw bret, it bugged me because i kept saying to myself, "...who does he remind me of??" not necessarily in looks, just something about him. and after i saw more and more of bret i.e., different versions of bret: stage-bret, confident-bret, acoustic-bret, concert-bret, TV/show-bret, interview-bret, uncomfortable-bret, air guitar-bret....it hit me who it was - he's channeling eddie vedder.

go ahead, ask him.
he'll deny it at first, but in the long run, he'll agree.... :wink:

edit: bret doesn't *look* like him, just some facial
expressions, some guitar playing, clothing, beard,
hair, smile....reminds me of EV.
