The best college nickname I ever gave was t a guy that lived on my dorm floor frosh year. Read Hall, curry 5 at indiana university. His name was Wayne Bruns and was from some shit hole small town in indiana.
He was memorable in a couple ways;
He had such an accent that you could hardly understand him. He pronounced his name like "wang". Soon after (after as in time but also as in after multiple adult intoxicants) I named his "chicken wang" which we then shortened to "chicken" or "the chicken."
He flunked out of school after his second or thir semester. It could have been his terrible class picking. I remember he was taking a language class in Tagalog.
His roommate flunked out after his first semester and never got replaced so he had a room all to himself. He never locked his door and didn't mind if we just walked in and smoke in his room. We even moved a Nintendo 64 into his room for our enjoyment
It was ideal because he was never there. He had a student job and was always so tired. If he was sleeping we'd just walk in and smoke and play video games while trying to keep it quiet. I was a huge dick and am only now thinking about if someone did that to me...how quickly I'd end that behavior.
I'll never remember if I had too many adult intoxicants or if I dreamt it, but I think we drunk dialed his family's house my soph year ( this was 2000 nobody had mobile phones) and an older sounding woman picked up. When we asked to speak to chicken, I mean Wayne, she said that he had died in a car accident. I wish I could remember if that was true or not.
