Haha,, I think I found it cra koor

is this it????




short and sweet. after a night of debauchery, I awoke to the new nickname of cracker. nobody knows who started calling me cracker or why (we all have our own thoughts on this). Anyway, a few years after college was over, I was out with some friends and we met some french ladies and they decided to jump in on the nickname thing and they kept saying crakeur instead of cracker and my friends, being the childish, immature, inbreds that they are, jumped all over it.

since I couldn't locate the first part of the story, which we think to be the case, I'll give it up.

again, this is to the best of our fuzzy recollection.

A bunch of us went out to see Cyrille Neville play in some tiny bar outside of New Orleans. We were the only white guys in the joint. I wound up hitting it off with a young lady there who's friends, apparently, didn't like that she was dancing and hooking up with a white boy. At some point, they started calling me the cracker.

my friends, being the drunken morons that they are, thought this was hilarious and started calling me cracker too.

then the french girls came into play and, well, I've been crakeur for a long long while.

I KNEW it.. you left that second post 'cra koor' as sort of a clue. I searched on ATS using that word as a reference.

Thanks a lot Crakeur, that was the most fun I've ever experienced on ATS EVER.. allow me to gloat a little..

An insult from a French-speaking African American?

Thanks to the link to the Greek God Personality test - I've just been delighted to get the result of Hades. I've been skipping round the living room over that.

On topic - Berenike was the name of a minor Egyptian queen of the Ptolemaic Dynasty. The famous Queen Cleopatra Vll was the last of the line.

I just liked the name and since Berenike ruled for a very short time before she was assassinated and wasn't very famous, I don't think it's too grandiose for me.

Anything to do with the below:


McClung's "Western Adventures." All eastern and European observers
comment with horror on the border brawls, especially the eye-gouging.
Englishmen, of course, in true provincial spirit, complacently
contrasted them with their own boxing fights; Frenchmen, equally of
course, were more struck by the resemblances than the differences
between the two forms of combat. Milfort gives a very amusing account of
the "Anglo-Americains d'une espece particuliere," whom he calls
"crakeurs ou gaugeurs," (crackers or gougers). He remarks that he found
them "tous borgnes," (as a result of their pleasant fashion of
eye-gouging--a backwoods bully in speaking of another would often
threaten to "measure the length of his eye-strings,") and that he doubts
if there can exist in the world "des hommes plus mechants que ces
habitants."

I like your avatar, looks like Terry Thomas.


"Cracker" Are you really good at opening locks?

As for my username..

nerb is my nickname and stands for "bren" (backwards) and is short for Brendan, the "bot" part is all this black plastic stuff with knobs, keys and buttons that lets me communicate with you.
