I'm a stickler for capitalizing things, but I've somehow always stylized my usernames in all lowercase. I just like how it looks.Had to think of an AIM username as a whatever-year-old and came up with the idea of being a Spud Monkey. Spudmonkey was already taken by a guy who also had the name JelloStaircase (which I love), so I was Spudmonkey777 for a while. Then someone I angered in a Gundam RP chat (I think) decided to hack my account, so I had to change it and wanted to keep the theme. I wanted to go with TaterApe, but the family vetoed that for obvious reasons, and I went with taterchimp afterwards. I never capitalized it when filling in forms and stuff, so I decided it should always be lowercase.
I always figured it was a Japanese sharkI just wanted my name to reflect one of my favorite viceo games. If ya'll are curious and aren't familiar with Mega Man Legends just google Sharukurusu and you'll see one of the most frustrating enemies in that game (yet I always thought it was a cool robot design, which is why I picked it).
