My dad's nicknames for people and things

My dad has a fantastic ability to give people nicknames that stuck. And to coin alternate words for things.

Drums .. "da blams" His son Shannon.... "Bones da stickman" - tissue -- "hornblowers" - slippers -- "slinkers" - peanut butter -- "peenter bunter" - my uncle Michael -- "Ralphie" - my aunt Joanne -- "Dodo" - my mom -- "Choofie" and "Magenta" - me -- "Weezer" and sometimes, "Botch" - the latter because the sound made me laugh as a baby
