Open Thread: A rose by any other…
Today’s Open Thread is hosted by the newly named baby elephant from Taronga Zoo:
Minister for Climate Change and the Environment, Frank Sartor, today announced that Taronga’s new elephant calf will be named Pathi Harn (pronounced ‘par tea harn’).
“The people of NSW and zoo keepers have chosen Pathi Harn – the Thai word for miracle – as the new name for Mr Shuffles,” Mr Sartor said.
The little darling has been called a miracle since his birth, as zoo vets had given up hope that he would be born alive after they ceased to detect signs of life.
Anyway, during an IRC conversation earlier today Mary noted that we really don’t have a name for our beloved commenters:
<mary> You know, geekfeminism.org doesn’t have a name for our commenters.
<mary> I mean, like Twisty‘s Blamers, or Shakesville‘s Shakers.
We figure, what the heck, why not let you name yourselves. In a similar fashion to how the adorable bundle of ubercute above was named, we’ll take ideas and poll the suggestions we like most in a future thread.
So, Open Threaders: What do you, our geekfeminist.org community, wish to be nicknamed?
