Hi. I'm Stinky The Clown

Last edited Tue May 22, 2012, 02:33 PM - Edit history (1)

I am actually neither. The name came from a story posted by another DUer, many years ago. When I first joined DU, in 2004, I was Husb2Sparkly. That soon got abbreviated to H2S. H2S is also the chemical symbol for hydrogen sulphide, the stinky stuff in eggs, farts, sewage, etc. This poster's husband, a chemical engineer, would see her typing a reply to "H2S" and would always laugh.

Sparkly and I thought it was pretty funny, too.

I real life, I tend be kind of silly and laugh a lot. I'm a happy guy. Sparkly likes to say I am a clown.

That obviously sort of grew into Stinky The Clown. In the only name change amnesty on DU, I made the change.

And here I am.

Stinky The Clown. (And now a host of this forum.)

Edited to add this picture of our three and the kid next door. Our three are the German Shepherd, the Border Collie, and the Shih-Tzu. The 120 lb Lab is the kid next door who likes to go for a walk with ours.

4. Somehow, I didn't know that you were H2S :)

I knew you had "disappeared", but not to where you went.

Very nice to see you again!!

9. Hey, buddy!

Our Border Collie is a tri-color, too. You can tell she's got a merle pappaw somewhere: she has one brown eye and one blue.

Love to the furkids!

10. Heh! We love the gold rings around her eyes.

They give them definition from her black face and make the eyes more "wise" and "knowing".

Of course, like all BCs, she *is* wise and knowing.

11. If she's BC through and through

she's probably a bit of a smartass. Perfect for me because I resemble that remark

17. Hi Stinky!

So that's how you came up with your name. I always wondered about that. Love the dogs! The Shih-Tzu is darling! I love the hair on top of the head, almost looks like Alfalfa lol That lab is huge, I don't think I've ever seen one that big.

18. The lab is absolutely massive

Our GSD is a little taller, but the lab is broad and stout. When he comes running toward you he's scary. Its like a freight train bearing down on you.
