Writer's Block: Your Username

Why did you choose your user name? Is there any special meaning or story behind it?

I chose "Fredcritter" because … well … starting back around 1970 and pretty much from then on, my friends Ken Fletcher and Reed Waller have been including me in cartoons using a caricature looking more or less like the one I use for my standard user pic here (with minor changes over the years depending on the length and color of my hair and beard). And … you know … what can you call the person so depicted other than Da Fredcritter?

Btw, they look just exactly like me. I guess that's the sign of great cartoonists… (I'll have to collar KF one of these days and have him do a current version for iconizing here on the old LJ.)
