You Named My Phone Benedict Cumberbatch

bcSo thanks for that. Now I have to type nineteen characters every time I refer to my phone. Dicks.

There were some “Other” creative offerings as well such as:

  • Elvis
  • Yoda
  • Preachy Capt. Kirk (PMAO)
  • Surly Chewbacca (BrainRants)
  • Aunt Edith who always correct me (SNB)
  • Trent “Buckeye” Lewin (I wonder who?)

Since you all think you are so clever (that includes you, J-Trask), I am inviting you to join the latest creative endeavor called FUNNY BLOG FRIDAY on October 31, 2014. Clink the link for more information.

And don’t think you got out of this, Archon and Kayjai. I see you guys hiding behind that moose. Four more funny Canadians is just what this Blog Hop needs. Canada does as well, I think. ❤

  1. I happen to ADORE Mr. Benedict, so it’s a perfect name. Sigh.

    • Yes, he is tasty in a Guy Pearce, Tom Hiddleston sort of way. 😉

    • oh wait… look who is still floating around…

      October 25, 2014 at 10:14 am

      • Envy me. I’m special.

        October 25, 2014 at 10:51 am

      • Silly Art, I don’t float, I transcend….! Lol

        October 25, 2014 at 11:16 am

        • Oh… is that what the kids are calling it these days?

          October 25, 2014 at 11:19 am

        • And did you see the little video I made of me kissing myself???

          October 25, 2014 at 11:32 am

          • Yes. I am sufficiently traumatized. 🙂

            October 25, 2014 at 12:30 pm

            • oh wait… I was trying to lure Ginger back over to my blog… sorry…

              October 25, 2014 at 12:37 pm

              • Ah…for that you need to lurk around Twitter. She’s the reigning Queen. 🙂

                October 25, 2014 at 12:39 pm

                • Not anymore, I’m not!
                  I have a new account that’s locked down tighter than a an alter boys robe!

                  October 25, 2014 at 1:00 pm

                • I do do that

                  October 25, 2014 at 1:05 pm

              • I’m sorry, Artie, I have been a terrible blogging fwend!

                October 25, 2014 at 12:58 pm

                • well you just need to look at the one post I did… should take about 4 seconds…

                  October 25, 2014 at 1:06 pm

  2. Holy long name to type, yes. You could have just gone with, ‘twatwaffle.’

    October 25, 2014 at 9:07 am

    • I have no idea what that is. I’d ask the Google, but I’m afraid of what I’d find.

      October 25, 2014 at 9:09 am

      • What about fuckwhistle?

        October 25, 2014 at 12:30 pm

        • Where do you come up with this stuff? You ought to make some kind of dictionary and post your vernacular on your blog. Just sayin’.

          October 25, 2014 at 12:32 pm

          • I’m actually doing that, you know.

            October 25, 2014 at 12:36 pm

            • The shit you say.

              October 25, 2014 at 12:38 pm

              • I know, right?

                October 25, 2014 at 12:42 pm

  3. I didn’t know, until I saw Trent’s suggestion, that we could nominate ourselves… dude… we all need a phone with my personality… I should be the new Siri…

    October 25, 2014 at 10:23 am

    • That’s a great idea! We should make a Blogger Siri!

      I upgraded my blog so that I can post audio, so if you are able to record your voice speaking a Siri like response I can post it here.

      Since you are a West Coaster do you sound all dude-like, sort of like a surfer? That would be an awesome Siri voice. I’d ask BrainRants to do it since he’s a Californian too but he sounds like an angry cowboy, very much like Sam Elliott, so surfer dude isn’t right for him. I sound like a little girl with a head cold so there’s no point in including me.

      October 25, 2014 at 10:50 am

      • Uh… you know I am technology challenged… I need to be talked through things

        October 25, 2014 at 10:52 am

        • Crap. So am I. I’ll put my kid on it.

          I have no idea what to do with a Blogger Siri, but this sounds like too much fun to pass up, especially if you are included!

          October 25, 2014 at 10:55 am

          • We ought to be able to come up with something…

            October 25, 2014 at 11:16 am

  4. I guess I have to get on board with the latest trends. I had no idea people named their cell phones. What was your iPod called? Brent? Or did you have a Walkman back in the day named Miss Manners? Are tattoos named as well? Speaking about the Cult of Personality, Benedict Cumberbatch has become so ubiquitous lately (he’s even in “August, Osage County”) I feel the name is no longer as alluring as it once was. Now Tom Hiddleston, there be sexy!

    October 25, 2014 at 1:54 pm

    • I have a penchant for naming everything I own, I’m not sure why. I sought out advice for ideas for my new phone name, and my friends suggested Benedict Cumberbatch because it is so long and awkward. I think my friends hate me.

      Now Tom Hiddleston is a name I can I live with. 😉

  5. You can always call him Ben, you know, once you guys get to know each other really well. Give him a nickname.

    October 27, 2014 at 11:54 am

    • Yes! I can call him “Ben” and have an engraved phone case made for him. Thank God I’m calling him Ben now. I hate to think what it would have cost me to engrave all those letters!

      October 27, 2014 at 12:18 pm

      • Hmmm… I hope that was a sarcastic response because you had already thought of that simple answer to your problem.

        October 27, 2014 at 2:40 pm

        • No, not sarcastic. Just boneheaded. 😛

          October 27, 2014 at 3:05 pm

  6. As the only Sci Fi writer you know, I have to vote for Yoda.

    October 27, 2014 at 3:03 pm

    • Clever, you are. 😉

      October 27, 2014 at 3:06 pm

      • A ‘tahd, I am.
