I have no excuse. I didn’t Google “Cannibalistic Nerd” before I named my blog that. Why? Because I didn’t think to. Why? Because I live in a world where the words “cannibal” and “nerd” just aren’t usually in the same sentence. As someone who’s been accused (by Tom) of “loving” serial killers, I also either should have heard of him and this nickname, and/or known better and searched to make sure there were no serial killers with the nickname. Because these are the kinds of things I do worry about and look up. Why I failed myself this time is beyond me.
I had planned on putting a link to him, but it’s terribly upsetting (seriously), so I decided against it. But I’ve given you the key to finding him. Just look up “cannibal nerd,” like I didn’t.
So, I have a blog that happens to kind of share a nickname with a serial killer. What’s a girl to do? A pros and cons list, duh.
- He also had lots of other nicknames, which were more popular than “Cannibal Nerd.” Eventually, if we can’t allow overlap for serial killer nicknames, there will be no way to name blogs anymore.
- Inevitably, someone would have gotten that nickname. At least it’s over with.
- “Cannibal Nerd” isn’t exactly like “Cannibalistic Nerd.” Although, cannibal_nerd is my exact Twitter name.
- I like how “Cannibalistic Nerd” sounds! It has a nice rhythm to it. It’s got a great beat and you can dance to it.
- I didn’t MEAN to do it. This is why I named my blog Cannibalistic Nerd.
- I already named it that. To name it something else requires some minimal effort and I am quite lazy.
- He’s dead.
- I named my blog after a serial killer.
- He’s like the worst one in Japan. Everybody hated him.
- He somehow got the “nerd” part of his nickname because of his huge collection of porn. Bad porn. I’ll just leave it at that.
- If I ever become a serial killer, I don’t want everyone getting confused.
- If I ever get murdered by a serial killer, I don’t want everyone thinking I had it coming.
What does everyone think? Should I change the name? Here’s a brainstorm on possible other names:
