Is the question + thread about "the best 2 way radios?" was the origin of the "Bullies of Woot"...?

(An interesting read on misstatement and misunderstanding in posts and why a sparse few hundred words is so inadequate to communicate with precision. And the implication of "woot bullies" was a little more sarcastic than the name you seem to want. But I digress....)

Pondering some similarly inane possibilities like suggested, I think of deal makers (like "Wall Street" or "Joey McGuire"), deals in smokey political backrooms or for 420, or dealers promoting something behind tables at open markets or some convention. Uhmm.

Nothing pops up more ordinary than "The Cult of Woot", "Children of Woot" (actually the Kubu tribe in Sahara Africa), "Wootists" (like John Wayne was "The Shootist"), or the "Association of Woot Extremists", AWE.

OK, I went in a slightly different direction. Given a userid, what music genre does the name evoke?

The Snapsters = a cappella
The Shawn Miller Band = Steve Miller Band tribute
The Pretty Woot Princess = fem punk
Faughtey = Irish folk music

@magic cave: Remember, you asked for this.

Chamber of Horrors (Plays ONLY Baroque chamber music)

The Woot Cabal (Clearly a Grunge band ... and no one hurt me, but
I have NO idea what Grunge is, I just got that line from
"The Rock" and Bond, James Bond, aka Sean Connery)

Wooterville Trolley (Children's Music ... I loved Mr Rogers)

Belles of Woot (Music from the twenties and thirties ... Love's Old Sweet Song)

Oh, I can see this could be an endless list.

[Edit] Faughtey Fighters (Chinese Opera)

@skippykj: You better take BACK that insult. Seriously, there's a band called "Etaoin Shrdlu" (although I have no idea what kind of music they do play). Actually, according to GOOG, "There is a Macedonian demo band called Etaoin Shrdlu."

Oh my, it appears to be true. http://pl.ayli.st/Etaoin+Shrdlu#5

I have to go off in a corner now, and bandage my ribs (I recommend strongly that you don't listen unless you set whatever you're drinking DOWN).

@shrdlu: grunge = http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zYxkezUr8MQ (this by the '?king?' of grunge. This is one of the breakthrough songs.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IBszC40uvdQ My favorite (I think, because I hate to pick favorites)
I picked the non music videos, the videos were slightly strange.
Some\many other bands of the time were rock but promoters threw flannel on them and called them grunge.
I was not an early adopter to grunge but it has found a place in my collection.
