Ask Bobby #6: Nicknames


Written by Joe DiPersio (He/Him) and illustrated by Bianca Oppedisano (She/Her) / Mass Media Staff

Q: What mean names did people call you when you were a kid? What names do people call you now?

A: I was called “the big, blue b— boy” by all the local kids. They would scream that at me as they chased me around town with a molten hot piece of metal. I don’t really have a nickname these days but some of the guys down at the docks near Castle Island call me “Wormy Jordan” for reasons that my lawyers strongly recommends I don’t discuss publicly.
