    Due to recent events, Tsu [Tsunami] wants to officially change her name.

    What is your preference for her new name?

    1). Tsu
    2). A-bomb
    3). Avalanche
    4). Hurricane
    5). Volcano

    If you knew Tsu like I know Tsu... :biggrin:

    Lets not go with volcano! Since she sort of predicted the Tsunami, I would rather not call in a volcano! :yuck:

    Tsu, is good!

    oooo ooo! I got one!
    "Attack of the giant doughnuts!" Oh man, that'd be sweeeet....cream filling everywhere!

    To shorten it up it and mix it in with the one Ivan stated earlier, this synthesis would produce................... "A-doughbomb"

    I like it.

    Since I already have a friend who goes by the screen name Hurricane, that would be too confusing to me. The others don't quite have a good ring to them, so I'm going to have to vote for Tsu, which most of us call her anyway. :biggrin:

    Ditto. I can't think of anything else that would feel right.

    I concur. Tsu's Tsu and all I can think of Tsu is Tsu.

    Tsu sounds good, linked in term of letters to the old name, and known in social way like that here at PF, it will remind us of the same character.

    [if i make a new member called Mosestti, it could be a link between me and him in a mind of people here :biggrin: :bugeye: ]

    There were Smurfs in '72? I don't remember seeing any until the 1980's.

    Exactly! It took ages for their population to recover, it was absolutely devestating.

    Of course it takes a long time, given that there is apparently only one female. Or do smurfs reproduce by budding? Or hmm... maybe they're like ferns and alternate haploid and diploid generations—perhaps the alternate generations are those fluorescent-haired troll thingummies...

    And what happens if poor Smurfette gets eaten by a giant squirrel or abducted by aliens? Does one of the males change gender like frogs do?

    (And Ivan—you're our resident expert, right?—how do the aliens react when they abduct a smurf?)

    I agree Tsu should almost certainly stay Tsu, or even just , i.e. "tsu" :wink: (or perhaps that should be – since she is a 外人 )

    Or other things to try:
    • Cyclone
    • Tornado
    • H-bomb (if you know Tsu like Ivan knows Tsu, why settle for an A-bomb...? :biggrin:)
    • Typhoon
    • Tempest
    • Scirocco (my favorite—other than just keeping "Tsu", of course)

    If you don't like that you won't like [link withdrawn] [Warning Contains Strong Adult Content] (no, not the fun kind - seriously not for the even moderatly easily offended)

    Instead of going through all that effort why not just call her "BIG BOOM"
