Penny Who?

Ok, I'm still kicking around some Penny names, and here's the criteria I want you all to use when offering your opinion:

It needs to sound good with the words "DON'T FUCK WITH... " in front of it.

Don't fuck with Penny Fantastic. (not hard core enough?)
Don't fuck with Penny Unstoppable. (too many syllables?)
Don't fuck with Penny McBadass. (a salute to my pseudo-Irishness)

I'm still taking nominations. I need to make a decision soon though, so I can test out this new Penny persona. Maybe later on today I'll kick in a door and yell "DON'T FUCKIN FUCK WITH PENNY MCBADASS!" just to see if it works for me.

Y'know, for research purposes.

Also, try the Penny name coupled with the following phrases:

The Wrath Of...
Tell 'em ... (insert Penny name of your choice) sentcha!

And it would probably be good, when testing out your Penny nominee, to slur the words a bit, to see if it would sound impressively intimidating and menacing if a drunk person said it. Cuz chances are, a drunk person probably will.

My vote is for Penny Royale. It reminds me of Pulp Fiction, which is about as classic as they come (what do they call a quarter pounder with cheese in France? A Royale with Cheese.) In the same scene where Vincent says you can get a beer in McDonalds in Europe.

It sounds bad-ass, and it reminds me of cheese. Those are really my guiding factors for all decisions I make in my life.

I like Penny McBadass, but without the "Mc". Just plain Penny Badass.

I think the Penny McBadass is growing on me. Didn't like it at first, but now, it's fairly kick-ass.

Glad to see you're coming out of the dark place. I hope things keep getting better for you.

EDIT: The captcha for my post is "fckym". I must be 40 going on 14, because it makes me laugh. All kinds of Scrabble opportunities with that one.

I know it's not on the list, but I kinda like Power Penny. You know, to go along with Power Panties?

I loved it when Beebie was at the dinner table and announced that she liked Penny McBadass the best. Coming from that angelic face, all lit up with excitement, the moment was priceless.

Actually, seeing the loving way you nurture and guide your kids, I think she likes it because it's ironic. Yeah, you're her mom, you're SUPPOSED to be kind of a badass to your kids, but you do it so kindly, and with a just reason. You are not a badass for the sake of being a badass. So, in the sense that irony is often poignant, the name fits.

Except for the fact that like most of us we have been McWhatever'd out since "chicken" began to be served at Micky D's, I like it.

Pour me a Smithwicks!
