Default Re: What's the story behind your user name?

Haha I've had a few PM's asking me what mine is all about, so here goes:

It is a combination of some typically Scottish exclaimations of surprise.
Jings! Crivens! Help ma boab!
These are regularly strung together and appear many times in older Scottish literature and comedy, for instance, its an expression used a lot in Oor Wullie and The Broons.

Its my email address and my facebook URL also, so I have it pretty tied up!
