also "the yellow dart"


The submitter does not know why these dentists have assumed pseudonyms, and neither do I, nor why their pseudonyms are so common. I'd go with something awesome if I was going to pick a dentist name, like Dr. Awesome.

My question is why is Dr. Marc using an assumed LAST name?

emilymichelle said...

+5! +10! Cool nickname!

I know this is early, but I think emilymichelle won the thread.

Call me a fool bethany but i'm lost on emilymichelle's comment. To Lois i say, i thought he was the SMART one. It's so much more difficult to track someone down if they have an alias surname....

toep said...

bethany said...

they are both references to a classic Strongbad Email.

Color me old?... When I was growing up you use quotations when writing your whole name to identify which name you preferred to be called or you used it for a nickname that you wanted to be called. Perhaps these are suppose to identify which name, after Dr., that they wish to be called. Especially since there are 2 Marcs.

I think what toep was trying to say was Double Deuce.

And From CS n LA, you can keep putting the name you'd like to be called in quotation marks, and I will keep making fun of you.

Strong bad jokes never get old.

Since this is a kids' dentist, the quotes are there to let parents know that the doctors are on a first-name basis with their patients. To a child, "We're going to see Dr. Marc" sounds less intimidating than "We're going to see Dr. Adelberg".
