Nickname Story

I ran into a fellow inmate yesterday in the library, he told me his name and we began to talk, then someone came along and called him “Bad News.” I asked the guy why they called him “Bad News.” He told me because the community where he came from was small but had a television station and a radio station, and when he got into trouble, they all ran Bad News about him for several days, thus his name is now Bad News.

Another fellow inmate I once knew was called “Yuk Mouth”! You can guess why he is called that, mostly because he never brushed his teeth, and his mouth/breath smelled terrible all the time. Lol
