What was your funniest curly nickname?

besides the typical (fro-girl, curly-q, noodle head, etc)

"brillo" (as in the Brillo scrub pad) from the hubbie on my exceptionally bad hair days.

And my personal favorite "Kenny G" or "Michael Bolton" from my little brother when my hair was long and pre-CG!

I didn't have curly hair as a child. So I have no curly nicknames. My Dad just called me "Squeakie" or "Squeaks" I guess I made squeaky type sounds as a baby.

My hubby says positive things, compliments, but I can't think of any real nicknames.

i was called dandelion puff. it wasnt funny at all! but apparently everyone else did. it was because my hair would get frizzy and was really poofy and short so i apparently looked like a dandelion.
i was also called lion because my hair was poofy.
Pedro....then the Napoleon Dynamite movie came back and stuck with me while at college...some people even thought it was my real name...

i started calling my self rico suave but my hair was growing back after chemo because it would jus slick down and sometimes have lil waves...but my friend said i looked more like a pedro...

i hated the name but it stuck and 4 years later people style call me it...one time my friend's grandmother called me pancho and thought that was my real name too...
