What are your favorite nick names for Twins players? I find myself making up and using terrible nick names I hear from friends all the time. Some of my favorites are below:

Plouffe = The French Pancake, Babe-Plouffe
Chris Parmalee = C-Parms or Parmesian Cheesey
Joe Mauer = Baby Jesus, Mr 2%
Kurt Suzuki = Kurt's Motorcycle Shop
Jason Kubel = Koooooooooooobs
Ricky Nolasco = Ricky Tikki Tembo-no Sa Rembo-Chari Bar Ruchi-pip Perp Pembo
Colabello = The Italian Hitman
Pinto = Beans

And so on. What are some of your favorites that you use with your friends or around the house?

Around the house:
Dozier = "the doooooj" (the j is pronounced like a "zh" sound)

Brian "The Dunce" Duensing
Michael Tonkin trucks
Joe Mauer's always changes but it usually has something to do with bilateral leg weakness
Pedro Florimon and Mike Pelfrey = *the noise a remotes makes when changing the channel*

I seem to go with a musical theme:

Honky Tonkin
No Limit Dozier
MC Hammer, Hammer Time, Please Hammer Don't Hurt 'Em
Chick Correa
Perkins - Pony Boy
Mauer - James Loney (ok, not strictly a musical theme)
He's a No Limit Dozier, I thought I told ya!
