What’s in a Name?

He had to make a name for himself.

He was strong, but not strong enough to be known for his strength.

That earned him his name:

The Carotid Kid.

I feigned interest in the brick, examining it while trying to avoid laughing.

I was surprised when I found an actual message on the projectile, in crayon:

“If you help her, you’re dead!”
