jump all over them and the question, "Are you the list police?" will be 
BuzzedPenguin -- Express your love of caffeine and Linux. 
Expect a visit from the DEA.
HombreDelCafe -- Add a little south of the border flavor 
to your list presence. Expect a visit from the DEA.
CarolynsHusband -- No doubt this is how at least some of 
your neighbors think of you and we all know who's really in charge.
MinitaMan -- Need I explain? And, it's fun to say out loud.
TheOriginalCoffeeAndNotThatDamnImposterBertoia -- Put an 
end to the confusion once and for all. I mean, what's the chance he'll 
use this one?

In all seriousness (and that doesn't last long so read fast) I'm sitting 
here with a sore throat!  My wife absolutely cracked up - and of course

MinitaMan - I like that one. I can picture Beavis running around as the
Great Cornholio after ingesting a massive dose of sugar, floundering his
arms and sputtering "MinitaMan ... MinitaMan ... Heh-Heh, Heh-Heh".
What about PapaCata?
Not very good with user names, just with stuff users can use

Minitaman Van!
