  • I was a weird kid, and I wanted the popular girls to accept me into their group,

  • and I thought having a screen name like this

  • would trick them into thinking I was one of them.

  • When I was 13, John Cena was my favorite wrestler,

  • and he called his fans "The Chain Gang"

  • and me being 13 at the time, had to add a 69 at the end.

  • (laughing) (beep)

  • I mean what else can you expect from a person

  • who wears her name in hoop earrings?

  • Cause I'm Cuban, and proud.

  • Fresh out of the Quinceañera stage.

  • So I chose HairyJ69, when I was 18 and in college

  • because I'm hairy, extremely hairy, I'm Jewish,

  • and I like to 69.

  • I chose this screen name,

  • because I wanted to live in California.

  • I thought that's where all the pretty

  • and popular people lived.

  • Clearly I wasn't much of a speller.

  • This is genius all right, when you're scanning your friends list,

  • you wonder who's on,

  • and then when you see that I'm on,

  • you're like, "hey, Ryan in on."

  • I added the X because I forgot my password.

  • I'm pretty proud of it actually.

  • [Voiceover] That never occurred to you Ryan is on "X" ?

  • Oh (beep) (laughs) No that never occurred to me.

  • Oh my god.

  • You threw me off, man I'm like...

  • (laughs)

  • You ruined it, (beep).

  • I chose this name when I was about 13 years old.

  • Stay hooded, because I thought I would stay ghetto.

  • Brat is because I was spoiled.

  • And 0131 because I'm an Aquarius.

  • Chubbystar, cause I was a little thick growing up

  • and clearly I'm a (beep) star.

  • I don't know why I chose 27 actually.

  • That's my age right now.

  • Maybe this is all like full circle.

  • I wasn't very good at girls,

  • so I thought that maybe being

  • quirky and slapstick would help.

  • It didn't.

  • I was shocked when this was not taken.

  • It's not ironic enough to be funny.

  • It's, it's more painful.

  • I don't know why I thought this was cool

  • or okay or acceptable in any way.

  • I thought farts were hilarious as a junior high student and sad part is, I was born in 83, not 87.

  • Fartlover83 was taken.

  • So I'm not alone in my loving farts.

  • So I was 13, I was trying to get girls online,

  • and I thought I was a Cyber Casanova.

  • I like to not live with regrets,

  • I was trying to get chicks on AOL.

  • I really liked soccer, and I liked the word "dude".

  • I thought dudette sounded weird.

  • I didn't wanna have a number, so my dad suggested ii,

  • cause it means the second.

  • So my AIM name is technically Soccer Dude the second.

  • I made up this word and I don't know what it means at all.

  • I have no idea what I was going for with this.

  • My AIM name was Blackbarbiegoku367.

  • Because it combined my four favorite things.

  • Being black, playing with barbies,

  • Goku from Dragon Ball Z, and 367 because

  • that was my crushes locker number.

  • I'm not ashamed.

  • (laughs)

  • (beep). (laughs)

  • (beep) You know what, I'm a little embarrassed.

  • I'll say it.

  • I thought it was the king of AIM, but,

  • (beep).

I was a weird kid, and I wanted the popular girls to accept me into their group,
