Sweetums degrees


Sometimes people ask me about my twitter handle @sweetums. It’s not from the muppet, but I did make this connection today: Sweetums was performed by Richard Hunt, who performed Statler, who was named after the Statler Hotel, which was renamed Hotel Pennsylvania, which was where HOPE was held, which was covered by Sweetums for Hack a Day. Woo 5 degrees!

The name actually comes from a one-liner I used once: “I was thinking of calling my motorcycle ‘Sweetums’… or is that too butch?”

It’s just a silly contrast joke, but I throughly enjoy people calling me sweetums. When you introduce yourself as ‘sweetums’, it’s disarming and when people address you as ‘sweetums’, it’s endearing.

  1. I did wonder where it came from and if it was in honor of something/someone. Back in the 90s I remember Kevin Smith used to have a ‘sweetums’ AOL email account. Funny when attached to a large guy with a facial hair. 😉
