This Post article about the DCPD's database of nicknames that they use to identify people:

The repository has thousands of entries -- such as Fat Boy, Boo Boo, Meatball, Money Cash, Big Stupid, Butter, P-Funk, Dirt and Ed Lover. Many evoke real or fictional gangsters -- Gotti, Godfather, Corleone.



I think I might start going by "Big Stupid."
