Guybrush Threefoot

I know most of you won't care, but I thought this was kind of funny and wanted to share....

With all the Monkey Island going around our house lately, our 5 year old daughter has been humming the song, which I think is kind of cute. But what's funny is every now and then she'll mention the game or ask a question about it but when she does, she calls him "Guybrush Threefoot", despite us constantly trying to correct her. I just find it funny because the series has always had the running joke of other characters mispronouncing his name. :)

Any of you others with small children experience a similar thing?

For the obsessively detail-oriented among you: The DPaint extension for brush files was .bbm (remember that file extensions could only be three letters in those days). The file was named guybrush.bbm, but the "brush" was included by Steve Purcell, who did the drawing, rather than by DPaint itself.

    My mind has been blown. Down is up. Black is white.


    I need a lie down.

  • @monkey_05_06 said: That's cool. Didn't mean to sound offensive or anything, so sorry if I did. ;) Like I said, I'm sure a lot of people might've mispronounced/forgotten the name at first. :D

    na its kool :D

    Wait, are you serious? And here I could've sworn that down is white and up is black!! :eek:

  • Threefoot?

    Well he does already have 3 wet legs in his pants.

  • threefoot is pretty funny. could be worth including in the game. :)

  • mmm, my ex-boyfriend used to call me 'Mancomb' affectionately.

    We jokingly agreed to call our first child Guybrush Threep Wood, or Guy Brush Threep Wood given that we were both huge fans of the games, and his surname was Wood.

  • The missus once called him Guy Fawkes Brush. Which was mildly amusing.:)

    Hate to correct you there Dave, but your memory is faulty... The Amiga never had any such extension limitations, that was DOS. The file extension for brush files in Deluxe Paint was actually .brush, not .bbm.

    :P

  • Dave Grossman is always right! ALWAYS!

    If Dave says your name is Susan, then we will all call you Susie from now on and you will LIKE it!
    You will be proud to tell people: "My name is Susan because Dave Grossman ****ing said so!"

    Seriously though, it really doesn't matter if that tidbit is correct or not, because .brush is a Xerox Doodle extension, which I highly doubt they used in the development.
    Also, it has sort of been taken as read that it was developed on an Amiga, since everything else at the time was, but I have never seen anything that explicitly stated it.
