PS: From a friend, Pam:
“Today I (Pam) give you a mission: Come up with your roller derby name. It has to be unique— those are roller derby rules. Has to be kind of punny too without being too crude.
Examples from the International Registry:
Susan B. Agony
Tart of Darkness
My roller derby name is Busta Moobs. (See what I did there? It’s a Young MC reference and, uh…man I’m old.)” ~ Pam
