Q:

Dear Hobo and,

Hobo, when you said that you would have called yourself the Black Fox if you hadn't settled on Hobo, did you make the connection with the Black Sheep? Were you intentionally naming yourself after her awesomeness? Also, to all the members of the board, how many questions has the Black Sheep really answered? Would the editors be willing to restore her stats?

Dear Questioner,

Actually that pseudonym was in reference to a fantastic movie from 1955, The Court Jester. It was one of the three movies that defined my childhood, and probably my sense of humor as well.
