Just like the "Seinfeld" episode where George wanted everyone to call him "T-Bone," Jacqui Gordon would like to be known by a bold new name.
The Pro triathlete has christened herself "Wanda B. Fasta" for her new double ironman stunt, "New Zealand then South Africa," due to take place in March and April 2009. She has released a lengthy justification for the comical moniker.
"I have someone else that takes over when it's time for me to work and when I'm racing, this alter ego that I've created that kind of protects me and who I really am," the triathlete said in a statement
"Wanda B. Fasta is the fun, more sensual, more aggressive, more outspoken side and more glamorous side that comes out when I'm working and when I'm racing."
Additionally, she has set up a cryptic MySpace page (http://www.myspace.com/jacqui gordon) that gives a "lucky person" the opportunity to receive a personal message and a gift bag valued at $5.
As George found out, nicknames usually do not work when they are self-bestowed. His colleagues thought he should be called Koko the monkey. In real life, rapper Eminem had better luck with his alter ego "Slim Shady," which he said came to him while he was on the toilet.
Jacqui Gordon just raced in the Hawaii World Championships where she was 26th pro!
