“Donkey!” Mind you, it’s doink ! Not donkey !

If you’ve wondered why/how my nick “doink” came about. Ponder no more. I’m taking the liberty to feed your curious mind.

It started 10 years back during my high school days, I enjoyed pouncing behind my friends like a crouching “Hobbes”. Somehow my girlfriends labeled my gestures with an acompanying sound effect “doink ..doink ..doink..”

I thought it was rather cute, rather me. I started using that nick in chatrooms, emails, IM ..practically anything online. Doink away …
