Callsign of the day

Callsign "Iron Man"

His real name was Ed, and he was slightly overweight (to be nice). We would often refer to him as "Fat Ed" but never in front of him. Someone stated that FE was the chemical symbol for Iron. So Iron Man was evolved. All the while meaning Fat Ed. He thought it was because of the Iron Man watch he wore, and was proud of the name.
