Question.

Hello,

Why do you guys keep calling Lorne Lanning by his first name (like he is your pal or something)?

Because it's shorter than Lanning and he's a cool guy I guess? It's not like we're calling him that to his face.

I like to call him Lorne Almighty for he is deserving of worship.

Listen, Vlam, Shade's a speedy guy, he doesn't have time for none of that last name bullshit.

When I say Lorne, I actually mean Lorne Lemming, the future character of my Oddword fanfic

Because his name is Lorne? And in context of an Oddworld Forum. I'm fairly sure people know who me mean.

Crashpunk, for example, do you call your mother by her first name?

Also, I was asking the question because other game developers get called by their last name.

Because it's the Oddworld Forums and all fan corners use a shorthand to discuss their respective creators. We don't need to say "Lorne Lanning" because we automatically know who "Lorne" refers to.

In this instance it just happens that "Lorne" is easier to say than "Lanning". It's not a particularly common first name, either, which is probably why people use it.

It doesn't really matter though.

i think whatever point you're trying to make is invalid because most people don't call their mother by their first or last name, they usually go with "mom" or something similar. are you suggesting Lorne is our mother?

Lorne is not only our mother, He is our father and our God too.

Holy Sock, you're being disrespectful: why don't you call him "L" then? It's even easier to say than "Lorne".

Why not just say Lorne? It's been working wonders so far.

Just the suggestion that MeechShrykull1029 actually was Lorne fills me with a mix of giggles and shudders of horror.

To be honest though, I don't really think so much about why I say Lorne. But I'd rather say Lorne than Mr Lanning.

Not before the release of Tzf then, given the fact you're still a virgin.
