Posted:Ok people youve all seen him around, some of you on here have even been lucky enough to meet him wink

But me - ive known this chap now for far too long and one thing still bugs me...........

Everytime im with him he intorduces himself to people as 2bags......... thats cool, i introduce myself as strugz, but here the thing.......

People say where does strugz come from........ and i reply its my surname (strugnell) but hey, its the truth rolleyes

Then people say to 2bags - where does your name come from.......... his response....

No where - i made it up...... rolleyes

So what ive been telling him is to create a story for the name, it may be lying but it will satisfy those people so much more when they ask - "2bags where did that name come from"

So as he just cant think of anything and wouldnt have the balls to open it for discussion........... i have biggrin

So people please feel free to create a short story / random event / moment of super hero power for which Steve can say he got the name 2bags from. cool



biggrin Over to you mad imaginary types biggrin

hug

Posted:i seem to remember steve saying something about the origins, it was so long ago though ..... something about a straw, orange juice .......... and dunking tea

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourself, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous and talented? Who are you NOT to be?

Posted:I think it comes from the amount of carrier bags you filled with numbers from the Deli counter at Falmouth to give to the queueing women that were meant to line up outside your tent for baby making auditions.

Posted:Firstly.....I think that the song should be recorded and placed merrily into Steves Gallery for all to hear biggrin

Secondly.....

According to Aesop "every man is borne with two bags around his neck, the one in front full of his neighbours faults, the one to the rear full of his own faults. This is why it is easier to see the faults in others than it is to se the faults in yourself"

Steve learned this at an early age as he began journey into the exciting world of juggling. With this old proverd in mind young Steve (pictured below)

reached his first total nirvana.......it was his intention, ney his life long desire to turn both bags (or, indeed, himself if he isolated wink ) 90 degrees so he could see BOTH BAGS with a simple turn of his head! Then he would easily see the juggling mistakes he made as clearly as those made by others, then, after many years gathering information and bettering himself he could eventually take over the whole world as the best jugglerist ever!!

BOM BOM BOOOOOOHM!!!!!

Steve started his journey and sought to improve himself every day, when he reached the tender age of 5 years he had already invented Mills Mess, Chops, BTB Crossers with up to 7 balls and all sorts of other crazy juggling moves and even had time to invent siteswap without any help from his Mom or Dad!!!

Over the years Steve's talents grew further, lapping up the praise and adoration of his peers he started to balance things on his face! Crazy as it may seem, before he'd even had the chance to fail his GCSE's and live as a wandering minstrel or before becoming the only full time member of Pyro Flow Steve had worked himself up to balancing himself on his own face while spinning twelvty poi behind his back!! eek

The power of Two bags is still in Steve today, (I won't say where so lets just say it don't get very sunny there all to often wink ) Although now reduced to "2bags" to be all hip and trendy like he's sending a verbal text message, Steve can still be found juggling and balancing things while spinning umpteen poi most weekends on the south coast. Children gather, adults look on in awe as 2bags and his followers appear to levitate down the street by balancing their big toes on a single particle of air!

And rightly, he is known as 2bags. They chant it in the streets of Clapton on Sea, the call it from the highest block of flats in Birmingham, they sing it from the windows of Deerbolt Prison (County Durham).

2bags....2bags.....2bags......

Or maybe they're all just after some golden liquid refreshment wink
