weekend event....mascot

i don't even know wtf the 'noid' was suppose to be....ah, quick mr. google search and 'noid' was allegedly a take on annoyed--avoid being annoyed....smdh

i remember the guy who took a domino's hostage and shot several people...his last name was Noid and due to mental illness, he thought they were talking about HIM.

so, yeah.
I saw that on wiki. That's what made them drop the mascot though they've brought it back a few times for limited occasions.
the uneasy thing is? i remember being there in georgia being stopped in traffic when the police was dealing with that troubled man. unreal.
Well, yeah, a play on "annoyed", but also a twist on "nerd", which at that time was still a pejorative rather than an honourific. We used to say "Averd the Nerd!" whenever one of those commercials would come on.
I never even considered that!!! Until I posted this and googled what noid was suppose to be I had had no idea it was even a take on 'annoyed'!!
Wow, forgot about that character.

Anyone remember the furry Noble Roman's pizza monster?
