Sloppy Joe's Name E-mail

One of our good friends, Sloppy Joe, wrote in to tell us the origin of his name.

This is an enquiry e-mail via http://lebowskipodcast.com from:
Sloppy Joe

Chalupa commented on the origin of this nick name and I thought I would delay responding until I knew about his.
But, since the story is not that interesting, I did not want to create an air of drama and intrigue then bore everyone.
In my younger days, I was able to do a fairly accurate Axel Rose impression.  I had the nasally voice and goofy dance down. It was the hit of parties (after everyone was a bit liquored up).  Adam Sandler then came out with a song about the lunchlady (Lunchlady Land) and he does a very good Axel in that song when he sings about the lunchlady's friend, Sloppy Joe.
My friends heard that, remembered my Axel Rose and started calling me Sloppy Joe, Slop, Sloppy Joe.  It has stuck ever since.
Sorry it is not more interesting.  Someday, I may tell you about the Junior Prom and having all of our prom dates stolen by The Clash.
