Introducing…Frik and FrakOctober 22, 2007
We held a “Name our Mascots” contest at VCON over the weekend, asking people who stopped by the 13th Colony fan club table to vote for one of several pairs of names for our two Cylon mini-mates. By an overwhelming margin, the winning choice was Frik and Frak but a surprising number of votes went to AC and DC and Bert and Ernie.The actual origin of the term “Frick and Frack” comes from a pair of Swiss comedian skaters who performed in Ice Follies in the 1930s. Over the years, the phrase has come to denote any two people so closely associated as to be indistinguishable.
I’ll say Frik is the one with hands and Frak is the one with cannons, since I’d be more than likely to swear when accosted by one of the full-size models sporting those cannons on the end of its arms.
Thanks to everyone who dropped by to say “hello” to us on Saturday at the convention, and thanks for dropping by our blog!
