In the purest, reader's digest version:
1.) We go through basics, and a few of us become good friends.
2.) Shortly into non-radar, I've found a nice field up north where I can walk&jog, shirtless, without fear of showing off my white, red-headed doughy physique.
3.) Friends begin making fun of this strange act.
4.) Funpoking evolves, ever so slowly, into a story about an Oklahoman farmer, slighly dislocated with reality, that makes a phone call one day:
"Yeah pete, another one of them polar bears done wandah'ed into mah property."
5.) It's funny because:
5a.) The polar bear is in Oklahoma.
5b.) This, according to Emery's voice (another story in itself), this has happend more than once.
5c.) The complete obscurity.
6.) Things become more and more elaborate, beyond what can be explained in text, or to an outside individual for that matter, but to this day I'm referred to (on a daily basis) as a polar bear.
7.) The humor hits home because you, with that name, made a comment about how controllers have to be a bit "off base" with their humor.
