I was just wondering that. Why are you called Bermuda? Or why did you call yourself like that?

Al named me Bermuda back in 1981, because it sounds like Bermuda shorts, which are baggy, summer shorts. I guess that term for shorts isn't widely known outside of north America.



But there have been other Bermuda Schwartz's before me, most notably, a character on the Bullwinkle cartoon show who invented the hush-a-bomb, a bomb that exploded without making a noise.

Another thing that's funny to me about bermuda shorts is that they are commonly paired with hawaiian shirts.
