In my old local pub we had too many Daves so they all got nicknames
Volvo Dave (worked for volvo)
Scary Dave (A huge bear of a man with a voice louder than Brian Blessed)
Dave the painter
you get the idea

Any Proctologists?  {-)

Now I would like to point out a major grammatical error here which could be linked to the previous education topic. As this thread appears to be constructed of postings by many Daves, shouldn't the title be The Daves' Thread with the apostrophe after the s of the plural Daves?  I'm not a Dave by the way. Heheheh.

HMS St David is the name given to a number of tenders of the south Wales Royal Naval Reserve unit, later HMS Flying Fox:
