Taking a page out of the Boston Celtics' Glen 'Large Infant' Davis's playbook, Shaun White wants a new nickname. After years of being called 'The Flying Tomato,' White has spoken out about the moniker saying, "Whoever was on the mic had some dead air to fill — and the name came out of his mouth." Not a ringing endorsement.

He has a suggestion for his alias: 'The Animal.'

Purportedly uttered by "someone" for his resemblance to the Muppets drummer, White fully supports this new nom de guerre, calling it "kind of rad." Sure...

But everyone knows you can't pick your own nickname. Here's some other ideas, courtesy of Fourth-Place Medal:

- Shaun 'Red Blue and' White

- Shaun 'Joan Holloway' White

- 'Shaunagranate' White

- Shaun 'Of the Red' White

- Shaun 'Shawn Sean Chone Shonn' White

You can do better. Let's hear 'em in the comments.
