Whats intresting is you named him Marta. That is a terrible nickname.
Why dont we just change his name to poor man turner while were at it?
The man is the burner, not the marta.

I have tried to explain that.

MARTA does not make sense either!

The Burner Turner or The Marta Turner. It is not even a close decision.

Dont worry about it.....most guys dont like the nickname given.   I remember DHall didnt like D-LO
D-lo sounds like a female rapper

Come to think of it MARTA sounds like Martha

Dude...I like The Burner...I'm not trying to change his name, but JA55 has already done it.   <_<  I just thought I'd have some fun with the acronym... ;)

Isn't it "Moving Africans Rapidly Through Atlanta"?

That's what I've heard, but I've been taking MARTA recently.  Plenty of us honkeys are on it.

And MARTA is a bad name.  Turner is not slow, inefficient, or dirty.

Not so much now than in the early 80s.  I don't actually think it's racist, (1) because of the way that it was being used and (2) it was thought to have been made up on the AA community.  ;)

Nope was just saying it in a general sense. Sorry if I offended.

It didn't offend me....it kinda seems as if people were sayin I was stupid for giving him a nickname when he already has one.  Actually, the first time I'd heard the name in reference to Turner is when he drug the dude from KC..... :lol: They said that Turner took him for a ride and since J. Bettis is "The Bus"  they wanted to call Turner....(gulp) "The Marta" which is Metro Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority.

If you've ever ridden MARTA then you would realize how bad of a nickname it is.

It has a limited range and direction.  It's good for going to about 10-15 places in or around Metro Atlanta.  That's about it...

If you took MARTA.... you'd still be waiting for the train right now and you would have seen about 4 trains going the other direction.

Oh and God help you if you grab the wrong train at Lindberg station.  That may throw off your travel time by 1/2 hour if your lucky.

Don't even get me started on the buses...

I was on the news back in 78, I was 11, as one of the first to have rode (grammer) on the new train at the time.  I'm very, very familiar with MARTA.   ;)
