Middle initial is W, as opposed to his poppie, who is H.W. So George Bush II was called (not sure by whom) "W" to differentiate, and in Texas-speak that becomes "Dubya."

He's Alfred E Neuman of Mad Magazine -- "What, Me Worry?" I don't know how many times I've told you. A much younger shot, of course:

Yikes, what happened to you, gus? Looks like you've been snorting a bit too much. Going pale from your last avatar is an understatement.

MANY MONTHS AGO . . .
kev - Many months ago when the nickname first began, there was a newspaper columnist who wrote that this is the way "young" President Bush himself pronounces his middle initial, "W." Not sure I can find the column now, but I'll go search. If it "appears," look here for it to be posted.

"There's no such thing as a 'dumb' question." So sayeth your local "teach"!

I myself have taken to calling him "DUH-Bya" in some forums.

PS. I have that "Nation" cover as a shirt:)

When Al gore said he invented the internet, Bush retorted and said,"if al gore invented the internet then why do all the web addresses begin with dubya?"

Except that Al Gore never said he invented the Internet, an urban legend that's been perpetuated by the ignorant:

Must be that Dubya was again getting his information from the same place that he got the information that Iraq had nucluar (sic) weapons.
