Button's new nickname

Schumacher has often been lauded for his prowess in the wet, earning him the nickname Rainmeister. Given Button’s repeated stunning performances in drying conditions, shouldn’t he have a nickname too?
I was thinking Moistmeister.
Or not.13th June 2011, 15:47 at 3:47 pm #171163dam00rParticipant
Jenson ‘The brewer’ Button maybe? haha..13th June 2011, 16:15 at 4:15 pm #171164
we call him bunson, its a murrayism!think he meant to say jenson!
well bunson kept her lit yesterday13th June 2011, 16:34 at 4:34 pm #171165IcthyesParticipant
Bunsen burner, not spectacular but reliable and does the job. Open the throat hole up to let the oxygen in and woosh! A brilliant flame.
I think that’s quite a good nickname actually!13th June 2011, 17:34 at 5:34 pm #171166
nice one icthyes, bunson burner it is, so that old bike term “keep her lit ” is quite appropriate
the other one we like is “sock it to em , jb style”, a song by the specials,
found myself shouting that at t,telly during his pass of vettel yesterday

There’s one problem with that one – I don’t think Bunsen burners are at their most effective in changeable conditions!15th June 2011, 11:23 at 11:23 am #171168AsanatorParticipant
Bunsen Burner is rubbish!
Not that I have any better suggestions! Um…….Cadbury….because he is so silky smooth! (see Cadbury’s Buttons for those who don’t get such things).
Jens will do for me!15th June 2011, 20:15 at 8:15 pm #171169TodfodParticipant
I’ve given this a lot of thought. A good nickname for Jenson would be ‘Nitrous’ (as in nitrous oxide). Most of the time he makes me laugh, but when he’s on fire he’s pretty quick.15th June 2011, 20:15 at 8:15 pm #171170TodfodParticipant

Nitrous Button is kind of ironic too.15th June 2011, 23:39 at 11:39 pm #171171Craig WoollardParticipant
He kind of does have one already, The Frome Flyer, but that’s pretty boring… How about Red, the Red Button in the Red (and silver) car. Press it to activate Bernie’s sprinklers and suddenly he comes alive!!16th June 2011, 7:47 at 7:47 am #171172ukkMember

The Red Button versus the Red (now Silver) Baron? Actually Silver Button might be better, because silver buttons in clothing would be flash (like Jenson in his playboy days) but unquestionably of good quality (like Button himself!)16th June 2011, 16:47 at 4:47 pm #171175
in our house and among me mates he,s still “bunson” and probably always will16th June 2011, 21:39 at 9:39 pm #171176RandomChimpMember
‘Mutton’ because of his regular minor-face-fleece growth and shearing.
