What's the story behind everybody's handle/screenname? Maybe we've done this before, but if we have, I don't remember.

Back in 2000, my dad decided to trade in his '89 Taurus for something a bit more bespoke. So we went to check out the then-new Jaguar S-Type. The salesperson was a rather cold, intimidating woman named Venka who spoke with a thick Russian accent. Every time she tried to say "Jaguar," it came out "Jagvar." I guess it struck a chord with me.

In the end, Dad decided he hated the S-Type and got an equally boring ES300.
