"I'm a big fan of all those old cartoons. I selected Elroy to poke fun at the FRS designated "ELMER". My quiet protest. :) "

And the rest is history, FRS got into the act and we have one and only one official "Elroy" and there is no finer Elroy than Kevin K4VD!   (also check out his cool Elroy Jetson icon).

My XYL, KE0GIC, saw this post heading and said, "I know what an Elmer is, but what the heck's an Elroy", and then left chuckling after reading the responses.

Register now! to be designated as an Elmo. Elmo's get a lot less respect, and there's almost never one around when you need one.

To be an Elmo, you must engage your speech phase shifting option!

All things considered, I'd rather be an Elrond.

An Elroy is like a Kilroy, but with an "L"...

Enjoyed every comment. The old adage is, if you ask a stupid question you're open to anything. Thanks to everyone who replied.
