My username was originally "EatShitBob", in reference to Bob Murray. But Quizmaster didn't think it was okay that I had a swearword in my username, so he changed it to "ESBob". I still wanted to make fun of Bob Murray, but I also understand that people found the old name objectionable, so I changed to my current username. A coprophage is a person who eats, ..., you know.
