Stupid But Fun
I finally realized that I don't have to sign my actual name when I buy groceries at Trader Joe's and use my credit card. The last three times I've put my vittles on the card I have been "Trader Vic" (not really but close enough), "Arrrgghh, Matey!" and once, just once, the traditional "X."

It's stupid but it's not like I spend time thinking up clever names to sign on the little electronic signature gizmo. Speaking of which, I do like the message the box gives when one has passed his card through the slot: "Swipe Accepted." So, like, it's okay to take stuff?
