I always took that "happen" thing to be an intentional running gag.

Possibly starting with AYB ("what happen !!" - "someone set up us the bomb !!")

It isn't intentional.

Unfortunately, I've gotten so used to it that between years of living with him and now three years in Korea, I have started to overlook it in editing scripts. Though I'm not editing for DNPWWO anyhow.

Actually, it works perfectly well as a running gag.

Incidentally, Nikki's housemate was called "Becky" when she was first introduced. Her name (but apparently not her looks and personality) got changed somewhere along the way, I think I remember a Poe note about it. I should probably update the wiki -- but the wiki needs updating for a lot of DNPWWO stuff. I don't follow DNPWWO nearly as closely as I followed Errant Story, so am not really the person to do that; anybody interested?

Yeah, the problem is I have a pool of throwaway names I tend to "randomly" draw from when I need a quick name for a minor character. Which was fine, except it's a small pool and I've been doing this for a long time so I ended up repeating them a lot. Rebecca is apparently one of those names. Phil is another. To make matters worse, the thing about them constantly forgetting their names isn't a running joke so much as it's actually what I do, every single time they appear. So Nikki's roomates have gone through several names by this point.

If this was supposed to be an implication that BLM/anti-Trump protest groups are receiving outside logistical help, then I can assure you we are not! It's just the magic of social networking, 9 times out of 10. And the tenth is usually someone like me running around like a beheaded chicken in their spare time until enough things are in place that it doesn't look like a total disaster.

Pretty sure it wasn't implying that, it was talking about things like the pallets of bricks and such that "magically appear" right where they would be handy for starting a riot. In other words, not the protestors at all, and it's weird how we're expected to believe that it is.
