Lol by: Cubonator
This week we’re excited to profile Cubonator, an active member of our community who can mostly be found on the Memebase sites of My Little Brony and Video Games. Cubonator answered some of our questions below, and we’re happy to introduce you to this hilarious and creative Cheez peep!
We’d love to hear the story behind your username!
Cubonator comes from my lifelong nickname: “Cubo” which means “cube” in spanish. I’ve had square-shape related nicknames since Kindergarten, and Cubo was the pinnacle of all of them (I think that the nickname-ees grew tired of thinking of increasingly sillier stuff). The -nator suffix was just something I decided to add at the end because I felt “Cubo” by itself wouldn’t make a suitable internet surname.
How long have you been a member of the Cheezburger community and what made you want to join?
I’ve been a reader of Cheezburger for quite a long time (Even before memebase existed), but I only decided to take a more active role almost one year ago. The reason being the show MLP:FiM. Why? Well, at that time I was a brony and I heard the news that the show was finally going to be aired in Latin-America (and dubbed, of course). So I wanted to make an image depicting how happy I was hearing the news, and I created my account. As for the rest, well you could say that the rest is history 😀
What do you look for in a Cheez friend, and what’s the best way to make a new friend?
What a weird question… I have never been a picky person in regards to friendship. But, because I’m a shy person, someone that I can easily talk to is much appreciated.
What is it about Cheezburger that makes you happy?
I can share ideas that I think will be good for a laugh or evoke another feeling. Seeing them carry on as I intended (and sometimes evoking something else, which can be a pleasant surprise) makes me feel happy and drives me to make more.
Tell us something super interesting about yourself—an embarrassing story, a quirky habit, something that will make us laugh!
I’m a terrible, creative cook. I mean, I know how to cook some stuff, but if I have no clear idea of what to make. I can have all the ingredients right in front of me and not know what to do. In fact, one time I was all alone and there was nothing to reheat, only raw ingredients. My roommate, who is in charge of cooking, was out. So I had to call my mom through Skype (I’m living in France, and she lives in Mexico) to ask her “Mom, I’m by myself and I don’t know what to do, can you tell me what should I cook?”. She still likes to joke about it today.
If you could only eat one meal for the rest of your life, what would it be? Cheezburgers?
Homemade Carne en su Jugo. Sweet Jesus, that is delicious.
If you could create a new feature for Cheezburger members to use on our sites what would it be, and why do we need it?
Real-time comment tracking, like the WordPress account allowed us to do. It was pretty useful—without having to reload the page or actually be on the page you commented on you got notified when you got a reply, and you could reply back right away.
What else do you like to do when you’re not on the Internet?
Simple: Creating videogames (writing down ideas), working on existing projects (Mostly creating assets) and drawing.
What is your favorite submission?
I have a lot of lolz I like, but this one ranks very high.
