How embarrassing was your first email address?

It’s all about the underscores

Everyone felt the buzz of excitement when you got your first email. It was a huge step on the path to adulthood. Unfortunately, what we thought was a great way of showing our personality now can’t be remembered without a facial expression that looks like you’ve just sucked on a lemon.

We wanted to see if anyone’s were more awful than ours, so jess_is_a_nutter@hotmail.com and happy_henri@msn.com set out to find the most cringeworthy addresses on campus.

Glen, Cinema and Photography, 4th year

This guy not only had one embarrassing email, but two: “mr-music-note@hotmail.com” and “twistedfirestarter@hotmail.co.uk”

“Everyone loved The Prodigy.” Yeah, we liked them, but not that much

Amy, Psychology, 4th year

We can’t decide what’s more depressing – misschatterbox or ntlworld.
