 Wayne Rooney - Uncyclopedia
Born in 1881, Wayne "Giggsy" Rooney is renowned as one of America's most notable vaudeville performers known for his fierce satirical humor and relentless racial slurs.
Prior to his performing career, Rooney pursued the slap bracelet industry (unfortunately, this maverick was much too ahead of his time as the American people failed to realize his vision of self-wrapping wrist wear until the early 1990's, and the later 2070's when the slap bracelet made its long-await comeback).
Sadly, the whole affair had earned him the nickname Wayne the "Fancy Flamingo" Rooney which haunted him the rest of his life, although how or why this nickname was given to him is unknown to vaudevillian historians and the entire scope of reason, logic, and waffles.
