The story of the moonrat nickname

I used to test games for a living, including many quiz games. One day a fellow tester was playing Who Wants To Be A Millionaire, and a question came up “To what family of animals do moonrats belong?”* Fellow tester found the name moonrat amusing, and came back to tell the other testers about it. One sarcastic comment from me about it, and he called me a moonrat. It stuck.
