He got it while he was on a ski trip with Hillel Slovak and some other guy (I forget his name, he was just some random dude). As to how he got it, I don't know. Nobody does, actually.

he got it on a ski trip as the others said with Anthony, Hillel and Barry. They decided not to use their real names on the trip so Anthony was swan and barry became tree. They called Flea "Flea" because he was Mick-B the Flea, he was always jumping around and full of energy and it rhymes!!!

Its in their biography if you wanna read more.

Peace

he was dry humping everyone and got his crabs on them and it itched. instead of calling him "crabs," they called him "flea" because fleas are more known to be itchy than the one of two crabs.

Yup, though I recommend Anthony's autobiography more, an extremely well written book and fantastic insight on the frontman of RHCP. Also it actually talks about the year of nothing as Flea calls it (1997).

Yeah, the names were Antoinne(sp?) the Swan (because, apparently, his dick's shaped like a swan's neck) and Mikey B the Flea (because, as already mentioned, he was always leaping around like a crazy fool), I believe. Hillel had a couple of nicknames; Slim and Mr. Huckleberry (maybe more, not really sure). God knows why though!

anyway
it hasn't been on that ski trip that anthony got his "nickname" the swan
that ski trip was when they were around 16/17

and the swan first appeared in the song "get up and jump" (about 4 years later)
and its not a reference to his dick...it just rhymes, that's how anthony explains it
just to make that clear

Whodicted

The gayest thing you can do is to be nicknamed after your dick. Or, is it called a dickname?

Anyway, how the hell do they know? How long did they stare at his dick to realize "hey, that looks like a... um.... swan!"
