Silly names for things

    Over the years of playing, friends and I have called in-game items and places by silly names...to the point that some times I goof and use those names with other "not in the loop" folks. :confused:

    Things like:

    battle plantains = war bananas

    victornuts = Victor's nuts
    ("I harvested a couple of Victor's nuts this morning." "Ouch, poor Victor." Super classy, I know.)

    Fens of Nathsar = Fans of Nascar

    Jarsath Wastes = JarJar Wastes

    Halas = Holla!!!
    (said enthusiastically)

    Moors of Ykesha = Why, Kesha?
    (yeah, that one's bad)

    anything with "mucus" in its name becomes "muck-us"
    (we had a guildy long ago that pronounced it that way and it stuck)​

    Sinking Sands = Stinking Sands

    devourers = "the sperm dudes" (more classiness, but darn it, everyone knows what we mean right away)​

    (plus others that I'm sure I'll remember as soon as I post this <grin> )​

    You guys have any? :D

    I always call the devourers spermies. Have since they first appeared. Had a person call me out on that one time by asking why I would use that word and call them that. Uh, because they look like sperm? I think they were offended, lol.

    Twark = Twerk
    Nye'Cyelona (spelling??) = My Sharona.

    Those are the two I can think of off the top of my head, but I am sure over the years there have been many. Sometimes zones even get special names, some I can't dare to type :p

    Ditto on My Sharona (sometimes it’s New Caledonia when we are feeling worldly). Twark is either Twerk or Quark, depending on the geek level of the person I’m talking to. ;)

    Devourers definitely are sperm, everybody I know calls them that. On Valor (German) we used to call Steppes Station "Deppenstation" (Morons' Station). Thundering Steppes (Donnersteppe) was Donersteppe of course. Nye'Cyelona is Neukölln (a district of Berlin).
