What are the iconic MN phrases?

As local editor for a MN Local site, I am organising discounts with businesses in my area.

They can do this by starting a thread in local where they offer a special deal for MNetters.

I thought it would be good to have a MNetty phrase or word as a password, rather than just 'Could you deduct the MN discount please?'

So, you would walk into a shop, select what you wanted to purchase and whisper 'PomBears' to the shopkeeper. smile

Any ideas? Most of them are a bit naughty (such as Norks), so they might not want to use them.

Perhaps not what we want to tell potential advertisers. We won't see them again, that is for sure.

This 'item name' will pass

Maybe best not to use 'Your post makes you sound like an arse and here's why'
Hairdressers - MN haircut.
Food shops - River of sweetcorn.

Nest of vipers!

Nest of Vipers is excellent!

Yes, I love the idea of linking to a type of shop.

The shop I am thinking of sells interior design and gift ware. Wonder if I can persuade her to have the secret code, 'Do you sell twigs and pebbly shit?'

(is that the right quote?)

52 inch plasma TV - electricals
