GAS may be useful here. I see it used mainly on guitar forums, meaning "Gear Acquisition Syndrome." As in, "I've been seriously GASing for a Triple Rectifier for a while now."

I think the concept applies to us brewers, too.

Heh....I guess that does kinda sound like a procotologist's fantasy, huh?

Maybe I shoulda said '53 Tele, rather than Triple Rectifier. Oh well.

One I use alot but not usually on the net is a WWII US Navy code

BZ32V (Bravo Zulu thirty two Victor)

BZ being the code for job well done and 32V being the old code for air/sea rescue which was commonly refered to as Dumbo. Over time Dumbo has been change to dumb @55. So next time someone you work with or for really screws the pooch just look at them and say BZ32V

How about BAMFB for a particularly strong beer ? Heard it once used to describe large trucks ( BAMFT).
Buddy of mine went through a driving class in the USMC. The instructor told them they'd be driving cars, jeeps, LT's( light trucks) and BAMFT's. Thought it was funny.

Reminds me of one of the dumbest jokes ever...

Q: What do you call a Jamaican proctologist?
A: Pokemon

(apologies in case there's any Jamaican HBs on the board!)
