Ham radio alternative name for McDonald's

Some members of the group of amateur radio operators in USA who choose to remain out of the mainstream by operating AM voice mode(which can easily be monitored on a conventional shortwave receiver), have over nearly three decades developed a somewhat specialised dialect of English. One of my favourites is the term "McBarfalds", which is clearly understood by all. It not only expresses humour; it conveys a sense of contempt many people here actually feel for this corporation. I know of no attempt by the corporation to sue anyone for broadcasting this term worldwide over the airwaves.
