:D :D BERC :lol: :lol:

Sorry Winston (no disrespect meant but) Aussie slang has already got a connotation for that, spelling may not be the same but it could be misleading if one sounds out the acronym.
"What is your hobby?"...................."I like BERCing"................."????????"
"birk" is a semi friendly insult usualy meaning fool or idiot.

Ha! What are the odds of that, accidentally choosing a derogatory slang term used in another English speaking country. So it's not just England and the US that are countries separated by a common language.

Actually, after posting it, I realized that term might be violating a trademark. Bird's Eye is a frozen foods brand in the US and, I see via Wikipedia, also known in Australia and New Zealand. It was the company that first thought of freezing veggies commercially.

OK, how about SOT (Sensational Onboard Television) or TWIT (Televised Wing-borne Inter-site Travel)?
