Suggest an SSID

Let's get the creative juices flowing......

I've now got a portable hotspot for the car - default SSID's are so boring.....
The house is  <The Floating Aubergine>, my MiFi is <The Bouncing Teacake>
So what is the the car to be?

I was tempted with <Bollox2Brexit> but that might be rather time limited (or maybe not...) and I'd rather not explore the case law around 'enraging public decency through WiFI connections' . Should I stick with <Lenin's Earwax>  ???

That's a bit like the SSIDs I often use - SECSCAN is one PirateScanner, etc

Unifi controller logs the SSID of neighbouring access points.  Which means we get to war-stay-still-and-wait for comedy SSIDs from passing/neighbouring students.

The crop has been getting progressively worse as everything converges on Verging Media router defaults.  We get an exhaustive list of $firstname's iPhone and various wifi-enabled penis cars and National Express buses as they go past.

In the last month the actually comedy ones amount to:

- Two counts of sexual innuendo
- One proclaiming their love for Jesus
- One Rude Word
- Two network-terminology-related puns
- One announcement of a party

I've seen a few of:-

<famous person>'s iPhone
<famous person>'s Hotspot

on the train and they often get people quite obviously looking around to see if they can spot <famous person>.

We had that one until last year.

Does Bluetooth count?  A couple of generations of students ago there used to be a phone named Blondie McBoobs somewhere in that direction -->
