Exactly what the thread says, tell me about terms in your little niche that haven't broken through.

In the action figure/Barbie collector world, there's a term - MOC - meaning Mint On Card, the best possible condition a figure can be in.

Or in the Disney Weirdos world, AFOD is "Adult Fan of Disney"

What are your weird subculture's jargon and terminology that hasn't made it out of your subculture. For clarification, something like "tilt" that started in Poker but is now just kind of generically widely used to mean 'upset and emotional based on past events' wouldn't really apply, since it's made the jump to general usage. I'm looking for the stuff that's still just in your little subculture.

If we're including work poo poo:

OOC: Out Of Code, as in out of date, unsaleable product. If you've left 'codes, you've done hosed up or gotten lazy.

Handheld: a hand held (duh) computer used in inventory tracking and to generate invoices.

Milk-hook: a three foot long blunt hook with a T handle on top, used to grab the bottom of a stack of milk crates or plastic trays while pulling from the top with your other hand. Most are fifth-wheel pin-pullers, used to engage/disengage the pin on a 5th wheel trailer turntable. Seriously, buy one. They come in handy for a bunch of things. Saves the back and shoulders.
