Team Cheers

  • TACO BACO — Sometimes used as a call-and-response (i.e., "TACO" "BACO"), TACO BACO is a reference to a popular edit made of the Taco Bell logo and slogan to read "Tinkle Outside The Binkle. Taco Baco."
  • Live Más — A reference to a now-defunct, turn-of-the-century taco-based dining establishment. Live is pronounced with two syllables.
  • Taco Tuesday — a date invoked even on days that are not Tuesday. Sometimes, "Taco Tuesday came early this year," an exclamation that ignores the guaranteed frequency of Tuesdays.
  • We eatin' tonight; Tonight we feast; and other emphatic turns of phrase referring to consumption of tacos.
  • WE DON'T CRACK, referring to their firm taco shells and "exceptional" ""defense"".
  • Liberal use of the taco emoji (🌮), sometimes accompanied by the chili emoji (🌶) to denote spicy plays.
  • Occasional use of the pineapple and crown emojis (🍍👑), a reference to franchise manager Al Pastor.
  • BONGERS — Used either positively or negatively, often with "(positive)" or "(negative)" following it.
  • EAT — EAT.

*Rat Mason came back from elsewhere season 15 day 3, bearing the name "-a- M--o-".
**Season 12 was the first appearance of Wills, once of which was Trust. "I trust Sexton Wheerer" was our campaign slogan to let other tacos know to vote for it, and it stuck.
***When doing the lore jam for Yummy Elliot, we made a starboard specifically for it, messages needing 5 peanut emojis to make it to the board. Someone said "Upnut" and it stuck.
****Often not followed by "(positive)" or "(negative)" as it's assumed to be negative, stemming from Yummy Elliott's misuse of the term.
*****Nicholas Vincent's first appearance in #blasebot-events was when she was swept elsewhere during S14 day 9, and someone reacted to the blasebot messaged with "WHO".
