ha, this is a funny question.

Mine is "searching...", previous ones of "mum, click this", and "police surveillance van" are also fun.

There used to be one in my old neighborhood named "Magic Mike".

And I was going for a drive yesterday and can across one named "FinalRestingPlace". I'm guessing it was a cemetery. 👀

In my school when we have huge meetings , people just start discussions using wifi hotspots, we end up with something like:
-yall agree with this?
-nahh
-the lavatory is in need of repair
-who took my bike
-get a better bike
-guys that lavatory

Funniest thing you ever saw 😂😂

in his third university year, at their digs my son and his flatmates had

 tellmywifiloveher 

so for a little while at home here we used
tellmywifiloveher (3G)
tellmyhubilovehim (5G).

We've gone back to manufacturers default, because someone from an Eastern European Secret Service convinced us with the reasons not to stand out

My parental Home is in a remote location and getting a dedicated fibre line to my place was costly enough. There's also a FUP, so the name is "CostlyInternetNotForFree", just to offend neighbours who might be tempted to use the new Fibre in the block.
