We call out sandwich maker the “tzzzzz” because that’s what it sounds like.
It sounds very funny when we make other people sandwiches and we say, “Hey, just plug in the tzzzzz, okay?”
We ALSO say lupper. And brupper for when we have pancakes for supper or something.
Then there’s FFY for Fend For Yourself dinner night (but that’s not my family, that’s my cousins who I stay with in the summer).
