Zoo stock - when you throw different animals into the same stock pot

We use to call for servers(who never seem to be around when the food sits in the window, drying out, moving from rare to medium under the lamp) - "SSEERRVVEERR!!!". Then we started using similar spounding words, they don't even notice - "Sherbet!", "Pervert!" etc.

I have gotten a lot of response about this from various websites that are, for the most part North American. Anyone know of other English cultural culinary websites from other countries--India, NZ, Aussieland???
