    Is it just me, or is this by far the most annoying term ever created in the fandom?

    Do you think the term will ever die?

    Consider this:

    when I hear the term chug it makes me personally think of being at a Keg party and college people screaming the word CHUG over and over as your drink yourself to death upside down and such.

    Why does the fandom continue to name things in such ridiculous ways?

    IMO CHUG is improper anyway since "United" came to be.

    and then soon enough it's going back under the "Universe" banner again...or is it?

    What are your thoughts on this subject?

    The first U already stands for Univverse 2.0. (since nobody sues original Universe figures for classics)

    Agreed.

    If I ever start using that word in regular conversations (even online), I'll probably have to slag my own ass.

    We have this thread. Like 3x over. "Complaining about other peoples favored acronyms that because you don't like it, will it ever die?"

    I guess I missed those threads, as I'm usually roaming the Radicons, Sightings, Feedback, Prime, and movie sections. lol

    I just find it odd the term still hasn't gone away yet. and was curious what others thought about it is all.

    Chug is still around because RTS is easily skipped. Give it a few more name changes and most will revert back to Classics. Now if Hasbro sticks with Generation then CHUG will be around for a loooong while.

    Especially when CHUG threads pop up so often that those that don't know what CHUG is are now exposed to the term.

    You just fed the beast you hate.

    It's only an acronym. We all know what it represents. Of all the things people can't get past. Sheesh...

    Not when you use it in your thread titles, it won't.

    Anyway.

    The far majority of my Classics collection is Takara, so call it what you want, to me it's just HU.

    Until enough letters get added to the acronym that pronouncing it would sound like a Klingon speaking Yiddish after drinking a full quart of heavy buttermilk, ... I'll keep calling 'em "Classics". ;)

    If Hasbro can keep calling it generations for another year or two. Then I think chug may phase out because people will be more familiar with Generations figures then they will be with Universe, Henkei, and classics by that point.

    Might be silly, but at least it's not a racial slur.

    I don't understand why so many people dislike it. It is already established and by saying CHUG everyone knows what you mean. I just find no offense by it and it is an easy acronym. What else should we call it that isn't ridiculously drawn out and too long to say quickly while asking about a certain line? I'm okay with it but I understand many despise it.
