I know a lot of people who refer to Wal-Mart as "Wally World," and the
term is meant affectionately. Ditto "Mickey D's" for McDonald's.
My wife refers to Thanksgiving as "Turkey Day" or "T-Day," and she
isn't being ornery, either.
People shorten, whether in print or in voice. That's why I go by
"Chas" instead of "Charles." I hated "Chuck" and"Chucky" and
"Chuckles" and "Chucky-Baby" and "Charlie" and "Charlie Brown." I
actually complained, however. So far, Wal-Mart nor McDonald's not
Thanksgiving have voiced a complaint.
