    If we're going to have MILEY, it should surely be:

    Manual Improper Location Emergency Yank.

    But on the REHAB theme, though we have already seen LOHAN in PLAYBOY, perhaps she would be better if remaining SOBER.

    Pulling Lever Activates Yellow-Bellied Overcautious Yank

    Spain Ordinanced Balloon Ejection Relay (though of course not quite technically "relaying")

  126. Captain DaFt

    OK, Last one, I promise.

    In such a dire situation, Obviously what LOHAN needs is a:

    Harness

    Emergency

    Release

    Not Playing...

    I'm not playing anymore. I'm taking my ball (and NIPPLE) home. Hmmfff!

    I spent aged playing with my NIPPLE getting it just right. What's wrong with my NIPPLE?

    Besides it's not just a bodily organ you know...

    TWERK = Trapped Wind Emergency Release Knob

    Except it's a switch and not a bakelite knob :-(

    HOVER = Low Orbit Vehicle Emergency Release system, although I suppose HOVERS could just add a Switch on the end. Either way there's a payload of irony since of course the object of the HOVER switch is to, umm, not hover :-)

    Lastly, we could have a LOVER switch with Low Orbit Vehicle Emergency Release.
