funny things to put on the memo of a check

I have a yearly bill that I pay to a friend. For the last couple of years I've written some funny/embarrassing things on the subject line.

'For sexual favors'

'Heroin.....I mean 'legal stuff''

I'm looking for new and witty things to put on the memo line of the next check.

Any ideas?

My EX-BIL wrote a check to my Ex-Wife (his sister) and being the goofball that he is, actually did write "SWEATY SHITBALLS" in the memo.

I hate to be mister killjoy but you better be careful about putting things that sound like actual crimes or threats on a check, most stuff is never seen by a human eye nowadays but a jumpy clerk could cause a world of hurt.

Then LEO might get annoyed at their time being wasted and decide to put you through the ringer too.

This. I've seen wire payments cancelled or seized on account of profanity or questionable references, so be careful what you write. It's a different world nowadays.

This isn't a funny one but a few months ago I wrote "You should be ashamed of yourselves" when our utility company raised their rates.

They probably got a good laugh out of it, tho.

I'd see "For Sexual Favors" in the memo line every now and then when I worked at the credit union.

Saw "boob job", "penis enlargement", stuff like that too.

The one that still makes me wonder was "Sorry about the cow!" I wish the teller had asked questions on that one!

Most recent one, for a non-paltry sum, was for ~$170 worth of anal lube.
