You owe me a Jackingtontonton

When something costs ten dollars, the cool person will say, “That jive cost me a hamilton.” Or even, “it bust me out a hammy.”

If something costs sixteen dollars, that would be called a “Hamilington” (for Hamilton, Lincoln, Washington)

Twenty-three dollars is a Jackingtontonton. Note the repeated “ton” three times.

The rule is that you always start with the larger denomination and go down. Something that costs seven dollars would never be called a Washwashcoln. Rather it’s a Lintonton.

I assure you Matty, no one “cool” is saying “it bust me out a hammy” unless you are at Dennys and those acronyms are much too cumbersome to remember! too many syllables.
