brand brand brand
n. Humorous catch-phrase from BartleMUD
which players were described carrying a list of objects, the most
common of which would usually be a brand. Often used as a joke in
as in "Fred the wizard is here, carrying brand ruby
brand brand brand kettle broadsword flamethrower". A brand is a
torch, of course; one burns up a lot of those exploring dungeons.
Prob. influenced by the famous Monty Python "Spam" skit.
