I expect US docs have their own version, but I thought it was funny that every specialty has their argot

When I was doing the law thing, the transcription staff (who had to listen to all sorts of depositions and reduce them to text) had a code for the unreliable witness — LLPOF. Stood for “liar liar pants on fire.” Self-interested testimony contrary to the evidence chain was FOS — “full of shit.” Narratives that required an immense belief in bizarre coincidence were “TBs” — Tinkerbells. And so forth.
