Yes both “uncle” and “calf rope” were used and of course you had to “whistle or loose it!” When being given a titty twister...usually by an older cousin. It is not easy to whistle when being given a titty twister!!!

Now a days, you require them to get up early and show up at work closer and closer to 8:00 am, until THEY cry "snowflake".

I've heard it before. I heard "mercy" used in the place of "uncle" more though. Not sure where that started but that's the word to make pain go away apparently.

I'm sure to a lot of millennials, rough housing or wrestling is probably consider bullying, assault, and sexual misconduct.
