Rogue Riddle "10-10 on the side"....Surprise Launch

Launching this Rogue early as you will soon see is irrelevant...read on...

The number of this Rogue Riddle "1010" immediately brought me back to the 70's, the pre-cell phone age when CB Radios were King. For those who may not know much about CB's, they were the voice communication tool of truckers like hi-tech walkie-talkies. Then a little later, they caught-on with us "Roller Skaters" (average car drivers).

   As CB users surged, so did their desire to keep their messages secret mainly in an attempt to avoid speeding tickets and stay one step ahead of "County Mounties" (highway patrol). 

Thus evolved the quirky coded and often comical language of CB'ers. And in order to understand what was spoken over the highway airwaves, a car driver who wanted to "join-in" needed to at least learn the basics before any trucker would welcome him/her into their caravan.

Some of the more popular secret numbered codes were: "10-10" which meant "Transmission Completed and Standing By","10-4" meant "Ok, Message Received","10-20" meant "My Location is or What's your Location?" and finally, my favorite, "10-100" meaning "Need to go to Bathroom"

Below, you will see a chart of the most common worded codes along with their meanings.

For this contest, either choose one of the listed CB codes provided below and give it a new clever,witty,funny and/or punny definition OR just invent a brand new code along with its definition.

Whoever creates the overall best code & corresponding definition will be deemed the winner and have the honor of hosting Rogue 10-11 ("Talking too Rapidly").  I will judge and choose which is best and the winner will be announced Tuesday morning.  Send your new CB Terminology with Translation to:  doug10101@...
