Helau!

Helau is the word used for greeting people in Düsseldorf during die fünfte Jahreszeit. Cheery and slur-proof, people love to sing it out, arms raised in the direction of their exhortation. As a bonus, it is even easy to remember... although maybe that is because there's a few hundred years of practice behind the only slightly vowel-modified... Hallo.

candy may be dandy, but liquor sure is quicker
