    Alternate forms of calling some the Big Cheese.

    Discussion in 'Word Mechanics' started by doggiedude, Oct 12, 2016.

    I have a character with an important father. Since the main character is the Junior, I'm getting tired of switching between calling the father -- His father / my father /etc or variations of Jason Senior.
    In my quest for variety, I've found several ways the kid can refer to the man in a sarcastic manner but some of the terms would be out of place for a society a few thousand years in the future and not on Earth.

    I've had to reframe from calling him Mayor McCheese, The Big Galoo, and The Grand Poo-Ba.

    Choices I've found that work are:
    The Grand Muckety-muck
    The Grand Wizard
    The Lion King
    The Big Cheese
    The Imperial Asshole Himself
    Lord High Holyness
    Dad

    So ... I'm looking for more of these types of idioms. Anyone have suggestions?
