2.
What a company calls their cheap-labored employees to make them feel like they are important when in fact they don't mean sh*t to them because they have no power at all.
I can't believe that the largest company in the world still calls their $7 slaves "associates"... like they have something to do with the company's management...

5.
Formed by two founder members of the HFPC (Ches and Fin) along with Pricey, the Beserker and Moist in 1999, it was decided that the word of carnage needed to be spread unto the uneducated masses of the North.
Following Gillingham FC to such salubrious locations in England such as Preston,Blackpool,Nottingham,Stoke, Millwall etc, the Associates breathed new life into the decaying art of Football Hooliganism, excessive drinking, violence, vandalism and bugle practice.
The Associates finest moments would involve such tear-jerkers as the ransacking of the Boyce hotel, Pricey being arrested for mooning the riot police, Beserker doing a whole bag in one hit, Fin armed with 2 pool cues and bottles in the town centre, and Ches wrecking the phone box then laying out the bloke queueing at McDonalds late at night. Halcyon days.
God bless us all.
"Who set fire to that effigy of Sean Gregan at Preston on the terraces?"

"That'll be the Associates again".

Greeeeeeeeeeeeeegan You fucking cuntbag!
