A "Manchester" is the act of calling a friend or acquaintance on a statement they made. When a person states definitively that they will perform an action, anyone within earshot can call "Manchester!"
After the call, the callee must either perform the act or receive a swift punch in the stomach.
Originated at Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology on BSB 1 in 2008-2009.
