We have for some time had the tradition of naming misdemeanours after housemates who were notable for committing them, as in, "to david the television". So far, we have terms for leaving a pizza in the oven for 24 hours until it turns into a blackened disk of carbon (and by extension, cooking any food until utterly and totally black right through), and more recently, we have a verb meaning "to suck a large item up the hoover, then claim the hoover doesn't work". There is currently competition for this last verb.
