Yu-Shiang Whole Fish
/yoo-shyang hohl fish/ An obsolete name for the Greek character gamma (extended SAIL ASCII code 9, Unicode glyph 0x0263) which with a loop in its tail looks like a little fish swimming down the page.
The term is actually the name of a Chinese dish in which a fish is cooked whole (not parsed) and covered with Yu-Shiang (or Yu-Hsiang) sauce.
Used primarily by people on the MIT LISP Machine, which could display this character on the screen.
Tends to elicit incredulity from people who hear about it second-hand.
