+ - What all can I spell in a mac address?

Creatively querying aspell, I came up with 346 words I also allowed 0 and 1 because, well, they look like o and l.

The following will give the complete list: /usr/bin/strings /usr/lib/aspell-0.60... |... grep -v -i [g-k] | grep -v -i [m-n] | grep -v -i [p-z] | grep -v '*' | tr [A-Z] [a-z] | uniq

More interesting ones (to me anyway) include:
offloaded, accolade, oddball, bobble, baffled, beefed, blob, boldfaced, fable, facade, faded, cocoa, coal, coldblooded, deaf, flooded, loco, lead, and doodad."
