mayor’s cell
 n.— «The mayor’s cell served kind of as “camp counselor,” handing out keys to rooms and making sure chow was served on time. My BC turned out to be the mayor, explaining how my ass got dragged down there.…the Mayor’s cell had to deal pretty closely with the units coming in and out of theater, so that they could be sure they would have enough rooms and such.…Units would come in, and the mayor’s cell would bounce it off their schedule of arrivals. The unit wouldn’t be on it and the mayor’s cell folks would get all huffy.» —“Crashing the Party” by Pete C. Usenet: alt.folklore.military May 26, 2000. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
