recently popularized in the show jericho season 1 finale when a story is told of a time in Bastone when General Anthony McAuliff responded to the Germans' order to surrender with a one-word reply: "Nuts." (see The Battle of The Bulge)
General McAuliff said this at the battle of the bulge during ww2. After receiving a message asking for the American's surrender at Bastogn, the General simply replied "nuts". The Germans had no idea what this meant but basically meant "go to hell"
"We request your unconditional surrender."
