    Guys I actually find the term 'whiteboard' racist and offensive.

    Can we all start referring to them as 'penboards' instead from now on please.

    It is a board and it is white, therefore: whiteboard

    In school, they are supposed to be "frontboards" for this very reason. In some of our classrooms, a second board is located on the side of the room - presumably these will now be "sideboards"?

    Schools close to harbours can have "Quayboards" (see what I did there). Any further contributions most welcome.

    We donated one of our old ones to a school in Afghanistan. It is now a bullet-in-board.

    Lol, of course it was a joke, an allusion to 'chalkboards'. I guess it's a sign of what our society is like that people actually thought I was being serious.

    Thanks for the neg rep btw. (another example of sarcasm right there)

    any good stationary shop does them!
    No. All the shops local to me are stationary and very few of them sell stationery, never mind small whiteboards.

    My sailing club has one of those, but it also has a secondary transparent one on the ceiling so you can see the sky at night.

    It's called the starboard.

    I nearly forgot - in our kitchen we have an enclosed one from which we hang cups by their handles. Needless to say it is called a cupboard.

    And all our family's credit card passwords are attached to the PINboard.

    I have a means of seeing stars at home, but without the hole in the ceiling. It comes in a glass and is called port.

    Well, in our bathroom we have a small one where we keep the first aid kit. It's called the plasterboard.

    So, at this point I think you're leading 3:2. Or at least that's what it says here on the scoreboard...
