I am at the Gaylord Opryland Hotel and Convention Center.

Really impressive place, has whole gardens inside (many many different places to eat and meet/etc).

But I am wondering what it has to do with Funko?

It means just say no when they ask you to bow and grasp your ankles.

When I was at primary school (age 5-11), so at least 20 years ago, gaylord was a generic insult. I guess homosexuality related but I don't know if we really understood that then.

I think back then gay itself was a pretty generic insult with no homosexual connotations...

Funko

Also popular back then was "you've got AIDs".

I don't think The Warriors would be afraid of the Almighty Gaylords.

My father used to work for the Opryland Hotel in Nashville. He even setup the groundwork for the hotels in Texas and Florida. Then they let him go because he was old and crippled. :( Of course now he makes more than 2x as much as a COO elsewhere.

Which one are you at, JM?

GAYLORD
Gender: Masculine

Usage: English

Pronounced: GAY-lord [key]

From a surname which was derived from Old French gaillard "high-spirited".

I can imagine that name has distinctly fallen out of favour ;)

Chief Operating Officer. It really just a step down from CEO. His job is basically to run the show.
