Terminology–Tomato vs. Tomahto

CO Sister id tag

“No—Stop—Wait! Don’t put that on my refinished wood table/counter/desk.  Put something under it.”  So the something is highly debated around our house.  It might be the closest magazine, letter, napkin, bib, or whatever. (Yes, I’ve seen it be fresh laundry!) Something slides under the offensively dripping glass and is supposed to make everything alright.  Oh cont-rare!

Sister and I are actually selling a pattern to make such a something-that-goes-under-device but the point is — what do you call it?

Coasters 010

Crocheted Coaster = Granny’s words

Saucer=Queen Mum’s term

final hexagon mug rug croppedMug Rug=DIY’er slang

So the reader poll begins…what do YOU call it?  What is the strangest one you’ve seen used?  Is it really necessary? (Guess who added the last question…he shall remain nameless to protect his identity.) But please protect my table!
