Words you can spell in hex

Do you all remember when we came up with all those words you could fill out on a scantron using a,b,c,d,e. Well I find myself needing to spell words in hex meaning you get an extra letter f. Can you all help me spell things other than dead beef. Words that fall on 32, 16, and 8 bit boundries work the best. ie 8 letter, 4 letter, 2 letter words. If necesarry numbers can work too. 4 a bad dad, etc.

Got one!

How about "touch my monkey please mr. hamburglar", which in hex is 746F7563686D796D6F6E6B6579706C656173656D722E68616D627572676C6172.

Yay, I'm good at this!

OK, OK, some actual ones:

decafbad, baadfeed, baadf00d, c0edbabe, c001d00d, CAFEBABE

(I'll admit it: stole these from various web searches)

Oooh, and here's a chunk more, of varying quality.

Oh, and BTW, looked up the concept behind DEADBEEF; very interesting.

If you like bands from the 80s, you like ABBAACDC
If you prefer R&B, you might like BABEFACE (close enough)
Decca didn't sign the Beatles in 1962. BADDECCA
Janet Jackson FACEDFCC
If Rush Limbaugh had a kid, that would make him a DEAFDADA
I need new furniture because I have a FADEDBED
I bought a taxi, and I got a DEED4CAB
If you plant a flower, you FEEDABEE
If I paint Eddie, I then DEFACEED, but if I did it with quick, light touches, I DABBEDED
Father math: ADDEDDAD

I'm done now.

Gonna tell us what this is for? Or is that SUUUUCREEEETS. Er, I mean secret. I think... my throat is kinda scratchy, so if this was Sucrets, that'd be neat, too.
