    -nator

    In a Falafel restaurant, a guy says to one of the staff:

    "So you are the Falafelnator"

    What is the meaning of the suffix "nator" here?

    Thanks

    Hello,

    I am not a teacher, but maybe it is just a joke, like Terminator for example.

    Cordially,

    Yes, I think it's a joke too. So he means may be "a Falafel maker"?

    Yes, that would seem likely.
