    Smile What is the usage of "mayor of"?

    Hello :D


    "The friend zone" is for a guy who is friend of someone not lover
    and "mayor of the friend zone" is someone who is really into it

    Then, I'm curious if I can use some words with "mayor of" in this way
    like if you win the game, can I say "you are mayor of the Twister"

    You can, but it doesn't sound great.

    Calling someone the "mayor of the Twister" almost works, but not as well as in the "friend zone" case, because Twister isn't really a place like a zone. "Mayor of the friend zone" works because it takes a phrase with the word "zone" and makes zone even more real - as if there really was a place called the friend zone.
