 for laser chicken
From The Jargon File (version 4.4.7, 29 Dec 2003) :

  laser chicken
   n.
  
      Kung Pao Chicken, a standard Chinese dish containing chicken, peanuts, and
      hot red peppers in a spicy pepper-oil sauce. Many hackers call it laser
      chicken for two reasons: It can zap you just like a laser, and the sauce
      has a red color reminiscent of some laser beams. The dish has also been
      called gunpowder chicken.
  
      In a variation on this theme, it is reported that some Australian hackers
      have redesignated the common dish ?lemon chicken? as Chernobyl Chicken. The
      name is derived from the color of the sauce, which is considered bright
      enough to glow in the dark (as, mythically, do some of the inhabitants of
      Chernobyl).
