   I know it's a trailer, and you all, being on a bike group, know it's a
trailer.
   Anybody have a snappy comeback for people who call my bike trailer a
"cart," or worse yet, a "wagon?"

To some people "trailer" means "home".

Wagons have four wheels.
Cart can be a verb.
Trailers with long bent tongues attached to the seat post can often be
used as convenient hand carts.

You call it a trailer, he calls it a cart. It doesn't matter as long
as it comes when you call.

"Buggy" is the one that bugs me.

Just tell 'em you have a single-wide attached to your bike. They'll be
deeply impressed.
