Hawaiian for "Thank you". Quite possibly the funniest thing I have ever heard in my life was, while I was sitting in a Burger King in Waikiki and an older woman was talking to this little boy and said:

"Put the mahalo in the mahalo can sweety".

We just about died laughing. The reason it is funny is because Mahalo is printed on the little swinging garbage can lids at all the fast food joints just like "Thank You" is here on the mainland, and the lady thought it meant garbage...

I guess you just had to be there... :P
