Fizzbuzzdingcrash
Fizzbuzzdingcrash is an extended form of the traditional mathsteacher's method of torture, a game named 'Fizzbuzz' whereby the players (going round in a circle) count. The counting's the easy bit: any number that contains the digit 3 or is divisible by 3 is instead uttered as 'fizz', and any number that contains the digit 5 or is divisible by 5 is uttered as 'buzz'. Hence, the game would begin: One, two, fizz, four, buzz, fizz, seven, eight, fizz, buzz ... and so on. Fifteen, of course, becomes fizzbuzz, as do 30, 35, 53 and so on.
Fizzbuzzdingcrash (as you will have guessed) extends the principle, such that 7 is replaced by 'ding' and prime numbers are replaced by 'crash'  a suitably enjoyable or mindbending challenge, depending on your perspective.
One, crash, fizzcrash, four, buzzcrash, fizz, dingcrash, eight, fizz, buzz, crash, fizz, fizzcrash ...
1753, naturally enough, becomes fizzbuzzdingcrash, if you get that far. There may well be smaller primes which qualify, but we haven't checked.
