Not sure whether 'brick" is still appropriate because Canon has chopped 5.28 oz (145g) off the new lens. The weight of 24-70 II is not too far off the 24-105.

They dropped the weight by 15%, but one has to pay 71% more for the lens. Perhaps we should call the lens "The Wad", because the $950 USD you have to plop down for this lens over the MKI is certainly a wad of cash.

The lens is still significant at nearly 1/3 more weight than the 24-105L.

Invisible Pink Unicorn? Because I'm just as likely to own one vs the other?

;)

Seriously, I think Brickette or Briquette both work. And Lego Brick is a nice play on the build.

I will probably call it the 24-70 II

Though I like Gold Brick play on the old name and the new price
I also like the Lego Brick Play on the build

Brican = Brick + Canon

Canbrick = Canon + Brick

Monbrick = Monster Brick

Brickon = Brick + ???

or lets give it different name, it is one of my best black zooms, How about "black ons" [as Black ops the game] for example? or blacomon = Back + ZoOM + MONster [a pokemon name, hahaha].
