The Urban Dictionary

Tonight's blog entry was going to be a rant about the US Congress and how they make too much money, get too many kick-backs from lobbyists, and get too many perks. I began ranting and realized I need to do a bit more research before I go off on that topic. So, just FYI, that post will be coming soon. Soon as in, "When the kids allow me the time to research said topic."

Until then, let me tell you about this fun Web site, the Urban Dictionary. I found it through a separate Web site, trying to find the definition for a really nasty term. A term I can't mention here because some of my readers have sensitive eyes. If you're truly wondering about the term of which I type, e-mail me and I'll tell you. Otherwise, use your imagination. The Urban Dictionary is a Wikipedia-type site that allows users to define modern slang. Let me tell you, there are some doozies! Whew! Stuff I wouldn't even think of and stuff that makes me blush! Then, there are funny slang words and definitions that make you snort. Check these out:

Space Shuttle Door Gunner - A humorous reference to rear echelon personnel (US Air Force) who like to talk up how much combat experience they have. - Yeah, that Jack is a real hero. Ask him about his tour as a Space Shuttle Door Gunner if you want to shut him up.

Elevision - The act of people in an elevator staring up, uncomfortably, at the numbers as they light up when the car moves. Practiced out of nervousness.

Mouse arrest - Getting grounded from the computer.

Butt dial - When your cell phone, while on your person, accidentally calls someone.

Baby Bear - When something is "just right" - not too hot or too cold, not too big or too small, etc. - Are you hungry? Naw man... I'm baby bear!

Ignoranus - A person who is not only ignorant, but also an a**hole. (Like most politicians!)

Anyhoo, sorry for the short post. It's late, J-man is fussy, I'm tired, and the laundry needs folding!
