Pitting themselves as the "slang dictionary that you wrote," the Web site is chock full of words invented to describe everything from the current presidential election (I Bush Doctrined him) to embarrassing social faux pas (The dude has lego hair).
For your pleasure, I've listed some of my favorites below. If you need a good laugh or just want to figure out what the heck the kiddies are saying these days, I recommend perusing the site for bit (I mean, what else are you going to do? Work? Ha!).
Designated Texter: a passenger who reads and replies to any and all text messages received on the driver's phone, thus allowing the driver to focus on the road and not hit anything or get pulled over for reckless driving.
Example: "Hey dude, text back my chick and tell her we'll be there in five minutes. I have to concentrate."
Manicorn: a mythical male creature who is successful (re: pursuing his passion and can pay his electric bills/rent), funny, chivalrous, masculine (re: not chauvinistic), adventurous, artistic (re: not suicidal).
Example: See any John Cusack movie
October Surprise: when, in a last minute effort to become re-elected, a political figure happens upon a bit of "lucky coincidence."
(Note: This is distinguished from a regular question because the answer is usually obvious)
The Spousal We: The opposite of the royal "we," meaning you. Used by your significant other to get you to do something.
Example: "We should clean the bathroom today" or "We should really kill that freakishly large spider in the bathroom."
Hurrication: Evacuation from a major hurricane turned into a short holiday.
Example: During Ike, we took a three-day hurrication to Dallas.
Mis-wave: To return a wave to someone you think is waving at you, but is actually waving to the person behind you. Usually results in embarrassment and introversion.
Example: "(Waving) Oh hey Helen, I was just...oh shoot, that's not Helen (walks away in shame)."
Chairdrobe: The art of piling clothes on a chair to be used in place of a closet or dresser. If a chair is not available one can always defer to a floordrobe.
Example: "I searched through my chairdrobe for something to wear tonight."
