Word of the Week

Reaching back for these.

smack talk [smak tawk] v; non-hypothetical, evidence-based derogatory phrases used to kill someone’s self esteem, especially when playing ping-pong at work. “Trash talk is hypothetical, like: Your mama is so fat she can eat the internet. But smack talk is happening, like, right now. Like: You’re ugly and I know it for a fact, ’cause I got the evidence right there.”

shun/un-shun [shuhn/un-shuhn] v; An Amish disciplinary technique that is the equivalent of slapping someone with silence. Un-shunning ends the shun and, thus, the punishment. Depending on the infraction, one can be shunned for a period of weeks to years. “I was shunned from the age of four until my sixth birthday for not saving the excess oil from a can of tuna.”
