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.”

Vocab Word of the Week

kegger and I are starting a new Are You Me? feature: the word of the week. Each week, we’ll post a new term, word, or phrase taken from a television show. For the inaugural edition, y’all get two words. You lucky people.

piss jitters [pis jit-erz] n; 1. a shivery feeling you get when you pee; 2. a strong feeling of imminent misfortune or danger; the creeps. “If someone said something to me about my family, it’d give me the piss-jitters, but I’d ask them about it, not hide in a kitchen.”

rehymenated [re-hahy-muh-n-eyt-ed] v; becoming a virgin again after being rescued from hell by an angel and having all your old scars and injuries healed. “Brother, I have been rehymenated. And the Dude does not abide.”
