Put Some Gay In Your Day, Dallas!

Viva Vocabulary

Websters Schmebsters, good grammar has gone urban. Break free from the chains of overused modifiers like exxxtreme (extra x’s for emphatic emphasis, of course) and embrace your inner hipster.

Urban Dictionary is just the thing to put the super back in your superlatives and have you talking like a trendy toastmaster. You don’t know a thang, if you don’t know the slang – so get to browsing for a new noun or sign up for the “word of the day” to send the sass directly to your inbox.

Here are a few of our faves:

Fire Hazard – a man who is utterly in denial of his homosexuality (in the closet) despite the fact that he is clearly gay to the objective observer (flaming).

Conswervative – a conservative politician or other public figure caught doing things that he has denounced on record (cough, Senator Craig, cough, cough).

Dotcomrade – an Internet acquaintance; someone you chat with but have never actually met.

Madam's Apple – a pun on “Adam's apple,” it refers to the large bulge on the trachea when it occurs on a woman. (Note: this may be the sign of a male-to-female transvestite or transsexual, or may simply be the luck of genetics).

Typeractive – someone who is overly talkative on emails or text messages.

Pregret – the feeling of regretting something you're about to do anyway.
