I was amused when a girlfriend recently referred to her boyfriend as bed heroin - meaning, sexual expertise that is so good that one just cannot get enough.
In her honor, I decided to submit it as an entry to Urban Dictonary. As a family law attorney, I sometimes deal with the seamier side of peoples' lives and all too often someone will say, "He/She called me a [fill in the blanks]!" Or, "I caught him/her ******-ing!" and I have no clue as to what they mean.
Indeed, sometimes it is even here on my blog. Recently, one priest in Utah suggested that I "PK" my pastor's "WoW character" because he would not allow the ringing of Sanctus bells. Huh? A short time later, I went to Urban Dictionary and discovered that what he was suggesting was that I "player kill" my pastor's "World of Warcraft character.
Urban Dictionary works like Wikipedia, only it is meant for slang terms. Think now - some can be rather obscure, especially when they are contained by region or subculture. Let's not be shy - maybe some of the terms are rough, obscene, or just plain scatalogical, but it is as my old Russian teacher at NYU would reason, that she had to teach us the "dirty words" because she did not want to see us being insulted by a Soviet and standing there grinning like an idiot because we did not have a clue as to what they were saying. So too when you hear something that makes you scratch your head . . . and especially if it is coming from the mouths of your children, most notably your teenage children. Know what they are up too!
And priests . . . you are not always going to get Tony Soprano in the confessional saying he "whacked" someone, so if that is the extent of your knowledge of euphemisms for various sins, you need to bookmark this site as well.
 But not before I emailed my priest and asked, "What is this, some kind of secret patois that they teach you in seminary? D'ya get a decoder ring, too?" See? It is a secret language . . . between geeks. Fr. Erik, next time you're in town, why don't you and Fr. John head over to Fry's for a little fun. Take my husband - he wears the propeller beanie, too. Dilberts! Not to be confused with eschatological. My favorite being, "ёб твою мать." Don't ask. However, it is anthropologically interesting, so from an academic viewpoint, it is worth knowing. Google it at your own risk.
