    New Words for 2008

    An excellent phrase for an overweight person.

    A deeply unattractive person.

    Waving your arms around and talking bollocks.

    Sitting round in a group, discussing why a deadline was missed or a
    Project failed, and who was responsible.

    A manager who flies in, makes a lot of noise, craps on everything, and
    Then leaves.

    The process by which people seem to absorb success and advancement by
    sucking up to the boss rather than working hard.

    The experience of spending an entire day swimming upstream only to get
    screwed and die.

    * CUBE FARM.
    An office filled with cubicles.

    When someone yells or drops something loudly in a cube farm, and
    people's heads pop up over the walls to see what's going on. (This also

    applies to applause for a promotion because there may be cake.)

    * SITCOMs.
    Single Income, Two Children, Oppressive Mortgage. What yuppies turn
    into when they have children and one of them stops working to stay home
    with the kids or start a "home business".

    * SINBAD.
    Single working girls. Single income, no boyfriend and desperate.

    One who has bleached/dyed her hair but still has a 'black box'.

    The fine art of whacking the crap out of an electronic device to get it
    to work again.

    The rarefied organisational layers beginning just above the rank and
    file. Decisions that fall from the "adminisphere" are often profoundly
    inappropriate or irrelevant to the problems they were designed to
    solve. This is often affiliated with the dreaded "administrivia" - needless
    paperwork and processes.

    Entering a fast food restaurant with no intention of buying food,
    you're just going to the bog. If challenged by a pimply staff member,
    your declaration to them that you'll buy their food afterwards is known
    as a McShit with Lies.

    * 404.
    Someone who's clueless. From the World Wide Web error message "404 Not
    Found" meaning that the requested document could not be located.

    Similar to a French Kiss, but given down under.

    * OH - NO SECOND.
    That minuscule fraction of time in which you realize that you've just
    made a BIG mistake (e.g. you've hit 'reply all').

    A very short skirt, only an inch from the hare.

    A young man of substandard intelligence, the typical adolescent who
    works in a burger restaurant. The 'no-stars' comes from the badges
    displaying stars that staff at fast-food restaurants often wear to show
    their level of training.

    The contents of a Wonderbra, i.e. extremely impressive when viewed from
    The outside, but there's actually naught in there worth seeing.

    A bath so hot, that when lowering yourself in, you go: "Oo! Oo! Oo!
    Aa! Aa! Aa!".

    The bus that arrives at the pub on Friday night while you're in the
    Toilet after your 10th pint, and whisks away all the unattractive people so
    the pub is suddenly packed with stunners when you come back in.

    The taxi that arrives at your place on Saturday morning before you wake
    up, whisks away the stunner you slept with, and leaves a 10-Pinter in your
    bed instead.

    * BEER COAT.
    The invisible but warm coat worn when walking home after a booze cruise
    At 3:00am.

    The invisible device that ensures your safe arrival home after booze
    cruise, even though you're too drunk to remember where you live, how
    you got here, and where you've come from.

    Your first pee in the pub, usually after 2 hours of drinking. After
    breaking the seal of your bladder, repeat visits to the toilet will be
    required every 10 or 15 minutes for the rest of the night.

    * TART FUEL.
    Bottled premixed spirits, regularly consumed by young women.

    A woman whose knickers are too small for her, so she looks like she's
    Got 4 buttocks.

  6. Read all of them before... Last year actually.. November or something?

    Nick Savage...

    "If a woman wearing jeans walks alone in the forest...does she still think her bum looks big?"

    Nope :) She feels sexy, secure and confident! (I live on 11 acres, and I wear whatever... And being in a place of no judgement or worries.. It's good!!!)
  7. The whole list has been around for a decade...
    That makes it no less relevent now than it was then
