Hi all,

Before the weekend is over, I'll be submitting Urban Dictionary: Fularious
Street Slang Defined.  I've read through it, fixing scannos and adding
notes to typos,  and already done much of the clean up, but need one of you
deranged perfectionists out there to help finish it up.  Summary is below.
 Feel free to write me off list if you'd like to proof this one.


From shazbot, an expression used when something makes you mad ("Shazbot, I
just locked my keys in the car,") to crunk, for crazy drunk ("We about to
get crunk tonight,") Urban Dictionary covers the language that encompasses
the trials and tribulations that anyone under 30 encounters-and leaves
everyone over 30 scratching their heads but wanting to know more.

Among urbandictionary.com's lively lexicon are:
business provocative - Professional or semi-professional attire used to
provoke sexual attention in the workplace.
compunicate - To chat with someone in the same room via an instant
messenging service instead of speaking to them out loud, in person.
dandruff - A person who "flakes out" and ditches their friends, usually for
an insufficient reason.
deck - Hipster lingo for "cool."
dime - A very attractive person; a perfect ten.
hulk out - To become enraged.
wingman - A guy who takes one for the team by hooking up with a hot girl's
ugly friend so his own friend can hook up with the hot girl.

Perfect for those who want to pick up some new slang and those who want to
translate it, Urban Dictionary is a gritty and witty look at our
ever-changing language.
