A mid-length, fluffyish mullet associated with hockey players, especially those from Canada and Eastern Europe in the 1990s. Compare football hair.

A term created by sex columnist and liberal Dan Savage in the wake of the 2004 Presidential Election to describe the concentration of the political left in the United States near major cities and college towns in terms of islands of diversity in a sea of conformity. The implication is that the islands have their own interests to attend to and should disregard the sea.

It is thought that this exists because rural communities tend to be more isolated from other cultures than urban communities, and because people tend to leave the rural world for an education in urban areas and not go back.

A popular beverage drunk late at night in Chinatowns across the US and Canada; not to be confused with iced tea. Commonly the tea drunk is of unusual origins, such as St. Louis or Milwaukee, sometimes even Toronto. One peculiarity of such tea is that it often seems to be carbonated; the secret for doing this seems to be widely known, but has never been revealed.
3 AM. Miserable rainy night and the late-night diner is closed for renovations this week. Time to head over to Harrison Ave for some cold tea.
