A dictionary used to document Middle Eastern slang.
I would be completely lost reading Turban Dictionary.
A friend/associate of a more popular, charismatic person. The sidekick gains most of his/her acclaim from merely being connected so closely to the more powerful acquaintance. Sidekicks can be found anywhere from comic books (where the term began) to the workplace and schoolyard.
Neil: Is Dan really that popular a guy? Most people in the office just talk to him because he's Ron's little sidekick.
Gina: The two of them are inseperable, you have to give them that.
Neil: Oh, I'll give that little Dan something he won't soon forget!
Bartholomew: Like the Baxter Account?
Fooled, conned. Often, one who is bamboozled becomes embarrassed.
I've been bamboozled; this sandwich contains the lettuce, ham, and mustard, all right, but the tomatoes are nowehre to be found! This is the last time I ever trade lunches with Brock...
32nd U.S. president, famous for guiding his country through the Great Depression (with the institution of the programs that made up the New Deal) and the second world war. The only president to be elected to more than two terms, Roosevelt was voted into office four times. He served about one year of his fourth term before dying in office. Many people were unaware of his polio during his presidency. Known as 'FDR'.

Able to convert one's thoughts and emotions into words. Those who are articulate can use large, 'higher-level' words in their sentences without making a conscious effort to do so.
Just because somebody types without proper grammar doesn't make them inarticulate; after all, why does it matter whether or not you waste your time trying to add proper punctuation.
A genuinely hilarious show on Nickelodeon in the mid-1990s. 'RML' was an ingenious parody of 1990s life, poking fun at big businesses, coffee shops, credit cards, and many other things. Since it was on a children's network, the show's creators had to throw in some 'potty jokes,' as much of the show's true humor was too highbrow for the average ten year-old.
Rocko's Modern Life still airs on Nicktoons TV, but I don't think that very many people receive that channel.
