meaning to pass off a less than perfect item, either physical or metaphorical, as though it were good.
Example 1: I asked a friend to loan me a lighter but he palmed me a dead one. (Meaning the lighter didn’t work)

Its origin are uncertain but date back to at least the Childers Muster (Rodeo) of 1997 where it is attributed to Truckin' Trev.

The phrase has been bastardized to be used in circumstances with similar meanings to the original.

Example 2: My housemate said her friend would show me a good time but it turned out she was trying to palm me a dead one. (In this case it means the opposite of a “live one”, that is, the friend was boring or dull or frigid)

Example 3: The salesman said the DVD would play on all players but he had palmed me a dead one. (meaning that the DVD wouldn’t play or was blank)

Example 4: I asked my roommate to get me some milk for my coffee but she palmed me a dead one. (Meaning the carton/bottle was empty or out of date)

The phrase is not to be mistaken for any similar phrases use in the United States relating to slipping someone a bribe. That is palming someone a “dead president”, referring to the faces of dead presidents on the notes.

Whether it be bulbs, pipes, lighters, DVDs, food etc friends don’t palm friends dead ones. Ever!

This is a phrase use in drug culture relating to taking one dose orally and another anally at the same time. The intent is that the absorbtion rate is different between the two methods and the effects differ giving a different total effect.
Its origins started with people inserting ecstasy pills in their backside (or plugging) to get a different effect and supposedly a faster hit due to the direct transfer to the blood stream because of the large number of capilliaries.

The term has broadened to include any drug when taken through both orifices at the same time.
The name comes from the song by "The Bangles", "Walk Like an Egyption" where people pointed a hand outwards from their head and there backside to look like people depicted in ancient egyptian artworks. Hence the reverse egyption is a hand inwards to the head and backside or mouth and anus. It origin is from Scooter in Brisbane, Australia, 2008.
1. When the pills are weak I might double drop but Janey goes the reverse egyption.
2. Mary doesn't like to go the reverse egyption, she says plugging spoils her bottom fun.
3. Bob likes the reverse egyption, he says they come on faster and the high is higher.
4. Uncle Pete was complaining that he had to get the reverse egyption every day for a week at the nursing home.
