An exceptionally terrible musical performance. After Yoko Ono, an utterly talentless performance artist who never would have been allowed anywhere near a recording studio but for her association with the late Beatle, John Lennon.
How was the Good Charlotte show last night?
Really bad. I mean, like, Yoko bad!

A person who has become famous for predicting apocalyptic, world-ending scenarios that never actually happen. This person continues to remain well-respected even after it has become obvious that none of their predictions will ever come true. An example would be Paul Erlich, author of "The Population Bomb" (1968), warning of mass starvation in the 1970's and 1980's due to overpopulation. Professor Erlich holds an endowed chair at Stanford University and has received countless awards in spite of the fact that his entire career has been based on complete bullshit. Other threats to our continued existence promoted by teflon prophets include global cooling, acid rain, dioxin, Y2K and currently, global warming- recently rebranded "global climate disruption" by President Obama's science czar John Holdren, who once co-authored a book with, wait for it, Paul Erlich!
Al Gore is a teflon prophet.

A completely unnecessary and meaningless corporate buzz phrase that somehow gets shoehorned into every memo, press release or public statement. It can always be eliminated from the text without any effect at all upon the intended meaning.
"If any member of the New England Patriots organization is close enough to a murder investigation to get arrested, it is too close to an unthinkable act for that person to be part of this organization going forward."- Robert Kraft

A decal depicting an impish adolescent with a mischievous grin displayed on the rear window of a pickup truck. Typically, he is urinating on a Ford logo (if the owner has a Chevy) or a Chevy logo (if the owner has a Ford). Sometimes he is urinating on Osama bin Laden. Other times, he is simply urinating; perhaps with a view toward displaying a general disregard for social norms. These decals are popular in the Redneck community.
We must be in Tennessee by now. Urine boy is everywhere.

The position assumed by President Barack Obama during the National Anthem where the hands are clasped at crotch level, as opposed to placing his right hand over his heart as a patriotic civilians traditionally do. He has been observed doing this on countless occasions, including the memorial service for the people killed at the Fort Hood massacre.
Another tragedy and another memorial service. The military guys are saluting. The civilians have their right hand over their heart. And the President of the United States of America is giving us the crotch salute. What the fuck?

A psychological phenomenon whereby a participant in a poetry slam has an unrealistic opinion of their abilities based upon an enthusiastic response to their work. But in reality, this is because the only people who attend poetry slams are other aspiring poets who will soon be taking the stage and expect a similar response from the rest of the audience. There are variations of this in music and art.
Sharon thinks that she's a really good poet, but it's only because of the poetry slam effect. She's never made any money or performed before an audience of non-poets.

A rhetorical reponse to a political argument about which one disagrees. This term is frequently used by people who host talk radio programs, but almost never by actual, everyday people.
"It's a fair guess that this editorial is part of an organized public affairs pushback, one we know is underway by UVa's third party pressure group colleagues."- Christopher Horner
