Verb: A child abuse strategy employing a phone book as a "protective" pad between the victim and a wrench. When used the phone book technique will result in severe internal injuries which don't photograph well, and are therefore less likely to be used against you in court. The over-all result is a more grievous and a more private injury.
I'm pretty drunk, but I still don't want to go back to jail. I guess I'll have to phone book my redheaded step kids.
