1.
Statement of extreme disgust or hatred by which one wishes harm on another.

I don't understand, 'Die in a fire'."

4.
Systems of 'self defense' taught by marginally skilled instructors that have little practical application in real world situations; so named because McMartial Arts dojos or dojangs offer a relatively cheap, low quality 'product' and are often found in the same strip malls as fast food restaurants. McMartial Arts instructors typically focus on flashy, relatively useless, moves and tournament competitions, while offering their students rapid belt advancement that fails to reflect their true skill level.

5.
Aa microwaveable meal of cheese and meat wrapped up in a flaky crust that was first introduced in 1983. Hot pockets became famous for their "crisping sleve" which allowed the pocket crust to become crispy in the microwave, and for their repetitive advertising jingle consisting of just the words "Hot Pocket".

Interest in Hot Pockets had a revival of sorts with a comedy routine where Jim Gaffigan talks about his love-hate relationship with this less-than-healthy food product.
What was the idea behind Hot Pockets? Was there a marketing meeting somewhere, "Hey I got an idea: How about we take a Pop-Tart and fill it with really nasty meat? You could cook it in a sleeve thing, dunk it in a toilet."
