A phrase taken from a popular joke. To say someone is "in the barrel" or "taking a turn in the barrel" means it's their turn to do an unpleasant task or to suffer an unpleasant experience. The joke is as follows:
A sailor on a Navy ship had been out to sea for weeks, and was beginning to go through sex withdrawals. Fed up with the lack of sex, he asked one of his shipmates what he did when the pressure was too much to take.
"Well, there's a barrel with a hole in it near the mop storage. When it gets to be too much for us, we use that."
So the sailor went over to the barrel and decided to give it a go. Finding it was better than he'd expected, he began using it regularly, and his problems seemed to vanish.
After a couple of weeks, his commanding officer began to take notice, and said, "You seem to be a lot more relaxed. What's your secret?"
The sailor, embarrassed to give a straight answer, simply said he'd been getting better rest.
"Well good, sailor. You're going to need it," replied the officer. "Today's your turn in the barrel."

The state of anticipating or expecting sexual intercourse from a social encounter, be it a date, a party, or a booty call
. It describes a period of optimistic waiting that is just shy of a sure thing
A: Girl, you gonna give him some?
B: I don't know, but he's sexpecting.
On the ride home from that date, the sexpectation was killing me!
Just because you sexpect something doesn't mean you're getting it.
Someone who gives every appearance of being homosexual
, but is in fact heterosexual
. A fauxmosexual male may display metrosexual attention to hygiene, style, and culture, have an effeminate speech pattern or display effeminate behavoir in gesticulation and mannerism, and/or give the basic impression of being gay
. A faumosexual female may be fairly butch
in appearance and style, display a militant feminist ("feminazi
") attitude toward men, or show strong proclivities toward Lilith Fair
or other female empowerment. These are the people you "just know" are gay, but who seem to show proof to the contrary.
People say that Tom Cruise is gay, but I think he's just a fauxmosexual.
I work with this guy who wears nuthugger jeans and talks with a total San Fran lisp, but apparently he's not actually a fag; he's just a fauxmosexual.
I totally thought Liz was a dyke because of her shaved head and leather, but I met her boyfriend yesterday. Talk about textbook fauxmosexual.
If I throw a dog a bone, I don't want to know if it tastes good or not. And if you ever interrupt me whilst I'm walking, I'll cut your fucking jacobs off!
1. n. Short for "grandmother," used informally.
2. v. To throw an object by holding it in both hands and pitching it underhand, generally while bending the knees. Used often when referring to a style of throwing a basketball for those too weak or innacurate to make it to the hoop.
3. n. Short for "Granny Smith," a type of apple.
1. Are we going to see Granny? She makes awesome potato salad.
2. If you can't make a free throw regularly, man, just granny it up there. It's just a pickup game.
3. Man, that was a good granny I just ate there.
Aww, man... I just let a hard fart go, and now I've got to throw out my new underwear!
You should check your drawers, man. That sounded like a hard fart to me.
Bucho was originally a general insult for someone acting like a jerk
, but has become a catch-all term used to indicate cameraderie (see man
). Generally directed toward a masculine person or thing, and may also be construed as "big man
" (such as the villain from Desperado).
"Bucho" is apparently used in both Portuguese and Spanish to mean "pig fat," and is a cooking term not unlike "lard," which would make sense for the big man
definition of the word, as in Desperado and "Fat Bucho," the large, bald, black 3rd level boss in the original Nintendo
game Kung Fu.
What's up, bucho?
Sorry about that, bucho. I didn't mean to upset you.
