Term that refers to one who is a novice, a greenhorn, a student/disciple, a subordinate, or just simply ignorant.

Has its origins from the "Kung Fu" television series from the 1970s, starring David Carradine as the Shaolin priest Kwai Chang Caine. As a young student at the Shaolin temple, Caine, in his youthful ignorance, takes pity on a blind Shaolin master, believing the master's blindness to be a terrible affliction. The master quickly corrects Caine, illustrating that despite his blindness, his awareness of the world is much higher than Caine's -- for example, the master takes notice of the grasshopper at Caine's feet whereas Caine does not.

From that moment on, the blind master befriends Caine and becomes a mentor to him. He gives Caine the nickname of "Grasshopper" in an affectionate reference to this first encounter.
Person 1: I've never played Guitar Hero before. How do you play?

Person 2: Ah, watch and learn, Grasshopper ...

From the combination of "hypocrite" (one who does not practice what they preach) and "Christian".

A Hypochristian is a person who claims to be an upstanding "moral" Christian, but passes all sorts of judgment on anyone who doesn't think EXACTLY like they do.
My family is a bunch of Hypochristians; they nearly disowned me when I chose to come out to them.

To verbally mock or shut someone down in a comedic way.

It is somewhat akin to a diss in hip-hop culture.

Usually refers to any style of (usually) tight-fitting cotton shirts primarily worn by men as undershirts. Any of the types of white t-shirt or tank top that you can usually find sold in packages by the men's underwear can be classfied as a wifebeater.

While the "wifebeater" is worn primarily by men -- and presumably got the name because it is most often depicted as being worn as outerwear by men who beat their wives -- lots of women have taken to wearing them too. This is particularly true in the case of the cotton ribbed tank top, which can now be found sold as outerwear for women as well as men, and which can also be found in several other colors besides white.
Yuck ... see that dude in the wifebeater over there? His chest hair is, like, sticking out all over the place!
