At the hair salon, Mary and the other older women commented on what a "buffed stallion" the UPS Driver was and how they would love to have one-night with him.
A person who values their time and hates having to go shopping. "In and out" is the only way they know how to shop, regardless of quantity of items. A power shopper might come across as aggressive and impatient, but they know what they want and where their items are, hence, they see no reason to stroll and dilly-dally and feign that they are thinking of what they want or need to buy.
Power shoppers are known to fill a grocery basket to half-full in under two-minutes. In stores with narrow aisles, they park their cart at the end of the aisle and jog into the aisle, get what they need and toss their items into their baskets from three feet away. They take great pride in always making the basket and never breaking any items.
The man ran his cart into Trader Joe's and began tossing bananas, bags of nuts, loaves of bread and a dozen Clif Bars into his cart. A slow-witted snowbird refused to step aside when he said "excuse me," so he spun around the woman like an NFL tailback, tossed his frozen veggies into his cart and headed back toward the cash register.
A senior citizen commented to her husband, "Did you see how rude that man was?"
The old husband commented, "Nah. He's not rude. He was polite. He said 'Excuse me.' The lady taking up the aisle... who didn't move, SHE was the rude one. I wish I was still young enough to be a 'power shopper,' in my day, I could power shop with the best of 'em.
A public display of useless, excessive noise usually performed by a burly biker with a beer belly showing off his loud motorcycle in a public display of faux bravado or cheesy machismo.
Bikers who are proud to frequently let their motorcycles wind out are generally insecure and they feel that letting their motorcycles peel out will compensate for an undersized penis.
There are exceptions as sometimes on occasion, even a frail, young college boy will perform a "testosterone fart" to try to impress his friends or hot girls on campus.
The burly, bearded biker showed off his loud Harley as he revved the engine through the quiet town's main drag, as he sped away when the traffic light turned green. The small town folks were not amused.
The girl remarked, "That guy needs his muffler checked!"
The boy replied, "Nah, that was just some biker dude letting loose a 'testosterone fart.'"
A cost effective marketing strategy where two or more companies represent the other firm's non-competing product in various promotions or through referrals.
At the networking mixer, Mary the wedding planner got together with Jason the videographer and mentioned to him how trying out some "piggyback marketing" could work out well for both of them.
i.e., "I'll put a link to your website on my site, if you'll put a link to my website on yours."
An alternative, more humorous deviation from the traditional koan in the Eastern philosophical realm such as:
A quasi-koan almost invariably has a more comedic subtext.
Traditional koans are generally devoid of humorous subtexts.
i.e., "What is the sound of one-hand clapping?"
A quasi-koan has a similar, riddle-like essence but is less serious than its traditional predecessor.
i.e., "Is a person with MPD
ever truly alone?
"If someone farts in a kitten's face, does the kitten know it is being disrespected?"
Hey! That's a quasi-koan!
A closed-minded person who sees all language in black and white with no exceptions. They are sticklers for one dictionary as their lone authority on every word. They are anal sticklers about language and they refuse to accept any new slang words as legitimate additions to a certain language. Esp., English.
The Scrabble buff was a "word puritan" and he refused to accept any coinage of a new word that was not from his authoritative source.
