"Calling a cop a Police Officer is more polite; But when other cops do it it's a like a calling a garbage-man a Sanitation-Worker or a calling a store-clerk a Sales-Associate."
US Army slang for the human mouth.

*Note: this term is NOT meant to be homo-phobic, nor does it imply or suggest any degree of homosexuality on anyone's part, it is simply a term of endearment to be used when you're pissed-off at someone.
"All of you, shut your goddam fucking cock-holsters and listen up...!"
A US Military term for a special kind of upper-torso wound (usually combat related) caused mostly by bullet-projectiles or sharpnel, which punctures/damages the lungs/chest cavity in such a way as to create an amazing (but often fatal) condition whereas the victim is in essence breathing air(inhaling & exhaling)through the hole in his chest. It's rare, but if you ever get a chance to see one, it's pretty darn cool.
Note: To treat this wound, one waits for the poor sucker to exhale, then covers the wound with a piece of platic. As the victim inhales (sucks-in) hopefully the air-sucking pulls the plastic tight into the wound and forms sort of a rudimentary air-locking seal.
