Top Definition
A group of people who ride bicycles together while obeying traffic laws, and showing common polite behavior for roadway travel. Similar to "critical mass", only with a positive attitude, pleasant phrases, and very little spitting. Examples include the Bike Party in San Jose, CA, and the Maroon Bike Project Courteous Mass in College Station, TX, and many other polite group bicycle rides in other cities.
Bicyclist: "Hello there! We'll be coming down the road on your right side. Thank you for noticing us. Happy Friday! It's Courteous Mass!"

Motorist: "Hello! Happy Friday to you too! What a nice group of people riding bicycles together. Such a lovely activity! I'll gladly share the public road with them anytime!"

Nurse: "would you like french fries or carrots?"
Patient: "I'll have the carrots. I'm trying to loose some weight."
Nurse: "would you like a piece of the banana cream pie?"
Patient: "Oh, you silver tongued savage!"

An awkward or unsuccessful first experience, followed by better, highly successful subsequent experiences of the same kind. Like when you make a batch of pancakes: The first one turns out messed-up because you're out of practice or haven't made pancakes before. The second and following pancakes come out perfectly round and golden.
Girl 1: "My new boyfriend is so great, but when we had sex for the first time, it was awkward and terrible. I hope it gets better. I really like him and he likes me."

Girl 2: "Be patient. It's just like the first pancake. I'm sure it will get better."

The upper portion of the inside of the mouth. More commonly and incorrectly referred to as the "roof" of the mouth. This doesn't make sense because it's inside, like a ceiling, not outside, like a roof. The scalp and hair are the roof of your head, and your mouth has a ceiling.
Jim: "Hey Dan, want some tortilla chips or some Captain Crunch?"

Dan: "No thanks. Last night, I made a pizza in the oven, and like an idiot, I bit into a piece right away. The hot cheese burned the ceiling of my mouth. It hurts. I need to eat apple sauce for a few days".

The time of day when the sun is setting, when adults think it's too dark for kids to keep playing outside. The kids, however, insist there is still enough light out to keep playing for a while longer because it's not all the way dark yet. The adults think it's too dark out because they've been sitting in the house with lights on.
Mom yelling outside: "Kids, come inside. It's dark out there! Come in and wash, supper's almost ready!"

Kids: "Aw mom! It's not too dark out, we can still see the ball! It's only adult dark. 10 more minutes!"

A panda portrait is a photograph you take of yourself while on a bicycle. A bicyclist holds their camera out with one arm, and takes a picture of their own face, while on their bicycle, possibly while wearing a bicycle helmet.

I think this term can also be used for videos of one's self while riding a bicycle, in motion.

It may come from the idea that pavement is black, and the bike lane stripe is white. Panda's are black and white striped, just like bike lanes. Maybe the bicyclist stencil used to paint and mark bike lanes looks somewhat like a panda.
Check out my new photos from last week's ride. I took some great panda portraits!

When a wide, high-speed road is redesigned to be more narrow, have slower traffic, and more space designated for bicycles, pedestrians, and plant material.
Did you hear? The city council approved the road diet for University Drive. They're going to take it down from 7 lanes to 4, reduce the speed limit, put a median down the center with trees, widen the sidewalks, and stripe bike lanes on both sides. It'll be so much better. I can't wait to see it finished!
