A: "I wish I could write a dictionary for all the cool slang out there, but it's too big a task for me alone, and I can't afford to pay anyone else to do it."

B: "Crowdsourcing is the solution to your problem.. I know -- you should make a website called urbandicitonary.com, or something. People will just fill it up and edit and moderate all on their own, and you won't have to pay a dime!"

3.
Adj.

1. Appearing to be religious (e.g., because one wears a cross on a chain, sports payos, smokes the buddah, majors in world religions, seems at peace with oneself and the world, or is a generally chill or "good" person, etc.) when actually agnostic, spiritual, athiest, humanist, nihilist, or similar.

2. A non-religious person who has an inexplicable interest in or knowledge of religion, religious fashion, and the religious lifestyle and/or enjoys taking part in religious events, ceremonies, and rituals.

Not to be confused with Metrospiritual.
I thought Jim wore a yarmulke because he was Jewish, but after I saw how he devoured that king crab, I'm betting he's just metroligious.

You can tell Sarah's metroligious by the way she always brings up how she went to Catholic school whenever someone mentions nuns.
