look up any word, like donkey punch:
 
1.
1) A Dandy--a dandy--a gay man, so called because of Joel Cairo in "The Maltese Falcon." Joel Cairo is one of the first clearly gay men to appear in American film. A Joel Cairo is probably a gay man who hasn't come out but is kinda obvious if you smell his gardenia scented business cards.

2) To do a Joel Cairo is recoup your losses after having seemed to have failed. To suddenly rally in the face of defeat--much in the same way Hulk Hogan suddenly comes back from the dead when the Hulkamaniacs start screaming his name.
How did you end up losing the bet?

That cat Joel Cairoed me--I didn't realise he knew the bookie and had a hot tip. Damn!
