A leader or speaker who instead of using his or her words , acts like the crowd in hopes that this will buy their attention ,or convince them of the speakers information.

It's the drum roll that accentuates a stand-up comic's punch line. It is often spoken to make obvious that something stated was intended to be a pun or a joke. One or the other is usually used -- badabing or badaboom.
Q: What instrument do fish like to play? A: A bass guitar. Badabing, badaboom!
Technically, it is a reaction to racism towards non-Caucasian people. It includes economic and political benefits in effort to compensate for past and ongoing social oppression experienced by non-Caucasians.
Such oppression ranges from marginalization to physical abuse to childhood emotional scarring to the gym teacher shouting "DO YOU SPEAK ENGLISH" to every Chinese kid he sees. But none of these examples are anywhere near as catastrophic when compared to a reactionary anti-white joke told by a black standup comedian. From this reasoning emerges the term "reverse racism".
With respect to the term itself, "reverse racism" implies that there is backwards logic behind racism against Caucasians, and that it is somehow more deserving of disapproval than just regular racism.
Furthermore, "racism" and "reverse racism" can be interpreted as binary oppositions, where "racism" is the (socially conditioned to be) acceptable state, while "reverse racism" is the unacceptable counterpart.
Reverse racism can also be interpreted as a defense mechanism for "white man's guilt".
"Anyone who points out our race problems is a reverse racist." - the GOP
"Reverse racism hurts my feelings." - racist
A way to say that someone looks like they are a homoxexual without saying it out loud. Because gay guys often have a look on their face like they are smelling cookies. It is from a Dane Cook standup comedy joke.
That guy over by the bar is so smelling cookies.
While most of the other definitions on this topic are technically correct, none of them attribute the joke to its originator, Yakov Smirnoff, an actor and standup comedian who is pretty recent and also still alive.
I can't believe the contributors to this definition were so stupid that they think a joke by a comedian who was incredibly famous during the late 80s and is still very famous is actually a joke that just "comes from the internet"!
In soviet russia, contributors to internet sites probably know what they're talking about, because they don't here.
|6.||At least it wasn't a baby with full grown man legs.|
Inspired by a joke in standup comedian, Meredith Stepien's comedy act, in which she expresses joy over that fact that there was only a bobcat lose in her neighborhood; and not a baby with full grown man legs running through the forest. This phrase can be used to lift people spirits when they're feeling down.
Mathew: Man, I couldn't get any sleep last night. The birch tree outside kept scrapping against my window.
Sarah: Well at least it wasn't a baby with full grown man legs.
