Pulling a hearst or to hearst.: To make up news where there aren’t any, or make up a story and pass it as true, particularly when there is a dearth of real events. The term is coined after American press tycoon Randolph William Hearst who was known for manufacturing sensational stories from whole cloth and distorting real events.
Ahmed: I read that Saudi Arabia has rejected the nomination of a Pakistani diplomat to be ambassador to their country because his name is Akbar Zib … dude, in Arabic that name means “biggest dick”.
