In finance, "earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization," sometimes "EBIT-DA." In accounting, a way-station in the slow morph from "conceptual" to "pure cash flow" reporting. Compare "EBAWDWTCAE"--"earnings before anything we don't want to count as expenses."
The net is negative but the EBITDA is sensational.

Extra Virgin Olive Oil, the stuff Rachel Ray uses to cook with, dress salads with, and, I should hope, roll around with her buddies in after a hard week slaving over a hot stove. The usage seems to be spilling over to other cooking shows as well, but caution: no matter what Rachel tells you, if you are cooking, E.V.O.O. is a waste; save it for salads and use more ordinary oil at the stove. For rolling around in, I should think you could do just as well with Mazola.

'Fisk' is developing a meaning that is broader than definition #1 but more constrained than definition #4. It's coming to designate any point-by-point (attempt at) refutation of the other guy's argument. Haven't seen it with a small "f" yet, but surely that will come soon.

The bane of the dean's existence. The parent who hovers and flaps his wings while the kid lives in his shadow. Particularly prevalent at high-priced colleges, where parents feel obliged (or entitled) to intervene on issues down to the candlepower of the lightbulbs.
Yes, helicopter parent, your intentions are good, but that rotor of yours is causing a din.--Felix Carroll, Albany Times Union, January 27, 2005

Well, I thought it stood for "no further message"--something to add to the subject line to an email, when the subject line is the email, to save the recipient the nuisance of opening the, um, message. If it does not mean this, it should.

An inspirationally sculpted backside, often, though not inevitably, female--sufficiently compelling to disencumber the customer of his (sometimes her) money or good sense. In an golden age of amateurism, perhaps obsolete.
Put on your old grey bustle
And get out and hustle
For tomorrow the rent is due!

In the fields of clover
Let the boys look you over--
If you can't get five, take two.
