Euphemistic term for a wealthy or rich person first proposed by Republican politicians in mid-2011.

The term is meant to justify why the wealthy are given special legal and economic advantages and why the rich are taxed less than other people in the United States even though they can afford it more.

In Republican/Tea Party political theory, "Job Creators" are wealthy because they are industrious, virtuous, hard working people and can use their vast wealth to create jobs by hiring people to work for them. The idea that this euphemism is trying to convey is that taxing these people would hurt the economy because then their money would be going to the government (which is always evil in this political ideology) which will only waste tax money on things like social services.
We are Job Creators, therefore we deserve not to be taxed on our big houses and luxury cars, because then we might not be able to afford our nanny and gardener.

Martial art derived from traditional Okinawan martial arts, literally meaning "fist law". Kenpo (also sometimes romanized as Kempo) was first widely taught in the west by James Masayoshi Mitose, who first taught Kenpo in Hawaii in the 1940's and 1950's.

The students of Mitose, including Parker and Chow, went on to found schools of Kenpo throughout the west. Kenpo schools vary in their curriculum, but typically resemble Karate in being rich in strikes, blocks, and "hard" techniques, although some schools incorporate various degrees of throws, chokes and grappling techniques. Kenpo is sometimes called "Kenpo Karate" and the term Kenpo is used synonymously with the word Karate on Okinawa.

Kenpo is still practiced in Okinawa and Japan, one popular form being Shorinji Kenpo, a martial arts school combining Zen Buddhist teachings with martial arts instruction in a modern reconstruction of Shaolin temple practices (shorinji being the Japanese pronunciation of Shaolin).
I studied Kenpo for several years, it was a lot like the karate I studied earlier.

The Bridal Diaper is an urban legend circulated widely among Adult Baby and Diaper Lover communities. The legend is that it is a popular trend for brides to wear some form of diaper under their wedding dress. The legend is propagated as a fantasy of many fetishists, as male fetishists are attracted to the idea of a bride wearing a diaper under her dress, and female fetishists are attracted to the idea of wearing a diaper under their dress.

Thanks to internet message boards, a fairly small number of fetishists have been able to create rumors, anecdotes and reports that it is surprisingly popular for otherwise normal women to wear a disposable diaper as bridal lingerie. Going into an actual bridal boutique or asking people who really work in the wedding industry is more likely to elicit rolled eyes and sighs, as the legend is known by most professionals, albeit somewhat obscure.

The legend gained some independent validation when on an episode of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation in 2006 called "Rashomama" (itself a pun on Rashomon). In this episode the character of a wedding planner mentioned that because of the hectic and busy wedding day and bulky wedding dresses he sold "bridal diapers" for brides that couldn't find the time to go to the restroom and remove their dresses, then put their dresses back on. The characters on the show were surprised and wondering if the character was only kidding, which the show did not answer. As the show had already been known for episodes

Aside from internet forums and the one appearance on CSI there is virtually no evidence that "Bridal Diapers" are any kind of real wedding tradition, and the only brides that wear diapers on their wedding days are either 1. brides that are foolishly taken in by this urban legend, 2. diaper fetishists, 3. genuinely incontinent persons who wear diapers at other times and find nothing special in wearing a diaper under their wedding dress.
My sister is getting married, for a little while she thought she might need to wear a bridal diaper because her dress is big and she read about it on the internet as something that is popular. I told her to ask about it at the bridal boutique she goes to, they had to restrain the laughter when they told her there really is no such thing as bridal diapers, and if she's seriously concerned about needing to pee during the wedding she's best off using the toilet right before she gets dressed, and not drinking a huge amount during the reception. I sometimes wonder how many brides actually do wear diapers under their wedding dress because they read a rumor about it on the internet.

A truck that provides food services to workplaces or other gathering places. The food is typically vending machine fare such as cans of soda and bottles of tea, as well as bags of snack foods or jerky. Often a warming oven keeps a number of premade hamburgers, hot dogs, and/or pizza slices ready for consumption.

The quality of the food is typically low, and prices high compared to other purchase options.
On our afternoon break we went out to the gut truck and got a bottle of coke and a nasty reheated burger.
