A newspaper or magazine that is a smaller alternative to more mainstream, "credible" papers. It's often local, providing inside dirt on things going on in a particular city or area. Sometimes, such as in the case of The Onion, it's published online (however, the Onion is satire as opposed to an actual news source). Some things reported in these papers are not taken seriously, but they often cover important stories bigger papers won't touch. Often liberal in nature, they will also often publish some awesome comics such as Tom Tommorow's "This Modern World" or Derf's "The City." However, these papers, are not meant for a family audience. While usually free, they pay for this by running a lot of sex ads and other inappropriate stuff.
"I wanted to find out about some local bands and read "The City", so I got a free copy of my local altie newspaper."

1) Girls who are bullies and use "girl agression" (nasty comments, trickery, deceit, excluding people from events, spreading rumors, stealing boyfriends,etc.) to manipulate other girls. They will use text messaging, AIM, email, three-way-calling, and any other weapon at their disposal to acheieve these goals.
(coined by Rosalind Wiseman in her book "Queen Bees and Wannabees")
These girls are often popular because everyone is either afraid of them or wants to be like them. They tend to have armies of followers ("friends"/wannabees) comprising their clique. However, few people actually like them for who they are.
2) A movie based on Rosalind Wiseman's book "Queen Bees and Wannabees" which takes an intimate look at the inner workings of a high school and the all-powerful girl clique who seem to run it. Starred Lindsey Lohan before she went blonde and possibly anorexic, and therefore was still "hot" (see some other definitions). Very highly watched among the high school population as many girls could actually relate to the story.
1) "Those popular girls are always fighting with each other and manipulating everyone else. They're real Mean Girls."
2) "Yeah, I've seen the movie Mean Girls too. Wasn't it great?"

A shadowy group of mothers opposed to "hard rock" music. So far they have targeted popular post-hardcore/screamo/emo/whatever you want to define them as bands My Chemical Romance and the Used. This is considered by many an attack on the 1st Amendment right to free speech and a petition started on the internet as a protest to this has gained over 4,000 signatures so far. This group (MAHR) appears to have no known website (at least a Yahoo search turned up nothing) and little appears to be known about it at this time except that they are trying to ban bands that many people love.
I signed a petition against Mothers Against Hard Rock because MCR is cool and I hate censorship.

1)A term to describe the kind of women's underpants that are considered "uncool" if you're under the age of 60, or something. In this aspect they are similar to tightie whities for boys. Granny pants are usually high cut, with a highly elastic waistband that will come up to at least your belly button. They may also come in floral patterns, pink patterns, or other "old lady" looking styles- just like any other type of underwear, actually, anything's possible stylewise.
People who wear granny underwear usually wear it because
A) their mom bought it for them
B) they don't like thongs or bikini cuts
C) they're playing some kind of sport (oh, c'mon, you don't seriously think that all female athletes wear thongs, do you? Most "sporty" girls underpants are NOT thongs or really low cut.)
D) they just like them and don't care what others think.

Also called grannie panties, granny underwear, etc.
Locker room:
-"Ew, you wear granny panties?"
-"Yeah, that's right, I do. Get over it. At least they don't go up my a** like thongs."

Another name for someone who selflessly helps others.
This term originates from the parable told by Jesus in the Bible about a Samaritan (a man from a country called Samaria) who helps out a Jewish man who is ambushed by theives and left to die. This was all the more selfless of an act considering that the Jewish and Samaritan people in those times usually did not associate with each other. This story was told in response to a question concerning the scriptural mandate to "love thy neighbor as thyself". According to the story, a man asked "Who is my neighbor?" and the moral of the parable is that everyone is really your neighbor (meaning you should help anyone you see in need).
Today a Good Samaritan is usually someone who goes out on a limb to help others, even if they are complete strangers.
Ex. An anonymous good Samaritan rescued a child from the river yesterday, but left the area before he could be thanked.
