Hangar. Should probably include Oscad.
Smigus Dyngus (pronounced "Shmingles Dingles")-- Polish holiday celebrated the Monday immediately following Easter in which people are expected, nay, ENCOURAGED, to splash each other with water. Must be a purification or bathing thing, which explains why so many Polish people felt the need to explain it to Trev.

dissings. Drop one on the end of a standard diss or tack on to someone

sense. Often associated with chickhood, but no causal relationship has

It has been observed that the more Lost Boys that are assembled, generally the higher concentration of Fiascon particles. Luckily, to date there has not been a critical mass reached.
