barfare™ - Barack Obama promised to cut taxes for 95% of Americans, but 40% of Americans pay no taxes. When asked about that, a Democrat operative said the 40% would get tax credits. It was pointed out to her that tax credits are used to reduce taxes -- you can't reduce taxes for those who don't pay them. Similary, calling the largesse a tax rebate doesn't work. A new word is needed for the money to be handed out by the giverment. Barackfare, husseinfare, and obamafare were rejected. Barfare™ it is. Pronounced barf' air.

e.g., When I heard about barfare, I was flying between Cincinnati and St. Louis. On Barf Air, no less. It was the bumpiest flight I've ever been on. When I asked the stewardess if it was her regular route or if she was being punished, she said she was being punished regularly. … No, it didn't have anything to do with S&M, not as far as I know. I suppose it's possible, though, and that she was being doubly clever.

beanard - A person who sucks her fart bubbles in the bathtub. As near as I can tell, this is local slang from north central Arkansas, from the mid-1950s. Couldn't find a single instance of the word with this meaning on the Internet. Companion word: scrounge. Thought it might turn up in the racial slur database, but it didn't. Beniard did show up. {ED. For whatever reason, Google now turns up the companion pd entry for scrounge, but not this one for beanard. The difference could possibly be the way in which headwords are handled by Google. Finally occurred to me that a pd entry for scrounge has been around for eons. All I did was add another definition and example.}

e.g., Little brother, why don't you and your beanard buddy Jim take a hike? Lynn Carol and I have things we want to talk about and we don't want you eavesdropping.
