chick-fil-a moment - A Chick-fil-A Moment occurs when a high muckety-muck in a company makes a statement about her principles, a statement that is contrary to liberal dogma: abortion on demand for females of any age, give illegal aliens the same government benefits as citizens, hand out free contraceptives to children as easame-sex marriage, sex before marriage, killing all men over sixty, regardless of their health,

My response to the controversy will be to frequent a nearby Chick-fil-A more often. It's not as close as other fast-food locations, but it's not that far away. Besides, Chick-fil-A makes just about the best milkshake around. I learned that in 2009 when I was in Bryant, Arkansas, and asked where I could get the best milkshake in town. The waitress told me Sonic, but a customer said no, Chick-fil-A makes the best milkshake. He was right -- especially the peach-flavored milkshake that was being featured at the time.

"Chick-fil-A Vice President of Public Relations Donald Perry died" July 27, 2012, "amid the furor sparked by his boss' biblical opposition to same-sex marriage." (Learned after writing the examples.)

e.g., A Chick-fil-A Moment is usually followed by liberal fascists wringing their hands and vowing never to darken the doorstep of a Chick-fil-A again -- not that many such protesters have ever been in a Chick-fil-A previously. | To counter the effects of a recent Chick-fil-A Moment, I'm going to recommend to the company that it print coupons for free meals and distribute them to people who have announced boycotts of the company. The coupons should show clearly that they can be redeemed only on Sundays. In addition, they should also have a relatively short-term expiration date, just in case the company gets sold to someone who keeps the stores open on Sundays.

e.g., "Mary? Mary? What are you doing in the attic?" "I'm hiding from the party." "I guessed you'd finally snap: you invited 54 kids, and the oldest is only six." "I just couldn't take it anymore." "Feeling chick-pecked, huh?" "With fries."

So far no authoritative news source has reported anything other than chicken**** in the current brouhaha regarding what was recently said about the Israeli Head of State, Benjamin Netanyahu.

Time to circle the wagons.

e.g., "In October 2014 an anonymous obama administration official reportedly called Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu a chicken****." | Whatever else he may be, Netanyahu is no chickenshit.

chile - The country in South America. Lately, newscasters have taken to pronouncing the name in an odd fashion, as "chee-lay." This is close to the pronunciation in Spanish. But everyone has always said "chill-ee," which sounds quite normal.

chilipunked - Being ignored when you don't think you deserve it. When a newspaper or other news media source does not mention your group in a story and you believe said mention is warranted, you have been "chilipunked."

e.g., From the News & Observer (Raleigh, NC) Blog, "Under the Dome" on March 4, 2008. The Libertarian Party plans to post challengers in some legislative races. The party has collected more than 95,000 signatures and is in the process of certifying them with local elections officials and the State Board of Election, according to would-be gubernatorial candidate Mike Munger. In an e-mail to Dome, the Duke University political science professor said that once the party plans to field candidates in "quite a few" of the 56 races with no competition. "We'd (the Libertarians) love to be able to have a primary, but the state denied our right to do that when they used their discretion to decertify us after the 2004 election," he wrote. He also said that Dome's failure to mention the possibility of Libertarian candidates "chilipunked" him. We have no earthly idea what that verb means.

Remember, 'to deliberately invent a new word, without some foregoing suggestion or basis, and get it adopted, is one of the rarest events in the world, even in America, where men are continually attempting it.'

chinaman's chance - Slim to no chance at all. Originally "Chinaman's chance in hell." Slang reflective of a time when Chinese workers in the American West could get only the most dangerous and difficult work, the term is often considered insulting and racist. |

Little to no chance at all -- roughly the same as the down-under "You've got Buckley's chance" or "You've got Buckley's." ("What are my chances of . . . going out with you?" "Buckley's.") The phrase seems to have come into common use in the mid- to late-nineteenth century when many Chinese laborers came to the United States to build railroads, dangerous work. The immigrants were paid very low wages and were treated poorly in other ways. Caucasian-dominated legislatures -- including the Congress of the United States -- passed laws preventing the immigrants from ascending the socio-economic ladder. God forbid that they be allowed to become citizens. There appear to have been efforts to deny citizenship to their American-born children as well, but I haven't pursued that tack yet.

From Wikipedia: "The Chinese Exclusion Act was a United States federal law signed by Chester A. Arthur on May 6, 1882, following revisions made in 1880 to the Burlingame Treaty of 1868. Those revisions allowed the U.S. to suspend Chinese immigration, a ban that was intended to last 10 years. This law was repealed by the Magnuson Act on December 17, 1943."

The linked web page tells about a misguided attempt by a would-be Thomas Bowdler, Huan Hsu, to "ban" the term Chinaman's chance Among other words and phrases Hsu wants banned are chink in the armor, faggot, gobbledygook, niggardly, and spic-and-span. He claims what he is interested in doing is "not shrinking the language — it's evolving it." No, Mr Hsu, what you want to do is shrink the language. Language evolves on its own; efforts such as yours are hardly necessary for its evolution. I see what you are trying to do (as you foolishly and unnecessarily call attention to outdated words and phrases) as working against the evolutionary change you say you want. What you should do instead is grow some, Huan.

Having fewer words to use to express ourselves rather than more goes against what pseudodictionariers want to do. Most of us try to be sensitive about how we use our ever-expanding vocabularies, but we won't go overboard about being politically correct.

e.g., "Whatever he says, Mike Huckabee has only a Chinaman's chance of getting the Republican nomination for President." "'Chinaman's chance'? That's just the sort of thing I'd expect a cracker like Huckabee to say." "'Cracker'? That's just the sort of. . . ." |

As far as I'm concerned, Huan Hsu doesn't have a Chinaman's chance in his efforts to diminish the English language -- while he says what he's trying to do is not what he's trying to do. The man is better-suited to be a politician than a writer.

[Derived from the word "Archive," based on the "ar" being taken to mean "r." A friend and I were talking on the phone, and I mentioned a file being on my "f-drive." But he thought I'd said "s-chive." Once we worked out what he thought he'd heard me say, we came up with the "a-chive, b-chive, c-chive" idea fairly quickly. This entry is the result. (Cf. "nager" herein)] {Duplicate.}

chode - A short, stout person. | A collective noun (as in gaggle of geese) for a group of political extremists whether Left or Right. | Term of venery for a group of liberals, progressives, or other leftists or social justicists. See UrbanDictionary for less savory definitions.

Subject: Collective Noun Page - Suggestion  

Among my least favorite "words" is chode. It has been given almost 500 definitions at UrbanDictionary. [You'll find more than 15,000 hits googling the site for it.] I've bothered to look at only the first three or four and the last -- the latter in an effort to find out how many definitions had been submitted. None of the definitions I saw was suitable for a family-oriented site.  

Among my least favorite people are liberals, not just people to the left of center, but people so far left as to be . . . irritating to me. Also among my least favorite people are the religious right or evangelicals who seem to have little to do other than find e-mails to forward. I got one the other day that was so ridiculous I did something I had never done before -- I sent a response to hundreds of people in the e-mail tree to tell them to quit sending idiotic e-mails. I even bought software to search my hard drive to generate the mailing list I used -- I'll probably never use that list again.  

Anyway, here's how to use the collective noun chode: a chode of liberals. On the other hand, if you're a liberal: a chode of conservatives. Here's the deal -- you can pick the group that chode is used to refer to. My preference is that it be used for the extreme Left, but it can also be used for the extreme Right -- either way, for someone who has no tolerance at all for someone in the other part of the political spectrum.  

My objective is to give chode something other than an x-rated definition.

e.g., Amy's in love with a chode. | I had planned to vote early, but when I got to the library a huge chode of liberals was already there. Oh, well, it won't matter, anyway. McCain is going to win Idaho by anywhere from 25 to 40%. The best I can say for McCain is that he'll get my vote as the lesser of two weevils if I can't cast my write-in vote for Bozo the Clown. (Yeah, I know Bozo's dead. Long live Bozo.) | The current failing economy should make the climate control chodes very happy. The more factories that get shut down and taken out of operation, the less energy consumed. With lower energy consumption comes lower greenhouse gas emissions. | I wonder when the chodes calling for electric- and hybrid-powered cars will come to the realization that the power to recharge batteries doesn't come from the wall or the energy tree -- it comes from burning fossil fuels in power plants. The plants that don't use fossil fuels use either hydroelectric energy or nuclear energy. Don't the chodes care how many snail darters have to be sacrificed to keep them from eating their shoes for Thanksgiving dinner? | Nothing else perturbs me quite like the hypocritical all-knowing and all-powerful gods chodes Al Gore and Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. They travel by private jet and have carbon footprint dozens of times the size of us mere mortals. Carbon credits, my ass. Assholes.
