floormat - "Floormat" is an alternative spelling -- and pronunciation -- of "format." It is a common error among people whose work experience and involvement in projects far exceeds their level of education. It arises from the common sense hearing of an unfamiliar word, where the hearer begins to understand the connotation of the unfamiliar term or expression before ever seeing the printed word, so that a similar sounding word or expression is seized upon and remembered in the place of the correct word.

In this case, "floormat" is a thing that is always placed at the bottom, and things can be built on it, whereas "format" is the fundamental underlying process or paradigm to which all additions and changes must conform . . . which is to say, "must be built upon." So, "floormat" has been independently substituted for "format" in the minds of thousands of Americans who find themselves swimming above their heads in a sea of new words, while the current of work is moving faster than their ability to stop and catch up on reading if they are to keep afloat.

Those who hear the misuse tend to wink at it, rather than correct it, understanding the confusion, but not wishing to interrupt the flow or to be impolite enough to presume to "teach" those whose credentials suffice for membership, without the benefit of ever having been forced to compete in, say, the Australian Crawl. After all, if all you need to get from Point A to Point B is dog-paddling, and you have a deadline by which to do it, do you really care if someone from line staff -- who really knows the population you are trying to affect and whom you may never see again -- says "It is important that we make sure that every team at each location follows the same floormat," when they really mean "format"?

e.g., It is important that we make sure that every team at each location follows the same floormat.

flossofise - To spend countless hours waffling extensively about any and every issue raised in a discussion. An important aspect is that the waffling is usually in opposition to the raised issue as set forth by the original flosser. Waffling by any-person-other-than-self or by pseudo-opinionaters challenges the original speaker's position as well as understanding of the issue. Ultimately, flossofising tends to (a) confirm the flosser's original position, (b) thrash the argument to pieces by pedantically picking at every possible flaw, and (c) start off as a mock-fight eventually leading to real and often heated arguments. The flosser is usually left with a feeling of despair when she realizes how futile the whole excercise has been.

Such waste can occur in any quantities in any mixture in any location. If you witness a fly tipping and there is conclusive evidence The Environment Agency will prosecute the offenders."

flyspecking - When asked by Newt Gingrich what surprised him most about running for President, Herman Cain said it was the nitpickiness of the media. He went on to refer to "flyspecking," clearly a derivative of flyspeck: "1. A minute or insignificant spot. 2. A small dark speck or stain made by the excrement of a fly."  
"A slang expression for reviewing every word, every comma that might make a difference between dependent and independent clauses, every pronoun and its antecedents (does 'he' refer to the grantor or the grantee in a sentence, for example), and sketching every property description in every deed in a chain of title to make sure the same land is always described and the description makes an enclosed parcel. Comes from the expression 'picking the flyspecks out of the pepper,' which is an exceptionally tedious job."

e.g., "But I did not realize the flyspecking nature of the media when you are running for President. Especially when you start moving up in the polls."  
"Hollywood Attorney Ed Pfister, who represented the developer of Miami's Opera Tower in a landmark ILSA decision last August, said 'These people bought at the height of the market and now that the market is down, they are flyspecking the contracts for any language they can use to get out of the contracts and get their deposits back.'"

fod -

1. Friend of Dorothy. A gay man. | The Free Library: "As every theatrical type knows, the phrase 'friend of Dorothy is a euphemism for a gay man. It was coined in the 1930s to describe members of the camp circle that surrounded American salon hostess and author Dorothy Parker at her celebrated Round Table at the Algonquin Hotel in New York."  
"I hear he likes show tunes" is also used to refer to gays. Have no real idea if these usages are considered particularly offensive to gays, but I recommend that they be avoided by straights unless given some indication that it's all right for you to use the terms. See cracker and oppithet.  
2. FOD stands for Finger of Death in fantasy gaming: "[Abbreviation for ‘Finger of Death,’ originally a spell-name from fantasy gaming.] To terminate with extreme prejudice and with no regard for other people. From MUDs where the wizard command ‘FOD ’ results in the immediate and total death of , usually as punishment for obnoxious behavior. This usage migrated to other circumstances, such as ‘I’m going to fod the process that is burning all the cycles.’"  
3. In aviation, FOD means Foreign Object Damage -- e.g., what happens when a jet engine sucks up a rock on the runway or a bird in flight. Finger of Death is a distressingly apt description of what this generally does to the engine. (Jargon File) Source: V.E.R.A. -- Virtual Entity of Relevant Acronyms December 2001  
4. Flexible Optical Disk (OD) Source: Jargon File (4.3.1, 29 Jun 2001)  

Probably offensive and intended to belittle or insult and would usually be rejected. However, as it is new to your pseudodictionary editrix extraordinare, I'll let it in -- in hopes of finding out where it came from from one of our visitors. Send e-mail to help to My speculation is that it may come from an affinity of gays for Judy Garland. For the younger crowd, Ms. Garland played Dorothy Gale in 1939's The Wizard of Oz.  
There's a movie that was made before I was born -- 1939 is generally considered the peak year for Hollywood film making. Several great pictures were made that year, the best-known of which are probably The Wizard of Oz and Gone With the Wind. Just google "1939 films" to find out more.  
Editrix Extraordinaire.  

I was jonesin' (or had a jones) for googling and couldn't restrain myself. Some finds:
  • A Friend of Dorothy is a clothing and accessories store in Vancouver, BC, where site creator host Paul lives.

  • Before Judy Garland came along, the Dorothy referred to was Dorothy Parker. When asked to use the word "horticulture" in a sentence, Mrs. Parker responded, "You can lead a horticulture, but you can't make her think." The witty Dorothy Parker.

  • The exact phrase "a friend of Dorothy" is found in The Wizard of Oz a couple of times.

  • TV's Golden Girls episode "Isn't it Romantic" had a visiting lesbian friend of Dorothy's falling for Rose.

  • IMDB: "He's a disco-dancin'-Oscar Wilde readin'-Streisand-ticket-holdin'-friend of Dorothy, you know what I'm saying?" is dialogue from the always groovy Clueless. (An excuse to use the currently clueless adjective "groovy.")

  • Insight: A history of queer TV: Finally, gives us "Between Will And Grace and Ellen's big lesbian kiss, you probably think homo TV is a recent invention. But we've got news for you -- the boob tube has been full of dykes and fags since the tiny screen started flickering in the 50s. The thing is, these characters played it on the QT. It took a friend of Dorothy to know one."
The final item convinces me that it's time to stop my search. What I've found suggests that if FOD is offensive at all -- and it probably is -- it's nowhere near as offensive as the n-word. It certainly seems to be OK to use FOD if you're FOD. Still, just as it seems to be OK for blacks to use the n-word to refer to each other, we know it's not OK for whites to use it. If you're straight, avoid FOD until you get a clear and authoritative sign that it's OK for you to use. (See oppithet.)  
From the Oz books:  
  • Chapter 8 - The Hungry Tiger: "Glad to meet any friend of Dorothy's," said the Lion, politely. "To judge by your present appearance, you are not a coward, as I am."

  • Chapter Twenty-Four - The Royal Reception: "A great friend of Dorothy and Ozma seemed to be a machine man called Tik-Tok, who ran down several times during the evening and had to be wound up again by someone before he could move or speak."

  • Dorothy and the Wizard of Oz Chapter 16 - Jim, the Cab Horse: "Any friend of Dorothy," remarked the Cowardly Lion, "must be our friend, as well. So let us cease this talk of skull crushing and converse upon more pleasant subjects. Have you breakfasted, Sir Horse?"

e.g., If I could lay my hands on my copy of The American Thesaurus of Slang, I'll bet I could come up with twice as many synonyms for fool as I have. Drat, I hope I haven't lost it for good. Cost me about $15, but I'll bet I'd have to pay $100 to replace it, if I could find a copy for sale.  
Words related to fool or foolish:

easy mark,

Simple Simon,

fool's gold words - "[F]ool's gold words make us think [something] is automatically good." That comes from Hal Lillywhite's blog. Lillywhite's essay also gave me the idea for the first example; the second example comes from the linked essay. He writes further:

I first encountered the term "Fool's Gold Words" in John Chamberlain's introduction to the 1944 American edition of Hayek's The Road to Serfdom though I do not know if the term was original with him. He applied it to concepts such as full employment, economic pump priming, the good of the whole, the greatest good for the greatest number etc. However it also fits many buzz-words today.
Chamberlain's review is also where I found the term.

e.g., Please spare me from doctors who insist on "practicing cutting edge medicine." Those are little but fool's gold words as far as I'm concerned -- especially when a doctor insists that I continue taking a "new drug" because it's more effective than tried-and-true older drugs. If the FDA suspects the new drug of having the unfortunate side effect of increasing the risk of bladder cancer (Actos) or pancreatic cancer (Byetta, Januvia, Victoza), I'll pass. If it means I have to find another doctor who will treat me a slightly less effective drug, with known side effects, so be it. | "Like witch words, fool's gold words will mislead us unless we are careful. We must learn to recognize and counteract them. Whenever a word or phrase short-circuits critical thinking we should be careful. When we recognize fool's gold words we should delve into their implications and see if there is evidence for those implications."

footyanity - An Aussie religion developed 150 years ago -- called AFL (Australian Football League), formally known as VFL. It is known as "Aussie Rules" or "Footy." Reason footy has became a religion is because MANY Aussies worship the footy and make it a ritual to watch the weekly matches. There's even a pay TV channel called the "Fox Footy Channel" which takes up several channels chock full of AFL on the pay TV decoder box.

e.g., Because of their footyanity, footy fans go to church (the stadium) and worship the lord (the game) by chanting to each god (each footy team, e.g., "up the mighty blues" for Carlton) and wear the appropriate clothing for each god they worship (beanies and scarfs with footy team colours). It's not required to attend church -- just watch footy on your TV set.
