obama-bin-biden - (noun, I guess) How my brain started reading the 2008 campaign posters (and bumper stickers and pins and leaflets and tv ads and so forth) for President Obama and Vice-President Biden.

e.g., So I'm walking down the road when I see a window sticker that says "OBAMA/BIDEN on it. But after I get past it, I suddenly realize that I had read it as "Obama bin Biden" and was thinking about the terrorist rather than the candidate...tres bizarre, no?

obamedia - What has been called the "mainstream media" is so far in tank for Barack Obama, it's only fair to refer to it as the Obamedia. P.T. Barnum, move over, any claim you had of being the greatest huckster in history pales compared to Barack Obama's. He's about to get well over 60,000,000 million votes for President of the United States.

e.g., Pat Buchanan, with only a slight edit: "Understandably, Powell is being hailed by the Obamedia as a profile in courage. Equally understandably, his endorsement of Obama is said by Republicans to smack of ingratitude, opportunism, and even vindictiveness toward a party to which he owes his fame and career." Gray Lady trolls Facebook for trash on Cindy McCain  I didn’t think my contempt for the Obamedia could get any stronger. I persuaded my husband to cancel his beloved NYT subscription years ago over their article revealing the SWIFT program. I didn’t think it was possible, but they are only getting worse, with their dumpster-diving, gynecological exams, and harassment of children. I really hate the majority of the media, with a burning intensity. juliesa on October 18, 2008 at 9:37 AM

occutard - (ock-you-tard) (noun) An adolescent of any age who loiters with other occutards. An occutard's main goal is to be a general nuisance, as she is totally ignorant of her puppetmasters' (Bill Ayers et al.) socio-Marxist cause.    Occutard characteristics:  * dependent on parents  * opposed to work  * drawn to noise and bright colors  * dangerous in large numbers (docile when solitaire)  * prone to exaggeration in regard to their privileged upbringing  * easy to manipulate (susceptible to cult worship)  * defecates in public places 

e.g., What is an occutard?    Sweet, Sweet Irony: #OWS Decides To No Longer Share Their Own Wealth With Freeloaders Of course, pretty much all of the Occutards in Zuccotti Park are freeloaders, but, the kitchen staff has a problem with some more than others in their communist utopia (via Jammie Wearing Fool) (NY Post) The Occupy Wall Street volunteer kitchen staff launched a “counter” revolution yesterday — because they’re angry about working 18-hour days to provide food for “professional homeless” people and ex-cons masquerading as protesters. Part of it is surely that they are having to work, when they thought everything would be provided for them while they relaxed on a golden couch and were fed grapes. For three days beginning tomorrow, the cooks will serve only brown rice and other spartan grub instead of the usual menu of organic chicken and vegetables, spaghetti bolognese, and roasted beet and sheep’s-milk-cheese salad. They will also provide directions to local soup kitchens for the vagrants, criminals and other freeloaders who have been descending on Zuccotti Park in increasing numbers every day. To show they mean business, the kitchen staff refused to serve any food for two hours yesterday in order to meet with organizers to air their grievances, sources said. As JWF points out, the ex-cons and homeless are using up resources without contributing anything, so, the Occupiers are going to cut them off. The Occupiers surely do not even see the irony in cutting off people who have nothing and are just looking for some help from the Zuccotti Park “government.” But, the ZPG isn’t too happy to share their own largess with the less fortunate. “We need to limit the amount of food we’re putting out” to curb the influx of derelicts, said Rafael Moreno, a kitchen volunteer. Yup, still irony, considering what the Occupiers are demanding. Some arguments broke out as the security team searched tents — but no violence erupted. Security teams? In a communist utopia? Searching tents? Stalin would be proud. This is like Lord Of The Flies on steroids. Child-like Marxists living like the proverbial pigs, though pigs tend to not live in their own “filth”, and are actually rather fussy eaters. They just like mud. And now they’re learning that people are going to try and take advantage of “the government” and get stuff for free because they feel entitled because “the government” is just there to help. The massive amounts of irony cannot be put into words. Crossed at Pirate’s Cove. Follow me on Twitter @WilliamTeach. Please sign the drill now petition.

ockham's tonsure - (Also "Occam's tonsure"; n.) _Entia_non_sunt_delenda_praeter_necessitatem, Latin for "things should not be deleted without need." The counter to Ockham's razor, which reads entia_non_sunt_multiplicanda_praeter_necessitatem_ "things should not be multiplied without need"---the idea being, of course, that hypotheses ought to remain simple until some evidence calls for additional aspects to be added to the explanation. In modern terms, simpler explanations are more likely than complicated ones. Ockham's tonsure is my way of cautioning against over-enthusiastic simplification: sometimes, the simplest answer doesn't cut it. It's rare, but it happens.

e.g., B: "Look, Arnie's porch is covered in newspapers. His mailbox is stuffed. And his lights all go on at exactly 10 p.m.---I think he's gone somewhere." C: "Actually, he was kidnapped by aliens." B: "Don't be ridiculous: Ockham's razor says the simpler explanation is probably the right one." C: "But don't forget Ockham's tonsure: the simple answer isn't always sufficient." B: "Well, what evidence do you have to justify the addition of aliens and kidnapping to his simply being on vacation or something?" C: "Witness testimony. I was there." B: "What? Somebody actually saw an ALIEN drag Arnie off?!" C: "Yeah. Me. I was there: It was Quiznob of Bizzorg." B: "Quiznob. Bizzorg. Right. Are you nuts?! You don't expect me to believe this nonsense, do you?" C: "But it's true! Don't be overly Ockhamous." D: "Hey, guys, There's a note here on the door: 'I have your friend. If you want him back, bring me 800 dachshunds, 50 rhyming greeting cards, and a bucket of your Earth petroleum. On the 10th of your month July.' It's signed 'Quiznob of Bizzorg.'" B: "Holy crap." C: "Told you." B: "Ockham's tonsure, huh?" D: "What's a Quiznob?" C: "Don't you think we should start buying dachshunds? And greeting cards?"

old people - People at least 10 or 15 years older than I am. No matter how old I get, that will always be the case.

e.g., None of the old people I know are going to be doing more than a minimal amount of texting. Certainly not enough for them to bother learning Text Message Shorthand -- which you probably call something else. I can't be bothered to learn that. | How fast does brain rot set in with texters, not to mention Carpal Tunnel Syndrome? I suggest they stick to texting, since they quite obviously can't write "real" sentences. I know, I know. They don't care. (Oh, I mentioned Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, didn't I? Please forgive me. I'm one of those ultra-old people -- old enough not only to have grandchildren, but old enough to have great-grandchildren. Lillith may be even older. Daren't ask.)    I wonder how many of today's crop could make it as computer programmers, programmers of the type where syntax counts. I once took a graduate class at MIT, Construction of Reliable Software. As lagniappe, a little something extra, IBM software guru Harlan Mills spoke to the class the last day. After his lecture, one of the students asked how a compiler should deal with syntax errors. For example, should it "suggest" how to correct them? Mills replied simply, "You shouldn't make syntax errors." (I corrected your syntax errors, Ruth, and otherwise cleaned up what you submitted before adding it to the pd -- as promised. You can thank me later.)    Now, if it's an argument with an old person you're looking for, I'm nearly always ready to oblige. Mr Media says, "Picking a fight is generally a bad idea, but I’m not an absolutist on that point" -- something you won't hear me saying. I must admit that I do try to avoid picking fights or starting arguments when I know I'm outgunned. Why volunteer for a beating when you have nothing to gain from doing so? Jim Muth says, "Think before you act and don't pick fights you can't win." That's good advice, not just for politicians. However, bring a fight to me and I'll seldom pass it up.    Have you ever heard what Franklin Delano Roosevelt said about starting arguments? Do you even know who Franklin Delano Roosevelt is? I'd almost be surprised, given that History has been replaced by something called Social Studies in public schools. God knows what such "studies" are. Maybe something like history, but with less emphasis on facts and more emphasis on spinning tales for political purposes? Anyway, back to what FDR said, although it wasn't original with him. . . . Well, I thought I had an entry at pseudoselfpromotion, discussing the remark attributed to Roosevelt, but it got deleted. Fortunately, since the pd gets copied without permission, I found a back-up that allowed me to restore it.

oleo - Short for oleomargarine, the original term for what we now call margarine.

e.g., Oleo first appeared commercially in stores in the late 1940s as a cheap substitute for butter. Butter manufacturers insisted that it not look too much like yellow butter, so oleo appeared only white to purchase. Soon though a color capsule was included in the package, so that consumers could manually add color themselves. Eventually you could buy ordinary colored oleo, or margarine, in the store.

oleomargarine - This is the original word for margarine; as a matter of fact, it was commonly called oleo at first for a while, before it was called margarine.

omnibibulous - One who is omnibibulous is likely to drink anything (spirits). An existing coined word related to the word "imbibe." Attributed to H.L. Mencken, who used an alternative spelling: "ombibulous." The first example was submitted by Marvin Scott and comes from Wm. Manchester's biography of Winston Churchill, The Last Lion, page 886 in the Laurel Trade Paperback Edition, 1983.

e.g., "Sir William Hawthorne, Master of Churchill College, Cambridge, expected me to be both omnivorous and omnibibulous; when we rose from his high table and left the room I felt sheathed in an alcoholic mist." Synergistic Press's blurb: "I'm ombibulous. I drink every known alcoholic drink and enjoy them all." No one who has read more than a paragraph of H.L. Mencken's writing could fail to know that he was a connoisseur and champion of beer but it is amazing so many do not know he also had praise for a wide variety of libations. And it is fitting that he coined the word which inspired this humorous "drinking biography" of the Sage of Baltimore (HLM admitted it should have been "omnibibulous," but this is the way he used it.) For Mencken, probably the first man to take a serious interest in the American language, delighted in tracing the origin of its words and phrases and contributed many himself, including -- on the subject of drinking -- bibuli, bootician, boozehound . . . as well as ombibulous. "As long as you represent me as praising alcohol I shall not complain," Mencken wrote Upton Sinclair in 1924. A sampling of other quotes from The Ombibulous Mr. Mencken: "Most of the trouble from so-called overeating comes from underdrinking. . . ." "I drink exactly as much as I want, and one drink more." "I would not have any reputable man think that I was actually sober in San Francisco." "No heavy eater and no good drinking man has a mean heart. That's why the fatsos of the world get the best women to hop into bed with them. There isn't a woman alive who wouldn't give up a skinny husband for a good fat lover. . . ." Although obviously an enthusiastic and literate advocate of the convivial glass, Mencken felt strongly that it could not be considered fuel for either intellectual or manual endeavor. The Ombibulous Mr. Mencken includes his program for handling alcohol, as recorded in a 1948 Library of Congress interview. "The rules are simple as mud. "First, never drink if you've got any work to do. Never. If I've got a job of work to do at 10 o'clock at night, I wouldn't take a drink up to that time. Secondly, never drink alone. That's the way to become a drunkard. And thirdly, even if you haven't got any work to do, never drink while the sun is shining. Wait until it's dark. By that time you're near enough to bed to recover quickly." "An amusing book with a bouquet redolent with entertaining quips and anecdotes." (The Baltimore Sun) "Any who have been interested in the polite use of alcohol, the American language, or the United States in prohibition days and after, and particularly in H. L. Mencken should give themselves the pleasure of reading this choice bit." (Library Journal). The book is liberally illustrated with photos (one used on the cover, as well, shows Mencken downing the first legal glass of beer to celebrate the end of Prohibition in 1933), reproduced letters, and a cartoon showing HLM at a 1944 beer party for servicemen.

omnium-gatherum - Michael Quinion says it's a miscellaneous collection. It's a term that could be applied to the PseudoDictionary. © Michael Quinion -- World Wide Words Weird Words: Omnium-gatherum A miscellaneous collection. One of my reference books disparagingly calls this expression Dog Latin and it’s a fair description. The first part is genuine enough, being the genitive plural of omnis, all (omnibus, for what we prefer nowadays to call a bus, is the dative plural of the same word). The second part, however, is just the English word gather with a fake Latin ending. The 1788 second edition of Francis Grose’s Classical Dictionary of the Vulgar Tongue says it’s a “jocular imitation of law Latin” and this seems plausible.

e.g., I spent some time perusing the omnium-gatherum here today and smiled more than once at the creativity of some of the contributors.
