ovarian beamacide - Legal term for the vaporizing of a male spouse by the female spouse utilizing her Ovarian Beam-O-Death. It is a particle beam emitted from the female's forehead with the force of 99 gazillion atmospheres delivered on the target male at six times the speed of a teenager answering a telephone. Usually happens when a noisy male tries to sneak into the couple's abode too late. No female has ever been prosecuted for this. Only known prevention of Ovarian Beamacide is for the male to have his genitals removed and thrown into the Mariana Trench. The Ovarian Beam-O-Death is only active for the five days leading up to the onset of menses.

e.g., Ken is missing and Lisa is suspected of Ovarian Beamacide. Only his Hiroshima blast shadow was left on the kitchen wall.

overshare - Chosen as word of the year for 2014 by the Chambers Dictionary folks. "Chambers has gone for overshare, which it defines as 'to be unacceptably forthcoming with information about oneís personal life,' commenting that it was 'beautifully British' and a 'subtle yet devastating' put-down. That's not a complete definition, as it can also mean inappropriately supplying detailed personal information to a stranger online; it has also been used for deliberately giving intimate details of a relationship in order to shame oneís former partner. It's neither British nor new, as it was first recorded as teen slang in the US in the 1990s and appeared in print in The New York Times as early as 1998. Apart from that, itís quite a good choice." | Giving out more information than necessary -- sharing an experience to the point of embarrassing or disgusting the listener.

e.g., It's one thing to overshare with an anonymous stranger on a bus (plane, train, automobile), quite another to overshare with potentially hundreds, thousand, or millions online. | "So that's when my mom told me about her first sexual experience." "Whoa, Bob. Stop right there -- overshare."

owling - "Owling, believed to have started in Australia, consists of nothing more taxing than crouching on one's haunches and staring into the middle distance like the nocturnal birds." The practice reminded me of a Greek Theater pep rally at the University of Arkansas in the fall of 1959. We assumed the posture described, but it wasn't called owling -- we didn't stare into the distance. Rumor had it at the time that photographs were being taken for some national magazine, perhaps The Saturday Evening Post, Life, or Time. I'm not sure we had a name for what we were doing other than the common word hunkering. What possessed us to do it? Nothing more than being college students, as far as I know.

e.g., Owling was reported as a craze in The Times of India on July 16. Will it survive a month before being supplanted by something else -- is owling already dead? How long did planking last?

Prior to WWII about eleven million people spoke Yiddish; newspapers and books were published in the language, and there was Yiddish theater in Europe, the United States and Latin America. "Oy!" can mean any number of things, depending on the context and the way it is said. It can express both dejection and joy; ecstasy and horror. "Oy Vay" literally means "oh pain," but it is often used to express just the opposite. A book titled The Joys of Yiddish, by Leo Rosten, lists 29 ways the expression "Oy!" can be used.
