u - (n.) In traditional logic, a statement some condition applies ONLY if another condition applies.

e.g., Traditional logic used "A" for positive generalizations, "E" for negative generalizations, "I" for positive particulars, and "O" for negative particulars, thus: A: Everyone who was invited came to the party. E: No one who was invited came to the party. I: Some of those who were invited came to the party. O: Some of those who were invited did not come to the party. A "U" statement would thus be something like this: U: Only those who were invited came to the party.

uncle - (v.) 1. To score points against oneself or one's own team, usually by mistake (as in dunking the basketball in one's own basket), but sometimes intentionally, for purposes either strategic or nefarious, as in accepting a safety (in American football) or taking a dive (in boxing); 2. to have one's own actions backfire, figuratively scoring points for the other side. ↵ ␊↵ ␊ [From "own goal," used as a verb, through the intermediate forms "own-goal," "owngle," and "ongle."]

e.g., I remember a guy recovering a fumble (in American Football) and uncling the ball back 60 yards into his own end zone. He didn't notice that his own teammates were trying to tackle him and that the other team was just standing around. ↵ ␊↵ ␊ The 1919 baseball World Series was marred by perhaps the most infamous uncle of all uncles: the Black Sox Scandal, involving eight of the Chicago White Sox. The eight players were accused of intentionally losing the World Series to the Cincinnati Reds at the behest of and upon payment by a group of powerful gamblers. Condemned by baseball commissioner Kenesaw Mountain Landis---despite being acquitted after their trial---the eight were banned from pro baseball, apparently forever, since I'm told the ban is still (pointlessly) in effect. (The last living member of the eight "Black Sox," Charlie "Swede" Risberg, died in 1975.) ↵ ␊↵ ␊ The idiot uncled himself: he planted a bomb in one of two identical cars, and then he drove away in the one he'd sabotaged. When he set off the bomb by remote, he only blew himself up.

uncyclopedia - A parody of the 2001-debuting site, Wikipedia. Uncyclopedia is only available through Wikia, for it is a site made by an amateur (or maybe intermediate, but not professional) with a Wikia account. The reason it is a Wikipedia parody is because Uncyclopedia has articles on outrageous things that don't exist, as well as articles about normal things that contain completely twisted, untrue information. You would not want to use it for a professional report, but you might use it for something to laugh at, for it is quite hilarious.

Example: Susan Rice making the rounds of the Sunday talk shows September 16 and misleading the public about the attack on the Benghazi consulate. (Having specifically noted it at the time, I know how she qualified what she was saying: "But our current best assessment, based on the information that we have at present. . . .") |   "An inferior in any office, or department": a deputy assistant junior official. |   "An assistant subject to the authority or control of another." |   The Concise Oxford Dictionary of English Etymology, 1996: "underling, subordinate.

Weird Words: Understrapper The British author and newspaper columnist Simon Hoggart is fond of this word, applying it particularly to a governmental minion sent to make a statement before the House of Commons, thereby taking abuse that should have been directed at his boss. Few people now would grasp the full import of the word, though its first element gives enough of a clue that it’s an alternative to underling. It was a popular term of the eighteenth century, its first user on record being Thomas Brown, a satirist now only remembered, if at all, for a verse translation of a Latin epigram he composed when under threat of being sent down by his Oxford tutor, Dr John Fell: I do not love thee, Dr Fell, / The reason why I cannot tell; / But this I know, and know full well, / I do not love thee, Dr Fell. In 1702, he wrote a book of mock letters from the recently deceased, including three supposedly from the late comic actor and satirical writer Joseph Haines to his friends at Will’s Coffee House: I intend to build me a Stage in one of the largest Piazza’s of this city, take me a fine House, and set up my old Trade of Fortune-telling; and as I shall have upon occasion now and then for some Understrapper to draw teeth for me, or to be my Toad-eater upon the stage, if you will accept of so mean an Employment, beside my old Cloaths, which will be something, Ill give you Meat, Drink, Washing, and Lodging, and Four Marks per annum. Letters from the Dead to the Living, by Thomas Brown, 1702. The wayward apostrophes are as printed. It was still common during the nineteenth century: Dear me very awkward! said Stephen, rather en l’air, and confused with the kind of confusion that assails an understrapper when he has been enlarged by accident to the dimensions of a superior, and is somewhat rudely pared down to his original size. A Pair of Blue Eyes, by Thomas Hardy, 1873. My Collins Dictionary explains the second part as being from one sense of the verb strap, to work hard, which is also the source of the adjective strapping for someone big and strong (originally applied only to young women, by the way). A strapper could be a labourer or a man who groomed horses, hence a menial employee. His subordinate would be the ultimate underling. If you would like an archaic alternative, try under-spur-leather, which is from the same area of life. A spur-leather was the strap that secured a spur to the rider’s foot, so somebody under the spur leather is figuratively beneath the heel of the rider. There is a notorious Idiot, one hight Whachum, who from an under-spur-leather to the Law, is become an understrapper to the Play house, who has lately burlesqu’d the Metamorphoses of Ovid by a vile translation. Remarks upon Mr Pope’s Translation of Homer, by John Dennis, 1717. Hight: named. I offer it to Mr Hoggart for his consideration.

e.g., Do you wonder how Susan Rice is enjoying her role as understrapper for obama? | Women members of the Congressional Black Caucus have protested that Senators Lindsay Graham and John McCain were racist and sexist when they questioned UN Ambassador Susan Rice's fitness to be Secretary of State. If anyone abused her, wouldn't it be the President for sending an understrapper to speak for him? Or, as obama apparently saw it, sending a girl out to do a man's job.    The following examples come from    He is perhaps best known for his series of spy novels which follow Harry Fielding's activities as an understrapper for the MI5 . . . .

undocumented immigrants - Criminal aliens, illegal aliens, illegal immigrants, etc. My primary objection to illegal aliens is not that I think too many foreigners come to the United States. What I object is that so many foreigners living in the United States are living here illegally -- either having entered illegally or overstayed their visas illegally. If we've going to have what amount to open borders, we should make it legal. Otherwise, we'll continue on the road to becoming a nation of scofflaws. Are there other countries that let those who are in the country illegally run around freely, take jobs from citizens, and get put on the public dole? Ignore the rule of law at your peril.

e.g., For Christ's sake, stop the poppycock politically correct doublespeak and call these people what they are: illegal aliens (or illegals). They aren't simply migrants without papers or undocumented immigrants; they're in the United States illegally and should be treated as such.

undocumented offender - The politically correct way to refer to an illegal alien criminal (often a felon) in San Francisco.

e.g., Turns out that maybe as many as 30% of the undocumented juvenile offenders Mayor Gavin Newsom had been giving free housing weren't minors after all.

T_B: As he might say himself, "Undoubtably he will." Emcee: I think it's likely that he lacks the wherewithal to get a PhD -- no matter what his field of study is. T_B: You're probably right. Emcee: Well, the evidence we've seen so far is that he can neither read nor write well enough to get one. T_B: That's why I suggested his initials must stand for dim-witted. Emcee: He also has trouble following logical arguments. T_B: That must mean he can't reason very well. Emcee: Agreed. Not a chance he'll be able to do the original research necessary and sufficient to get a PhD. T_B: Necessary? Sufficient? Do they still require that? Emcee: I'm not sure. I think so. Anyway, he definitely isn't up to the standards of the guys with PhDs that used to report to my managers in the engineering department.

I am not sure why this helps understand "up to NJ," though.
