    *SALAD DODGER.
    An excellent phrase for an overweight person.
    *SWAMP-DONKEY
    A deeply unattractive person.
    *TESTICULATING.
    Waving your arms around and talking bollocks.
    *BLAMESTORMING.
    Sitting round in a group, discussing why a deadline was missed or a
    project failed, and who was responsible.
    *SEAGULL MANAGER.
    A manager who flies in, makes a lot of noise, craps on everything, and

    The experience of spending an entire day swimming upstream only to get
    screwed and die.
    *CUBE FARM.
    An office filled with cubicles.
    *PRAIRIE DOGGING.
    When someone yells or drops something loudly in a cube farm, and
    people's heads pop up over the walls to see what's going on. (This also
    applies to applause for a promotion because there may be cake.)

    *MONKEY BATH .
    A bath so hot, that when lowering yourself in, you go: 'Oo! Oo! Oo!
    Aa! Aa! Aa!'.
    *MYSTERY BUS.
    The bus that arrives at the pub on Friday night while you're in the
    toilet after your 10th pint, and whisks away all the unattractive people so
    the pub is suddenly packed with stunners when you come back in.
    *MYSTERY TAXI.
    The taxi that arrives at your place on Saturday morning before you wake
    up, whisks away the stunner you slept with, and leaves a 10-Pinter in your
    bed instead.
    *BEER COAT.
    The invisible but warm coat worn when walking home after a booze cruise
    At 3:00am .
    *BEER COMPASS.

    you got here, and where you've come from.
    *BREAKING THE SEAL.
    Your first pee in the pub, usually after 2 hours of drinking. After
    breaking the seal of your bladder, repeat visits to the toilet will be
    required every 10 or 15 minutes for the rest of the night.
