"Word Smiths"?

Having trouble keeping up with all those crazy kid's lingo? Try visiting Word Spy regularly and stay updated and in the know.
Need a few new words to upgrade your next conversation from "blase" to "semi-cool"? Try these:

scalper-bot n. A software program designed to purchase online a large number of tickets for a concert, show, or other event, enabling the person running the software to sell the tickets for a profit. Also: scalper bot.

Potterhead n. A person who is a big fan of the Harry Potter series of books. Also: Potter-head.

carbage n. The garbage that accumulates in some cars, particularly in the back seat. [Blend of car and garbage.]

Boyzilian n. A Brazilian bikini wax applied to a man. Also: boyzilian, boy-zilian.

I know I'll use potterhead. I hope to work carbage into a convo, and I don't ever want to use boyzilian.
Although it does remind me of another youth pastor who had to explain to a young man in his youth group that if he's going to ride his shorts and drawers so low then he might to "trim things up" down there. Sometimes working with youth has its awkward moments...gotta love it!
