when the cows come home

☞ For a long time, as in You can keep asking till the cows come home, but you still may not go bungee-jumping. This term alludes to when the cows return to the barn for milking. [Late 1500s] 

Crow's Foot. (often by Pl) 
  1. A wrinkle or wrinkles at the outer corner of the eye. Often used in the plural: got a face-lift to get rid of crow's-feet.

브리오니 정장
is a 
high fashion clothing company founded in 1945. From the beginning, Brioni suits were luxuries only afforded to the privileged few, namely Europe's wealthy aristocrats. Celebrities began to buy their suits from Brioni in the 1950s when Rome became a popular vacation spot for wealthy Americans. New York crime boss John Gotti earned the nickname 'Dapper Don' after his extensive wardrobe of custom Brioni suits. Today, Brioni is a favorite of real estate mogul Donald Trump. Brioni suits have appeared in a number of James Bond movies starring Pierce Brosnan since 1995. It is rumored that a Middle Eastern sultan once ordered a staggering 100 suits from Brioni all in one month.

Turkish Taffy

was a chewy taffy-like candy bar, which came in several flavors. It was invented by Victor Bonomo (pronounced /ˈbɒnəmoʊ/), aSephardic Jew with whose father, Albert J. Bonomo, had emigrated from Turkey and founded the Bonomo Company in Coney Island, New York in 1897, producing saltwater taffy and hard candies. [1]

According to Tico Bonomo, son of Victor, Turkish Taffy "was not really a taffy, but what is technically known as a short nougat," consisting of a batter ofcorn syrup and egg whites that was cooked and then baked. It was also not Turkish, but created after World War II in the Bonomo factory. It has been marketed in vanilla, chocolate, strawberry and banana. Originally distributed through Woolworth's stores in large sheets which were broken off with ball-peen hammers at the counter and sold by weight, in the late 1940s the company released a version in candy-bar size which the purchaser would whack against a hard surface to break it into more bite-sized pieces. Since the pieces were both chewy and slow-melting in the mouth, it was a favorite for the frugal customer.[1] A bar still cost 5¢ in the 1960s.

In 1949, Turkish Taffy became one of the first forms of candy advertised and marketed on television, when Bonomo created and sponsored The Magic Clown on NBC Television. Tico Bonomo specifically cited the decision to use television as instrumental in the popularity of the candy-bar sized taffys.[2]

In 1980 the candy became part of the Tootsie Roll Industries of Chicago line of candies, and was discontinued in 1989.[1]


is the medical term used to reference the heart. From Greek kardia: heart. The Greek spelling using k is the reason for the usage of K in EKG (electrocardiogram).

Also used in reference to exercises and/or equipment intended for cardiovascular fitness and endurance training (aerobic exercise). A common usage of the term is "to do cardio", which means to engage in running or other endurance training for a set period of time.

Hair Plug

Hair transplantation
involves relocating (transplanting) bald resistant hair follicles from the back and sides of the head (the donor areas) to a person’s bald or thinning areas. The transplanted hair follicles will typically grow hair for a lifetime because they are genetically resistant to going bald. In recent years hair transplantation techniques have evolved from using large plugs and mini grafts to exclusively using large numbers of small grafts that contain from between 1 to 4 hairs.....Hair transplantation differs from skin grafting in that grafts contain almost all of the epidermis and dermis surrounding the hair follicle, and many tiny grafts are transplanted rather than a single strip of skin.

Elective Procedure

An elective surgery is a planned, non-emergency surgical procedure. It may be either medically required (e.g., cataract surgery), or optional (e.g., breast augmentation or implant) surgery.

Elective surgeries may extend life or improve the quality of life physically and/or psychologically. Cosmetic and reconstructive procedures, such as a facelift (rhytidectomy), tummy tuck (abdominoplasty), or nose surgery (rhinoplasty) may not be medically indicated, but they may benefit the patient in terms of raising self-esteem. Other procedures, such as cataract surgery, improve functional quality of life even though they are technically an "optional" or elective procedure.

Some elective procedures are necessary to prolong life, such as an angioplasty. However, unlike emergency surgery (e.g., appendectomy), which must be performed immediately, a required elective procedure can be scheduled at the patient's and surgeon's convenience.

  • Plastic surgery. Cosmetic or reconstructive surgery that improves appearance and in some cases, physical function.
  • Refractive surgery. Laser surgery for vision correction.
  • Gynecological surgery. Either medically necessary or optional surgery (e.g., hysterectomy, tubal ligation).
  • Exploratory or diagnostic surgery. Surgery to determine the origin and extent of a medical problem, or to biopsy tissue samples.
  • Cardiovascular surgery. Non-emergency procedures to improve blood flow or heart function, such as angioplasty or the implantation of a pacemaker.
  • Musculoskeletal system surgery. Orthopedic surgical procedures, such as hip replacement and ACL reconstruction.
  • Honey Nut Cheerios

    is a variation of Cheerios breakfast cereal, introduced in 1979 by General Mills. As the first variation from Cheerios, it is sweeter than the original, with a honey and almond flavor. While this product used to be made with actual nuts, as of 2006, the nuts were discontinued, and natural almond flavor used instead.

    A health maintenance organization (HMO)

    is a type of managed care organization (MCO) that provides a form of health care coverage in the United States that is fulfilled through hospitals, doctors, and other providers with which the HMO has a contract. The Health Maintenance Organization Act of 1973 required employers with 25 or more employees to offer federally certified HMO options.[1] Unlike traditional indemnity insurance, an HMO covers only care rendered by those doctors and other professionals who have agreed to treat patients in accordance with the HMO's guidelines and restrictions in exchange for a steady stream of customers.

    Mickey Mouse degrees

    is the dysphemism built from the common usage of the term "Mickey Mouse" as a pejorative. (See Pejorative use of Mickey's name). It came to prominence in the UK after use by the national tabloids of the United Kingdom to label certain university degree courses worthless or irrelevant.

    The term was used by education minister Margaret Hodge, during a discussion on higher education expansion.[1] Hodge defined a Mickey Mouse course as "one where the content is perhaps not as rigorous as one would expect and where the degree itself may not have huge relevance in the labour market"; and that, furthermore, "simply stacking up numbers on Mickey Mouse courses is not acceptable". This opinion is often raised in the summer when exam results are released and new university courses revealed. The phrase took off in the late 1990s, as the Labour government created the target of having 50% of students in higher education by 2010.[2] This, along with a funding crisis, resulted in a major increase in degree course places, and at present there are more course places available than there are qualified students,[citation needed] resulting in hundreds every year going to university despite poor A-level grades.

    adj. extremely gigantic; extremely enormous (combination of the words gigantic and enormous)

    "Screwed the pooch," meaning "made a terrible mistake," is a cleaned-up paraphrase that author Tom Wolfe popularized. Wolfe's book "The Right Stuff," which dealt with the early years of America's manned space program, used the phrase "screwed the pooch" in describing a calamitous error made by Mercury Astronaut Gus Grissom:  
    "But now - surely! - it was so obvious! Grissom had just screwed the pooch! In flight tests, if you did something that stupid, if you destroyed a major prototype through some lame-brain mistake such as hitting the wrong button - you were through! You'd be lucky to end up in Flight Engineering. Oh, it was obvious to everybody at Edwards [Air Force Base] that Grissom had just f*cked it, screwed the pooch, that was all."  (from page 230 of "The Right Stuff," by Tom Wolfe)  
    The original military term (with an asterisk which I've substituted for a vowel) was "f*cked the dog," which generally referred to military men goofing off on the job, rather than to catastrophic errors: 

    "Screw the Pooch The phrase screw the pooch, meaning to mess up, commit a grievous error, was made famous in Tom Wolfe's book The Right Stuff. The phrase is a euphemism from US military slang. The original expression was f*ck the dog and meant to waste time, to loaf on the job. F*ck the dog dates appears in print for the first time in 1935, but in 1918 another euphemistic version, feeding the dog, appears. The original sense dates to 1918. Over the decades, the meaning shifted to the current sense and the screw the pooch wording took the place of the original phrasing." 

    Etymologies & Word Origins [http://www.wordorigins.org/wordors.htm]

    "The phrase 'screw the pooch' itself was derived from an earlier phrase that was quite familiar to those of us in the service in WW2. I was a Fire Control Computer technician (Fire Controlman) in the US Navy 1944-1946.

    Anyone who has ever been in the military has spent an inordinate amount of time in a 'stand-by' formation waiting for someone to get the orders to start some activity. Many man-hours were spent in an activity that was commonly known as 'Effing the dog.' [Note: They didn't really say, 'Effing,' but I'm sure you can figure it out.] Back home in civilian life this was cleaned up to the slightly more acceptable 'screwing the pooch."

    The Kennedy Center Honors
    is an annual honor given to those in the performing arts for their lifetime of contributions to American culture. The Honors have been presented annually since 1978 in Washington, D.C., during gala weekend-long events which culminate in a performance for—and honoring—the Honorees at the Kennedy Center Opera House.[1]

    The Honors were created by George Stevens, Jr. and the late Nick Vanoff; as of 2008, Stevens remains involved as producer and co-writer for the Honors Gala. From 1978 until 2002, the ceremony was hosted by Walter Cronkite;[2] since 2003, it has been hosted by Caroline Kennedy.

    Security Blanket

    is any familiar object whose presence provides comfort or security to its owner, such as the literal blankets often favoured by small children. It is a comfort object and is also known as a "security object." The phrase "security blanket" was popularized in the Peanuts comic strip created by Charles M. Schulz, who gave such a blanket to his character Linus van Pelt. A popular name for a security blanket is "blanky" (sometimes "banky"). Another term is "wubby", which was popularized by the 1983 film Mr. Mom.

    English psychoanalyst Donald Winnicott spoke of transitional objects, loosely equivalent to the security blanket. Stuffed animals are sometimes carried in emergency vehicles and police patrol cars, to be given to children involved in an accident or traumatic event, to provide them comfort, thus filling a similar role.

    Research with children on this subject was performed at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee by Richard H. Passman and his associates. Among other findings, they showed that security blankets are appropriately named — they actually do give security to those children attached to them. Along with other positive benefits, having a security blanket available can help children adapt to new situations, aid in their learning, and adjust to physicians' and clinical psychologists' evaluations. Dr. Passman's research also points out that there is nothing abnormal about being attached to them. About 60% of children in the United States have at least some attachment to a security object.

    The Schwinn Bicycle Company
    was founded by Ignaz Schwinn inChicago in 1895 and became the dominant manufacturer of Americanbicycles through most of the 20th century. The company's rise and fall in fortunes over its lifetime has been widely used to illustrate the issues faced by entrenched companies in a dynamic and changing marketing environment.

    Kryptonite Lock
    In the early 1970s, Michael Zane was a free-spirited, bearded kid with a VW van and a big idea for a new kind of lock. He traveled thousands of miles showing the unique U-shaped locking device and spreading his passion for bicycle security to bike dealers all around the country and forged lifetime relationships. The company soon expanded its product line to include powersports, hardware and snowsports security. Through innovative product designs, incredible marketing savvy, legendary customer service and pure fanaticism for security, Kryptonite grew with a cult-like following. That following only grew after hearing Kryptonite's legendary stories of leaving bicycles locked in New York City for days with the Kryptonite lock and bike still being there. In 2001, the company that was started in a VW van was purchased by industry giant Ingersoll Rand (NYSE: IR) and became a flagship brand in its Security Technologies sector. Publications such as Bicycling, Fortune, The Wall Street Journal, US News & World Report and a host of others continued to tout Kryptonite products as the best on the market. The company continued showing thieves and competitors alike that it was more focused and better than ever.

    During the fall of 2004, it was discovered that the industry-standard tubular cylinder, used in most brands of portable security products, could be compromised, at times, with a household item. Kryptonite flew into action, created a voluntary lock exchange program and replaced over 400,000 locks in 21 countries for. To do this, the company redesigned the equivalent of 9 years worth of new products in just 10 short months. Kryptonite is the only company in the world that offered such a comprehensive plan to customers, taking its 'legendary customer service' pledge to new heights. The people at Kryptonite have a pure passion for creating the best security in the world. It's their innovative product designs, intimate knowledge of market trends and complete commitment to customers that will continue to keep the competition striving to reach the high bar Kryptonite sets and allows their customers to feel free to stop wherever they want.
    The Bic Cristal
    is an inexpensive, mass-produced ballpoint pen sold by Société Bic ofClichy, Hauts-de-SeineFrance. The Bic Cristal pen was designed in 1950 by the Décolletage Plastique Design Team at Société Bic.[1][2] It is made from polystyrene (transparent barrel), polypropylene (cap and ink reservoir tube), tungsten carbide (ball) and brass/nickel silver (tip) and comes in blue, black, red and green.[1][2] The pen's lid has a small hole to prevent choking if swallowed.[3][1]

    Marcel Bich secured the patent to the ballpoint pen, invented by László Bíró, and in 1950 gave the world the Bic pen.[1] He chose the name Bic as a shortened, easy-to-remember version of his name.[1] It has been acknowledged as an industrial design masterpiece and has been celebrated as such in an exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City and forms part of that museum's permanent collection.[2][4]

    Lower the Boom 

    1. To deliver a knockout punch. Prize fight use.
    2. To chatise or punish; to attack with criticism; to treat sternly; to demand obedience. ... 
    3. To prevent another from succeeding; to act in such a manner as to harm another's chances od success. 

    From Dictionary of American Slang (1960) by H. Wentworth & S.B. Flexner. 
    lower the the boom on ... This expression refers to the boom of a sailboat -- a long spar that extends from the mast to hold the foot of the sail. In a changing wind, the boom can swing wildly, leaving one at risk of being struck. [Slang; first half of 1900s] 

    From The American Heritage Dictionary of Idioms (1997) by Christine Ammer. 
    As a sailor, the story ran, he had knocked men overboard with a single punch, when he "lowered the boom" on them. (Dempsey & Stearns, Round by Round, 1940)

    LOWER THE BOOM - "to reprimand harshly, to stop someone from doing something. A boom is a long spar or pole used to extend the bottom of certain sails; or, it can be a spar that extends upward at an angle from the foot of a mast from which there are suspended objects to be lifted. Derrick, the famous hangman during the reign of Queen Elizabeth I, devised the prototype for the ship's boom - a hoist that still bears the inventor's name. Ashore, lowering the boom on someone means to call that person harshly to account. This can be done severely enough to leave one's ears ringing." From "When a Loose Cannon Flogs a Dead Horse There's the Devil to Pay: Seafaring Words in Everyday Speech" by Olivia A. Isil (International Marine/Ragged Mountain Press, McGraw-Hill, 1996)

    Berry Blast

    A Seven and Seven (also known as a Seven Seven)

    is a mixed drink made with Seagram's 7 whisky and 7 Up. It is typically served in a highball glass with ice. It is commonly made with 1 shot of whisky to 6 fluid ounces of 7 Up. A lemon garnish may complete the drink.

    Clusterfuck (plural Clusterfucks)

    (vulgar) A chaotic mess that might be compared to group sex, in which participants are so intertwined and intermingled that they might penetrate each other rather than their intended target. Its more precise usage describes a particular kind of Catch-22, in which multiple complicated problems mutually interfere with each other's solution. The looser usage, referring to any chaotic situation, probably prevails.
