bokra - (rhymes with "LOCK-rah"; n.) a novel or unorthodox approach to a problem which is, nevertheless, effective---so effective, sometimes, as to shift perspectives or shake up the accepted paradigm. [This comes from a very old story about the Persian polymath and physician Avicenna (born Abū Alī al-Husayn ibn Abd Allāh ibn Sīnā, 980-1037---it was the "ibn Sina" that gave rise to the name by which he came to be known as "Avicenna" to generations of scholars all over Europe). He was approached one day about a greatly troubled young nobleman suffering from a serious psychosis. He apparently believed himself to be a cow and would Moo loudly and cry "Moo! Moo! I am a cow; slay me! so that an excellent broth may be made from my flesh!" The young man's father had gone to every physician he could find, and he called upon Avicenna (the greatest mind of the era) in desperation. The brilliant but unorthodox Avicenna, instead of tying the young man down or dosing him with potions, he came into the sickroom dressed as a butcher, with a large meat cleaver, and called out "where is this cow? I have come to slay it, so that an excellent broth may be made from its flesh!" The young man mooed loudly so that Avicenna could find him, but when Avicenna came to him, he felt his ribs and said, "This cow is sickly and thin. A fine broth cannot be made from the flesh of this sickly cow. Let it be fed and exercised, so that a fine broth may be made of its flesh." Thereupon, the young man began to eat, sleep, and exercise, so that he could be a healthy and tasty cow. Soon, however, his regimen restored his health, both physical and mental, and he was completely restored. In Arabic, "where is this cow?" is "men al baqra" (at least, so I'm told by an Arabic manual---I could very well be mistaken). So bokra "cow" is my word for brilliant but unconventional solutions to serious problems.]

e.g., The Pringles Potato Chip can was a bokra of a packaging solution.

bonkbuster - Added to the OED's online version in 2002: "a type of popular novel characterised by frequent sexual encounters between the characters." Sue Limb says she came up with the word in 1988 "after a publisher asked for a 'big thick book with lots of bonking in it.'" It wasn't a huge step, she says, to go from blockbuster to bonkbuster.

e.g., So, what books have you read lately, Chris? Anything besides the latest bonkbuster?  

Kerry Katona and friends in the Return of the Bonkbuster “Oh God, oh God, you’re too sexy! I’m not sure I can make it to the bedroom,” panted Harry Levin, his tongue licking Molly’s neck like a hungry wolf. They had only just burst in through the front door and already Harry’s hand had plunged down Molly’s halter-neck to grab at her. . . .”  

Gripping stuff, but not entirely appropriate for a family newspaper. Apologies then to fans of vintage Jackie Collins and Jilly Cooper who are gagging for a time when books were filled with insatiable über-millionaires on the prowl for premier-league sex and glamorous heroines with a real thirst for power. But their prayers are about to be answered. After decades of neglect, the bonkbuster is back. It’s bye-bye Bridget Jones and the misery of single life in a bedsit, and hello the champagne lifestyle of Russian oligarchs, supermodels and WAGs, set against the international backdrop of five-star hotels, yachts and private jets. . . .

booger-ent - (Also "bogey-ent"; n.) 1. A particular (and peculiar) method (or "art") of removing a booger from the nose: Apparently, one simply places the fingertip upon a still-gelatinous bogey until it adheres to the finger rather than the inner nostril, and is thus easily removed, simply coming free without having to be scraped along the nose tissue [yeah, I know]; 2. Someone who practices this ... odd nose-picking methodology. [A reference to an event in "Flotsam and Jetsam," Chapter 9 of _The Two Towers_ (Book II of _The Lord of the Rings_). Therein, Treebeard, the old ent, fixes his hands to the walls of Isengard, and, like the work of roots over many years, crumbles the wall and pulls it down. Orthanc is not a booger; but the comparison seemed to make sense at the time.]

e.g., So, this one guy was stopped at the light for, like, two minute. The light must've been busted, and everyone else was shouting and honking. But this guy just sat there staring at the light with his finger up his nose. Now, everybody uses intersections for nose-picking, I know, but this guy was bogey-ent zen or something.

    boonie chicken - n. A theoretical creature found in parts of North America which are considered to be extremely rural.
