pip - Pool In Pool. An inflatable pool you put inside your own pool, and you and your friends can just chill in it with all of your clothes on. It acts as a boat, but is much more comfortable. | Privately Insured Patient. Google «”Doctors pocket about $20 for each Medicaid patient they see. By contrast, an hour with a privately insured patient means payment of up to $260.”» and you’ll find an article that tells how few doctors now belong to the AMA, ~17%. The article says one of the contributing factors for the low participation rate is the AMA’s support for Obamacare and that, in general, doctors don’t feel that the AMA does a very good job of representing their and their patients’ interests.

e.g., Let's go PIPping. | Let's go sit in the PIP. || Excerpt selected for googling for its spin. The problem, as I see it, with the quotation is that doctors rarely spend an hour with a patient. Fifteen minutes is probably more like it. That would bring the hourly compensation for seeing Medicaid patients to $80. That’s still less than a third of the compensation for seeing PIPs, yes, but the disparity is probably not as bad as you’re led to believe. The article does go on in the next paragraph to mention that obliquely.

pirate paradox - (n.) an economic hypothesis holding that crime is, ultimately, self-limiting -- just as piracy relies for its continued existence upon ongoing merchant shipping.

platespeak -

Double-Tongued Dictionary Quotation: Is one of Britain’s best-loved dialects, the curious language of personalised number plates, heading for oblivion? … Those who cannot afford the best plates have been forced to use a bit of ingenuity to get close to the word or words they really want. Such owners rely on “platespeak,” as it is known in the business, to compose their unique signage — substituting a “5” for an “S,” for example, a “4” for an “A,” and so on.
Grant Barret's site may well be the ne plus ultra of sites recording changes in the English language -- not a just-foolin'-around site like the PseudoDictionary, but the genuine article, run by a top-notch professional linguist.

e.g., Dammit, I was having enough trouble figuring out what those way-too-cute vanity plates had on them before. Now I'm going to have to deal with platespeak and what amounts to hieroglyphics to a geezer like me. (ED. God, it was hard to resist being pompous and writing "a geezer such as I." But I managed to do it, didn't I? … Or did I?)

platonic shadow - "A non-sexual friendship with a member of the opposite sex" is how this was defined in the pd in early 2001. Somehow that definition got deleted. From Douglas Coupland's "Generation X." We have no idea who the original submitter was. Given the teachings of Plato, it would seem to be better to have a platonic shadow refer to a person.

e.g., "Neither has any romantic interest in the other: They are platonic shadows to each other." "Does that also mean you think there's such thing as a romantic interest that's non-sexual?" "Of course. Where in the world would the idea that romance always involves sex or interest in sex come from? Haven't you heard of political romances?"

playerette -

Female version of a player -- player meaning a male who has many sexual partners and little or no commitment to any of them. Some would undoubtedly argue that we don't need playerette -- just refer to players, regardless of the sex (or gender, I suppose) of the frequent flyer.  
The Routledge Dictionary defines player this way: "a person who takes pride in the number of sexual partners they have, not in the depth of any relationship; a selfish pleasure-seeker US, 1968." TRD makes no distinction as to the sex of the pleasure-seeker. That's OK, but we're here to make up new words more than be sticks-in-the-mud and give new meanings of old words. We do both, of course, but have a preference for the former.  
We still use the English suffix -ette suffix to form distinctly feminine nouns such as majorette and usherette. We also have bachelorette for an unmarried young woman. I'm convinced that some feminine forms are here to stay. For example, bachelorette. When we start calling such women bachelors, I'll -- well, I won't be doing anything. I'll be all mellowed out and taking it easy in my urn. Another feminine form we'll be keeping: heiress. And I'd hardly be surprised to see the current trend to call females who act actors reverting to calling them actresses. In case you haven't noticed, the Academy Awards still give an award for Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role. I don't expect that to change any time soon -- but it might. I've been wrong before; otherwise, I'd be a lot richer than I am.  
We continue to move in the direction of a genderless society in terms of the nouns we use to refer to people. It gets harder and harder to tell from a noun whether the person referred to is female or male, presumably as a sop to the entirely valid notion that the sexes are equal -- except when it comes to sports. (Folks younger than I am might say equality of the genders.) Not too many girls or women slam-dunking a basketball or hitting a golf ball 350 yards or more. Not only do I still cling to my guns and religion, I cling to what I learned -- that gender has to do with categories in English: common, feminine, masculine, or neuter. We used to have a committee chairman (the United State Senate still does), but now we have a committee chair -- who sits in a chair.  
Who thinks society has advanced since girls and women started emulating rakes and roués? Do we have a suitable noun for such women? Possible synonyms: angel, babe, bathing beauty, beauty queen, bimbo, broad, bunny, callet, centerfold, chick, cockodile, cover girl, cupcake, cutie, cutie-pie, dame, dish, doll, dollface, doxy, dream girl, dreamboat, female, floozy, fox, gal, girl, glamor girl, good-looking woman, honey, hot dish, hot number, hussy, jade, Jezebel, lady, lassie, loose woman, minx, miss, moll, peach, pin-up, player, raving beauty, sex bunny, sex kitten, sex pot, skirt, slut, strumpet, sweet thing, tart, tomato, tootsie, tramp, trull, trailer trash, trollop, vamp, wench, whore.

e.g., "You're really not being fair when you refer to a woman who has lots of sex partners as a slut or a tramp. You don't use such damning nouns to refer to men who behave similarly; you call them players. Why not call their female counterparts playerettes?" "Playerettes? That sounds like you're talking about diminutive men, not women who fool around with lots of guys."

playing gooseberry - From the Bloomsbury Dictionary of Word Origins:"'play gooseberry,' or to be an uncomfortably superfluous 3rd person between two lovers, goes back to the early 19th century and may have originated in the notion of a chaperone (ostensibly) occupying herself with picking gooseberries while the couple being chaperoned did what they were doing (gooseberry-picker was an early 19th century term for a chaperone." | To play gooseberry is to be a third wheel.  
A gooseberry might often (even usually) be unwanted and unwelcome, but such is not necessarily the case.

e.g., While I certainly don't relish the idea of playing gooseberry, "I think I’d rather be a gooseberry-picker than a candle-holder." | I have a sneaking suspicion that getting a girlfriend to play gooseberry is a stratagem used by teenage girls to be able to spend time with boyfriends unpopular with their parents. | "What are you and Earlene going to be doing tonight, dear?" "We'll be at her house. She needs me to play gooseberry." "Say what?" | "Almost all references I've seen to playing gooseberry seem to make the gooseberry in question unwanted and unneeded. As someone whose life role is seemingly to be the gooseberry, I disagree with that. The gooseberry can be a person invited along to punctuate the nervous silences on first dates, a veritable jester for the lovestruck."

playing the game of "flog" - "Golf" spelled backwards. In the world of golf, the term represents a situation when a player starts off quite well, but then success suddenly reverses, and the player struggles ineptly on, stuck in a game of golfing disasters.

e.g., !What a golf game Winn Elliott was having! He hit par on the first hole, birdied the second, parred the third, and, surprise, surprise, eagled the fourth! Brimming with enthusiasm and confidence, Winn approached the fifth hole. He picked up his driver, took a few practice wings, then swung hard, and topped the tee shot, which dribbled 15 feet in the fairway. His second shot sliced deep into the woods. His third shot sailed out of the woods and into a sand trap. After two attempts to clear the sand, he landed in the rough about 50 yards from the green. Once on the green, it took three taps with the putter to get the ball in the hole. Winn wiped the sweat off his face with his hand. He could see it very clearly. Gone was the enjoyable round of golf. Now, and for the rest of the miserable day, he would be playing the game of "flog."

pleonexia - “Pleonexia — (Plē-ō-nĕx´-ia) — the insatiable desire for more; a condition of deep dissatisfaction with what one has; seeking fulfillment through the acquisition of possessions, prestige, or power.”


“Besides being a great word that’s a lot of fun to say, pleonexia is an insightful description of much of modern culture — including church culture — in the United States.  At an individual level, people organize their entire lives around getting — getting homes, jobs, money, cars, clothes, (in my case, books), toys, and then getting bigger, newer, fancier, costlier versions of each.  It is like a disease — which is why pleonexia is such a great word.  It sounds like a disease.

“Viral pleonexia is infecting our churches, pushing us to pursue bigger sanctuaries, bigger staffs, bigger budgets, bigger program, bigger parking lots, bigger projection screens, and even bigger egos.  No matter how much we have, we want more — even when we don’t very well manage what we already have.  Bigger is better, no matter the cost.  Money, time, energy, expertise are all aligned to expand and grow.  Size not only matters, it becomes the only thing that matters.  Pleonexia may be the swine flu of mainline Protestantism in the U.S.

“So what are some of the symptoms of the disease?  How can we diagnose pleonexia, and what can we do about it before it becomes terminal.  Let Doctor Dan offer some ‘early warning signs,’ and what can be done about them. . . .”

plimsoll - (Rhymes with SLIM-ball; n.) A person's level of stress; that is, how overwhelmed they are.

[From the line drawn on a ship to show how deep it should ride in the water when fully loaded. Any deeper, and the ship is in danger of being swamped and of sinking.]

e.g., Using "plimsoll" for level of stress is similar to using "temper" for intensity of anger. "Temper" compares a person's ability to control his frustration to the resilience of iron or steel. Someone who "shatters" at little provocation has a "bad temper." Like "temper," "plimsoll" compares a person's ability to handle stress to how low a fully laden ship should float. The plimsoll of someone close to "breaking" under stress is "low" or "sinking": in a word "bad."

For example:

plumetrog - plumetrog - (Rhymes with ROOM-eh-dog, but can be pronounced with a French accent like "plus-metro" if you want an air of philosophical ennui; n.) 1. The ineluctable truths of science in light of their astonishing eluctability. (adj.) 2. Of or pertaining to the malleability of scientifically or statistically derived "facts." [From_plume_"feather" +_trog_(q.v.) "troglodyte." --- from the fact that, when I was in school (back in the 60s), dinosaurs were torpid lizards with scaly skin; they most certainly did not have feathers. Similarly, Neanderthals were still our ancestors and looked like fuzzy gorillas who wore no clothes. These certainties have gone the way of the dodo recently, since many dinosaurs "plainly" had feathers, were probably warm blooded, and were not torpid at all. The troglodyte Neanderthals now have nothing to do with us, wore clothes made out of skins, and were no hairier than my brother-in-law, who looks nothing at all like a gorilla. I understand that the Milky Way is much bigger than we thought it was, that the "slaves" of Khufu were actually well-cared-for and willing workers, and so forth and so on and on.][P.S. Since I wrote this, Neanderthals, it has been established, intermarried with our Cro-Magnon progenitors, and therefore ARE our ancestors. Shortly thereafter, however, this notion was completely refuted by certain findings which have now themselves been called into question---so I have no idea whether the scientific community plans to lay a place for the Neanderthals at the next family reunion. Oh! And the feathered dinosaurs, which, last decade, were the ancestors of birds, aren't their ancestors anymore, since birds and feathered dinosaurs coexisted, apparently.]

e.g., You know, Pasteur's germ theory of disease was openly mocked by the medical community. A paradigmatic plumetrog.

plumptious - Scrumptious (very pleasing, especially to the senses; delectable; splendid) but plump. It's almost surprising to me that this doesn't already appear in dictionaries as a word. (It probably does, but I haven't run across it.) ~Fattractive. In some of the examples I found of its use, it plainly means simply plump -- or even fat.

e.g., The Purple Diva: "After the discussions of the offensiveness of number one, they backtracked and actually dug (aptly. . .) themselves a deeper hole by saying 'actually, you are 'plumptious' and not fat'!!! Whatever you call it, actually it means the same . . . FAT. Colour the word how you like (but not orange . . . orange fat equals oompa loompa!): voluptuous, curvy, plumptious, ample -- they all equal FAT!! So I remain offended but decide to take action.  
"Oh, and whilst we are on the subject . . . WHY OH WHY do people say 'you look well,' when you know damn well that what they really mean is, 'you look FAT,' or 'you look like you’ve put on weight.' I know perfectly well what they mean, and what they’re thinking . . . no, I’m not paranoid and YES I know my bum looks big in that, without having to ask." |  
It was hardly surprising to see that she had put on a bit of weight over the past 30 years. What was surprising, though, was how plumptious she was. | Plumptious as she was, she was surprisingly lissome. A contradiction if ever there was one. | "If at any point you think her descriptions of 'plumptious' cranberries, 'juicy, shapely' pears or 'lovely and firm' meringues may have a second meaning, down a shot. We reckon she’s talking about her nipples." | "Back in the nineteen-forties or fifties, two plumptious sisters (as I like to imagine them) posed for a photograph in their Sunday best." | "After years of trying to squeeze my plumptious derriere into skinny jeans and pencil skirts, the hourglass figure is back in fashion." | "Plumptious Lolita is doing all the local whores out of business by servicing every sad bloke in town -- for free." | "Their utterly charming, and incredibly knowledgeable staff bring huge platters of fish to each table (look away if you’re squeamish) and entice you with promises of grilled sea bass, plumptious snapper, huge turbot and fresh lobster." | "The plumptious lad had debunked to Serbia, taken singing lessons, and then asked five girls from the perfume despartment of Belgrade Selfridge's to back him up while performing the Serbs' debut ESC entry as an independent nation." | Her plumptious cheeks? Did you say her plumptious cheeks? What's that all about? | "I'm naturally plumptious, and a stress eater too — I've done a lot of it this past winter!" | "In reality, Lucinda and her two best friends, the plumptious Katherine and the rambunctious Amanda run a small sandwich business in London." | "Won't be long, now, until pheasant shooting begins and the hedgerow blackberries are plumptious and tempting." | "Oh, and did you notice that he is rather plumptious (fat is a swear word in this house!)? Too much stuffing can do that you know."  
From Wordnik:

  • "She has the kind of plumptious breasts and thighs beloved of cartoonist Robert Crumb."
    Evening Standard - Home

  • "Mind you, I saw a lissom backside in a sari here and there, and a few pairs of plumptious bouncers hanging out of low corsages, and thought to myself, there's a few here who'd repay care and attention - and they'd probably be glad of it, too, for a more sawn-off and runty collection than their menfolk I never did see."
    Flashman's Lady

  • "On the first floor are several plumptious bedrooms, and a little staircase leading to the second floor, where the children's rooms are, plus a small home gym."
    Top stories from Times Online

  • "Just work at it and you fortysomething pluses can retain a plumptious, fecund look well into middle age."

  • "He must be defeated by the tattifelariousness of the plumptious Prince Ken of Knotty Ash!"

"Til in the end Dadidges, sick of his fadidges, 
let this little lad have his way; 
And smug faced McCafferty, happy as dafferty,

But poor little ladidges, ever so sadidges, 
grew HUGE and despite shrill appeals; 
From plumptious McCafferty, ton and a halferty, 
they roll him to school now on wheels..."

plumptress - A term of endearment describing a promiscuous, curvy, and attractive woman, slightly heavier than she should be.

pmd - People of Mass Destruction. 23 May 2004 The New York Times.


The Search For P.M.D.'s - New York Times: Sometimes you don't know whether to laugh or cry. reported last week that the F.B.I. had alerted law enforcement offices around America to be on the lookout for possible suicide bombers. Police forces were told to keep an eye out for people wearing bulky overcoats in the heat of summer, people with electric wires sticking out of their clothing, or people smelling of chemicals. Personally, if I see someone trailing electric wires, I am definitely calling the cops.

Unfortunately, such bizarre warnings could be the first of many, because while we have not found any W.M.D. in Iraq, we have found there a disturbing number of P.M.D.'s ? people of mass destruction. Consider the car-bombing murder in Baghdad on Monday of Ezzedine Salim, the Shiite politician and president of the Iraqi Governing Council. According to news reports, Mr. Salim was in a five-car convoy of Nissan Patrols waiting in a line of cars to enter the Green Zone, the secure American complex in the heart of Baghdad. Suddenly, a Volkswagen Passat jumped out of the line of cars, raced toward Mr. Salim's vehicle and blew up next to it, incinerating everything in the area.
