i can see your bum! - Used as a greeting when you can see your friend a bit ahead of you. You can't actually see her bum--you are just being playful and tricky. The only appropriate responses are "No, you can't," or "I thought it felt pleasantly breezy."

e.g., Kelly spotted Xav up ahead. "I can see your bum, Xav!" she yelled enthusiastically. "No you can't," Xav replied as she turned around, and both went off happily to enjoy the afternoon.

i demand - "I demand" is a game wherein the passengers in a car are all blindfolded. The driver, for obvious safety reasons, is exempt from this requirement. The passengers take it in turn to issue one of three instructions to the driver, who must comply to the best of his ability. The three instructions are "I demand you turn left," "I demand you turn right," and "I demand you go straight ahead." After the expiry of a pre-determined period of time, announced by the driver as the only one who can see his watch, the passengers have to guess precisely where they are before removing their blindfolds. The winner is the one who guesses the closest.

e.g., "I am bored driving aimlessly," said Colin. "I demand we play 'I demand'." "I am low on petrol" said Mick; "I demand we don't."

i swan - Also "I swannee." I swear. The Word Detective tells us: "But, logical as it may seem, the Swannee River is not the source of "I swannee." For that we must travel to the north of England, where when folks really wanted other folks to believe something they were saying, they would preface it with "I shall warrant ye," meaning "I swear to you that this is true." Of course, accents in the north of England being thicker than wool soaked in molasses, what they actually said was closer to "I's wan ye," which sounds a great deal like "I swannee." It was in this form that the phrase was imported into the U.S. in the mid-19th century, although an even briefer form, "I swan," is perhaps more popular in this country. Today "I swannee" and "I swan" are most often used as interjections or expressions of surprise, as in "Ruth really ran off with that cute UPS guy? Well, I swan!"

e.g., "When I called and asked to speak to Michelle, I was told she didn't work there any more. I'll bet she ran off with that Fedex boyfriend of hers." "Well, I swan. I thought she loved every minute of her job. Do you suppose that changed when she was promoted to Assistant Director." "Maybe. Or it may have been a way to promote her to a job that could be eliminated. She might have been getting too expensive in her old job."

iatollah - Ayotallah: a high-ranking Shiite religious leader who is regarded as an authority on religious law and its interpretation and who has political power as well. From Wikipedia: Romanization of Arabic Different approaches and methods for the romanization of Arabic exist. They vary in the way that they address the inherent problems of rendering written and spoken Arabic in the Latin script. Examples of such problems are the symbols for Arabic phonemes that do not exist in English or other European languages; the means of representing the Arabic definite article, which is always spelled the same way in written Arabic but has numerous pronunciations in the spoken language depending on context; and the representation of short vowels (usually i u or e o , accounting for variations such as Muslim/Moslem or Mohammed/Muhammad/Mohamed ). Posted for RM by MS; however, the spelling can hardly be called wrong. Transliteration from Arabic to English isn't arbitrary, of course, but it's not and can't be perfect either. The example uses the grocer's apostrophe.

e.g., I don't think they mean it personally either. But the bastard iatollah's and the religious leadership a**wholes over there … indoctrinates them to say it. Citizens of a totalitarian regime where information is controlled have a completely whacky outlook on the rest of the world. Look at North Korea. Same thing. The roving blackouts and abject poverty is blamed on us by their government [and the populace] then thinks we are the cause of all their problems. So we are the Imperialist American dogs. Place the blame on anyone OTHER than your government so your people don't revolt; this had been done in governments since the dawn of civilization.
