j paul getty bird sanctuary - At his death, J Paul Getty, the richest American of his generation, funded a number of institutions, including the world famous Getty Art Museum.    Not as well known, is the vast and eclectic J Paul Getty Bird Sanctuary, established for the protection and preservation of endangered bird species, other wildlife, rare plants and threatened minorities.    Among his many duties, the Secretary of the Bird Sanctuary must meet annually, for a formal accounting, with the board of directors.   

e.g., Every January, the Secretary of the J Paul Gerry Bird Sanctuary is required to make a formal report to the board of directors. Last year was an especially busy one, and the Secretary was careful to list every event of consequence.    For example, a caustic substance had spilled and ruined the concrete floor in the Research lab located on the seventh floor of the Sanctuary tower. The solution was to deeply etch the flooring and apply a smooth, thick layer of a bonding material.    The animal activist group of Franciscan monks, headquartered on the grounds, reported that a band of wild animals they brought in from Africa in the early 1980s, had grown so well that they were taken off the endangered list.    The agricultural research team was successful in creating a a new hardy and bug resistant variety of green leaf tea bush called, Libra, after the astrological period in which it was developed.    The Sanctuary's Committee For The Welfare of Minorities finally decided to hire a professional director to head up an association formed to protect the habitat and rights of native pygmy tribes.    During the year, the Bird Sanctuary was forced to file a lawsuit against an overly aggressive competitor, in order to protect its patent on the frozen confection the Sanctuary makes and sells from rare, specially grown, organic wild grapes.    Based upon the findings of the scientists at Sanctuary's Weather Center, the Secretary would have to warn the directors of the consequences of global warming.    Here is an extract of his notes covering the events of the year:    1. Floor scored on 7  2. Years ago, our Fathers brought forth on this continent, a Gnu nation  3. Conceived a Libra tea  4. Dedicated a pro position for Small Men Are Created Equal (SMACE)  5. We are engaged in a grapesical war  6. Testing weather -- can this nation, or any other nation so conceived, long endure?    The list went on, but the activities will never be remembered as much as the Secretary, Abe Blinkin's, short, but moving, annual status report. It will be known, and loved forever, as the Getty's Bird Address.

j. labrador quincy - (n.) A generic high-class-sounding name used to describe someone "everyone should know"---generally actors, singers, sports figures, the wealthy, and other VIPs. [I'm not certain why they are IPs, let alone VIPs, nor has anybody ever explained to my satisfaction why "everyone should know" such people, especially since it is not THEM we ought to know, but society's perception of them... Odd, really, but there it is.]

e.g., If J. Labrador Quincy needs picture ID, something is definitely lacking in the staff---they need to start living in the same world with the rest of the sycophantic world.

jabber walker - This word describes a person who is the human answer to the perpetual motion machine -- noted for continual activity, often aimless and full of nonsense but activated by the theory that you've got to be doing something at all times whether you know the purpose or not. Typically the jabber walker has one part that leads the way in activity, namely, the mouth, out of which proceeds a continuing stream of inanities and non sequiturs. The person has an underlying fear of shutting up and starting to think. After all, the head might implode when self-awareness sets in, as though the constant blather shores up the vacuum chamber that is the skull.

e.g., Uh oh, Hortense, heads up. The Jabber Walker cometh. She still doesn't realize that the rooms that she enters soon become as empty as her head. Let's suddenly remember an appointment somewhere else. Quick now before she corners us.

jabitzer™ - A pool (pocket billiards) term. The foul committed when the cue ball is struck twice. Specifically, when that first little touch is followed by a reflexive jab at the cue ball. You jab it; you "jabit." This is not a portmanteau word even though it carries two meanings. The stroke is a "jabitzer"; the cueist is also a "jabitzer." This invented word won a $25 prize for best new word of the week -- partly because its creator wrote, "I think it's a transitive verb." Didn't look like a verb to me. Also "jabiter" and "jabater." The verb can be backformed easily from the noun: to jabitz. "Jabitz," as determined by context, can be either a transitive verb or an intransitive verb. As an intransitive verb, the word means to foul by striking the cue ball twice or to hit or strike twice. The transitive verb requires an object, frequently "the cue ball." Additional content has been invisibled. (ED. Just noticed that this word (and several more) have been added to the UrbanDictionary. A shorter description and example were used, because much of the text here had been "invisibled" by using >!-- [text] --<. with the "<" and ">" reversed, of course. When UrbanDictionary: The Book comes out in a couple of weeks, it will be interesting to see how many words, descriptions, and definitions came from the PseudoDictionary. The Wayback Machine comes in handy for determining which came first in cases such as this. (The Wayback Machine has even been and accepted for evidentiary purposes in a United States court -- a civil suit. The case may have been appealed.) The version of this entry that is at Urbandictionary is the same as the one that was here as of January 24, 2002. A slightly different version is in The Slang Dictionary, which takes its content from this site. That appears to be the July 21, 2001, definition of the word -- probably my first entry to PseudoDictionary, about the time I became an editor. Other sites have reproduced the content of the PseudoDictionary, but seem to have no commercial intent. Such instances of copyright violation might be blown off as flattery -- but don't count on it. (October 20, 2005))

e.g., That was a jabitzer, DeWayne. Ball in hand. (foul) | You fouled because of your jabitzer -- you hit the cue ball twice. ("your jabitzer" = "your stroke") | That was a double hit, jabitzer. ("jabitzer" = shooter) | Be careful with any warmup strokes, DeWayne; otherwise, you may jabitz. You're less likely to foul by jabitzing if you make your bridge a little further back. | A batsman occasionally jabitzes in baseball. It doesn't happen that often, but it happens. Happens rarely in golf, too. Don't think I've ever seen a pro golfer do it, but I have done it myself. | Chris O didn't have to jabitz Chris T. Chris T stayed on the floor after the first blow, saying something like, "I'm not fighting you. You've got a black belt in karate."
