lamecalling - The sort of namecalling seen on Internet discussion boards. Namecalling so lame it’s no fun at all. The kind where the response is always along the lines, “Alright already. Stop with the ad hominem attacks.” The response is almost invariably made by someone anxious to show the extent of her Latin vocabulary — someone who concurrently shows her poor grasp of English by writing “alright” rather than “all right.”

e.g., So, who do you think’s the worst lamecaller on Punch/CounterPunch these days?

land-o-goshen - My mother used this term as an exclamation. Of Biblical origin. The land the Israelites were given following their 40-year wander in the desert. 1. The best of Pharoah's land. 2. A place of refuge where Pharoah's army was not allowed to enter. 3. A land that was blessed by God. 4. A land protected by God. 5. A place of peace. 5. The term has two, seemingly opposite meanings, and that's why I want to put it in here! The people I've heard use it (like my mother) do so in a slightly negative manner, pertaining to yet another hard task that has popped up but that needs doing. I don't know how this got transliterated to an expression denoting NOT a peaceful place, it may have originated in the South, where my mother grew up. Perhaps it refers to wishing one was in the "Land of Goshen" and didn't have to do this task, thereby attaining Peace. My best guess!

e.g., Land-o-Goshen, I've got a mountain of laundry to do! | Land-o-Goshen, how DID your dress get so dirty?!

landing gear - (n.) A drumstick; that is, the leg of a bird prepared as part of a meal. [From a story my father told me long ago about standing in the chow line during his time in Korea.
