o'krapp handle - (n.) handholds or straps insightfully placed in vehicles so as to allow passengers to avoid falling down, sliding into somebody, knocking everybody over, or otherwise suffering the effects of inertia when the vehicle in which they are traveling turns sharply or continuously---usually found on the passenger side of cars and in commuter rail cars. [From "Oh, crap!" which is what many people say when they realize they're about to tip, slide, fall, vel cet., and reach for something to hold onto. The other day, someone made a joke about these marvelously ergonomic accoutrements, ascribing their invention to a wise car manufacturer whom he named Mr. O'Krapp.]

e.g., "I would have ended up squashed between the front seats had there been no o'krapp handles." | There's a roundabout just up the road from our house, and everyone takes it at about 40 mph. The o'krapp handles get a lot of use.

o-bomb-a-deer - It's a president who it's hard to imagine in the role of commander-in-chief -- at the head of the military, maneuvering troops, and ordering invasions and military strikes.

o-side - (n.) the west side of the moon (to the left as you look up at it): the last part to vanish into the dark before a new moon, waning from full to crescent before finally disappearing entirely. You begin to see the o-side after the first half moon following new (about 10 days into the lunar cycle), but it isn't fully lit until the full moon (about day 15).

While you're at it, ask Michelle Obama the same question -- ask her just exactly when it was that she began to take pride in America.

obama-bin-biden - (noun, I guess) How my brain started reading the 2008 campaign posters (and bumper stickers and pins and leaflets and tv ads and so forth) for President Obama and Vice-President Biden. At the time, questions as to whether Osama bin Laden was still skulking about somewhere were still rather common (indeed, the failure to find him was used to some extent as a point against President Bush, and, by extension against Senator McCain).

e.g., So I'm walking down the road when I see a window sticker that says "OBAMA/BIDEN on it. But after I get past it, I suddenly realize that I had read it as "Obama bin Biden" and was thinking about the terrorist rather than the candidate...tres bizarre, no?
