wafer wars - A term used to refer to the "debate" as to whether or not Catholics who take issue with fundamental tenets of Catholicism (especially unwavering opposition to abortion) should partake of communion. Some Catholics object to the term. See communion police.

e.g., "[Wafer wars] is an offensive term to anyone who believes that a consecrated communion host is the Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity of Jesus Christ our Lord." | Democrats seem determined to keep putting up pro-abortion Catholics for the highest political offices in the land. Every time they do that, they restart the wafer wars. | One thing I've come to count on every quadrennial election year is a resurrection of the wafer wars.

wait-a-minute moment - (n.) 1. The sudden realization that something you hadn't really noticed before is the answer to some question you never thought to ask; 2. The brief lull, still and silent, before the cry of "Eureka!" 3. The post-event statement that you suddenly realize you haven't really bettered anything after all. (cf. "rellama.") [From the fact that, as someone put it, great moments of discovery are never heralded by someone yelling "eureka!"; they are normally preceded by quiet, brow-furrowing murmurs of 'that's funny,' 'okay, what just happened?,' and, of course, 'wait a minute...']

e.g., "So, I've got this hidden door---see it there on the plans?---and I've managed to disguise the hinges, but I can't seem to figure out how to disguise the door knob." "Does the door have a key?" "Yes, a key and a keyhole. Both are cleverly concealed." "Well, then, why do you need a doorknob?" "Why do I need a doorknob?! ... I have to have a way to---... wait: Do I really even need a doorknob?" "Well, a perfect wait-a-minute moment." "What?" "Nothing. You were saying?"
