Came up with this just now in an email conversation... What do you call it when you are invited to several things across town but can't make all of them 'cos you're in a wheelchair? You're "cripple-booked".
Just got this email about a book that's been on my wishlist for over a year, and that was ordered over a month ago...

The 10km Run London event this weekend, which has been essentially co-opted by Nike, is bound to see a lot of protests owing to their ongoing use of sweatshop labour and well-documented disregard for employee health. Calls for action are popping up for meetings at the finish line.
SweatLondon is taking a different tack - rebelling against the "bunch of lefty morons" and organising a "counter protest", to "support Nike in their hour of need"...
It recognizes a bunch of different words and phrases; I've collected a few like "beer", "hello", "kiss", and more below...
* beer, pint, ale (judging by the response to ale, this is clearly an American site...)
* bra, tits, boobs, rack, feel good
* give me head, beer back at my place (two favorites of mine) = gets her to fill glass from end of bar, no idea why
* love; more like "make love". I guess they never figured a guy might want just love ;-)
* coyote ugly; dance skit on the bar à la movie
* banana; guess...
* bend over
* sing, rap
* spread your legs
* kung fu
* show me; friend appears with a couple of cans?
* (give me your) number
* kick, nuts
* kiss; brings on a friend...
* strip; this is pretty funny
* fight; fantastic!
* change, be filthy (or "be anything")
* show your bra = top off!
* ass, beer.com, show me your foot (er... beats me too)
Plus a bunch of others that get a barely disapproving finger-wagging.
Any more? Sling 'em in the comments!

A while ago on a mapping site I saw a link to Top 10 Most Dangerous Intersections (in the US).
Months later I came across this priceless newsclip: Dangerous intersection: 119th St W and 53rd St N in Maize, KS. You can't make this stuff up! Why, lookee here, it's a story about putting extra warning lights on that intersection's stop sign. You've gotta love the interweb!
