Developing a Brocabulary: Chilloquialisms

Apologies for the shorter blogs the last few weeks, but myself and my conspirators have been busy getting ready for the first big comics show of the year, New York Comic Con, with KP returning to town for the event and yours truly being involved in a big announcement at Marvel's War of Kings panel on Friday (so check it out!).

I've been working on some longer stuff, like an ode to Wally West and new entries in Earth's Mightiest Sketch Blog as well as my Indy Odyssey, but I don't want to give release dates and then be forced to re-solicit (comic book humor!).

So while we wait, let's de-stress with some Chilloquialisms, aka Colloquialisms specific to the art of chilling, from Brocabulary: The New Man-i-festo of Dude Talk...

carbecue - 1. "Baking" a car by lighting up a joint. 2. Trashing your old car--or someone else's--by dousing it in gasoline and setting it on fire.

chilliards - Billiards, when played for the purposes of chilling with your bros.

chill-tempered - Naturally inclined to chilling. Sometimes you're so chill-natured that you become chillustrious, i.e. renowned for chilling like the Dude in The Big Lebowski.

cigarsenal - Your arsenal of cigars: "I always keep a Cuban in my cigarsenal." Note that this can also include anything you keep in a cigar box, including weed, etc.

teebauchery - Hijinks that occur on the golf links, or around a Golden Tee machine.

Enjoy, ladies and gents, and if you're attending NYCC, I hope to see you for some chilliards and/or teebauchery.
