Volume 3.

Yet more stuff that should be in the dictionary but isn’t.

[See Volumes 1 and 2 in the Archives.]

short bus (adj) - the sense of “special education.” From the type of vehicle used to transport special-ed students.
“Jerry’s a real short bus kind of guy.”
“Yeah, I know Ann Coulter. Used to ride the short bus to school, if you know what I mean.”
Thanks to pesky’apostrophe for this lovely turn of phrase.

stupid loaf (n) - Item that, if eaten, reduces one’s intelligence.
“Chuck’s been chewin’ on the old stupid loaf, I see.”
