1. Turncloak - Officer Fred is good too.

2. Gene Kelly - due to the goofy "dance" performed with the legs trying to clip in.

3. Fresh fish/new fish/Trout -- borrowed from prison terminology for inexperienced person. I won't take it any further ;).


At least where I've lived at, the law often makes exceptions for police officers while on duty for some activities which would otherwise be illegal, e.g., riding bikes on sidewalks. In some situations, it is necessary that the bike officers actually be in the crowd. That said, I can see it is still a pet peeve for many of us who don't get special privileges.


1. Spwners - a combination of spawn (as in swimming upstream) and pwned.

2. Cliptastrophy

3. Velookers

I'll probably repost these new words on my new word blog, IP Fictionarium, as well.
