    Ebonics: One of the four horsemen of the apocalypse. We should have known then that the end was quite seriously nigh.

    Poseidon: Basis of one of the most ubiquitous Irwin Allen disaster movies of the 70s, which gave birth to a ghastly song called The Morning After which one had to dig a bunker to avoid hearing. Oh, and god of the sea, brother of Zeus and Hades and all that.

    Calories: A horned family of quadrupedal enemies in Xenoblade Chronicles, once only found on Valak Mountain but have since been located in small bands in the Northern California Sierra foothills at elevations exceeding 3500 feet (1066.8 metres). Most Ories resemble bulls or yaks, although two species sport antlers instead of horns, which makes them appear more like bulky deer or elk.

    Equal: A concept so fundamental to Western societies children are fed it with their mother's milk. The premise that all humans are born equal is the foundation of our political rights. Unfortunately, the premise is horse dung. As the years have revealed to me, although it is literal heresy to state out loud in the West, the notion that all humans are innately equal, as a belief, is right up there with spontaneous generation and bloodletting as a cure all.

    Roaming: Something for which cellular providers charge you an obscene, nay criminal amount of money, as I recently found out during a trip to Europe. The villains should be drawn and quartered for it, especially since improved technology has negated the original basis of the claim that it costs the cellular providers lots of money to provide you out of network service. Unfortunately, said providers send lobbyists to Capitol Hill with bags of money for cooperative congressmen. The rat b*stards!
