Applejacked: Having your Apple iPod stolen. "Dude, on the train last night I totally got Applejacked!"
bacon bit: A rent-a-cop; not good/important enough to be referred to as a "pig" or "bacon." "I thought we'd be in trouble when the 5-0 started rollin' up, but then I realized it was just the bacon bits--mall security."
cruiser spoon: To park two police cruisers with the drivers' sides adjacent so that the officers can converse through the open windows. "Better slow down, the po-po are cruiser spooning in the parking lot ahead."
Founded in 1999 by college student Aaron Peckham as a parody of the dictionary, UrbanDictionary.com features definitions written by people from all over the world. Since then, Urban Dictionary has been cited in court, in graduation speeches, and by countless media outlets, including CNN and Time magazine. Aaron listens for the newest words and phrases in the San Francisco Bay area.
