Great Danish

[greyt dey-nish]
Great Dane + Danish pastry

1. A pastry so large that it appears correctly proportioned to a Great Dane dog rather than a human being.

Ex. I thought this class would teach me how to finally make pastry large enough to photograph next to my beloved Great Dane, Jorgen Borgensson III. Unfortunately, it turns out the people at ICE had run out of synonyms for "delicious" and had settled on "great" Danish pastry...again.

Hot Flasher

[hot flash-er]
Hot flash + Flasher

1. A person who experiences sudden rises in body temperature and attempts to compensate by quickly removing clothing in an unintentionally revealing way.

Ex. Jenny felt bad that her mom was plagued by the everpresent physical side effects of menopause but she always cringed when her friends sang, "Here Comes the Hot Flasher" during carpool. It took just one instance of flinging a cardigan out the window of a moving car, revealing just a bra, to inspire the song.

Gangrene + Greenery

1. Holiday decorations, living or fake, that have been left up too long and are beginning to disintegrate or decompose before your eyes.

Ex. Holly felt bad that her own laziness of leaving the curling, brown garland up for months after Christmas was probably marring her daughter's vision of the holiday for life but she figured she was also teaching her about wastefulness or...recycling or...something.
