of slang I was sent, unless you *really* had to know the college to appreciate
t. It's in alphabetical order by word, and not split into any sort of
categories. There is an explative here and there, and various sex related
There are almost no listings of part of speech. I tried to keep the definitions
as much the contributor's words as possible, but some editing had to be done.
Enjoy!
