    This Is What the Urban Dictionary Looks Like on Google Images

    Written by

    Austin Considine

    Urban Dictionary and Google Images, a killer combination. Above, the first Google Image result for "killer combination." 

    Earlier this year, British artists Ben West and Felix Heyes designed a pretty dope Google Images dictionary titled, simply, Google. The idea behind the 1,200-plus-page book was simple: Design some software to select and save the first Google Images result for every single word in the Oxford English Dictionary, then print it in a big, beautiful book.

    The results range from the banal to the insightful, the anodyne to the outrageous. Because, as we all know, Google Images can be extremely helpful (especially for bloggers who need to steal other people’s work to illustrate their stories), but not always. Sometimes the results are as worthless as online image copyright.

    But you know what’s way more fun than the stuffy ol’ OED? The Urban Dictionary. Motherboard thought it might be fun to put together a micro-version of West’s book by selecting the first Google Images result for one Urban Dictionary term per letter of the alphabet.* Along with that image, we’ve included Urban Dictionary’s top definition—a.k.a., the one that got the most votes. Sometimes there was complete disunity between text and image (e.g. “gasoc”); but sometimes that disunity was funny (see “kibbles and bits”). I would like to think that, in some ways, it presents an even more accurate snapshot of today’s ever enweirdening culture than West and Heyes' book does.

    And in that spirit, I just made up the word enweirdening (verb infinitive: “to enweirden,” i.e., to make weirder). Let’s see if it sticks.

    Chimpeachment

    Frankenword combining “chimp” (in reference to George W. Bush, aka Chimpy McFlightsuit) and “impeachment.”

    If a chimpeachment were to occur, GWB would be charged “with improper conduct in office before a proper tribunal,” and possibly thrown out of office.

    50% of Americans Support Chimpeachment

    Nothing changes unless we remove the chimp. Chimpeachment is the only answer to saving this nation from the thugs of the KKKarl Rove administration.

    Dongyanatics

    The unique and popular term for the biggest group of supporters of the Philippines' phenomenal loveteam on and offscreen - DONGYAN Dingdong Dantes and Marian Gracia-Dantes (Rivera). Originated at PinoyExchange during the couple's first tv soap opera, Marimar, and still going strong despite the couple having separate tv projects.

    Among Dingdong Dantes' favorite possessions is a DVD compilation of videos of him & reel/real-life partner Marian Rivera made by their dedicated group of supporters, the Dongyanatics.

    Erzmeister

    Image via YouTube

    An 'Erzmeister' is a master (hence Meister) at transferring score or rating in games, usually because it is the only way the Erzmeister in question can achieve anything in that game.

    It also has to be remarked that the Erzmeister can and will deny his illegal and sad actions in public, but is likely to confess it to a few individuals, in private.

    Because of his / her / its actions, an Erzmeister is often hated by legit players.

    - Wow that guy has a rating of over 9000!

    - Dude, he's an Erzmeister

    - Oh, sad!

    Faceroll

    Image via Photobucket

    Originating (presumably) on the World of Warcraft forums, this is an essentially derogatory concept some people employ that means that all that a certain class must do in order to achieve success in the game is to bind every key on their keyboard to one ability that is perceived to be overpowered, and then continue to roll their face across the keyboard. The notion is that this one ability is so amazingly overpowered in relation to those of other classes, all one has to do is absently spam it as much as possible (and they might as well do it with their face, because there isn't any other use for the big stupid thing on top of their shoulders).

    Priest: waah waah I'm a little bitch

    Warrior: Oh stfu -

    1) bind every key on your keyboard to Flash Heal

    2) faceroll

    Horrorcane

    Image via Good Gamery

    1.

    I was going to take the train uptown to see my girl, but the subway tunnel is underwater because of that damn horrorcane.

    Hurricane just seems so inadequate; it's more like a "horrorcane".

    Hurry up! We gotta evacuate the city; there's a horrorcane up our asses.

    And you thought Katrina was bad? Sandy is an even bigger bitch; talk about a horrorcane.

    Zombie

    Image by Francois Guillot/AFP/Getty Images, via NPR

    The Walking Dead. Scientific name Homo Coprophagus Somnambulus.

    A deceased human being who has partially returned to life due to undeterminable causes. The brain retains base facilities, namely gross motor function. In its near-mindless state, it grasps no remains of emotion, personality, or sensation of pain. In rare cases, some of the reanimated have reflexively preformed routine activities from their past lives.

    The rotting bodies of the undead operate on a fraction of the level at which our bodies normally function. Circulatory, respiratory, and digestive systems are unaffected by reanimation. Labored breathing, choking, and moaning are reflexive but no oxygen is carried through the blood. The nervous system functions primarily within the brain and brain stem. Sensory reception is minimal at best and seemingly unecessary in the pursuit of prey. The undead are incapable of fatigue and will persist at any cost. They will even crawl when their legs have been removed. Even if the head is removed from the body, it will continue to live. The only way to stop the reanimated is to destroy the brain. To prevent reanimation in the recently departed, decapitate the corpse and burn the body.

    The only observable action a zombie takes part in is killing living creatures, especially humans, and eating them. Many theories and speculations surround this disturbing behavior. One theory is based on the thought that reanimation is the result of a contagious infection or virus, and that the primal drive to feed will spread the disease to other host bodies. Research has shown that although the majority of zombie attacks result in fatal wounds, all corpses return to life soon after passing, regardless of cause of death. Another theory is that zombies eat the brains of the living to refuel the "un-life" giving chemical serotonin. Because digestive and circulatory systems are incapable of bringing these elements to the brain, this just cannot be true. The final speculation seems the most obvious, that the dead feed for sustenance to satiate their unnatural metabolism. But because the gut has no function in the undead, this is also false. One documented encounter claims that a zombie was unable to move due to the sheer mass of undigested flesh resting in its distended gut. The creature continued to eat even after it's gut had burst open. Studies regarding the nature of feeding have proven that zombies will try to eat when their stomachs and even jaws have been removed. One explanation offers that the walking dead are the incarnation of death itself, a mockery of life that uses the vessels of the living to carry out their dark intentions, they are the opposite of life and are driven to simply undo it.

    “When there's no more room in hell, the dead shall walk the earth.”
