    Bozone (n.): The substance surrounding stupid people that stops bright ideas from penetrating. The bozone layer, unfortunately, shows little sign of breaking down in the near future.

    Lagom[a.] - The most Swedish word in existence. Has no direct translation to any other language, except maybe a few obscure ones. Its meaning can be most accurately described as "just enough", "the correct amount", "not too little and not too much" etc.
    It's lagom funny for foreigners trying to learn Swedish. :)

    I believe the correct spelling of that is jawntu. It usually follows jeet, an interrogatory for did you eat?.

    What ever became of Jeff, anyway?

    I should point out that Hellman's is known as Best Foods west of the Rockies. "Bring out the Best Foods, and bring out the best."

    You'd have to ask them. The jars of Best Foods mayo say "known as Hellman's east of the Rockies" on them, that's how I know.
