Historical Dictionary of American Slang

They've decided on "Jump the couch" as this year's #1 new slang. This, of course, referring to crazy Tom on the Oprah couch and meaning "frenetic or bizarre behavior."
Runners-up:
"floodweiser" the bottles water supplied by Budweiser for Katrina relief.
"whale tail" the thong peaking out of low rise jeans.
"flee-ance" runaway bride
"drink the koolaid" blindly accept a philosophy etc
"dirka dirka" from Team America
