Underground – (n.) to court without the general AguPublic knowing about it. Usually, members are shocked to learn that the couple are already going steady. Palpak in underground mu boy, keng tutuki kasi pasakmal mu ne agad.

Foul – (n.) an incident where one person offends another, usually the offender does this in a subtle way, but nonetheless hurts the offendee. Usually followed by a free throw. A foul which has a stronger implication may merit a technical foul. D***kins! Prrrt! Foul! 2 free throws awarded.

One Hour – (v.) usually involves the initiator and the invited party to proceed to a convenient computer shop. The initiator and the invited party then rent computers to run programs, most notably CounterStrike, Warcraft, NBA Live, and more recently, Ragnarok (Editor: Dyosme, puro laos na tong mga games na to these days, haha! May mga ganito pa bas a mga computer shops?). Contrary to the lexical meaning of the phrase, one hour usually lasts for a minimum of three hours to overnight sessions. Nanu boys, one hour ta na Condo?
Traffic – (v.) much like One Hour, difference being, the time frame. One Hour can strike anytime, but Traffic much usually occurs en route home. Me traffic kami pauli boy.

Mag-CR – (v.) usually succeeds Review. It is the release of bodily fluids through physical stimulation. Batibot (syn). Hokei, mekapag Review na ku, mag CR na ku pa.
Headshot – (adv.) a comment or a remark which let slip the victim’s deepest and darkest secrets. Boy, me-headshot ku keng comment mu.
Golf – (v.) The intake of alcohol through the digestive tract. Usually, sessions last through morning with most of the involved passing out.
