citrimatic
Relating to the automatic dispensing of orange juice.

This is a marketing term, originated by the Florida Orange Growers' Fraternal Association. The term was eventually applied to restaurant dispensers of many citrus juices. It was widely used during the Great Beverage Wars of the mid-1980s.

Efforts to permanently embed the term in North American consumers' minds foundered, however, when the designers of the advertising campaign ran into difficulties with suitable translations into French and Spanish. The best French and Spanish names were found to conflict with the legally-registered names of a Quebecois-Floridian road-hockey club, and a Californian Spanish-language hiphop band, respectively.

'Citrimatic' has now been laregly supplanted by 'juicytronic' in the trade press.

Slunt
Dialect taboo slang. A type of woman found loitering near the entrances of malls.

Commonly used by mall staff, this word is a regionalism limited to the Great Lakes area of North America. It derives from an older term clunt, meaning empty-headed fashion slave, but adds connotations of evasiveness and dishonesty.

Caution: This term is offensive and very insulting. Non-native English speakers in particular should use it with extreme care.
