Official UnderGuide Entry

The following definitions were collected by a researcher called RingoZingo who has this to say about himself:

I am not an authentic "ringozingo".... I am a world traveling globe-trotter and have been on many adventures & misadventures in my terrestrial excursions.... I am proud to now be an official researcher for the actual Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy... Although I have been acting like one for years.

I used to carry an electronic pocket databank in my satchel a la Ford Prefect and go about collecting miscellaneous street jargon, bits of argot, and colloquial vernacularisms that I overheard,(I encourage my fellow researchers to behave in this manner as that is the proverbial point here and it is oodles of fun moreover) some of these gems have survived the test of time. I ever so hope people will find them to be a gas and begin to incorporate them into their own vocabularies, thus ushering them into the propriety of mainstream decorum.
