I feel it's about time someone wrote a glossary of Asylum specific terms, don't you think? So, without further ado, I give you

Asylum Glossary v1.1.6

Most of the following original words and expressions were coined by distressed users in times of crisis - brick looming - so typos which gave us this colorful little collection are quite understandable. The origin of these words is lost in the mists of time, but we'd nevertheless like to thank their creators for their unintentional inventivnality and originess. We also like to think that all of them got out of their respective shtooks and lived happily ever after.

Also, our special thanks and eternal gratitude goes to Alcoholic Anonymous 1973, who went to great lengths to collect and preserve these linguistic pearls for posterity.

A word of caution: Don't drink tea and read Asylum Glossary, it might render you impotent!1!
