The "Stuck On Stupid" Dictionary #27

Surprisingly, we have managed to secure another entry for this lexicographic effort in a timely manner. While this does not assure that future efforts for this tome will be similarly affected, it might mean that the double espressos that we have been feeding the staff may in fact be having some effect. 

Now for those of you who have somehow managed to miss previous postings in this area (shame on you, now go back and read all of the postings under the title of dictionary), the SOS dictionary is a reference guide to terms which nominally mean something to the rest of the English speaking world, but appear to mean something entirely different to those us understand the vernacular of Toledo and Northwest Ohio. 

1. The term used for the plumbing fixture down which water flows, usually into a sewer. 
2. The effect that the proposed water and sewer rate increase requests of over 4o% each from the Toledo Department of Public Utilities will have on the pocketbooks of the city's residents.
