What does that person mean?

Are you up for a little fun? Go to www.urbandictionary.com and find the meanings to modern day slang. I know I occasionally run into conversation with people that I do not understand a word they say. This urban dictionary will clear up this “new” language. It is really funny as well!

Here are a few examples:
BlackBerry Prayer: The supplicating position one assumes when grasping the popular six-ounce wireless combination e-mailer/phone known as the BlackBerry between your palms and thumb-tapping messages on its QWERTY keyboard.
Land it in the Hudson: An expression used to encourage yourself or someone else when it appears an endeavor is headed for a disastrous outcome (due mostly to external conditions). Based on when Sully averted tragedy by successfully landing US Airways Flight 1549 in the Hudson River. See also, “Land it like Sully.”
The dictionary also uses the words or phrases in a sentence. The company is on the brink of failure, so let’s Land it in the Hudson.
