Appending the Snausage

Have you ever heard a phrase that you didn't understand? It's annoying when people use the latest hip phrase, or meme, in conversation and expect everyone to know what it means. I used to see this all of the time back at Sun. Usually someone takes a three letter acronym (TLA) and turns it into a verb. "Let's MRP that later." (MRP = Medium Range Planning).

Lately I heard Tim Bray is the term refactor the ape. Tim's a smart guy, but I have no idea what that means.

Today I want to make up my own new phrase.

"Appending the Snausage"

It means, creating your own useless phrase that no one understands.

Use it today! Confuse a friend!

I'd use it, but I'm trying to wrap my head around Bending the Bacon.
