    What are the most humorous uses of any cricket jargon terms so far?

    What are your picks of the most (humorous only) uses so far, of any cricket jargon terms made by anyone (be it by a player, who ever was commentating a cricket match you saw, or someone who was writing about a match you saw) ?
