    Pakistan's Slip Cordon, noun

    Someone who squanders opportunities that others would love to have, but it doesn't matter since another one will come along soon***

    He did a Pakistan's Slip Cordon by oversleeping and missing his HR interview at Google, but Facebook saw his project on GitHub and made him a better offer anyway.

    viriya's cricrate, noun

    A labor of love that may not attract significant appreciation or monetary reward.

    My Ph.D. thesis has become a bit of a viriya's cricrate at this point, as I could easily chuck it and get paid handsomely for doing **** all at some MNC, but I'm gonna do whatever it takes to get this over the line.

    Bevan at 6, noun

    Something that invariably gets you out of a tight spot when you need it the most

    I thought I was totally screwed when I completely lost my way driving in the desert, but my phone GPS fortunately did a Bevan at 6 and got me to a nearby gas station.

    Vettori verb

    to make an admirable contribution to an embarrassing performance in the interests of making said performance marginally less embarrassing.

    or

    Vettori noun

    Someone who is astoundingly effective while appearing to do very little.

    Following on from certain discussions in the match thread

    claim Anderson's past it
    , verb

    To make a statement which is quickly demonstrated to be false

    My brother's trying to avoid his ex at the moment, so when she knocked on our door the other day, I told her he was out. Turned out I'd claimed Anderson's past it, as he came out of the living room right behind me at that very moment.

    ashwin, verb

    To land yourself in hot water by saying something stupid or careless, then make things worse by attempting to talk your way out of it

    "First Chris got himself in trouble with the management for sending emails making lewd comments to the CEO's secretary, but he really ashwinned when he tried to justify his actions by claiming she'd slept with nearly everyone in the office anyway."

    Pollock's rating, noun

    A supposedly critical assessment of something which is overly generous, often due to not actually being grounded in reality.

    'My annual performance review went really well, but only because I was given credit for dealing with clients I've actually never had anything to do with. Not complaining, since it meant I got a good pay rise, but it was something of a Pollock's rating.

    Minus points for not using the gerund form and taking advantage of ihis name ending in "ing".

    Philander verb

    Eating, and not being able to stop eating, and then eating more. Then eating in excess on top of that.

    'Bruh it was wack, had four Halal snack packs, two big macs and a deep fried pizza yesterday. I just couldn't stop myself Philandering like a filthy disgusting pig even though I had a diet coke to even it out, think I'll call a sickie today."
