From the online urban dictionary:


The antigravity properties of the Victoria’s Secret banquette bra are no mystery to anyone who’s ever worn one. They’ve got more rigging in them than a fleet of sailboats or Peter Pan the musical. And they can add 2 cups sizes up front and center.

(Could bra padding be the genesis of the term fronting?)

Other fronts aren’t as clear cut. Like the coffee shop downtown. It doesn’t open until 10am and closes around 6pm. Inconveniently located 1,426.83 miles from Madison Square and its tremendous foot traffic, how can this business afford to do this?

The answer is perfectly obvious— it’s a mob front.

Our buddies at Google, Facebook, and Instagram can track even more data. They call it “going viral” when a video or meme spreads rapidly across the globe. They know how many “shares” Jesus gets. And who shares him.

We willingly hang all our private details on the public laundry line for all the world to see. And for Facebook to sell. And Google to track.

And sell it they do. You can book it, Danno.

Hope you, your family and close friends, aka ‘known acquaintances,‘ have a great day.
