DG Vocab List - Fun or Catchy Terms

I would love to hear the list of terms you have heard or came up with that seems to be catching on in your area. Here are 2 I have been using recently. Please post as many as you want. It will be interesting to see what kind of list come out of this.

Dead Man - when your putt hits the side of the basket and falls straight down to the ground. Note: This came from a guy in Fort Worth who is a pretty good player. Didn't get his name though. I had to make the joke of saying, "Dead Man Walking." when his friend was walking toward the basket to pick it up.

Chain Smoking - This is when someone has made 2 great putts in a row. He is considered to be Chain Smoking on Chain Smokin'.

Orlin,
Where and how did you come up with so many crazy terms? Nice work, I like them all. I mean how often can you use black ace? Has that ever happened?

Plinko - a disc falling from a tree

Gust from the Gods - when the wind completely changed the shot (sometimes good and sometimes really bad)

Going South - when your disc starts diving down into a drop off, like a creek or gorge instead of making it across as in "You're going South."

Grab Your Fins - said after someone just sent their disc swimming ('snorkel' also used)
