Added two instances from Big Brother Canada
Added DiffLines:
* On the first season of the reality show ''Series/BigBrother'' Canada, [[spoiler:Topaz]] became a person-verb when [[spoiler:she accidentally voted for Jillian to win instead of her best friend, Gary, in the finale.]] Adding insult to injury, [[spoiler:she was the swing vote, causing Gary to lose 4 to 3. As the rules were made very clear to the jurors before voting started, her vote stood.]] Houseguests and jurors in later seasons would express a strong desire not to "pull a [[spoiler:Topaz]]" when [[spoiler:voting in the finale]]. ** A secondary usage is "to be [[spoiler:Topaz'd]]", referencing the time when [[spoiler:Topaz]] had to make a difficult decision while unbeknownst to [[spoiler:her]] the rest of the houseguests watched and heard everything. In season 2, [[spoiler:Ika]] was put in the same position by Big Brother; afterwards, [[spoiler:Adele ran outside and told her she "got Topaz'd, just before the rest of the houseguests screamed at her for insulting them.]]

* In ''LeagueofLegends'', a more derogatory term is "Olafing/ed". Basically, Riot took a balanced champion (called Olaf, obviously) that benefited from the current meta,and nerfed him to the ground by making every skill borderline useless, and then left him to rot for over a year until his rework, which initially was an even bigger disaster that made Olaf even more useless. Eventually, Riot received a few buffs to make him semi-viable on 1 specific team composition, and then was nerfed out of existence again.

* A "Yogism" is something that seems to make sense while you say it, but really doesn't make any sense when you think about it (or doesn't make sense when you first hear it, but actually makes quite a bit of sense once you mull it over), named after noted baseball player Yogi Berra. Examples include things like "It gets late early out here," "If you can't imitate him, don't copy him," and "I could've probably said that."

* On ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark,'' [[TheSmartGuy Kyle]] suspects [[OnlySaneMan Stan]] of sabotaging their efforts to find [[IntrepidReporter Jimmy]] (and vice versa), and sneers that it's "very [[ManipulativeBastard Cartman]] of you." [[TokenEvilTeammate Cartman]], who is watching the fight with relish, comments that that's a low blow, and indeed, when Kyle says it again Stan outright attacks him.

* In ''DykesToWatchOutFor'' Sydney and Mo at their very first meeting discuss a lesbian poet. Mo, who has a crush on her, passionately defends her, telling Sydney to look below the surface, but Sydney is typically dismissive: "If I looked below her surface, you know what I'd see? Nothing. Zip. The void. One big Foucauldian lacuna." The word ''Foucauldian'' refers to French philosopher Michel Foucault.
