While doing research to make sure last week's Miami Slang Glossary was on point, Riptide checked Urban Dictionary to see if we had missed anything. It didn't help. Instead, we just found a bunch of allegedly Miami-related terms we've never heard before and were probably made up by bored internet users. The vast majority of the terms were imagined crude sexual positions that we're pretty sure no one has ever attempted in real life.
Here are our favorites, only a few of which are crude sexual positions. Has anyone ever heard these terms in real conversation? Please let us know in the comments.
The Miami Flu
Dade County Search Warrant
Moon Over Miami
Port of Miami
Timeshare in Miami
Miami Totem Pole
Keep Miami New Times Free... Since we started Miami New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Miami, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Miami with no paywalls.
