New words to live by: “slop kick”

It is the second full weekend of the month and time, once again, for a new word to live by. This is a word or phrase not currently in use in the U.S. English lexicon, but might need to be considered. Other words, such as obsurd, crumpify, subsus, flib, congressed, and others, can be found by clicking on the tags below. Today’s New Word is a compounding of two words cackle and brain. Without further chattering, slop kick is the new word / phrase for this month:

slop, n. 1) badly cooked or unappetizing drink or food. 2) liquid carelessly spilled or sloshed about. (There are other definitions, but these will do.)

v. the act of the liquid sloshing over the edge of its container. (The liquid slopped to the floor.)

kick, v. 1) to drive with a foot or feet (as in kick the ball). 2) to force, drive, make, etc. 3) to strike in recoiling (as in a gun kicking the shooter when it recoils).

How about slop kick?

slop kick, v. The act of hastily passing off to somebody else something you don’t want to do, but then you still find yourself stuck with at least part of what you tried to get rid of. Often, the most unwanted part.

Example: Barbara slop kicked the Van Buren project to me, but still found herself part of the team tasked with the completing the project, and she was assigned the part she liked least.
