Author Mary Roach has a new book called Grunt: The Curious Science of Humans at War. We ran an excellent interview with her a few weeks ago and you can read it here.

To help promote the book, Roach took to the streets of New York City and asked random people to define the following terms: grunt, chest candy, snot locker, galloping dandruff, rectal cranial inversion.

Most civilians didn’t have a clue and their answers are pretty hilarious.
