phlemectomy [n]

the expulsion of the mouth contents, literally or figuratively, often in moments of extreme emotion or illness. Usually a colloquial term is used instead eg
-- spit the dummy; lose your lolly; have a cow [often real spittle/phlem expelled in proccess which can earn a response of "say it don't spray it"]
-- technicolour yawn; talk to Herb/Ralph/God on the great white telephone [illness]
-- spray your coffee [often through nose as well] at something shocking or very funny.

barbicidenoun

A translucent blue disinfectant solution manufactured by King Research. It was invented in 1947 by Maurice King and marketed heavily by his brother, James King, around the United States. It is used in barber shops and hair salons to disinfect items such as combs and scissors, where it is a very well-recognized symbol of cleanliness and sanitation, and has been for decades; indeed, a jar of Barbicide sits on display in the Smithsonian Institution's National Museum of American History. In many salons, each barber or hair stylist will have his or her own supply of Barbicide displayed on a shelf in a distinctive glass-and-stainless-steel Barbicide jar, also made by King Research, and many customers demand that a comb or scissors be dipped in it if dropped.
