Hangover (hăng'ō'vur)

1. Unpleasant physical effects following the heavy use of alcohol. These include headache, intermitten shout-outs to Ralph's Buick, and dry heaves that leave your throat so raw your voice sounds like a cross between Andy Devine and Marge Simpson. ("Oh Homey . . . .")

2. A word that never leaves Matthew's lips (cf. Maynard G. Krebs and the word "work"). Example: "I am so huh-huh-huh-huh-horribly afflicted with an upset stomach this morning."

3. And if he ever does say the word, then it's something Matthew never admits he's having because he has an iron-stomach drink-like-a-fish party-like-a-rock-star reputation to uphold. ("Hangover? Hell no. I'm just using the porcelain cellphone to check my messages!")
