According to Urban Dictionary, the site has almost 5 million words listed. Some of the entries are 'new' definitions of everyday words; words that commonly mean one thing but have evolved to mean something entirely different in 'today's' language. Other entries are made-up words and phrases.
Afterclap: The person who keeps clapping after all applause has stopped. Usually an overly enthusiastic parent attending his/her child's theatre performance, dance recital, or ball game.
Example - Even though Joe is a lousy soccer player, his dad is always good for a loud afterclap.
Dungeon Tan: The complexion of a video game addict who never goes outside.
Example - We haven't seen Earl in days. He must be in the basement playing Xbox and working on his dungeon tan.
