I had too much fun looking for words...

 I loved this assignment.  It was easy for me, especially since I'm already familiar with Urban Dictionary [dot] com (I even get a word of the day in my email!

Mac Daddy

"Mac Daddy" or Mack Daddy, is a term used to describe a man with an unusual power over women, and is derived from the French and later Louisiana Creole patois term "maqereau", which means "pimp". Adding "daddy" makes it mean "top pimp". The '70's black-exploitation movie "The Mack", a dramatization of the life of a street pimp, furthered the popularity of the term in urban America. This use of "mac" is quite different from the Scottish/Gaelic term "mac" (son of) used to address an unknown man."

From a blog calling Barack Obama a mac daddy:
Obama is a mac daddy. Obama pimps white women and black women. He got started - you didn't notice him until he brought out those big chested white women with their tight t-shirts and their short pants! That's what a pimp does!

I chose this because I had heard of Mac Daddy before, but just kind of assossiated it with rappers or whatever.  But it completely amused me when I stumbled across this blog entry talking about Obama being a Mac Daddy.  Obama is definitely my Mac Daddy, haha, whatever that means.

"Saddlebags is a word to describe the bulging areas of fat on the upper outer thighs of ladies, in a way that resembles saddle bags being carries on a horse"

On Workouts for Women [dot] com, someone asks how to get rid of saddlebags:
Fat (also know as cellulite) that collects in the thigh, butt and hip area is referred to as saddlebags. So how do you get rid of saddlebags?

I chose this because I saw the word and recognized it from hearing about it before, but didn't realize that it could represent my own body.  I don't know if I like having my body compared to something you would throw on a horse (or a motorcycle as I saw when I Googled Saddlebags)

"A command directed towards a child so he/she will cover her ears while an adult curses."
(FYI, if you follow the main link, entry #3 in "earmuffs" is vulgar, but then again, half the site is...  So fair warning)

From someone talking about golf:
Make sure you have earmuffs available if you don’t like to hear swearing. Otherwise, enjoy the comedic value of a fellow golfer’s poor bunker play.

I think anytime we're by little kids we always try to watch our language -- I know that when I'm by my friend's 5-year old nephew, I was constantly yelling at my friend for not watching his language.  But sometimes, you've just got to swear so I love earmuffs.  It brought back good memories of being a kid and having people yell "Earmuffs!" and then shoving my hands over my ears.

Rad Scale
"The rad scale short for radicle scale is a scale made up by Richelle Dafoe, to confirm how rad or cool people are. the rad scale is a rating out of 10. 10 being the radest and 0 being the queerest Michael Brock"

In a comment on some girl's MySpace:
yeah heath ledger was 10 and 3 quarters on the rad scale...but what has he got to show for it?

A couple of years ago, my sister was constantly saying "Rad", and it bugged the living daylights out of me.  I love the idea of judging people's radness.  I think I'm going to go around and judge people radness.  I totally get an 11.  Okay, maybe not...

I'm glad you had fun with this. And I can't believe you found something that calls Obama a mac daddy. I also thought of rappers or men in the music industry to be mac daddies, but I guess politians can be mac daddies too.
