Slang Gang Word of the Day

I-Peeper - eye-peeper(noun); a person, usually in the workplace, who looks at someone's IPOD screen to see what it is they are listening to and then comments on it, or uses that information later for some other purpose.

"Joe I-peeped me yesterday when I was listening to Black Sabbath, and then during lunch, joked to my boss that I listen to 'the devil's music'".

"Hey, I don't mean to be an I-Peeper but I see we have a mutual Clay Aiken thing going on."

I hate it when someone is an I-Peeper getting their nose all up in my business. Is it really going to benefit them any to see that I am listening to The Carpenters?

Are you going to keep doing posts like this on a regular basis? Because i find them to be so informative and educational. It'd be nice to understand what people are saying, and actually use the "lingo" so I don't feel like a giant old dork.
