Slang Gang Word of the Day


May 14: cobra yawn

The involuntary spraying of saliva while yawning. Much like the venom spray from a cobra. In most cases the yawner doesn't realized it has happened only finding the aftermath once the yawn is over.

I just cobra yawned all over my keyboard five minutes prior to writing this definition.

**I hate it when that happens**

Oh yeah. And this happens sometimes when I cough as well.

HAH that is so much better than "gleeking" which is what I thought it was called.

I call my husband venom every time he yawns, not so much for the spray as for the sound!
