Watch the video to find out more.  For the full collection of the MeatEater Glossary, where you’ll learn everything from the technical to the arcane, go to the Glossary Page.

Kenyon: “If your buddy puts you in a spot and you have an unlucky day… Another fun way to use this term is to use this word to rib your friends accuse them of garholing you. You might get in a better spot the next time around.”
