Excerpted from How to Get Around MIT (HoToGAMIT), a student guidebook issued to all incoming MIT freshmen:
flushed – (1) pp. Turned down or out. Disappointed in some endeavor, usually involved with selling oneself. Examples: “I got flushed at the mixer,” “I just got flushed by [fill in fraternity name here]” (2) v. To get a reddish hue on one’s face from heat, exertion, or embarrassment. Example: “I got flushed at the mixer.” (3) pp. Disposed of. When said of a person, this connotes dismissal or expulsion. Example: “I got flushed at the mixer.”
scrod – (1) n. A baby codfish. Example: “I got scrod by the Dining Service.” (2) v. Past tense of screw. Example: “I got scrod by the Dining Service.”
Let’s use our new words in a sentence:
“After being scrod by Boston Casting, I got flushed by MasterChef.”
