From the Brave New World Dictionary (alternate edition)

Bush-ido: n a claim of adherence to the Japanese warrior spirit of Bushido made by a false warrior, specifically a president of the United States. ent U.S. English slang term bullshit: foolish insolent talk.


  1. Remember the word "bushusuru", meaning: to throw up on the Japanese Prime Minister in public?

  2. bushibravado: tough talk by guys who've never served...

  3. Doug,

    Yes. Doesn't "bushuru" also refer to wetting your pants at the thought of having to show up for you TANG drills?


    Wow. Just wow.
