Double-Entendre of the Year: Backdoor Cutter

Posted By Carson Cistulli On May 18, 2012 @ 1:08 pm In Highly Reputable and Totally Real Think Tank | 22 Comments

It’s with great pleasure — and a blood alcohol content cheerfully north of zero — that the editoriat of NotGraphs announces the Double-Entendre of the Year for 2012: backdoor cutter.

The Double-Entendre of the Year is an award intended to celebrate a base-and-ball term that marries function with the slyly transgressive. It’s chosen by our Highly Reputable and Totally Real Think Tank during their annual team-building retreat to the coastal city and carnal playground of Dubrovnik.

A brief list of previous winners:

2011: Front-Hip Sinker

2010: Fisted Single

2009: Donger

2008: Fisted Single

2007: Fisted Single
