"Your mouth is writing checks your ass can't cash," is something TV Dr. Phil McGraw's father said to him as a boy when he would voice wild plans or notions. It means that talk is cheap relative to performance, or that promising something and delivering on it are two different things. A phrase similar in meaning is "Money talks, bullshit walks."

.
"I'm going to get a job selling fuzzy dice door-to-door. I'll be rich!"

"Boy, your mouth is writing checks your ass can't cash."

Piss Hard-On (or Hardon):

A graphic way to describe the male condition of waking up with a very stiff erection coupled with a need to urinate.

The leading causes of this syndrome are thought to be:

1) a full bladder rubs against the prostate gland which then arouses the rest of a man's sexual machinery as though getting ready for intercourse; or the more recent theory, that

2) during a routine night's sleep, a man will have four or five erections but usually they don't awaken him. This is probably the body's way of running "routine diagnostic checks" on his various systems, including sexual readiness. The one that wakes you up either because it's time to wake up or because you're dying to go to the bathroom is the P.H-O.
I hate the term "Piss Hard-On". It's ugly. Much better to me are "morning wood" or the evocative "morning glory," which is the term we used in the (USA) South.

For a funny look at how difficult it is to pee with an erection, look at the DVD outtakes of Steve Carrel's movie THE FORTY-YEAR-OLD VIRGIN.

(Occasionally "cubby bear"): A hairy young gay man with the beginnings of a bear's burly or stocky figure. He doesn't have to be short; to indicate shortness of stature or slenderness in a hairy young gay man, the going term is "otter".

.
"Roman Wright is six foot two and hairy-chested. He's a bear cub because he's only 28 years old.

With that height, he will definitely never be an otter, though."

Two meanings:

(a) A man who is comfortable with or embraces typical working-class dress, usually work clothes, that have changed very little over the years.

(b) A man, usually a young man, who enjoys dressing up but in the outmoded 'square' fashions of the Fifties and early Sixties.

.
(a) Tom dresses like a bear but he's not gay. In that flannel shirt, work jeans and lace-up boots, he's classically retrosexual.

(b) Jeff loves to scout out fedoras, slim ties and Ivy-League cut suits. The more he looks like Frank Sinatra in the late Fifties or a character from TV's MAD MEN in the early Sixties, he is really pushing the retrosexual button.

Term adopted by fans of CBS-TV's police-procedural drama, THE MENTALIST. Came from a typically offhanded slighting remark by title character Patrick Jane (Simon Baker). Refers to the kind of just-barely-dressy beachcomber-type sandals often worn by Teresa Lisbon, co-star (Robin Tunney).

.
"My firm is very conservative and frowns slightly on Lisbon Loafers, even in the summer. Actually, policy is kind of hypocritical because no one minds secretaries in them, but nonetheless it's a big turn-off to HR when a women interviews in them. Unfair, no?"

Smarm was the name given to a particularly heavy and cloying hair grease worn by Indian men in the nineteenth century.

Thus a "smarmy" person is cloying, over-ingratiating, oleaginous ("oily"), close, and over-familiar.
.
"Who was that man who pretended to know you so well?"

"Oh, Kenneth. Ignore him. He confuses charm with smarm."
