Pronounced 'co-hog'. Originally(and still) a hardshelled clam. Cherrystone when small, tasty chopped, restuffed in the shell and baked when large. Used on the playground to signify stupidity and lack of style. ie "Did you see what he did? That quahog!", found only in Rhode Island US.

quaid
num.

In the movies 'Quaid' was the name given to the leader of a rebel army of mutants in the sci-fi movie 'Total Recall'. He was the mutated baby that lived as a slimey giant growth on another mans body and not dissimilar to siamese twins.

However, in the harsh, cruel reality of Lewes Priory School 'Quaid' was also the name given to the large, boil-like growth on the side of Ben Pattersons neck. Such was the cruelty of kids that whole conversations could be had with 'Quaid' without even having to acknowledge the poor boy upon which it grew. A typical example would have been to approach Ben Patterson and say loudly "Hi Quaid. How's going?... Oh sorry Ben,I didn't see you standing there".

Another example would be to completely ignore poor Ben Patterson as you passed him in a corridor while saying "Hi Quaid".

His horror eventually came to an abrupt end when 'Quaid' was finally surgicaly removed. Although rumour has it that he actually burst in the shower.

quis - eggo
n.

Pronounced "Quiz" and "Eggo". I think this is here already somewhere as a call and response where someone is giving something away; this is definitely from the Latin as there are some additional words somtimes used; eg if there are two or more people shouting "Ego" at about the same time and the person shouting "Quis" isn't sure who was first or doesn't like all of the people claiming, it would then open up to people shouting "Mihi" and then the "Quis"-er could choose one of the claimants by looking at them and saying "Tibi".

Obviously this variant only takes place in schools where everyone has learnt some Latin (literally as far as I remember "Quis?"=Who?, "Ego"="I", "mihi"=to me (sometimes "meum"=mine, "tibi"= to you (or "teum"=yours)). I suppose logically the "Quis"-er could say "vobis" to give out a number of things to the whole lot but I never heard this!, Pretty much any UK prep school up until at least the 1980's. Even posh kids grow out of talking to each other in Latin by the time they hit puberty!

(ed: I never took Latin - and since I have no idea what any of this means, it was included verbatim)

qweeb
n.

More derogitory version of the word "Dweeb" meaning a Dork of questionable sexuality. Some history. The contributors school had a teacher who would allow "low grade" swearing but would only do so on paymnt into a "swear box" of 25 cents a word. Thus the class invented many new words based on words already in common usage to avoid the payments. Thus the words were used (and abused) regularly in the town. Lots of other words invented at this time were:
