S

Susan Glenn

  • The term "Susan Glenn" is the result of a marketing campaign executed by Axe, the makers of Axe Body Spray. Starting in May 2012, "Susan Glenn" began appearing on various websites - including this one. July 2012 saw the release of video advertisements and the launch of fearnosusanglenn.com, which definitively identified Axe as the creator.

    (Interestingly, the definition below from the submitter in San Dimas, CA anticipates the marketing-campaign origin.)

    The term hasn't been deleted from this website because Axe's efforts have been successful: this term is now in the vernacular. See the list of tweets containing this term (below) for an illustration.

    Because of the interesting origins of this term, the definitions below haven't been edited, and duplicate definitions haven't been combined.

noun

  • Susan Glenn = the girl, the one that got away

    Not just a girl, but the girl - A female who possesses a combination of physical and behavior characteristics that make her infinitely desirable to a man or boy. Susan Glenns are held up as nearly untouchable, and their very being creates vast emotions in the men who covet them.
    Man, I remember my Susan Glenn - she wasn't just pretty, something about her really blew me away. I couldn't string three words together coherently around her, but if I knew what I know now?
    Who was my Susan Glenn? Heather. She was totally my Susan Glenn.

whole nine yards, the

noun - uncountable

origin

  • One etymological theory is that the term was used by rear gunners in World War Two bombers. As the explanation goes, ammunition belts were nine yards long. When a target was attacked, the machine gunner would sometimes fire "the whole nine yards" of ammunition at the target.

    This etymology doesn't appear to be correct. For more information, see the Wikipedia article for "the whole nine yards".
