  • Parlay means to party and then lay up with someone afterwards at the same location. Par is short for party , and lay is short for lay up, therefore you parlay. "I'm about to parlay up in here tonight!"

Definitions include: To be treated irresponsibly and without care by a person of the millennial generation.
Definitions include: An eternally aggrieved, querulous and paranoid (typically male) creep who is convinced that a conspiracy exists elevating the basic rights of women above those of the "hard-working and talented" male creep. Despite no evidence to support the same, this type of person assumes women are stupid, lazy, entitled and litigious in the workplace and prone to filing false allegations. Possibly it is unclear to this type of person that most people male or female just want to avoid them/pretend they do not exist rather than oppress, harass or otherwise exploit them. They tend to be very indignant about feminism and women's rights and usually latch on to the rare cases where false allegations were filed by some crackpot (e.g. the Duke lacrosse case) to justify their stance that most creeps are actually innocent. They tend to focus on the few crackpot lefties you find on the web who may not even be real people to justify their stance that a "cancel culture" exists.
Definitions include: quickly.
Definitions include: Totally insane.
Definitions include: energy, spirit.
Definitions include: trouble is coming.
