  • Today, I learned a slang ‘xyzpdq.’

    This means “examine your zipper, pretty damn quick.”

    Xyz can also be paraphrased something like “your fly is open.”

    I think I must remind myself to examine my zipper frequently.

    By the way, when we want to say xyz in Japan, we often say “window of society is open(社会の窓が開いているよ).”

    This phrase implies “the important thing is hidden in the window of society.”
