Now that it's baseball season, I think I'll bat out a slang quiz for you to bat around. I hope these vivid new American slang terms won't drive you batty. OK, you're at bat - if you bat one thousand, you are listening to America talking a very "now" language, and you get around among college students, druggies, truckers, cons, astronauts, and the like.
