Trust me, you need one. If there's one thing CiT is known for, it's being outrageous, over-the-top, and full of made-up words and obscure terms. If you haven't the courage to ask us what something means, or don't want to look like an ignorant peasant, feel free to peruse this dictionary and educate thyself! :P The list is alphabetically ordered, just fyi.
