Asiental
 adj.— «I brought Tiger Balm to school for show and tell. I didn’t know exactly what it was for but that it looked all asiental and so I thought people would think it was cool. So I passed it around and told everyone to put it under their eyes because Tiger Balm was what made Chinese people so good at math and the violin. They believed me.» —“Making No Friends in Fourth Grade” by Jin in Iowa City, Iowa A Discontent Malcontent (Seattle, Wash.) Mar. 3, 2005. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
