Caucapino
 n.— «Harrison’s father is Filipino American. Harrison’s mother Stephanie Isaacson is white. Maybe that’s why I instinctively couldn’t resist Harrison’s story. His family mirrors my own. I have three kids who I lovingly refer to as “Caucapinos.”» —“Two-Year-Old Needs A Christmas Miracle” AsianWeek (San Francisco, California) Dec. 22, 2006. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
