creeping crud
 n.— «Pharmacists who don’t write the name of the medicine on the bottle, only the name of the doctor (illegible) and a number. So six months later you can’t use your specific for creeping crud because you don’t know which bottle to shake well.» —“Criticall Speaking” by Robert Pollak The Austin News (Chicago, Illinois) May 19, 1965.
