GUBU
 adj.— «My youth was spent in an English hospital, receiving treatment for scoliosis, which also caused spinal curvature. So we were both, as far as Haughey hard-liners were concerned, twisted. But to suggest this was a voluntary effort on my part was a GUBU notion in keeping with the times.» —“An Irishman’s Diary” by Denis Coghlan Irish Times (Dublin, Ireland) Oct. 25, 2003.
