n.— «A punter “squeezing” a sequential threesome in hearts, along with a disposable “bush-card” and the ten, queen and king of clubs, requiring only the jack in that suit to “sing” rummy. He finds it at next dip and, springing to his legs, trumpets a personal fanfare, tucking the winning card into the neat space. Generally referred to as an “inter-sploosie,” city-folk elaborated on that coinage, describing insertions like that of the knave as fitting it “between Afong and Globe.”» —“Between Afong and Globe” by Terry Joseph Trinidad & Tobago Express Nov. 12, 2004.
