prawn sandwich brigade
 n.— «At 2:55 p.m., I was sitting in the directors’ box with what is known as the “Prawn sandwich brigade,” a derogatory term for the club’s VIPs. And as the tension grew in the stands, I felt a little silly sitting there in my tie and jacket instead of wearing my colors and chanting obscenities with the 60,000 raving-mad loonies who bleed red and white.» —“Guess What I Did Last Weekend?” by Joshua Robinson in Columbia University Columbia Spectator (New York City) Oct. 25, 2007.
