slump buster
 n.— «As I made my way to my seat I was accosted by a very large and ugly UF gal (also very drunk) who claimed she “knew me from somewhere.” As I tried to be cordial to her and tell her that I’m sure she was mistaken since I had attended U of Ala. my mind raced.…was she one that I may have spent some “quality’ time with after 2 six-paks during a spring break trip of long ago? Maybe she had done some undergraduate wark in T-town and she was what we used to call a slump-buster?» —“A Midsummers Night’s Dream” by Ed Threet Usenet: rec.sport.football.college July 11, 1994.
