starvation corner n. a literal or notional place of little sustenance, especially that part of a large gathering (a banquet, mealtime in a dining hall, a family get-together, etc.) in which food has yet to be served or eaten. Editorial Note: Often capitalized as if it is a proper noun. The 1884 citation may be a jocular reference to “cornering” the market on starvation. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
