starvation corner
 n.— «It would be hard for me to shift from the barracks to BOQ. In the officers’ mess, I would be all the way down to starvation corner, at the end of the table. I’d rather be the senior enlisted man.» —“Tall, Tough Marine General’s Top Aide” by Vera Glaser Lima News (Ohio) Mar. 27, 1967. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
