n.— «After suffering a back injury as an exercise rider, he spent five years supporting his family by rummaging through trashed betting slips tickets in hopes of finding neglected winners. The practice is called “stooping” because the scavengers bend over to pick up the slips. But Periban did more than bend. He grabbed, he stuffed, he kicked, he bagged.» —“Jorge Periban beats the odds in many ways” by Bill Plaschke Los Angeles Times Dec. 24, 2008. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
