thunder
 n.— «And by men, we mean those already at the peak of their careers, proven by their luxury vehicles while parked nearby their drivers play cards, waiting for their bosses till the wee hours. Suave and moneyed, these new breed of mature gentlemen, in the language of today’s youth, are widely referred to as the “thunder cats” or “thunders” for short. (If you belong to the same age range, ask your teenage daughter what these feline-inspired terms mean.)» —“Sitti lights beyond the ‘thunder cats’” by Totel V. De Jesus Manial Standard Today (Philippines) Apr. 29, 2006. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
