Trixie
 n.— «Someone a few offices over from me is screeching like a drunk Trixie at a Jimmy Buffet show. It is the sort of high-pitched hysteria often practiced by the not-very-bright, where you cannot tell if something wonderful (lottery jackpot) or horrible (flesh-ripping weasels) is happening by listening to the sound alone. It could be either.» —by Mimi Smartypants Mimi Smartypants (Chicago, Illinois) Mar. 17, 2005. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
