n.— «In Florida, back and neck strains are the most common personal-injury claim. They’re so common that attorneys have a nickname for them: “whippy’s.” That’s shorthand for whiplash suffered in, say, a rear-end collision.» —“Bringing suit in Florida? Break a leg” by David Barstow St. Petersburg Times (Florida) July 29, 1994. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
