Urban dictionary

As per urban dictionary, urban dictionary is a place formerly used to find out about slang, and now a place that teens with no life use as a burn book to whine about celebrities, their friends, etc., let out their sexual frustrations, show off their racist/sexist/homophobic/anti-(insert religion here) opinions, troll, and babble about things they know nothing about.

So no wonder the website is not safe for work (nsfw). However I made some efforts to filter out nsfw content out of the meanings. By default the results are very likely safe for work. But it is possible to explicitly request for the first definition on urban dictionary (which could be nsfw)

Examples
