It's not a reference, just a stupid thing we came up with. We might replace it in future printings.

We defined it as "You know when someone who doesn't wipe good gets sweaty, and the sweat runs into the poop. Yeah, now make that a verb..."

The problem with "swooping" is there are too many slang definitions, but the one I've heard used, and have always understood it as is, the act of an individual (usually male) jumping in between a female friend and an unwanted potential suitor.

A great deal of the "American Media" related ones.

Had to look up "The Fanta Girls"
Most people I know shrug at "Adderall"

And there are a bunch of other I could mention. Though thanks to Family Guy most people understand "The Kool-Aid Guy"

Unfortunately most of us know who Glenn Beck is.

I am finding TheUrbanDictionary.com very helpful in any terms I don't understand. In fact, it has an entry defining "swooping" as "Surreptitiously checking Urban Dictionary during a game of Cards Against Humanity, because you have no idea what the card you just drew means."

I recently bought the 1990s Expansion Pack. I understand most of the references, except Log(TM). Unfortunately, it's such a common word that trying to find it online is fruitless, and as far as I can tell, no one else has asked online.

Also, I like the idea of Swooping being "swimming while pooping", but that might just be the immature side of me.

Yep, checked that one. Which makes the earlier ones claiming a ton of definitions hilarious.
