I recently submitted a term and a definition to Urban Dictionary because I thought it was funny and would get some chuckles. It was denied by the editors, whom I can only assume have at least one reason, which they neglected to mention. Since they didn’t give a reason, I have no idea what it might be. Their loss.

I figured I could share it here, instead.

GLaDOS’s Revenge

Jocular term for symptoms of glycoalkaloid toxicity (including headaches, diarrhea, and cramps), particularly those resulting from the consumption of potatoes or potato products.

Popular culture reference to the Portal series of video games.

Compare Montezuma’s revenge.


“It’s probably GLaDOS’s revenge. She really does hate your guts.”

Please enjoy. If anyone else wants to try submitting it to Urban Dictionary, you’re more than welcome to try. I’m not going to bother with them anymore. I’ve previously submitted “definitions” for Umop the Clown and Dungeon Master, since the latter needed a better definition/example, and the former didn’t exist.
