n. A weapon masquerading as a toy consisting of a weighted, blunt metal spike with a handle and large plastic vanes. Thrown underhanded, it flies through the air and lands point-down, ideally in the lawn, and hopefully within the target ring.

v. Proposed term to take the opposite role of nerf in games such as Asheron's Call and EverQuest -- to upgrade the power of a weapon, spell, or other game mechanic. Some would say that Diablo 2 has a number of skills which need to be lawn-darted.

A derogatory name for the F-16. With only a single engine, the plane does vaugely resemble a lawn dart. Especially if that one engine fails.

Pilots' Jargon

A song by Boston band Ed's Redeeming Qualities which made its debut on their 15-song tape "Ed's Kitchen". Sung in a deadpan, mournful way which makes the lyrics even funnier.

It was the third of July and the weather was fine
Ed brought the hot dogs, the croquet set was mine
But the red ball was missing and three mallets were bent
Ed suggested lawn darts so to K-Mart we went

We looked by the yard games, we looked by the grills
But we couldn't find lawn darts come high water or hills
We talked to the sales clerk and she started to cry
She said "They're off the shelves now," and she told us both why:

A kid was pegged in the head with a lawn dart
Her dad didn't see 'er, that's the worst part;
A kid was pegged in the head with a lawn dart
So they're now off the shelves at the K-Mart

Well we both felt so bad that we gave up the search
Ed went to bed, and I went to church
And now we never grill hot dogs, and we don't play yard games
Since we heard that sad story things just aren't the same

Pegged in the head with a lawn dart (lawn dart!)
Her dad didn't see 'er, that's the worst part;
Pegged in the head with a lawn dart
So they're now off the shelves at the K-Mart
