Banana
a pejorative term used to describe people who are of East Asian descent, thus considered “Yellow Skinned,” but think, act, and react as a stereotypical Caucasian or non-Asian would. It is particularly used to describe women who have become highly assimilated into Western culture and/or married Caucasians.

Cooties

Kidult

Shivdasani
is slang for a very busy person with a highly elevated sense of self-importance, particularly within the realms of business.
