sorry, basketcase is not a word, it is a phrase, all the others are stand alone words, that made it grammaticaly incorrect, but still cute

Slipstream? Never REALLY heard of that one, interesting... and is it just me or is basket-case a phrase and not a word?

Slipstream:

1. The airstream pushed back by a revolving aircraft propeller.

2. The airstream generating reduced air pressure and forward suction directly behind a rapidly moving vehicle.

Looking up a word > Assuming it does not exist
