ralph / ralphie

noun;
a right handed turn When someone is giving you directions from the back of the car, and plainly telling you left, right, it starts to get boring, and it makes the person driving seem like they are doing something very mundance and perfunctory. To assuage this problem, Joe used the term ralph to mean right hand turn. Not only does it bring up the words ralphing (throwing up) and short for Ralph Nader, but the main importance is that it shares the first letter with right. Therefore, it means a right hand turn. This example of ralph and right hand turn could be expanded to any other r-word to mean a right handed turn.
 
You're going to end up taking a ralph after the trees.
