As I get older I am starting to hear phrases and words that I am clueless to what they mean. Or, even worse, assume they mean something very different than I what I think they mean. Lucky for me, I have the power of the Urban Dictionary.

Today I bring you the TOTB, or as the Urban Dictionary defines it, Tuna on Toasted Bagel.
