“put a nickel in someone” definition from Double-Tongued Dictionary


Less a Word of the Moment than a Phrase of the Moment, but I’m happy to make an exception for such a terrific colloquialism.

Put a nickel in someone, v. phr.

To provoke a person to excitement or talkativeness; to rile or anger someone; to cause someone to act. Also put a quarter in someone and, rarely, put a dime in someone.
