Cursor dipped in X
<jargon> The metaphorical source of the electronic equivalent of a poisoned-pen letter.
Derived from English metaphors of the form "pen dipped in X" (where X = e.g. "acid", "bile", "vitriol").
These map over neatly to this hackish usage (the cursor being what moves, leaving letters behind, when one is composing on-line).
"Talk about a nastygram!
He must've had his cursor dipped in acid when he wrote that one!"
