Quick thought. 

Everyone always uses the phrase "anal retentive" or "anal" in conversation to signify a person who is meticulously clean, neat, orderly, or whatever about something. It's used so casually that no one bats an eye.

But why doesn't anyone ever use the Freudian opposite in conversation: "Anal expulsive"? That's so much more... vivid, don't you think?

No justice in this world.
