CTWF (catastrophic tortilla wall failure)

noun phrase. It's brought down many burritos before their time. And those burritos had families!

Real citation: "If the burrito is especially full or the tortilla is weak, this pressure wave can cause there to be a catastrophic tortilla wall failure or as I call it CTWF, which creates a giant mess."

Made-up citation: "I'm moving to Switzerland, where even CTWF and hurt feelings are covered by universal health care. I'm not as indestructible as I look, you know. I suffer, and I bleed, and when spilled burrito parts fall in the bleeding wound, I cry too."

I've been a victim of CTWF more than once. It hurts. It hurts bad.

That's why I call it The Silent Killer. Of lunch.
