From Urban Dictionary:
cobra yawn. The involuntary spraying of saliva while yawning. Much like the venom spray from a cobra.
Great term. I'm amused/disgusted/embarrassed when this all-too-frequently happens to me. Now I at least know what to call it.

In a recent post I mentioned that I found eating junk food to be my greatest source of junk food these days. Well, apparently this very phenomenon plagues a lot of people, according to a new book called The End of Overeating. What a coincidence. Geez, the author even uses the word "eatertainment." He is taking about me! To no one's surprise, the food industry exploits the shit out of our cravings. The subject is more interesting than I'm making it sound. There's a post at Boing Boing that better highlights the books main points.
