"the itis"

More commonly known now as a "food coma," this phrase directly alludes to the stereotype of laziness associated with African Americans. According to Mic, it stems from a longer (and incredibly offensive) version that includes a racial slur.

Modern vernacular dropped the racial slur, leaving a faux-scientific diagnosis for the tired feeling you get after eating way too much food.

I recommend using the technical term instead: postprandial somnolence. Or maybe just say you're stuffed.

And it was too subtle and ironic for most people to realize it was a joke. So here's Sarah Silverman in blackface. (Just type "sarah silverman blackface" into YouTube. I can't be arsed to find the link.)
 
"Nigger-rigged", aka "Mexican Engineering", used to describe hastily cobbled-together solutions to mechanical or electrical problems, meant to work only for a limited time and pass only the most cursory kind of inspection.

"Gypped", as in "swindled", a slur against gypsies.
