get PO'd

To become very disgruntled, irritated, angry, or outraged. ("PO'd" being a euphemistic abbreviation of "pissed off.")

po' boy

A traditional sandwich from New Orleans, Louisiana, made with a long roll of French bread and containing a variety of fillings, almost always with some kind of meat or fried seafood. ("Po' boy" being short for "poor boy," supposedly referring to striking workers in 1929 to whom a local restaurant served such sandwiches.) Primarily heard in US. Ever since leaving New Orleans to go to college, I can't stop craving a proper roast beef po' boy from back home. I'm ordering a dozen po' boys for the party, so if you have any food allergies, let me know this afternoon.

po-faced

Having an overly stern, disapproving, and humorless demeanor. Primarily heard in UK. The film works because it isn't po-faced about it; instead, it uses humour to great effect in highlighting just how multifaceted the difficult topic can be. I'll never forget the bizarre school dances we had in our religious private school: dozens of hormone-frenzied teens trying to have fun under the watchful eyes of po-faced priests.
