offensive slang An extremely derogatory term for a Latin-American person, a combination on "Latino" and "latrine" (a toilet).
dated slang In the military, any gossip, rumor, or unfounded information passed along in the latrines (communal toilets). If the latrinograms I've been hearing are to be believed, we're going to be relocated to an area outside of Danang next week. You shouldn't believe every latrinogram you come across, son. When soldiers have too much time on their hands, they start spinning stories.
