• someone who tries to hide the fact that they're smoking by holding their hand, with a lit cigarette in it, behind their back

• an unusual verbed noun, i.e. "He nouned that verb so fast he left its past participle dangling like a pair of shoes thrown over a telephone wire."

• a pair of shoes, knotted together and thrown over a telephone wire
