P'n'M field trip

The "P'n'M" part of P'n'M field trip stands for either point'n'mock or pose'n'model, depending on how cynical the participants feel. It is an expression used for bar or club outings, where the tarter-tongued of us will invariably make comments about the people we see. Sometimes we know them, sometimes we don't. We like to think we're being arch and witty, but it usually comes out more like snide and catty. Fortunately for our karma, we are more often than not our own largest targets, holding ourselves up for equally vicious self-mockery. Originally used for trips to Club Universe, Pleasuredome, or Club Faith, the term has become venue-nonspecific.
