I have just come across the word in "Rabbit at Rest" by John Updike, and I have added the quote to back it up. Also, it can be found here : [] zigzig20s 10:58, 6 January 2007 (UTC)
I don't see why the verification tag should still be here...It can be found in a dictionary as I said earlier, and there are even quotes with the word...zigzig20s 14:14, 8 January 2007 (UTC)

- No, so I've copied them to the /Citations page and left a copy of the oldest three (which are still pretty recent anyway). DAVilla 19:35, 22 January 2007 (UTC)
And once more we French win : 11 usual equivalents for "tsuris" !
But few are those among you who cumulate latin culture - heavy colonial history - and 3 invasions in a century...Serves us right ! T.y. Arapaima 15:40, 9 February 2010 (UTC)
- Yes, when you are a latin-cultured country, have invaded and have been invaded a lot, your language is bound to treasure a lot of words equivalent to "tsuris...13 equivalents ! (& are not they rather 4 passive invasions ?)...Funny how every slang "word of the day" triggers a lot of comments ...
"Binz" ( or "bintz") is said in our everyday's everybody's french little "dico" (Petit Larousse 2008 , p. 116) to be derived from our french word "caBINetS" (= loo) . I think it rather comes from a phrase handed over to us by our german good neighbours, during the stay many of us have done in "stalag" (Stammlager) : "Ich BIN IN ..." T.y.
