Newspaper — In modern usage, “newspaper” denotes neither “news” nor “paper.” Rather, it refers to an online source (with nebulous ties to a decaying print-based medium) for gossip and misinformation.

I used my iPhone to read the newspaper’s Pulitzer Prize winning coverage of the American Idol voter scandal.

Occupy — To just kind of chill out somewhere, you know? But like in a protest-y sort of way. Get it? That guy over there gets it. That guy’s cool.
