Spanish term or phrase: termear
This is from a text with a great many terms in current Buenos Aires slang:

El neoliberalismo insurreccional llegó para quedarse hace rato. Es una explosión, una batalla mal interpretada, un combate cuerpo a cuerpo, una fiesta de casamiento donde se apuñalan los padrinos, un linchamiento, un amor que brota en los pasillos, es estar amanecido, es termear.

Thanks!

Explanation:
I'm only basing this on Taña's reference, so it might well be wrong simply because it's one source.
In any case, this seems a good fit for that definition. Clearly "humour" is in the eye of the beholder.
