"This attractive female elephant seal, observed at Cap Hallett in Victoria Land, is the subject of a 'Rhubarb' among the male judges who are trying to decide who has a date with her for tonight. As to the outcome--well, she just couldn't care less."--Commander Standish Backus As a slang term, "rhubarb" means a heated, disorderly dispute, not necessarily a fistfight but one involving a lot of yelling.
