Nickname for the Vice-President of the United States of America as used on the political satire Veep/HBO/2012-2017.

On the series, actress Julia Louis Dreyfus, (of SEINFELD fame) portrayed Selina Meyer, a former Maryland Senator who becomes the Vice-President (and later President of the United States [POTUS] when the current President resigns due to personal problems).

During Season #1 on Episode #5 titled “Nicknames,” Selina discovers some none-too-flattering Internet nicknames being used to describe her, including: Grizzly Madam, She-Ra, Meyer the Liar, The Batcave, Pissface, The Wicked Witch of the West Wing, Veep Throat, Voldemeyer, Dickless Van Dyke, Tawdry Hepburn, Blunder Woman, Vaselina, and Betty Poop.


Born in Philadelphia, Jerome Alphonse Holst worked 30 years as a librarian. He has since retired and lives in Greensboro, North Carolina.

In addition, he penned the fantasy novel “The Adventures of Glinda Gale,” a retelling of “The Wizard of Oz" and the reference text “The Encyclopedia of Movie and TV Insults.” .
