Çapulcu(Looter) Humor! (Istanbul)

Mr. Erdoğan, Prime Minister of Turkey called protesters ‘’bunch of looters’’.
Looters’ Turkish equivalent is Çapulcu/chapuhljoo/ .You might have noticed some of our Turkish friends added Çabulcu before their name on Facebook as an objection. On youtube there were guys singing ‘’Everyday I’m çapulling’’(instead of Everyday I’m shuffling) yeah this was historical moment for English and Turkish language because lots of new words added to English language.It inspired me, you can help me to enrich this dictionary.Let’s have fun and be creative with it☺ and please let me know which one is your favorite?
