Monkey Spunk and Brick Dust  my first job post college was as an engineering apprentice.  In order to cool the tools tips when milling or turning a milky coloured fluid (mixture of oil and water I think) is squirted onto the tools.  The mixture was called slurry, but one of the apprentice instructors referred to it as monkey spunk and brick dust.  To this day I refer to any milky coloured fluid/solution where I don’t know it’s contents as monkey spunk and brick dust.

Mahoosive  massive or very large.
