From Molly Ivins, Nothin' But Good Times Ahead  

The next reporter who [does this, that, or the other thing] ought to be Bushururued, as they now say in Japan, meaning to have somone puke in your lap. —Page 91.

Yeah, I reckoned that incident was whence it came, I just didn't know if it was truly a Japanese coinage or merely an urban legend. Thanks!
