No, never heard of parajoe either.

I've heard of 'paragraph' if that's any help? That's the chart thingy they use to show how well paras do on their jumps.

Oh, and 'paradise'. That's a specially adapted dice to be used on board games. (Has numbers written on rather than dots, as it can be hard for some paras to count if they throw a 'six')
There's also 'paralyse' which are fibs along the lines of "You get this one and I'll get the next round in"
A 'Parasite' is a watering hole where guys with maroon t-shirts, faded jeans, dessie wellies and beer-bellies gather every now and then to talk about the old days when they weren't able to jump from planes either...

...and 'paranormal' is someone with a 1000 yard stare, knuckles dragging on the ground, a slack jaw and is capable of carrying 300lb on their back without complaint....

Hope that helps....
