Word Verification Balderdash


For those of you unfamiliar with the greatness that is Balderdash, here is what you do. You write down all the word verifications you come across as you are commenting on other people's blogs. Then you play balderdash with them. Now for those of you who don't know how to play, you take a made up word and come up with an authentic sounding definition of it. Do this for a week and post your best ones on Thursday.

Come back and leave a link to your post and I will add it to the bottom of the post.

Here are mine for this week:

Cryptoy:  New line of desinger toys marketed to the Goth demographic.  Some of the first ones are a remote control coffin with rattling bones, a Graveyard version of Monopoly, and a fortune telling shrunken head.  The will be hitting the shelves of the retailer Hot Topic within the next few weeks.

Shashaw:  The prison where deposed Shas are held while waiting execution.  Their cells are well furnished with all the food and concubines they can desire in order to make their last days as pleasent as possible.

Lovdom:  Pleasure domes where all you romantic fantasies come true.  They were built by the Ronsom corporation a few years ago as a way to control an ever disruptive population.  The domes are filled with all the romance that anyone would desire.  Candelight dinners, long walks on the beach, picnics in a field of clover, or even a wonderous Summer time hot air balloon ride with the man or woman you want.  There is a darkside to them as well.  Once the romance fades, which it often times does, the client normally ends up in a deep state of despair and unhappieness.

Barwat:  New bar stool designed to send a small electric shock up the back of the patron once the bartender thinks they are drinking too much.

Here are some other players this week:

Take two: barwats are why I don't hang out on bars, lol (must remember to preview before posting:-)

Great words, Ryan.

Have a few co-workers who would love Cryptoys! Think there's a Hot Topic at the mall. I should go ask them when their next shipment will arrive. *L*

Would love to see barwats in action! Bet bartenders would have fun with those!

Only came across a few words this week, so almost didn't play. Couldn't resist though, and mine is here: http://alexia561.blogspot.com/2010/02/word-verification-balderdash-19.html

Cryptoy- you should jump on that as a marketing strategy!

I was thinking a lovdom would be a great place to visit, until I came to the part of the despair. Maybe I will stay away.

I do love the new toys though - cryptoy. They sound really neat and great for Halloween.

Once again you out did yourself. Wonderful words and definitions.

Very clever! And here's another: smstsiti (the one I had to type in to submit this comment).

*Laughing* Somebody should have set me on a barwat on more than one occasion in my misspent youth!
