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:
 
Raich:  Slang term for people who are so rich they are "raking" in the money.
 
Polaha:  Slang term for that "aha" moment in politics.  Normally happens when a strategist finally come up with a brilliant idea to get a candidate out of a tough spot.
 
Gaspin:  Car racing term for a complete spin, done while pressing down the gas pedal all the way.  This is a dangerous maneuver that can result in horrific crashes but when done at the right time, it has the effect of confusing the other drivers and guaranteeing you victory.
 
Frobby:  Horrific slang term used by the tabloids in England for the Bobby that was found frozen under a pond.  He was missing for 15 days before his body was discovered by two young children ice skating on a Sunday afternoon.  No one knows who is responsible for this tragedy, but it does appear to be the result of foul play.

I like raich. There are a few times I think I can use this word. I wish I was raich. lol.

Gaspin, does that happen in the races on the tracks? I don't really watch racing.
