Word Verification Balderdash is a weekly meme hosted by Sheila at One Person's Journey Through A World Of Books.
Here is what you do. You write down all the word verifications you come across as you are posting comments on other peoples blogs. You then 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 a authentic sounding definition for it. Do this for a week and then post your best ones every Thursday.
Here are mine for this week:
Scorpus: The sister of Cerberus who guards the back door of Hades. She is normally depicted as a giant scorpion with three heads; dog, human, and lioness.
Coffeniur: A connoisseur of coffins. These strange individuals can normally be found trying out different coffins in the local funeral homes.
Monkev: The name of the most notorious monk of the 17th century. He was personally responsible for the deaths of hundreds of women he considered to be to pure and innocent to be allowed to live in such a depraved world.
Weroc: Strange creatures found in the deepest ocean trenches. In their natural state they resemble giant Octopi. However when they are feeling threatened they can alter their shape to resemble a great white shark.
Xophia: Woodland fairies found throughout the forests of Minnesota and Michigan. They are widely known for their kindness to lost hikers. They will take the shape of fawns of rabbits and lead hikers to safety.
