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 people's blogs. You then play Balderdash with them. Now for those of you who don't know how to play, you take up a made up word and come up with an authentic sounding definition for it. Do this for a week and then post your bests ones on Thursday.
Here are mine for this week:
Veeder: Wild vines that grow throughout the woodlands of South Carolina and Virginia. They can be identified by their brown stems with heart shaped green leafs that are speckled with purple spots. The only other way to identify them is when you accidentally walk through a rather large patch of them and find yourself trapped amongst their stems. Of course that won't do you much good because once you are trapped you can never get out and you will find yourself being slowly consumed to feed the carnivorous vine.
CawCaw: Small, annoying black birds that never seem to shut up. Their cawing can get so loud at times that small babies and the elderly will find blood oozing out of their ears and will experience horrible headaches that last for days.
Pligger: Genetic crossbreeds that were created by overly full of themselves scientists in a secret lab that should be bombed out of existence. They are a horrible cross between pig, lion and tiger. They have the snout and forelegs of a pig, the mane and body of a lion, and stripes and back legs of a tiger. They were made to be front line soldiers in the upcoming Cross dimensional Wars. They were found to be uncontrollable and all know specimens have been destroyed. Of course there is always the chance they weren't all found.
Blockmon: Ancient Aztec guardians that were used to secure temples and royal palaces. They were composed of large blocks of stone stacked on top of each other. They bore the crude outline of a human but were 15 times the size of an average adult male. They were normally armed with large stone spears but they were not necessary as they were more than capable of simply stomping on any trespasser.
Downder: Specialized term for thunder that is produced while a storm is winding down. It tends to be less severe and is no longer capable of scaring small children and dogs.
You are histerical.... I think veeder is my fav this week but Blockmon takes a close second.... I picture blockmon having a jamaican look and dreadlocks....
Haha... these are great. I especially like Pligger and Downder. (We have CawCaws around here, so they're too annoying to be amusing.)
"Caw-caw" makes me think of other annoying sounds, like the "yelp-yelping" of the dog who lives across the courtyard! Yikes!
Love this game!
Maybe the Pliggers could get rid of the CawCaws? Think we have CawCaws around here, as they are incredibly annoying on Saturday mornings!
Another great week Ryan!
Great words once again Ryan! I love CawCaw. There are so many of those around. They are the only birds I really don't like. Hey, are those the birds that were used in the movie The Birds?
If you would like to stop by I have my words up. Thanks!
You're so good at this! I always finish reading these posts with a smile. My favorite this week was Veeder...great word (and definition!). Keep this up...
Some people have had the same results as the CawCaw from my singing - but that's a whole other matter, lol.
Great words as usual, though a bit of a dark theme this week. Perhaps Halloween related?
