Word Verification Balderdash

Word Verification Balderdash is a weekly meme hosted by Sheila at One Persons 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 a made up word and come up with an authentic sounding definition for it. Do this for a week and then post your best ones on Thursday.

Here are mine for the week:

Nubchub: That small nub of fat that you can never get rid of no matter how much dieting and exercise you do. It normally ways any where from 2 to 5 pounds and can be found residing around the waistband, thighs, or jowls. The only way to get rid of nubchub is liposuction.

Muggimp: Mischievous spirit that has adapted to the human infestation by disguising itself as a mugger. It can be found in most major cities and it lives to wreak havoc amongst the humans it despises. It will pick a victim, mug him/her, and as a final blow it will curse the victim to be colorblind the rest of their lives. The only way a Muggimp can be identified by what it really is by the eyes, one is silver the other is violet in color.

Pveda: Russian goat cheese. Has a very pungent flavor and is often times combined with onions and garlic while it is being formed into blocks. In Russia the cheese is mainly used for fondues and by the wealthy on grapefruit. In the US the cheese is mainly used to play practical jokes on unsuspecting dinner guests.

Roptic: Robotic eyes that were designed by the Cthullu Corporation and are used to replace a human eye that is damaged beyond surgical repair. They are still in the experimental stage and have been know to cause some serious complications. Four dimensional depth perception, a green glow emanating from the eye even when closed, and tears of oil are just a few of the more strange ones. They should be, barring any other problems, made available to the general public within the next few years.

Twinder: The scientific term for the made up language most twins develop during adolescence. No two sets of twins use the same Twinder but they all have syntax similarities and often develop the language around the age of 5.

Ryan you always can make me laugh! I was trying to link up your blog this morning to the post but the internet here was being a pain and I couldn't connect it.

You rock! Connecting you now! :)

Love all of your words!

Can I trade in my nubchub for a roptic? Think the glowing green eye would be really cool! And tears of oil? Awesome! *L*

Hi, Ryan! This is the first time I've heard of "twinder." Very, very interesting. Now, I'm wondering if all twins evolve their twinder. Must Google. Hehehe.

Teddyree said...

hahaha thanks for the giggle Ryan. Very clever, I especially liked nubchub.

PS. I just saw on your profile, you're an Eeyore admirer, what great taste you have LOL me too!
