Word Verification Balderdash

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 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 for it. Do this for a week then post your best ones on Thursday.

Here are mine for the week: (sorry only 4 this week and the Rolly Polly reference is an inside joke to my BN friends)

Takcom: Generic advertising term used to describe profitable but tacky commercials. These include ads for condoms, tampons, ED pills, and feminine hygiene products.

Salpiz: The newest pizza craze crossing the nation. It is composed of a then whole wheat crust, pineapple pesto, fresh salmon, capers, and truffle oil. It is all topped with Gorgonzola cheese and is quite yummy. It was the creation of Respol, the premier chef of the Rolly Pollys.

Qartie: The newest robotic creation from the mind of the mad genius scientist Dr. Hayka Ventenskap. Qartie is a household robotic named for his size. He is only a quarter tall as the shortest person in the household. He does menial chores like cleaning out drains, dusting under baseboards, and bleaching tile grout.

Vacinia: Minor Greek goddess of vaccines and medicines. She is the daughter of Aphrodite and Helios. She was often depicted as a young woman carrying tinctures and powders and had temples and/or shrines in every healing center throughout the Greek empire.

I am late Ryan but my post will be up in about 15 minutes.... :)

I applaud Salpiz and maybe that's just because I am really hungry! LOL... I am a little concerned about the cheese.... is that cheese of Gonzo? Like on The Muppets?

Vacinia sounds beautiful... I can picture her peddling her wares!

Oh, where can I sign up for a Qartie? Need someone to clean my baseboards! And we could really use Vacinia's help nowadays with the flu shots!

Another great week Ryan! :)

Takcom is great. There needs to be a generic term everyone can use to lump all the ads together.

Qartie - I need me one of these. How much do they go for? Any help with cleaning is always greatly appreciated and well... wanted.

I bet Qartie could be the hot item on shoppers lists this Christmas!
