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:

CSNYOPS:  The newest album by Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young.  The album has been met with very critical assesments so far as most listeners feel like they have heard it all before.  Of course that would assume that anything they have ever done doesn't sound the same.

Coclimnt:  A new fruit hyrbird dreamed up by the scientists over at Bath & Body Works after they realized they hit paydirt with the coconut/lime verbena scent.  This new fruit is slightly larger than a typical lime, has a dark green, hairy outershell that needs to be cracked open as a normal coconut does. The flesh is still green in color but has the texture and taste of coconut.  The aroma is the same as the body lotions and hand soaps and will transport you to sunny beaches everytime you enjoy this luscious fruit.  They will be sold in Bath & Body Works stores for the next 13 months before being sold to supermarkets worldwide.

Higgle:  What you call a giggle that is interrupted by a hiccup.  This is typically casued by giggling while drinking or eating and can cause severe damage to the diaphragm if not treated quickly.  Anyone suffering for from this affliction for over 8 minutes needs to consult a doctor immediately or run the risk of hiccuping the diaphragm up and choking on it.

WasacateThe following is a small part of a confidential report by the United States Biological Research and Development Corporation to the Presidents Council on Exploiting Natural Resources
 We have spotted a small bipedal animal high in the Andes Mountains.  We know little of this timid creature other than it's apperance which is quite amazing.  From a distant you would mistake these creatures for human children with sunglasses and fur coats on.  Once you get closer to them the differences stand out.  The fur coats are in fact a 1 inch layer of white and grey spotted fur that cover the entire body head to toe.   The sunglasses are areas of black fur that encirlce the eyes which are black as well with no visible distinction between a pupil and iris.  All communication has been rejected and after the frist 2 inital sightings they are quick to run away and can no longer be spotted after a time of only 17 seconds.  We are not even sure if Wasacate is the correct name for them as we have no clue what they call themselves, they were named after the first human to see them, Dr. Wassilia Wasacate.  Further research and study is needed to determine if they will be a threat to our development of the mountain range to make way for condominiums and highways.  Once that determination is made, we can proceed further.

Other Players This Week:

Hehe... I like higgle. Although I'm not sure if one can actually choke on one's own diaphragm. :)

I participated this week.
