New Word Wednesday #8

Every time I comment on a website where I have to type a word verification to get my comment posted, I can't help but think, "What a waste! What could possibly be a very helpful word is now going to disappear and never be seen again." With all the attention being paid to "going green" in this country, I think it's time for bloggers to go green and recycle the letter combos used in word verification. (I personally did away with the process to eliminate the waste of words, but some people just aren't as conservation minded!)

I decided a couple of weeks ago to start a meme called "New Word Wednesday", thus creating a dictionary of new words based on the letter combos that pop up in the word verification process. You may feel free to do the same, or to grab my words and use them. (You know, if you use a new word three times, it's in your vocabulary forever; at least that's what I've heard) Just think, we can learn new words and go green just by recycling/reusing the words that show up at comment time.

Here are this week's words:


berfs:  a variation of Smerfs that come in brown; as in, "The Smerfs have feces-colored relatives referred to as the berfs."

blessnet:  internet site with a religious purpose; as in, "When Mary couldn't make it to church on Sunday, she decided to log on to blessnet.

lardi:  having accumulated an excess of fat around one's middle; as in, "After years of fast food lunches, George had become a bit lardi.

stratche:  a fabric made with spandex that causes an irritating itch; as in, "Lola found her Pajama jeans were stratche."

zersabi:  the parent of the Long Ranger's friend; as in, "Zersabi is kemosabi's mother."


Remember, if you use a new word 3 times in a sentencem, it's in your vocabulary forever!


Since linky tools now has a charge, I'm not offering the link up to this blog any longer.  Sorry.

blessnet-- not far from reality!

Brian Miller said...

once you become lardi, i hope any spandex you think of wearing is made of stratche...

Bossy Betty said...

I'm going to tune into Blessnet very soon! First, though, I have to change out of these jeans. The label says they are made out of stratche. Hummmm....

Lazarus said...

You need to compile a dictionary of these!

EmptyNester said...

Oh I love those! WTH with linky? I'm afraid I'm way too familiar with lardi!

Eva Gallant said...

Outofmymind: glad you liked zersabi!

Runawaybride: No those are not real words; I make them up from the word verification notices.

Laz: I just might do that!
