New Word Wednesday #24

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 several 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:

brollyho:  (noun) a prostitute who carries an umbrella; as in, "John was a little put off by the brollyho, as he was worried where she might put her umbrella,"

degul:  (verb) and activity designed to clear the beach of seagulls; as in, "Dan used a string of firecrackers to degul the beach.

hootess:  (noun)  a sang term used to refer to a female owl; as in, "The hootess was determined to protect her babies and began dive-bombing the cat."

palatere:  (noun)  a person who has extra sensitive taste buds and is employed by a winery or a restaurant as a taste tester; as in, "At a very young age William discovered his special skill and has long had a successful career as a palatere."

unprom:  (noun)  the occasion where a couple of teens cannot attend the prom because of lack of funds, but go straight to having  sex, as in, "Carla wasn't sure if Todd was just cheap or really broke when he told her of he wanted them to have an unprom."
Remember, use the word three times in a sentence and it's in your vocabulary forever!

Cute ones! Loved the brollyho. But I always go for the naughty. LOL

River said...

I don't think any of these will make it into my vocabulary. Maybe the degul, but not until summer.

Brian Miller said...

hehe just think of how much money you save going to unprom

Gail said...

These are wonderful. I have always been fascinated by the word Verifications and the way, sometimes, they magically fit with the comment.

Bossy Betty said...

One question: Do you have to dress up for the Unprom?

rosaria said...

Palatere I will definitely appropriate.

Kristy said...

I will need Dan around to degul the beach when I'm on vacay next week!

Eva Gallant said...

Terri: Why am I not surprised? lol

Rosaria: You have my permission!

Unknown Mami said...

Okay, brollyho might be my all time favorite. Well done!

Mary at Deep South Dish said...

I often need to degul the beach because tourists insist on feeding them!
