New Word Wednesday #25

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:
 
chromer:  (noun)  a person who uses Google Chrome as their web browser; as in, "Hank was delighted to find that as a chromer, he now had enhanced his computer's speed."
 
clueno:  (adjective)  being oblivious to or without any knowledge of; as in, "Most of the people Jay Leno interviews on his show's Jaywalker segment are cluenos."
 
entsa:  (noun) a group which is opposite of Mensa; as in, "Sarah is so clueno, she definitely is a charter member of Entsa."
 
otogynci:  (noun) a branch of medicine that specializes in diseases of the ear and the vagina; as in, "When Angela develped an ear ache along with a crotch itch, she made an appointment with an otogynci."
 
proweedi:  (noun or adjective)  a political group promoting the legalization of marijuana; as in, "Thanks to the proweedi, there are a few states that allow medical use of marijuana."
 
Remember, use a word three times in a sentence and it's in your vocabulary forever!

Proweedi - LOL - is that a group put together by Apple people that named the iPad and iPhone except they put the i at the end. LOL

rosaria said...

O.k. I'll admit to just being a member of one of these.

Otogynci sounds weird, but useful! Much better than the gyno for octopi, which is what I thought after reading it wrong - octogynci!

*whew*

Eva Gallant said...

Glenn: Yes, I make them up...it's how my weird mind works!

C: You could be right; I never thought of that!

Rosaria: You're a chromer?

SisterMH: Ewwwww---a gyni for octopi! Not a fun job! lol

Mary at Deep South Dish said...

Proweedi - goodness you are just brilliant with these!! I guess you could say I'm a chromer who was clueno about all the commenting problems peeps were having recently. Don't you just love that Jay Walking segment? Hilarious!!

Beth Zimmerman said...

I'm a Chromer! :) Hilarious post! I'm always glad to find fellow bloggers on this side of 50! :)

"Proweedi" I can just see the American flag changing to red, white and green :-)
Very funny, jj

Reeni said...

I love it! You should self-publish a book of these when you get enough. They are so funny and so fitting. You're gifted.

The Frisky Virgin said...

Proweedi-that should be the official slogan for those groups.

Loved clueno! lol

Eva Gallant said...

Frisky: clueno was one of my favorites!
