New Word Wednesday #27

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:

curshi:  (adjective) an aversion to writing in cursive; as in, "Mrs. Smith's 5th grad class was so accustomed to communicating by texting on their cell phones, and using their computers, that when instructed to take a pen to paper, she found they were curshi."

fiselet:  (noun)  the excess foam which rises over the top and drips down the side of the glass when a beer or carbonated beverage is poured; as in, "Never one to be wasteful, Grandma Gertie was known to lick the fiselet of the side of her beer glass and the table, especially after her third."

thize:  (noun) thighs of enormous size, often called "thunder thize;" as in, "Margaret had great difficulty finding jeans to fit her thunder thize."

tinasta:   (noun)  a pantry game involving the collecting and piling of canned goods in decreasing sizes until no cans (tins) are left on the shelves.;  as in, "Aunt Martha was the family tinasta champion, holding the record for speed and accuracy in canned goods piling."

whorses:  (noun)  promiscuous mares who mate indiscriminately with any just any stallion; as in, "Although Parker had plans to breed his thoroughbred mares with studs with winning bloodlines, the whorses had ideas of their own!"

Honest to Pete, you'd be the consummate party guest! You really are hilarious!

"fiselet" was probably my favorite, but I just love the whole thought process and format of this meme every week!

So funny! And a good way to make use of word verification!

Life@Cee said...

Thoroughly enjoyed your post. It had me LOL'ing which doesn't necessarily make me cursavi (or whatever the word was). I will give you fuel for new words if you visit my blog because I can't find where to turn word verification off.

LMAO Whorses gave me a chuckle, but I could really relate to the Thize. I have two of those. It ain't pretty.

The Frisky Virgin said...

Whorses, thize, and curshi darn near made me spew water across the room! I love these posts!

Eva Gallant said...

Terri: You are not the only one with thize!

Frisky: Hope you didn't give anyone an unwanted bath!

Pat said...

I heard that if you stick your finger in your glass, you can prevent fiselet from happening. But if you LIKE liking fiselet from the glass or table, well, then, by all means let loose!

Another great week!

And of course, "whorses" is just the slang term for "Trotstitutes."
