New Word Wednesday #41

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:

chype:  (verb)  a snide or cutting remark which catches the recipient by surprise, because it is buried in friendly conversation; as in, "Kathy Griffin has been known to chype in a vicious manner."

folite:  (noun) a manuscript of minimal weight; as in, "George's short story was bound in a folite.

grang:  (noun)  a group of grandmothers who hang out together wearing red hats and purple dresses or workout suits; as in, "For a while I ran with a grang called The Red Hats."

humplu:  (verb) the mounting of one comic book character by another; as in, "Rumor has it that when they became Little Lulu and Tubby became teenagers, Tubby tried to humplu."

serapho:  (noun) an enemy of the highest order of angels; as in, "Lucifer was known to be a serapho."

Remember:  Use the word in a sentence three times and it's in your vocabulary forever!

So are we a grang of blogger friends, then? I think so!

River said...

Serapho sounds almost angelic; it's difficult to think of Lucifer as angelic; but they do say the Devil is a charmer...

Brian Miller said...

David Allen Waters said...

What a fab word and a fab meaning! LOL A group of grannies, perhaps a herd of grannies LOL. Reminds me of when I was a youth with the lads on Friday nights, a night known as 'grab a granny night!".

Chype - a very useful addition to the English Language. I must refrain from overusing chypes in my posts LOL

All our posts should be of folite length otherwise they may elicit chype style remarks like, "What a horrible load of rehubarb I have to wade through - has this fellow got verbal diarhorrea? (shit I can't spell it without a dictionary!) LOL

Humplu - I am at tyhe grateful age and although I would dearly love to humplu I havbe to be realistic and wade through the grangs instead LOL

Serapho - suits Lucifer and serapho to him.

Just love all these LOL

You're a stitch! I do believe we are a grang of blogger friends as said by an earlier granger blogger. Thank you for the smile that will be with me for awhile.

Kelley said...

Hahaha!! My favorite was definitely GRANG. I ran into a grang with purple & red the other day. They looked pretty menacing!

Eva Gallant said...

Terri: I think you are right; we are a blogger grang!

SheWrites: Hey, he's a guy...It was bound to happen.

Jess: Thanks for stopping by; hope you visit often!

Patricia: This makes me wonder about "grang bangers."

Or "serapho" could be a lady angel who peddled her wares among the clouds.
As in, "I don't want to spread any gossip, but that new angel, Candy, is real popular with all the dude angels. What a serapho!"

Sue said...

I'm part of a grang myself...
