New Word Wednesday #54

We’ve all encountered them—those pesky word verifications intended to keep spammers off websites.   After three years of blogging and encountering these barriers on a daily basis, it occurred to me that great new word possibilities were being wasted.  Why, every day I would type strange letter combinations, hit “enter,” and the letters would disappear, never to be seen again!

I decided that it was time to document these strange letter combinations and assign a definition to them, thereby creating some wonderful new words for our vocabularies.  Following are  5 of these new creations for your enjoyment; feel free to assimilate your favorites into your everyday conversation.  Your friends and co-workers will be envious!


Today's words:

carboli:  (noun)  dieter's term for ravioli; as in, "Margaret was on a low carb diet and was adamant about avoiding her favorite Italian dish, which she called carobili, to remind herself why she didn't want to eat any.

dedbot:  (noun)  a robot which has become obsolete due to technological advances; as in, "The students were excited that their professor had been able to obtain ad dedbot from the local car manufacturing facility for study in their class.

frati:  (adjective)  term used to describe female high school students who try get into college fraternity parties; as in, "Penny and Emma had a reputation of being frati, and could be found most weekends drinking and smoking weed with frat boys on the university campus."

multibra:  (noun) an undergarment specifically designed for a woman with more than two breasts; as in, due to a birth defect, Sylvia had to wear a multibra when she became an adult, although it did enhance her popularity in the singles bars."

squela:  (noun) derogatory name given to a gang member who becomes a police informant; as in, "Derrick was not aware that his life was in danger because he was known to be a squela."

Remember, use a word three times in a sentence, and it's in your vocabulary forever!

Having to enter those spam codes really annoys me and I often don't comment because of the extra hassle.

I hate to be a squela, but I knew a few frati girls myself. None of them, however, used a multibra.
