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 over 250 of these new creations for your enjoyment; feel free to assimilate your favorites into your everyday conversation. You friends and co-workers will be envious!
addish: (adjective) a person whose strengths lean more to mathematics than toward music; as in, "Samantha can't carry a tune, but she is addish and can calculate a 17% tip on her tab in a second!"
adepsi: (adjective) being able to accept any cola substitute for Pepsi; as in, "Tom was not fussy about his soft drinks because he was adepsi."
adraver: (noun) the person in an advertising agency whose job it is to select the best ads; as in, "Helene was the agency's designated adraver because she had an uncanny ability to pick winning print or video product pitches."
backbipl: noun) a type of acne on a person's back that resembles a nipple; as in, "Henry had a backbipl which made him the butt of jokes in the boys' locker room."
balligiz: (noun) an ornamental tie worn around the male's scrotum as a symbol of fertility by some otherwise naked jungle tribesmen; as in, "Young Kubota was pleased with his bright green balligiz and wore it proudly as a symbol of his manhood."
bariat: (noun) a rope with a loop in it intended for use by bartenders to lasso imbibers who attempt to leave without paying their tab; as in, "Phil kept his bariat close at hand and did not hesitate to use it when Bruno tried to sneak off and stick him with the bill."
