Imaginary words and meanings.

Post by Feather on Fri 29 Apr 2011 - 22:49

I thought this might be good fun. Make up a word that doesn't really exist. The next poster suggests its meaning.

eg-----benseration

Feather, I think this is a great idea you had for a new game, but might find it difficult since I don't know the origin/roots - latin, greek, etc, of words. I hope we are allowed to just use our imagination?

Anyway, after much thought I could only come up with:
malfarpated: man with a badly shaved head

New word: combuzzle

This word is used to describe it in the catalogue so that the experts can immediately identify it as belonging to this special class of art. Some enthusiasts have paid millions for such works. They are usually hung on doors.

Sounds like I could do with one of those.

percomilate

The new coffee machine installed in George Clooney's bedroom does not percolate, it percomilates. This merely means that as the coffee heats up all the caffeine is extracted, so that he can drink as much coffee as he wants while watching telly in bed without the risk of a sleepless night later.
Contrary to popular opinion, he mostly sleeps alone (off subject, sorry).
