Word verification Balderdash (The Thursday Thing)

This is the weekly meme where I encourage anyone who wishes to play along to take those crazy word balderdashverifications they have had over the past week and apply a fake definition to them (much like how you play the board game Balderdash).  This is all in fun and makes commenting on blogs a bit more interesting when the verification may just give you the best definition of the week!  See original post here

Even with the crazy busy week that I had… I think I came across some fun word verifications.  Here are mine:

vellmen: men who enjoy all things velcro.

nomed: when you have worked in your garden for so many long hours you feel as though you may be a permanent fixture there, much like a garden gnome.

magrabb: The incredible inner knowledge a mom has when her child is about to do something dangerous.  They do not even have to be looking at the child when the mothers arm juts out and grabs them before they step off the curb into the street, before they fall off the swing, fall down the steps, etc… it is such a quick movement you rarely see the actual grab until the child is back to safety.

prophy: Trophies that are only given out to professionals.  Very snooty.  Very coveted.

bugons: A bug (usually found when you are camping, or in some sort of woodsy environment) that latches on to your clothing and will not let go.  Sometimes they are mistaken for an actual part of your clothing.

I would love to see what you come up with!  To do your own, simply grab the picture meme and add it to your own post.  Link back to this post and leave a comment here letting my know you have and I will add your blog post to this one so people may see other participants.  Let the fun begin!  🙂

Here are the other players and their great words:

  1. You are so funny! I get the funniest words on your site here, but I forget to write them down. I guess I’d better start keeping a list!


  2. I’m not participating, but I do love reading yours!

  3. Great words for this week! I use the magrabb all the time and I’m assuming bugons are similar to “klingons” though a little less gross?

    I’ve meme’d over at: This Girl’s Ever Expanding Library

  4. We have always enjoyed playing Balderdash. Love yours this week.

  5. Good use for word verifications. I usually just throw mine away. I’ll start keeping them now. Have you contacted Webster’s yet?

    • I have not contacted Webster…LOL… however you did give me an idea that maybe I capture all of these that all of us book bloggers enter for a year ant alphabetize them and send copies to the participants so we can all laugh for years to come. 🙂

  6. Another great week! I knew those nasty Bugons had a name! And my mother will be pleased to learn that her special Mom skills have a name: Magrabb.

    Here’s mine:


  7. You have an award waiting for you on my blog, check it out! 🙂

  8. Great fun. My favourite so far is still ‘turnmon’ by Alexia.

  9. These are too funny! I think everyone who plays this game is very clever…LOL! All the ones I’ve seen today have been LOL funny! Great words!

  10. I thought I’d join in. Mine is HERE

    This was fun!!!

  11. I finally remembered one this week: pyroses. Roses on fire.

  12. This was my first week to participate…I had a lot of words!!! I think my answers are borderline stupid but it’s neat to see what others write.


  13. WOW!! These are really great definitions!! I love them all.

    I did just get my words up here this evening if you would like to stop by…

  14. Hi, thanks for visiting me over at Pen And Paper. Vellmen? Does that mean there must be Vellwomen out there as well? If so, I could well be one – I love the sound of wripping velcro almost as much, but not quite, as the sound of popping bubblewrap. Weird? Perhaps!

  15. Each show is different and it really depends on whos booking it
    and for the bigger shows with celebrities and bands they need
    a lot of lead-time. It is an industry norm that you
    offer a hotel room for the comedian at the same time.
    He hosted Comedy Central’s’The Man Show’ as well
    as the ubiquitous pseudo-porn for the sexually crippled, ‘Girls
    Gone Wild’, both solely and shamelessly for financial gain.

  16. Mixing ink stick floating inside ink surface because of the need,
    generally hollow, and when sealing leaks, solvent ink stick to
    the mix inside, will sink, decrease of stirring, so each side
    with the seal will probably be corrosion resistant.
    Apologies, so how hard and sharp edged could be the plastic utilized on
    the tops of the front doors of Lancer models without it option.
    If you’re transferring or simply storing data using
    computers, flash drives are essentially the most convenient storage
    devices that you can use.
