    Define this weird word:

    This is basically a fun definition game that I found on another writers forum website (one that's not as good as AW in my humble opinion). You start with a weird word and give it your own definition. The more creative the better.

    Example:

    Gruntmoppy

    Definition: The act of spontaneously grunting while mopping.

    Who wants to take on this one? : Bornation

    I would rather use antipiessmatic but bornation?

    definition: the act of rebirthing what is already aborted.

    So I suppose someone might try antipiessmatic but it is kinda obvioso

    Antipiessmatic

    To be antiepiessmatic is to adhere to the belief that automation is evil and must be destroyed; in particular mass-produced baked goods, and specifically pies.

    An unacceptably informal way to refer to feline-like behaviour.

    mulletine

    from "mool" --the sumerian for shoe and incidentally the oldest noun in the english language. "mulletine" is of course a type of shoe akin to the sumerian ox-hide slipper but with a persian influence that includes embroidery on the vamp and upper. they were much in style in victorian england but have since gone out of style. a patent leather pair of inferior quality is to be found on display in the museum home of the late charles lutwitdge dodgson. it is believed that dodgson wore this pair while daydreaming his naughty dreams--s6

    lo siento, sr. woof

    my cabeza up my cola as usual. i thought you were dealing out the words.

    pretrienship? well, to the neophyte this might seem a difficult word, but anyone with a passing knowledge of the art of papyrus paper making would know that pre- trienship is merely the first, or apprentice, stage in the training of a trien--that is a master papyrus paster--the grand Poo Bah of papillote. only a trien is allowed to wear the purple platypus pendant that pertains to the perfect parallel pasting of the plucked, parched, and painstakingly prepared palmates of the porous Cyperus papyrus. (i am so full of it that my eyes should be brown. but they are AZUUUL)

    Ptermylg--notice that this is a proper noun.

    Ptemylg = It is the leader of the "gray" species of aliens. They come from the planet Ptemy located just outside our galaxy. The P is silent as in pneumonia and it is pronounced Tem-y. The lg represents Large.

    music major that you are

    you should be aware of this rare but lethal condition that takes 4 or 5 of the world's finest oboe players every year. it is a mysterious killer of promising young music nerds. no one has been able to find a unifying factor in the victims, other than the fact that all were oboists and were asphyxiated in front of a computer screen displaying porn. in fact two of the deaths involved the infamous pornographic leggo site. and leggos were found in the body orifices of no less than six victims. wish i remembered how to spell this wretched word but i clicked off before i wrote the damn thing down--s6

    heptryd

    This was a medieval practice since outlawed because it was extremely dangerous. It involved 7 people (heptrydists) - normally 4 women and 3 men - and they would make a human pyramid (heptrydom) in the nude.

    It was usual for a woman to be at the top of the pyramid and sometimes she would overbalance and fall with legs splayed onto the head of a poor lad beneath her.

    Then a heptrydoctomy would need to be performed.

    omnifarction

    Omnifarction is a sub-category of fiction that is far-fetched, overly contrived and badly written. This genre of writing, despite its mediocre quality, is highly popular and once a year the George W. Dorkus prize is awarded to a writer of omnifarction, who in the judgement of the awards committee "has excelled in producing a remarkably bad work of fiction and contributed to raising the standards of writing to a new low".

    It is a term used for old italian men's voices. Much like Marlon Brando in the God Father.
