    Thyko--nymphonia: A rare but documented personality disorder that is currently under review by the APA. A Thyko-nymphomaniac is one who exhibits deviant sexual behavior involving brass telescopes, astronomical charts and prosthetic noses. The actual practice is so revolting that it cannot be described in polite discourse and I must say, I am disgusted and surprised that Mr. Brazil could be comfortable asking for a definition. What kind of riff-raff plays with words of this nature?

    *Agreed. I had a long, harshly-worded discourse with Mr. Brazil that went something like this - ‘Huh?’ He assured me that his definition was much tamer, almost innocuous. Only someone’s mind that trawls the nether regions of the city (gutters and sewers) would lower oneself into that lake of debauchery.*

    Riffmoolay – A seven course meal with a 15 minute break between each course in which the person or persons who have failed to show up are denigrated.

    Flatormakinany: A form of Irish step dancing in which cuts of mutton are stomped upon and flattened for that most famous of Irish delicacies, Mutton Parmesan, which is then prepared live on-stage by a clog-dancing chef while the original dancers continue the steps, doing their best not to fall down due to the copious amounts of mutton fat now smeared all over the floor. A popular dinner theatre act in Dublin and Cork; Michael Flatley wanted to include it in Riverdance but was dissuaded from doing so by a vegetarian cast member.

    Who among us had not been sphinclypt? And of course we are all familiar with the peculiar motions of the sphinclypt.


    Sphinclept, or, for the brave of heart, sphinctoclampsia

    Not sure if Marissa got cheated on her word, but ... maybe I should leave a new word to restart. *Gives the Jenny a kick to get it started again.*

    Snazkanterfray: A gait only seen in one breed of horse, the Carinthian Eighth Horse (a smaller breed derived from the Hungarian Quarter Horse) in which the front feet are lifted on alternate steps and waved in the air in a "jazzenhoofen" motion. The Carinthian Eighth Horse is useless for transportation, even of a recreational nature, but they make great circus ponies.
