  • By Campbells, but Prego. There are web references to pizza places that sell a labor-inducing pizza called the Preggo (both spellings represented).

  • Lisp-inducing.

  • I don't know. The description of the list might pose a more convincing argument if the list itself had more face validity. C'mon, entries like: that's hot, i heart, hella, uber, hubby, pics, teehee, hottie, bf, gf, first post? A subculture clearly spawned in hell. Also, the lister's use of smiley faces, lol's, and terms such as "newbies" in his own posts makes him seem a less credible critic.

  • It's the first entry on that list of demon-spewed words, Kawaii Headdesk. This alone almost rehabilitates it in spite of its cloying perkiness.

  • Boy, those French: they have a different word for everything! - Steve Martin

  • I think it was me, I forgot to add the ;-), but it's your fault for starting it. :-)

  • This has to be a rhetorical question. If not, be prepared to answer a lot more of them (see list on which it appears).

  • "What, no pictures?" - Careful. The cake shop lady might just whip something up.

  • Electronic music used pure sounds, completely calibrated. You had to think digitally, as it were, in a way that allowed you to extend serial ideas into other parameters through technology. - Luc Ferrari (One Frenchman who didn't get the memo I guess)

  • It would be if you had kids who couldn't pick up drinking straw tricks on their own.

  • How about a too-cute wordoff between Twitter and Wordie?

  • Next time, when she asks what kind of cake you would like to order, don't say "Surprise me".

  • Thanks for the visuals...instantaneous and I fear permanent...I'll have the toast.

  • Where is the source of this objectionable stand-alone phrase? Whenever I have seen it, it is further modified by a word such as local, organic, etc.

    June 13, 2009

  • What I Like About You

    June 12, 2009

  • Me neither, but it looks like the tagger is also correct...numerous web references to plants/trees with flowers or fruit that grow from the side of a stem, branch, or trunk.

  • Or the result of a "suspicious (read suspect) analysis"

    June 8, 2009

  • I need to be asperged. (Note to self: Don't post late at night)

    June 8, 2009

  • To asperse?...with an asperges or an aspergillium? I know nothing about it...just a googling smartass.

    Even if it is a word, I think it's a little too close to asperger to be truly pretty.

  • Obviously harmless...the bad comedy is Symantec's characterization of the analysis they intend to perform.

    June 7, 2009

  • Def: Newbie spooked off wordie at first post.

    June 7, 2009

  • This "word" triggers my Norton Internet Security which automatically submits the site to Symantec with the following notation:

    URL"http://wordie.org/words/ ..- - - . - ...20 - -"was submitted for further suspicious analysis.

    The page hasn't been blocked yet...I wonder if the analysis really is suspicious.

  • When used in a technical sense it is also a symptom of certain psychiatric and neurological disorders.

  • From the department of redundancy department

  • Do I wish it was on its way out? Definitely. Do I think people are starting to use greater variety in their words of assent? Not really. Do I wish people would stop interviewing themselves? Abso-frickin-lutely. (Actually, I think the self-interview tic may be waning.)

  • I didn't expect this to pop up on the recent word list on the home page. Just added it as my least favorite word. Not a bad word in itself, but it has become a viral replacement for all other words of agreement.

  • 23 skiddoo

    May 7, 2009

  • As a "Pretty dots all in a row" entry...a little creative license taken here.

    May 7, 2009

  • I believe it is accipitary.

  • What does "23" mean? As in "23 squidoo!"

  • "23 squidoo" is a silly, squiddy allusion to 23 skiddoo, which was a silly thing people used to say in the 1920s and became an emblem of the decade, as groovy did for the 1960s. I sort of understand the "skiddoo" part here (related maybe to skip and almost certainly to skedaddle), but I have no idea why the number 23 became attached to it.
