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

jfk commented on the list kawaii-headdesk
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.
jfk commented on the word preggers
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.

I think it was me, I forgot to add the ;-), but it's your fault for starting it. :-)
jfk commented on the word political capital
This has to be a rhetorical question. If not, be prepared to answer a lot more of them (see list on which it appears).

jfk commented on the word urodynamics
"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.

Term of endearment.
jfk commented on the word nether petals
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.

jfk commented on the word food advocate
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.

jfk commented on the word cauliferous
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"
jfk commented on the word asperge
I need to be asperged. (Note to self: Don't post late at night)
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.
jfk commented on the word eurassia adamson
Def: Newbie spooked off wordie at first post.
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.

The brilliance of the creation has yet to be appreciated. (A definition might help)

jfk commented on the word imperturbable disposition
From the department of redundancy department
jfk commented on the word absolutely (as a verbal tic to emphatically agree with what was just said)
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.)
May 9, 2009
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.

rolig commented on the user jfk
"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.
