  • I agree with John, for his reasons in addition to its abuse by celeb tabloid rags, which together tarnish whatever shaky need to exist it might have had.

  • I ran across it in a session of D&D (*nerd alert*) when a DM used a lesser geas on a player. I had to ask him what the hell he was talking about; it didn't sound (or look) like a real word.

  • definitely nasty. in fact, most fauxreos are so truly awful it's as if they exist only to highlight how much better the real ones are. maybe it's all just a network of front companies under the puppet hand of nabisco.

  • different from goatsesque, goatsean images are those whose nature is intentionally obscured by an individual (through mislabeling of the file or otherwise) to surprise and disgust another. i.e., tubgirl.

  • graphic designs that evoke, purposely or accidentally, the infamous goatse image. a portmanteau of goatse and grotesque.

  • fake oreos of the kind often found under a store brand in supermarkets. usually terrible.

  • An actual term describing a type of steel, or used when referring to such steel as a synecdoche. See: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wootz_steel

  • You could probably put snikt on this list -- that'd be the noise of Wolverine's claws popping in or out. And as far as fandom terms, no list is complete without hoyay.

  • Probably a descriptor that can be attached to most wordies.

  • I believe this is a misspelling of transcendent.

  • Is this an actual word? Or just a misspelling of quandary?

  • I can't see this word and not think of the default Adobe font.

  • Indeed. Can anyone encounter the larch *without* thinking Monty Python?

    December 17, 2006

  • Or perhaps the classic memento mori?

  • Delightful! I tend to use words, forget them as easily and with as little pain as I remembered them. However, the idea of hoarding words is strange to me and somewhat...exotic? I love your wordlists, and will enjoy looking at them further!

  • Hello Squareintheteeth,

    I am new to this site, and pleasantly bewildered.

    I was struck by the appearance of "cudgel" (pun intended, unforturantely) because I was thinking about that word just a day or so ago. It is a word my mother frequently used, always in the context of trying to recall something, as in: "I cudgeled my brain, but I just could not remember. . ."

    Now that I am past 50, I cudgel my brain frequently, often to no avail but I have more empathy for my late mother on this problem than I did when I was a girl!
