Visuals for this = awesome. But no grape riffles.
June 30, 2011
Watch out for those grape riffles. You can break a tooth.

Prolagus commented on the word fufluns
Are they ever?
February 3, 2011
The grape riffles shouldn't be too hard to get this time of year.
It would have to be dairy-, egg-, and cruelty-free (except for the part where we throw them at each other).
Does anybody have a recipe for the real Wordie fufluns? Something not too sweet if possible - something that would make a good breakfast for a certain challenge...
I'd like mine with grape riffles, please.

How about in the summer, when it sizzles?

Dontcry, do you like fufluns in the winter, when it drizzles?
December 11, 2010
*sings*I like fufluns in the fall...
December 10, 2010
*sings*I like fufluns in the springtime....
Ruz, your photos are visible here as well now!
The best thing would be to create a hashtag on Twitter to make #fufluns a trending topic.
Me too, Pro. Where do we place an order?*sips from Wordie crappuccino mug*
December 9, 2010
See Fufluns for photos.
I want a "got fufluns?" T-shirt for Wordnik.

The best thing would be to start manufacturing and mass marketing.
The best thing would be to start taking photos of cupcakes and tagging them fufluns on Flickr.
mollusque commented on the word fufluns
Pro, you've taken fufluns back into Wordnik through the Twitter sidedoor.
I thought they increased it.
Okay. How about: fufluns help reduce belly fat. Huh?
This page is on the first page of Google results for "fufluns". Isn't it great? Let's help it reach the top.

We must move some pronunciations here.
December 10, 2009
Ede deos tuos. Eat Fufluns!
June 5, 2009
I like the long-u sound better, but in my mind, I usually say it with a short u. On a side note, is Pro's Forvo prowess not the greatest thing since Fufluns? :)On another side note, I'm now wondering if we are angering the gods. *refuses to say more because she might accidentally break Pro's heart*
Click the Forvo button for my pronunciation. I assumed a Latin pronunciation (Fufluns "was adopted by the Romans", according to the Wikipedians).
June 4, 2009
How do you guys pronounce this? I'd been using short u for both since I first saw this, but it occurred to me the other day that the humour value is greatly increased with a long u in the first syllable. I don't know how to use IPA...
*eagerly awaits report*

rolig commented on the word fufluns
Fufluna is only 6 1/2 hours away from me! (Etruscan Fufluna is Italian Populonia.) I've got directions and I'll soon be on my way.
Fufluna must be where they make all the fufluns! *wonders how to get there, and if they sell at outlet prices*
I was! I wanted to toss fufluns at everybody around me!
Pro: Were you dying to post here about it? Don't you hate when you don't have a Wordie nearby with whom you can exchange knowing looks?C_b, I think you should bracket "Life imitates Wordie."
May 26, 2009
Ha! Life imitates Wordie!I guess that was an Etruscan town (or area) where the worship of Dionysus was centered...? How todally alsome.
May 23, 2009
Today, I went to a lecture on human population genetics and they were talking about the Etruscans, so the slideshow included a map of Etruria including Fufluna. I could barely contain myself.

bilby commented on the word fufluns
Oh no! We were warned about OPERATION BAKED GOODS in the training manuals! It's a silicageltrap! Woe!
Sets out a tempting array of eThpanish baked goods (without cream) and waits for super-desiccant properties to take effect: OPERATION BAKED GOODS.
Hey, when a bilby's life is in danger from gesticulatory bleating from lamb mimes, it doesn't matter whose side he's fighting on. We're all mammals, after all.*puts Red Cross flag away and lumbers back to the mimesweeper squad*
Pheww! No wonder they call them green bear-ets! Did you see the way she stepped in, fearlessly, risking being turned to lamb's fry in the heat of battle?! Baaad aaaass manoeuvre!
*hands bilby some Gas-X so he won't explode anymore*
OOOPS, wrong battle front! *steps on a lamb mime and explodes in gesticulatory bleating*

Oh, good grief. A battle on two fronts?
Watch the fur please! Indiscriminately flinging fufluns?! *calls out the Luftwaffle*
March 12, 2009
Yes. Yes, of course. Then it's true. That's what they're called.*tosses fuflun at chained_bear, another at Pro*
I think Wordie cupcakes are actually called fufluns. Aren't they?
I say we should call our madeupical Wordie cupcakes this.
I won't read it. I need a madeupical definition for this word.
Usage on Dionysus.
