Word Verification Balderdash (The Thursday Thing)

This is a weekly meme hosted by Sheila at One Persons Journey through a world of books where you take the verification characters you have to input when commenting on other blogs and make up definitions for them.

I was going to skip this week; as of this morning I had 4 on my list and it wasn't looking promising. Then I went on a commenting blitz and found I had a bit more to work with, so here goes:

emiater - the robotic invention that was created to shred or eat all of the Emmy nominations received by Susan Lucci when she did not actually win the award (the unsuccessful nominations were in the millions at the time of its creation)

iminabu - chant sung by the Bu tribe, found at the northern most tip of Nunavut, traditionally used during the ceremony of transition from childhood to adult. It is also used to describe the disease that has caused the loss of body parts as a result of the ceremony being performed naked in sub-arctic temperatures.

radicedy - a term used to describe the small groups of radicals that don't believe in working or contributing to society in any normal fashion but always seem to find the funding to travel first class to the next protest and are ready at a moments notice.

ungnsi - African tribal term to indicate the least desirable place in the village, that area where all outhouse drainage's converge

And there you have it! It seems my Balderdash's have all ended up in the ungnsi this week...maybe better luck next week ;-)
Let me know what you think and what you've come up with.

You know for just putting these together - they are really good and every one cracked me up! I think that is how it goes... all week long my word verifications brought up no fun definitions to mind... then Wed night I start finding a few and my ideas start to roll in...:)

Love iminabu... I am chanting it as I type. And poor Susan Luchi...the emiater sure explains a lot.

I am so glad you left a link to your site. I was trying to find you but was not having any luck. Now I am going to follow you too.

I love doing Balderdash. You have great words here! I love eminater, that explains why Susan Lucci never won all those years (here I just thought it was fixed.) lol.

ungnsi - very good! I got a chuckle on this one.

Thanks for stopping by & look forward to reading more blogs and comments with you.

Thanks everyone! I was so tired when I did it, I thought they were lame, lol.

And thank you to the Melissas for stopping by!

Krista said...

Awesome words! You are very good at this. I love ungnsi, too funny!

Laughing Stars said...

These are hilarious!! I ought to work some of these into conversation, as in, "I'd better get off this computer and clean the bathroom -- it's starting to smell like the ungnsi!"

La Coccinelle said...

LOL... Those are great!

Jackie said...

Thank you to everyone for the praise. Now, I'm feeling the pressure for the next batch....just hope they don't end up in the ungnsi!
