Define it!

While traveling the blogosphere, I frequently use the “word verification” boxes when leaving a comment at some sites. I know some people complain about these, but I actually enjoy them.

I get a kick out of many of the words appearing in the box. I like to save them. They’re not meant to make any sense, but sometimes I find myself playing with possible definitions.

Slang Words

Given my age, I also often come across slang words I’ve never heard of. When this happens, I turn to the Urban Dictionary for help. Not only do I find a definition, but I also have fun reading these definitions. CAUTION: Some of the definitions can be crass, but many are really funny: Here’s an example:

Emo — Genre of softcore punk music that integrates unenthusiastic melodramatic 17 year olds who don’t smile, high pitched overwrought lyrics and inaudible guitar rifts with tight wool sweaters, tighter jeans, itchy scarfs (even in the summer), ripped chucks with favorite bands signature, black square rimmed glasses, and ebony greasy unwashed hair that is required to cover at least 3/5 ths of the face at an angle.

::sniff sniff:: “The Demise of the Siberian Traintracks of Our Rusty Forgotten Unblemished Love” sounds like it would make a great emo band name. ::cry::

Your challenge

Pick a word from of the list below and define it. You are welcome to choose more than one, if you want, but be sure to indicate which word(s) you used.

  1. Flump
  2. Eyelumes
  3. Barmarv
  4. Logdo
  5. Scaryp

Extra Credit

For extra credit, write your definition using the slightly sarcastic approach taken by the Urban Dictionary. Notice the details in the above description of “emo.” The word limit is 75 words or less.

Have fun with this:~)
