5. Or 8 if I could have had multiple choice! 🙂 🙂
4, but number 16 could also be called a hangover.
My favorite retro singing group back in the day was Sha Vocables.
I thought ‘vagitus’ was when your whoo-hah was sick
& I’m pretty sure ‘interrobang’ means something different down at the Police Station
Hmm, Then what do they call the hair on one’s tongue?
asking for a friend 🤡🤔😱🤦♂️
Collectively they are called weirdophonics!
Oh, ok, thanks Joe6pak. 👍
me yelling at my wife:
it’s not what you thought honey, joe said it’s just pubes, you’ll be fine.
I only knew two 6 and 18!
Ten for me, but then I’m an odd word freak.
Their definition of “wamble” as “rumbling of stomach” is wrong. Instead, it means “a rolling or uneasiness in the stomach; a feeling of nausea.”
The correct term for rumbling in the stomach or bowels borborygm or borborygmus.
See?! (← note the interrobang) I am an odd word freak!
These comment threads just stay interrobanging… ?!
Never change people. /Salute
Doesn’t Crapulence actually occur two to four hours after you make a pig out of yourself?
English is weird even for native speakers.
I’ll never forget “aglet” after watching this show with my son: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VwizJNvl62U
I could do this on Facebook
1. And after reading this, also 1.
21. biden* voters are called Necrophiliaballots
Brandon failed all 21
I call the condition of finding it hard to get out of bed in the morning “normal.”
I knew 10. I still think an aglet should be defined as the offspring of a Texas A&M grad.
I did 25 posts today, Banjo, and not done yet.
only tines of a fork, though I’ve heard the name of ends of shoestrings before
And that doesn’t include chasing down spam, and all the various sundries that go along with running this website.
Thanks for the compliment.
Zero. I’m dumb as a box of rocks though, so…..
Fuck those guys. No loyal reader here bites on that. He should move over to Face Book. That’s where he belongs.
I got 1.
Canadian Public Education System, Eh.
Tines on a Fork
I didn’t know ANY of them.
But I do know that Uranus looks red and blotchy this time of year.
Just one: tines.
But I did learn that I suffer from chronic dysania.
Five. Tines is very common and aglet is a standard crossword solve.
@Uncle Al – a word for you. It was a ‘Word-A-Day’ calendar and I have not forgotten. It seemed to rate so well to my gubbermint job: stercoraceous
‘relate’ not rate
I thought 19 was a Biden speech.
I had 7 that I knew.
Looks like I have to update my brain bank on obscure, somewhat useless knowledge.
Some day I am going to be great at conversation starting at parties.
Aglet and tine – that’s it.
Thanks for the fun post, Mr. Hat!
izlamo delenda est …
I knew 6, but number 14 is wrong: it is called the philtrum. The columella nasi is the fleshy extension of the septum inside your nose. Just sayin’
So, is one with a unibrow glabellaless?
16 is wrong.
It’s called “retired”.
I got two of these but I used to do a lot better with the reader’s digest word quizzes.
Expodental … uhh .. exposen … uhhh ….. expsedixey … uhh …. fkn words! Y’no …… a buncha fkkkne words!
@Eugenia — Stercoraceous is a very handy word these days!
BTW, stercorean has come to have largely the same meaning and is easier to use in haiku. (-:
@BFH — Thanks for this article, and thanks to thread contributors! This has been especially enjoyable and entertaining.
#19. Also defined as: The experience that follows eating Taco Bell.
Yeah I didn’t know any of these. I might have to see if i can find this “interrobang” somewhere online though.
Technically, this “?!” is not an interrobang. And interrobang is a single character created by combining those two characters, and most fonts have it: “‽”.
And for Spanish writers, you have to put an upside-down interrobang (called a “gnaborretni” – I’m not kidding) at the beginning of the sentence.
“So, is one with a unibrow glabellaless?”
I’m fairly sure the word for that is “kahlodious.”
