Say What #2

Back in July I ran the initial post in what I think is going to be a series. Today installment #2. Over at Humor Bloggers Dot Com, where they change the style and format more often than her mean uncle moves the furniture around at Helen Keller's place, there's a forum thread called The Humpty Dumpty Dictionary Challenge where members contribute words they've found from a blog's word verification box along with their own definitions.

Here are some of my recent contributions...

When you throw little Jr into the pool to teach him to swim you better hope he's:

The politically correct term for bus boy!

The perfect word verification for HumorBloggersDotCom

Few people know that Sting wrote the first draft of So Lonely in the loo. Uh-huh, yep. And when he changed the lyric to "lonely" he had a hit on his hands...


Well, someone told me yesterday
That when you throw your love away
You act as if you just don't care
You look as if you're going somewhere
But I just can't convince myself
I couldn't live with no one else
And I can only play that part
And sit and nurse my broken heart, so looly
So looly, so looly, so looly
So looly, so looly, so looly
So looly, so looly, so looly
So looly, so looly


Now you see why this series only runs periodically.

Great series! Sting in the loo is now burned into my brain.

Today's word for me is nongle... where people go when Google is down.
nonamedufus said…
Quirks: Yeah, some of them are pretty odd indeed.

moooooog: We've got "ranie" here today, too. (Didn't Grace Kelly marry Prince Ranie?)

CatLady: Haha, good one!

I've seen those and wanted to ask the burning question, are those legitimate. Not as in kids, but as in actual word verification thingys? They're cool either way...

Megan: I aim to please!

Don: Hey this is a humour blog. Everything's real. Yeah, I right clicked and saved each "captcha" to my pic file. Cool, huh?

Woke up in my clothes again this morning. Don't know exactly where I am. I should heed my doctor's warning. He does the best with me he can.

Great post! My word verification is 'dinsident.' Meaning: A dyslexic conscientious objector, ofcourse.

I love these word verifications. They are so weird. I always forget to save them. Then when I do I can't figure out a meaning for them. This one is suledr
nonamedufus said…
Donna: Glad you enjoyed it. Thanks for stoppin' in.

Skip: lmao

DK: Speaking of commicl, your pretty funny yourself.

Canadu: Haha, good one. See, everyone can play. Thanks for stopping by.

ettarose: You'd think there's be lots of medical staff at the clinic but he was the "suledr" there!
Hey, I was going to write a post about these captcha words! Stop reading my mind while I'm sleeping and stealing my ideas, you ingrant. Ingrant--that's my captcha word for this comment. I think it's a combination of ingrate and rant. Weird, huh? Another nice post, NoName.

Tales From The Supermarket

Bob and Brenda worked in the supermarket. They weren't check-out clerks. And they weren't stock-boys. Brenda sure wasn't. And they weren't employees who worked in the fish section or the deli. No. They were on the shelves.

They hadn't been on the shelves very long but in that short time they'd developed a considerably close friendship.

The chatted all day when the store was busy and at night when the store was closed. They talked about everything. The talked about what raw products they came from. The talked about their manufacturing processes. And they talked about the long routes in semi-trailers that brought them to this store.

Oddly enough the one thing they never made clear to one another was just what product each of them was.

One day when Brenda was commenting on their friendship she told Bob she was grateful for their amity. "Are you Tea?" said Bob, pekoe-ing her way. "I thought I was Tea". You're coffee!"

My Back Pages - November

I read five books last month bringing my year to date total to 61, well past the 50 I estimated at the beginning of the year. And I've yet to get through December.

The month started out with The Nix, the debut novel by Nathan Hill which has been receiving a lot off positive reviews. In it Hill flips back and fourth from the 1968 Chicago protests and 2011 in a desperate search for the truth behind why his mother abandoned him at an early age. In between Hill takes on politics, the media and addiction as well as other aspects of society. It's a well-spun tale and I quite enjoyed reading it.

Next up was the auto-biographical I Am Brian Wilson of Beach Boys fame. This was somewhat of a scattered affair but an interesting read nonetheless. Wilson - or his ghostwriter - however is no Hemingway.

Then it was on to one of my favourite authors, Ian Rankin and his latest tale of now retired Inspector John Rebus, Rather Be The Devil. I never tire of these stories and this is the 21st in …
