word of the week #10

9:03 pm

Platypus– a small, aquatic, egg-laying monotreme, Ornithorhynchus anatinus, of Australia and Tasmania, having webbed feet, a tail like that of a beaver, a sensitive bill resembling that of a duck, and, in adult males, venom-injecting spurs on the ankles of the hind limbs, used primarily for fighting with other males during the breeding season.


Example- i have a pet platypus!!

    We used to joke around that my friend Jess was pregnant with a platypus. I don’t really remember how that arose, but it was really funny.

    Suggestions for next week–you get to look them up:


    Words that aren’t real, but are still really fun:

    sporkafijiminin– the act of mining for sporks in the Fiji islands
    Canoodling– a kind of touchy-feely cuddling
    Scunoodling– underwater canoodling
    lesbotronic– angry, militant, and man-hating (for the record, I don’t hate lesbians, I just think this is a hilarious word)
    snappity-snap-picture-phone– the act of whipping out your cell phone to get a picture

    Words that were accidentally created by misspeaking (or by people who don’t actually speak English), and always make me smile:

    Yeah… It’s pronounced antra-tomato. My old boss’s mom said it instead of entrepreneur because she was from Germany, and had trouble with English. She was a crazy little woman, but she was hilarious.
