It's the linguist in me...

Okay. After recent blog conversations between the members of FOTTSP, both here and on our own blogs, I've decided that we need a glossary.

I could spend the morning writing a post filled with hilarious definitions of words like frigintastic and phrases like sorry/you're welcome.

But frankly, I don't have that kind of time.

Or talent.

So let's make this collaborative.

What words/sayings do we need to define for our MASSIVE readership, so when they see these words on this blog or our own, we can point them to an informative and entertaining page here?

Don't forget to include word/phrase origin!

Here are some that I can think of:

"How suck is that?"

and of course

"monkey butt"

and

"pornographic cheese buttler"

Go for it, FOTTSPers (and readers)! Show your sarcasmelousness!

Well, all of the "tastic" "tacular" suffix words are, of course, craptastic.

I got an email from a website that posts top ten lists. We should start submitting top ten comments from here on a weekly basis.
Top Ten ListsBe sure to link back here or shamelessly self promote your own blog.

katdish said...

Okay. I messed up that link. But you're clever. I'm sure you'll figure it out.

Oh! We of course need to include all of the weird things in our sidebar. Awesome Cat and Ninja Squirrel deserve that much.

That reminded me of monkey butts, which reminded me of the time you went to the zoo, which reminded me of David Lettermans Top Ten Ways to Tell You Are at a Bad Zoo.


All animals are stuffed and mounted

It's nothing but photos of other zoos

Lost and found has a number of human limbs

Monkeys are forced to work as unpaid janitors

Every visitor gets free parasites

The animals are smoking

Ronny and the Goon never get around to taking the 12th caller (sorry, that's a sign you're at a bad morning zoo)

For an extra fee, you can pet the zookeepers

You ask where you can find a panda and they send you to the snack bar

Instead of octopus, they've got an octomom

Who is Frankly?

Marni said...

I think we should explain NtG's t-shirt launcher (specifically how he'll use it on the dearly departed FOTTSP-ers).

Ya know, now that I think of it, maybe we should just do a post explaining NtG in general...

Helen said...

@Marni, like there is any explanation possible except the Lord works in mysterious ways...

Steph @Red Clay Diaries said...

Leave it to this group to go off track by the fourth comment (HELEN).

Carol - Clearly, Frankly is Surely's cousin.

And the way things are going so far, I guess this will be list day, with definition day to follow...

Helen said...

@ Steph, like you didn't know there was a reason why I twitter under the name Helenatrandom...

Helen said...

@Steph, and it was Katdish "Look, Shiny" from HLAC that got off topic with the top ten list link on the FIRST comment, so don't go blamin' me...

Wendy said...

What are we talking about here?

Helen said...

@Wendy defining monkey butt and stuff like that for the uninitiated.

Wendy said...

Can we talk about bunnies with pancakes on their heads?

Steph @Red Clay Diaries said...

Wendy

Not only CAN we, but now we MUST.

Helen said...

OOOOOOOOOOOOOO! WHAT ABOUT THE SUPERMARKET SALSA?

Beth said...

Hey, I've got a Frankly! Oh wait, that's a Franky.

Something must be said about Snuggies. Or Slankets.

Wendy said...

And what about Sherri speaking in tongues?

Oh. Those are just typos?

Helen said...

Typing in Tongues might be a good phrase for FOTTSP.

Steph @Red Clay Diaries said...

Y'all are SO helpful. I now have what, a dozen words/phrases, and NO definitions.

Thank you so much for all your help. I'm gonna take my linguist geeky self into the living room to snuggle up with my dictionary and sulk.

Is the pornographic cheese buttler a combo between the porno cheese butler and a big heart monkey butt? Let's not be marrying words now. It took me 2 weeks to figure out what PCB stood for. I thought it was polychlorinated biphenyls and I didn't know you guys knew what that was.

Wendy said...

Candy - You mean a family of highly toxic chemical compounds consisting of two benzene rings in which chlorine takes the place of two or more hydrogen atoms: known to cause skin diseases and suspected of causing birth defects and cancer? Well that's just not funny at all.

Candace Jean July 16 said...

Not funny, but would certainly attract a geek following, of which we currently have plenty. No, the pornographic cheese butler is much less threatening. And probably not too geeky.

Wendy said...

I don't know about that. I hear that pornographic cheese butler is a gamer.

Steph @Red Clay Diaries said...

Candy, If you look at PCB's first appearance, he was indeed the Pornographic Cheese BUTTler. Which makes the monkey butt that came later even funnier.

Candace Jean July 16 said...

My bad. I actually think the monkey butt is more pornographic than the buttler. Butt, I'm a nurse, and really sick of looking at butts. Butt it's not my blog. So I'll butt out.

Wendy said...

I sure could go for some cheese right about now...
