Nephelococcygia You Say? Pfft Easy Peasy At My Bay!

Do you think you can stump the cat at his rink? Well you can try but the cat will just poke you, figuratively, in the eye. Susan dared the cat to give the above a go. So away with it at my show.

Nephelococcygia is at play.
Are you saying what they umm hay?
This is not the A to Z,
Where we go on a weird word spree.

Hey, don`t blame me.
Blame her sea.
Know what nephelococcygia is?
Let's get on to some nephelococcygia biz.

There I see a horse.
That thing has no remorse.
It is eating Brian's mohawk.
That will make him gawk.

Look there is a dog,
It's chewing on a brown log.
Or I guess it would be white.
That is still quite the sight.

Catch my nephelococcygia trail?
Or are you ready to hit the third rail?
I suppose you'd go near them indeed,
If that were to take seed.

Look it a bird!
Oh don't be absurd.
Nope, it isn't a plane.
It is a great big train.

It even carries Tom Hanks.
It has a dragon in its ranks.
That is rather weird I'd say.
Catch on yet at your bay?

The things flames are white.
They are rather bright.
Look here comes state puff.
That is quite a bit of fluff.

And there is a boat with a cat on top.
That sure isn't a flop.
Setting sail in the sky,
With whatever takes the eye.

Now you must know,
With my rhyming flow,
What nephelococcygia is?
No? Geez next time I'll make a pop quiz.

Nephelococcygia is what you see when you look up. Like a cat or a dragon or a pup. Faces and shapes and stuff in the clouds. I guess big words need to be used to draw crowds? Now my nephelococcygia has come to pass. Damn, I'm such a good little rhyming ass.

Fill your rummer, get drunk all summer.

  1. Nephelococcygia is not in the dictionary
    Funny enough but one might like to see
    Difficult words
    Just for nerds
    To astound others and make them worry

  6. look up in a tree to see what stirred
    sometimes you find an amazing bird
    now, cloud watching is fun for me
    so many great images I can see
    flying on a dragon might be fun to do
    a white one for me, a black one for you
    two light hearted fools soaring high
    looking at sun up above in the sky

    yes, I made a blunder, blame it on thunder..haha
    more like lack of sleep as I tried counting sheep

  18. Well I am not going to try and spell that word. Yikes. And much less, figure out what it means. Yikes again. But I guess it means the shapes of clouds and that is fun to look at the shapes up there in the sky. Have a super day Pat.

  20. That word sounds so much dirtier than it really is. Or maybe that's just me. All I ever see when I look up is my ceiling. Maybe that's a sign that I should leave my house every once in a while...

  25. I thought it meant being obsessed with the dead
    And by obsessed, I mean getting them into bed.
    But that's necrophilia not nepelococcygia.
