A Little Wordy Today At My Bay!

Ever see some fun words at your sea that make you think the user is as crazy as can be? There are quite a few around it would seem. Nope, none of these are a bad, weird or a strange dream.

Would you like a taradiddle?
Is that like a cat with a fiddle?
Bumfuzzle is where it's at.
So a fuzzy butt sporting rat?

Cattywampus has you covered.
A crying cat that hovered?
Gardyloo is ready and waiting.
A guarded loo all would be hating.

Billingsgate is rather cheap.
Microsoft off sheering sheep?
Snickersnee is all yours.
Sounds like snicker eating chores.

Widdershins are second to none.
I bet kicking people there is fun.
Collywobbles are just the best.
Bobble heads that pass the test.

Gubbins are ready to serve.
See one, be sure and swerve.
Diphthong sounds rather umm sin like.
It'd be no good on a hike.

Blatherskite is an easy one.
Talking while flying a kite for fun?
Loblolly is a slow poke?
Or maybe on a lolly pop you choke?

Fartlek means cover your nose.
That type of gas must cause woes.
Codswallop really has to hurt.
You get whacked with a cod when you flirt.

Cockamamie sounds rather bad as well.
Putting that on display may be a tough sell.
Lagopodus sounds like a lego display.
Or maybe a bad disease that is hard to say.

Pandiculation means save the trees,
By giving the poor pandas fleas on their knees.
Pettifrogger is one getting ready,
He wants a kiss to come on steady.

And don't forget to be cool,
Get yourself a great new snool.
It may end up rather gory,
And I mean really vomitory.

Seen any fun ones that give you the runs? Yep, all the words are supposedly real. But the cat's meaning of them may be off as he spun the wheel. Hey, weather people guess every time. So a cat guessing isn't a crime. I may have even got one right. Or this has just been a cockamamie rhyme taking flight. See, I know one that came to pass. So excuse my fartlek little rhyming ass.

Enjoy your winter, smash a printer.

  2. They all sound a bit 'English'! :)
    Watching a lot of BBC and sometimes it takes a lot to understand what the characters are saying. These are great for rhyming though! Pettifrogger and all!

  31. I actually know what a Fartlek is because we had to run them in cross country in high school (sidenote: they are hell). Of course, since we were all about 14, it wasn't really a good time for the couch to introduce that word to all of us snickering kids.
