Friday Fun Words

Here you are again, with me, the lovely Yvie. For all the new followers, Friday is when I make up definitions for word verification words so all my ape-friends may go about using them in their daily chats.

It's come to my attention recently that Mommy has placed in a writing contest and has also received blog awards.

The problem being that she never once thanked me - I, who help out with her Friday blog entries, and I who sit next to her on the couch while she types away.
Ungrateful, that's what Mommy is.

So I thought I'd share my own contest I won - that's right, all me!

Mommy is an occasional visitor to a french bulldog forum where they have a Picture of the Month contest. It's always tough to win because many of the members are also photographers.
Needless to say, Mommy has been a member for 3 years and never once have we come close to winning.

UNTIL THIS MONTH!

That's right! I am the Picture of the Month at French Bulldog Worldwide! This means I'm on the home page all month and I also qualify for the 2010 Picture of the year contest.

Here's the picture that won February:





So take that Mommy!

Onto the words!


Flonest - honesty for flowers

Moloil - what male rodents put on their fur before a date

Buntskin - the outside layer of a cake

Nonogro - herbicide you give to weeds to stop them from spreading

Litioink - a glowing pig.

Puncrum - in a pun marathon (you know, where someone says a pun, followed by someone else making an ever better one, etc) the last remaining pun. Often this pun is weaker than all the others which leads to the end of the punning thread


I'll be back to bark at you next week!

I do love a good pun marathon

Noelle Nolan said...

I'm a new follower to your blog and love the words and definitions for Fridays. Great blog. I'll visit often.

Teebore said...

Puns are the highest form of comedy.

And buntskin just sounds...gross, despite being part of a tasty cake.

Oh, and congrats, Yvie! Everyone's a winner on Falen Formulates Fiction! You could photoshop in a cape to that picture and you'd look like Krypto the Super Dog.

Piedmont Writer said...

Congratulations Yvie! What a fabulous picture Mommy took of you!
You're so graceful sailing over that pole, your fur is so brilliant, your eyes so bright, and your ears have glorious lift. What a wonderful sight! I'm sure all the other dogs who subsrcibe to the mafazine will be jealous!

Falen said...

Anne- i know, right? Jezebel always has good ones

Noelle - thanks for stopping by!

Teebore - they are indeed. The cape idea is brilliant. but i'm not all that handy with picture altering

Piedmont - aww thanks.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Good job, Yvie! You show those other dogs how it's done.

Summer said...

Such a svelte specimen of French bulldog-ness! Soaring over the competition...

(I think I'm going to write a short story using word verification.)

Your Friendly Neighborhood Palindrome said...

WTG, Yvie!! You are the supreme ruler of Frenchies!

I also love a good punathon.

Buntskin can also mean skin that's fallen short in the growing process. That's the medical definition. And to be perfectly flonest...a derogatory name for short people.

zemical- an off brand of Nonogro.

Shannon O'Donnell said...

My favorites: flonest and puncrum! :-)

Nicole Ducleroir said...

Buntskin is actually my favorite dessert :))

I Love Fridays! I needed a good laught today, thanks!!!!!

((hugs)) Nicole

Falen said...

Alex - she tries. she tries.

Summer - if you do write a short story using word verification, i would send you a present. No joke.

Palindrome - LMAO! you remind me of futurama when Leela says to Fry "Let me ax you something..."

Shannon - i like puncrum as well - i can't wait until i come across my next punathon so i can idenify the puncrum

Nicole - i flonestly don't know if i've ever had a buntcake...

Falen said...

Teebore - i updated the blog post for you ;D

Teebore said...

Awesome! Yvie to the rescue!

Your Friendly Neighborhood Palindrome said...

That is terrific!! LOL!

Falen said...

Teebore and Palindrome - Twin occasionally pulls out some amazing stuff.

Carolina Valdez Miller said...

Congrats to the lovely Yvie!!! What a beautiful picture.

Loving the Friday Fun words, especially buntskin. That has to be one of my new favorite words. Must now find a way to incorporate that one into my daily life.

P.S. You deserved to win ;)

Joan Crawford said...

Yvie - You finally have an outfit worthy of you! Congrats on winning your contest :)
I agree with Teebore - buntskin. Euch!

68 followers! Holy crap!

Falen said...

Carol - aww thanks. Yes, i almost need to bake a buntcake just so i have an excuse to use the word

Joan - for some reason it reminds me of the skin on pudding

Teebore said...

it reminds me of the skin on pudding

Which is gross! Yuck!

Lisa and Laura said...

Oh my gosh, I love those pictures. And for the record, I love the skin on pudding. Yum!

G.~ said...

Love, love, love the picture.
Great idea with the words! You're pretty fabulous lady.

Wendy (aka quillfeather). said...

Yvie, you are simply gorgeous! I love bulldogs. I'd like to take you home with me. Would mummy mind?

Fun post :)

Falen said...

Teebore - i think the idea of skin on pudding is gross. but it's not so bad when you're eating it.

Lisa and Laura - i'd love some butterscotch pudding. the kind you cook on the stove. mmmm

G - aww shucks. thanks!

Wendy - Yvie would love the attention, but as she's mommy and everyone else's favorite, she couldn't be gone for long.

Postman said...

How awesome is this? I've been saving blogger verification words, but I'm trying to make drink recipes out of them. I never thought of actually giving them (hilarious) definitions like you have. Brilliant stuff.

Oh, and related to a post you put over on Fiction Groupie...

I think I'm going to name my firstborn son Daeus X. Makina (after our favorite contrived coincidence).

Kimberly Franklin said...

LOL! Love the flying dog! ; D

Southpaw said...

Congrats Yvie, it's is well deserved.

Kristin Rae said...

OMG I LOVE Frenchies! Hubby wouldn't let me get one though. We compromised with a Boxer... and then a second Boxer. lol.

LOVE the picture!

Falen said...

Postman - that is possibly the best name i've ever read...

Kimberly - i have to laugh every time i look at it

Southpaw - thanks! she certainly feels it's deserved...

Kristin - we're big boxer fans too and for a long time Twin was pretty sure she was going to get one
