As an English teacher, I love this book; It is a dictionary of words that don't exist, but should.
In Life, there are many hundreds of common experiences, feelings, situations and even objects which we all know and recognize, but for which no words exist.
On the other hand, the world is littered with thousands of spare words which spend their time doing nothing but loafing about on signposts pointing at places.
Our job, as we see it, is to get these words down off the signposts and into the mouths of babies and sucklings and so on, where they can start earning their keep in everyday conversation and make a more positive contribution to society.
BTW, it was a book before it was a website, but you wouldn't know that being an e-thug and all. "A Good Site" my ass, try venturing into the outside world.
*Waits for the hate loaded with plenty of 'z's.*
Wow, this site is actually fucking hilarious. Thanks for the bump of a good thread by a shitty poster. How ironic.
Some good/funny ones I found...
A nipple clearly defined through flimsy or wet material.
The foul-smelling wind which precedes an underground railway train.
A leg which has gone to sleep and has to be hauled around after you.
The moment at which two people approaching from opposite ends of a long passageway, recognise each other and immediately pretend they haven't. This is to avoid the ghastly embarrassment of having to continue recognising each other the whole length of the corridor.
Mentally incapacitated by severe hangover.
The first, tiniest inkling you get that something, somewhere, has gone terribly wrong.
To make vague opening or cutting movements with the hands when wandering about looking for a tin opener, scissors, etc. in the hope that this will help in some way.
That last drop which, no matter how much you shake it, always goes down your trouser leg.
I'd like to see what words you fairymounts pick out.
