let's just say that things are in danger of going down hill from here:

leucipottomy - the act of rolling downhill perched in a grocery cart in one's underwear while howling at the moon and proclaiming something about wolves in general.

AHEHEHEM!

OK, having leucipottomized (or leucippotomized, or leuciddotomized) for long enough, herewith is the judgment:



coffee receives the Golden Bowl award and a year's worth of Thorazine for the following:

Leucipottomy: psy,

A variation of schizophrenia wherein the patient believes his/her feces are sentient and can converse with the patient
.


Some historians suspect that M. Bales' notorious early morning mutterings in the bathroom were more likely the result of leucipottomy rather than "poetical musings" as claimed in Bale's mostly auto-biographical memoirs. This unproven suspicion is, however, generally accepted, and is based on personal accounts by friends and family that the poet never flushed after himself and that he often reffered to bowel movements as "dropping off the boys".



Marcus Bales, you have won a Wrist Rocket and a lifetime's supply of loose apostrophes for ammunition in honor of the following:

Leucipottomy - apostrophe abuse, esp. using apostrophes wrong in two ways within the same sentence.

Coffee's use of the apostrophe after the s in Bales when it should have been apostrophe-s went from pottomy to leucipottomy when he abused a second apostrophe by misplacing it within the name: "Bale's".




a set of crampons, a "love apple" in a velvet case, and a framed picture of Rudolph Valentino for xfox:

Leucipottomy: To go to the mountain top of ones passion.

Mike and Zenyatta completed a faultless year and he felt the leucipottomy of a sure win in his future.





funkytuba receives a funky tuba with which to make Peanuts "wah-wah" teacher-voice noises for the following entry:

Leucipottomy - the act of removing a football from the path of the person trying to kick it

After the leucipottomy, Charlie Brown was left lying flat on his back wondering how he could have possibly fallen for it again




Brynnie receives a 1/3 share of coffee's Thorazine and a lifetime's supply of Duffy's Diner 2-for-1 burger coupons for this gem:

leucipottomy: the study of senseless mutterings while dabbling one's finger in a squirt of ketchup in order to draw pictures with it on the dining room table.




alas, poor Bales, add a rusty scalpel to your pile of DG schwag for this hasty entry:

leucipottomy - editing a post to add information after being reminded to do so.

Funky's reminder resulted in a quick leucipottomy from Bales.





everybody loves Hyakujo's Fox! hearty congratulations on not winning this round with this gallant effort:

Leucipottomy (n) An apocryphal book relating Moses' time with a travelling circus.

And Moses gave thanks to the LORD, for verily, unto each of the minutes of the day, the LORD has provided us a sucker.


...we award him a burning bush, a half-gallon of bush-fire-proofing snake oil, and a spare snake just in case.




Brynn's share of coffee's Thorazine is beginning to take effect, as she lands the coveted Been There Done That award:

leucipottomy - to willfully let go of all of one's mental moorings.

After one too many bottles of Prosecco at the celebrity gala, Blanche somehow ended up perched on the shoulders of John Hamm with her bare feet in the punch bowl - a spectacularly public leucipottomy that led inevitably to a long stint in the Betty Ford Clinic and oddly enough, expulsion from The Daughters of the American Revolution.




YsaPur EsChomuw wins the Oh God Why Don't I Judge This Game Quicker Next Time award, comprising a vintage 1983 Casio digi-analog quartz calculator watch and a western themed Chippendales calendar, for the following:

leucippotomy - a common delusion of the members of the fairer sex that Prince Charming on his white steed will eventually come to the rescue.

Aunt Mixie suffered from acute leucippotomy and carried sugar cubes and carrot sticks on her everywhere she went.




ah, dear MoJoRiSin: you have won the I C U Award for Surruptitiously Missing Consonants. Do remember stop round the back of the shop to pick up your prize - a bottle of ginkgo biloba and some fizzy vitamin C.

leuippotomy colloquial term used mostly in the British Isles
i means simply :: (in the state of) sitting on a cornflake waiting for the Van to come




Bales, you've won a wee bottle of scalpel-rust-remover and a plastic bottle of Black Velvet whiskey to aid you in the removal of those troubling nodes. I'm throwing in a rail ticket to Glasgow so you can go rub your parts at zero if you should so desire:

leucipottomy - removal of the homophonic nodes



Brynnie wins the Wolf Surfing Ribbon, and a pair of old metal key-skates and an Acme jet pack as an auxiliary prize for the following. I left them with Bales - you might want to check with him over at zero's after he recovers from the node-removal:

let's just say that things are in danger of going down hill from here:

leucipottomy - the act of rolling downhill perched in a grocery cart in one's underwear while howling at the moon and proclaiming something about wolves in general.





BUT the gold medal and the platinum standard for brevity under fire is awarded to none other than MISS TRISHERINA for the following:

Leucipottomy: Kosher killing of sea-cows.

here's the stunning knife and the baton, trish - have fun with them!

heh. excuse the leucip(p)o(t)tomy.

the actual leucipottomy is "the act of carving horses into the turf of chalk hillsides" - although the structural validity of the word is debated. to wit:

Quote:
The word would seem to have been coined by Morris Marples in his book White Horses and other Hill Figures of 1949. As many subscribers have pointed out since this article first appeared, Morris Marples was no Greek scholar. It looks as though it is formed from the Greek roots leuciĖ, white, hippo, horse, and the suffix Ėtomy. Unfortunately this last doesnít mean cutting or carving, but refers to cutting out or excising (as in many medical terms such as hysterectomy), so it actually means cutting off or excising white horses, which isnít the same thing at all. (And in any case, itís short one p and has one too many ts.) A better invention would be leucohippoglyphy or leucippoglyphy, but I canít find any evidence that either of these has ever been sighted. But if you have an urge to describe this little-known craft, at least now you will be able to avoid Mr Marplesí mistake.

bressummer - Peter Bressummer, 1950 - 1991, prominent American chemist and importer.

The Bressummer Process is named after Peter Bressummer, who discovered the principle of adding coke to a relationship, which bonds two (or more) people together in a symbiotic structure so long as the supply of coke holds out, or until the police come, whichever occurs first.

bressummer - person who uses online dating site matching algorithms to famous people as a proxy for numerology

Wanda went to see her bressummer who told her that because she was 38% enemy to George Bush and 95% friend to Janeane Garofalo that her path to enlightenment would include buying a Prius

bressummer - a breed of Assyrian coursing hound, referred to in the Layard studies, a pendulous-eared, stout, strong, muscular dog of what would in modern times be called a mastiff type.

Ashur and Ninos whisteld for their bressummers as they pushed their slingshots into the back pockets of their jeans, and each tied a game-bag around his waist.

bressummer

A cabinetry and furniture maker's tool used to aid in joining steam curved panels to a curved frame. It is a combination strap and vice apparatus employed to cinch tight and hold the springy panels in place while glue dries, or more traditionally while holes are drilled and wooden dowel/brads inserted to hold the panels in place.

Well, Dictionary Gamers, it's time for judging, by someone who's been there, done that, and knows it ain't that pretty at all. The years of sacrifice and preparation, of driving around the country, staying in bedbug-ridden motels, waking up in the predawn for an early practice, the camaraderie, the little chocolate donuts, the rigorous bittersweet life of the elite Dictionary Gamer -- we wouldn't trade it for anything in the end, now would we? Because it's what makes our country great (whatever country we live in) -- the freedom to log in to a little frequented vBulletin board with only 27 active members, and play the Dictionary Game, risk it all, leave it all out there in a daring, personal best definition that brings tears to the eyes of our friends and neighbours. Remember, regardless of the outcome today, you are all heroes.

YsaPur wins The Maidenform Award for her hourglass-shaped definition:

someone whose life mission is evaluating the upper part of female bodies.

YsaPur's other definition this round,

a brief period of happiness

wins the bronze medal. She will stand on one of the lower steps of the podium, on her left and your right, and try bravely to look happy.

Marcus Bales, another double-barrelled entry, wins a Timbits Snack Pack for his twofer:

Peter Bressummer, 1950 - 1991, prominent American chemist and importer.

The Bressummer Process is named after Peter Bressummer, who discovered the principle of adding coke to a relationship, which bonds two (or more) people together in a symbiotic structure so long as the supply of coke holds out, or until the police come, whichever occurs first.
, and

a breed of Assyrian coursing hound, referred to in the Layard studies, a pendulous-eared, stout, strong, muscular dog of what would in modern times be called a mastiff type.

Ashur and Ninos whisteld for their bressummers as they pushed their slingshots into the back pockets of their jeans, and each tied a game-bag around his waist.

Coffee wins the Too Danged Close for Comfort award for his definition:

A cabinetry and furniture maker's tool used to aid in joining steam curved panels to a curved frame. It is a combination strap and vice apparatus employed to cinch tight and hold the springy panels in place while glue dries, or more traditionally while holes are drilled and wooden dowel/brads inserted to hold the panels in place.

(The definition of bressummer is: n. beam or girder over opening and supporting a wall.)

lukkucairi wins the Cerebrovascular Accident award with:

a type of aneurysm which results in the loss of the ability to dream.

The silver medal and the opportunity to bask in the glory of an impressive pseudo-definition while undertaking none of the work of the next judging goes to funkytuba with:

person who uses online dating site matching algorithms to famous people as a proxy for numerology

Wanda went to see her bressummer who told her that because she was 38% enemy to George Bush and 95% friend to Janeane Garofalo that her path to enlightenment would include buying a Prius

funkytuba will mount the other lower podium step, to his right and your left. He will do his best to look statesmanlike and grateful.

The gold medal, a share of the Maidenform Award, and his very own Lexical Functional Grammar Award for this round of Dictionary Gaming goes to treekisser for:

adj. irregular comparative form of buxom.

Regular: buxom
Comparative: bressummer
Superlative: breathless

Congratulations, treekisser! While you are flush with endorsements and before you become just another ex-flogger of McCain's products, please give us the next word.
