prognathous: n. a remedy of last resort to get things moving again.

In an attempt to revive the dictionary game's pulse, Brynn offered a prognathous - to delete all previous faux definitions in order to lessen Ysa Pur's judging burden.

Prognathous:

1. Premature panic.
2. Permissable leeway

Participants in THE game prognathoused a bit until realizing that Ysa had 3 of 6 months still available of the prognathous allowed by the previous MISGUIDED ( ) judge's award.

prognathous - a poem of complaint in anapestic dimeter

Hoop Up
For Anne Snyder, who wished to

I can’t keep my hoop up --
it falls to the ground
instead of it going
around and around;

I hula my body
and swivel my waist
then look at my hoop
on the ground with distaste.

I’m getting more exercise
bending to pick
the bloody thing up
than performing the trick.

Having been afflicted with a fear of small flying insects, I have tried to overlook funkys definition, but simply could not. His grasp of the wasp earns him a golden flyswatter.

Introspection is a quality lacked by many, but not Marcus Bales. A hand-mirror, that never fails give the correct answer to the question Whos the wisest one of all? shall be passed as a reward for yet another of his definitions.

Respect, admiration and praise for xfoxs cryptic definition that left me wanting for more a full glass, to be precise.

He was trying hard to be festive, but not only his attitude but his seasonal apparel as well was prognathous.
The Politically Un-Incorrect Award, as well as a Tear of Sympathy in a crystal receptacle of some sort is given to Marcus, for his touching example sentence.

Marcus Bales trudged home toward a coign of the cliff between lowland and highland, at the sea-down's edge between windward and lee, walled round with rocks as an inland island, the ghost of a garden fronts the sea, somewhere just outside of Cleveland, not realising the muted enthusiasm for his prognathous call to "Let's all meet up in the year 2000!" wasn't entirely personal.
Gasp! A rare gem and unexpected participation. The prize is great: hfox will not have to do the loathsome duty of judging the next round.

Prognathous

it is an obscure Greek word..
a derivative
of another which means loosely
one who is born to
.save the day
It is never used once said child is past infancy
or utters his first word
(whichever comes first)
This interesting definition gets MoJoRiSin the Gray Cloak of Houdini for her repetitive disappearance acts.

Brynn receives Thors drinking horn with which he almost drank up the sea in three big gulps.

Brynns next entry gave me much joy, then great disappointment, because first I thought her generous heart overflowing with compassion made her judge this round for me.

Marcus Bales numerous poetic postings get him a bay leaf per entry, to be used for either culinary activities or for The Wreath.

The winner is Coffee, the gentleman. Ta-da!

Gristalmalituphenia - a visual impairment that makes everything look taller and thinner than it really is. Also known as "El Greco's Disease".

Gristalmalituphenia n. a condition that causes inner turnings to plan ahead.

Gristalmalituphenia slowly unsettled Gretel who realized the time of life arrived and moving closer to salt water became an obsession.

Gristalmalituphenia -- fear of participating in a game.

As soon as Coffee posted the new word the entire Zefrank Bulletin Board membership seemed struck by gristalmalituphenia.

Gristalmalituphenia

Bad case of Stall-inism, a lack of a sense of urgency.

Coffee suspects that the recent snail pace of TDGame has caused expectations for another 3-6 month round.

Gristalmalituphenia n. inability to see freckles and dimples.

As with a slight loss of hearing Megan's gristalmalituphenia was a blessing.

Who needs detail, it's how you feel, she thought.
