orgeat a family where pets outnumber people.

Living near the Rankin's who were seen bringing home yet another stray dog is proof, thought Larry as he passed by, they're orgeats.

orgeat - an extremely clever definition recycled from a round of The Dictionary Game from four years ago that manages to win the latest round yet again.

orgeat - One who recycles Dictionary Game definitions from a decade ago on another site entirely that even the Wayback Machine had trouble finding so it's a good thing I kept a copy! Uh, did I say that right out loud, or did I just think it?

orgeat - to unconsciously speak aloud that which was meant for an inner monologue only.

Hello to all of my online friends and neighbors. Kisses to all of you and welcome to the judging of ...[dddrum rrroll]...
The Dictionary Game
Creating better English, one word at a time

First, I would like to welcome our celebrity judge for today, a Dictionary Game devotee and good friend, former President George W. Bush. Please put your hands together for George!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jsF3deE38xo

Thank you, George for that inspiring introduction. Now, on to the serious job of judging the word "orgeat" (pronounced "or-jaht"), an obscure and severly underused word defined by Noah Webster as:

"a sweet almond-flavored, nonalcoholic syrup used as a cocktail ingredient or food flavoring."

Now how lame it that? As usual, TDG participants had a much clearer notion of what an orgeat is all about. And it is time to announce the winners of the coveted Marcus statuettes.

My beloved Ysapur wins a chocolate Marcus for this tempting definition:

Ysobel contemplated an orgeat party for her friends on Saturday, but some quink sounds awakened her from her reverie.
Trying for a double score, Ysapur offered:

Orgeat emptor! i.e. Fvck the buyer! is the motto and secret principle of all sellers.
GONG!!! Sorry, that definition is disqualified. George objected strongly to the use of a word ("fvck") without a vowel. Trying to pronounce such a word can cause serious damage to the larynx. You should have quit while your were ahead, sweetheart.

Stephi_B captures a crystal Marcus for her perfectly clear definition:

to orgeate v
to act like or be an orgeat

I'm unsure whether he really is an orgeat or whether orgeating is just his trick to get everyone laid.... in any case the effect is smashing!
Captain Java contributed a pair of entries:

The coveted Chicken Little Award goes to the Cap'n for his latter entry, which caused me to panic and commence the judging as soon as I could.

Pixie Cherries, our petite and lovely body builder, should have no difficulty hoisting her Marcus piggy bank, filled with excuses and IOU's, for this clever entry:

Quote:

Simple, precise and easy to spell. A masterful, full service term meaning "The organization ate my bailout money". If you are a victim of orgeat, take heart. This is good for up to, but not in excess of the first 50 billion.
A bare bones Marcus goes to Master Jedi, whose fertile imagination produced the following:

Quote:

The Man Himself, recently returning to TDG following a lengthy unexcused and unpaid absence, sought to make up for lost time by concocting three entries for orgeat:

Quote:

"Betty has really drunk the company koolaid, hasn't she?"
"Yeah, she's a real orgeat all right."

Sorry, old buddy. No trifecta this time, but George seemed to get stuck on the phrase "drinking the company koolaid" and will be sending you a frozen koolaid Marcus for dropping that one on us. And I will add to that the coveted AMPHIBOLY Award, named for the very first word selected to kick off TDG's online debut. Welcome back, Marcus!

Now, we all love Brynn, am I right? She gave us the following pair of entries:

In addition to being runner up to Marcus for the AMPHIBOLY Award, Brynn will be presented with her very own extremely large, hairy bodyguard, covered from head to toe in gold brocade at her home by next week's celebrity judge, David Hasselhoff!

Now comes dddrum, who appears to have a nipple obsession:

Until he is finally weaned, dddrum will receive the coveted BBBooobbb Award.

OK, ...what was that?! Oh yes, Brynn, you're right, I did overlook your third entry:

Is that it? Did I miss anyone?

The winner of this week's judging and recipient of the solid gold, piping hot, stark naked, pearl inlaid Marcus is......

Pixie Cherries!!!!!

Take it away, Pix.

Thank you, dear, for the lovely award and the conscientious judging.

However, I feel obligated to point out that this dictionary allows no swear-words. Only four stars instead of everyday four-letter words.
Like **** or ****

Why, thank you for choosing my humble accounting term from the veritable verbose word vestibule (yeah, that kind of works) of your sovereign tribe. I am but a tiny body builder straining to benchpress adequate wordage in it's towering shadow. (Whew!!!)

Are you sure? But this is a great honor. No doubt.

Yes, and where can you get one of those extremely large, hairy bodyguards covered from head to toe in gold brocade? We only have WalMart and Shopko here.

Without further adeu, let's try...

A faith based science text book intelligently designed to meet scholastic requirements by presenting all sides of minimum required science curiculum, while implying that accepted secular standards are theories, and faith is fact.
