huke - annoying and nearly, but not quite, irrelevant internet link

With her sterling record of interesting comments, no one expected a huke from Brynn.

Last time I picked a short word, there were a dozen entries... I guess it didn't work out quite that way this time...

I'm afraid I didn't get the joke in this one:

Hanky, Panky and Huke grew into anonymity as time went by.
And I know this joke only too well:

Flattery will get you everywhere, so Brynn wins Coveted Second Place for:

"And you know what? That kid is especially huke when he's standing up to bullies," she said as she popped a delicious acarine-flavored Jellybelly into her mouth and thought about Harry Potter.
But we actually use "hork" as a verb at work already, so First Place and a year's supply of our premium services go to:

We have huke up our definitions, now we may be judged.

Having picked me, Marcus wasn't really a candidate to win anyway, so his prolificacy is noted but insufficiently glandular to register a mention for each entry.

Oh yeah, reality states that a huke is an outer garment worn in the middle ages. I got it from one of the links in The Phrontistery, but it turns out to have been in thefreedictionary all along: http://www.thefreedictionary.com/Huke

Take it away Hukkukari!

I see.

The new word, then, is brephophagist

Have fun, y'all!

brephophagist - the ancient Greek for what the Romans called cunnilingus: a clever person who speaks several languages.

Bman surprised Lukku while they were sorting her boxes by demonstrating his ability as a brephophagist.

Brephophagist. a species of primates who can illuminate body parts, and cause their fluids to change color at will.

Inviting brephophagists to your holiday party demands a camera, you wouldn't believe it!

brephophagist- n.

From ancient Greece, the original planned title for the first ever employee in the job of "oratorical speech pre-planning consultation and post-writing redundancy and grammatical error elimination". The title was in usage for only 2 days until interviews were complete and the job was filled. The first task of new position, of course, was to rename job title, and task name, to "Editor" and "Editing".

brephophagist - Sanskrit bresso (urban area) + sagi (wise): a sophisticate, a person of the city, one widely educated in things of this world, often used in a faintly disparaging way, as of a degenerate.

At first, Lukku enjoyed Bman's brephophagist ways, but they soon palled, and she let the affair sink quietly into oblivion.

Cleverwise, I would say Coffee is spot on. In terms of an educamated guess, however, wouldn't a BREPHOPHAGIST be a mint favored by vampires? Just askin'.

[What? I was out of shower gel. I came right back.

It's a hard-to-find brand, all right?

Anyway, look how clean...]

brephophagist - one who is skilled at talking while burping.

Steve, a seventh-grader and expert brephophagist, was able to routinely enthrall cafeteria audiences with his "Ali Baba," and "Pardon Me" offerings until he met his match in Trevor, who upped the ante with "Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves" and "Pardon Me Please For Burping."

brephophagist - one of the three kinds of gist in a fall of scree at the bottom of a slope of a mountain, phalangist is the finer, approximately pea-sized gravelly gist; suffragist is the next larger layer underneath, composed of golf-ball to soft-ball sized rocks; and brephophagist, the layer of rocks approximately baby-sized.

By the time they'd dug through the phalangist and suffragist layers to the brephophagist, they had to admit that their hopes and chances of finding the bodies were as crushed as, well, as the bodies probably were.

Brephophagist:

Any member of the taxonomic domain of Brephophag, sucrose based life forms theorized to exist for only as long as until another creature discovers it. The abscense of any fossil records is metaphysical proof that brephopags are the tastiest creatures in the universe, and incapable of surviving long enough to reproduce.
