palfrey: The insider term for Roger Daltrey's groupies.

From high up on the lighting scaffold, Josh watched with a combination of horror and amusement as bevies of his age peers lined up for palfrey duty with the old man.

palfrey n. a prominent facial skin blemish capable of draining the blood supply to the lips, resulting in slurred speech, dry mouth, loss of appetite, chills, fever, and loss of libido. The cause of palfrey is believed to be linked to impure thoughts, penis envy, and greed.

palfrey n. (archaic) an ornate, spherical tassel (usually beaded in abalone shell and semi-precious agates) attached to a bell pull that customarily hung in drawing rooms of typical Victorian homes. It was originally used to summon servants.


"Dundee, you naughty naughty dog!" Blanche quickly extinguished her meditation candle and picked up the bewildered white terrier and held it like a baby, crooning "Youve gone and chewed up a $3500 antique palfrey and I'm barely reacting, aren't you a glad little puppy dog? Aren't you glad you're so cute? Aren't you glad you cost more than an antique palfrey? Yes you are!"

palfrey (n) The world's largest breed of chicken, known to have reached full grown heights of over four feet. They were named after their creator, the Rev. Palfrey. Rev. Palfrey himself met an unfortunate end when one day he, after dining on a particularly crunchy salad roll, forgot to brush himself down before entering the coop and received a brutal pecking from his favourite hen, Eleanor. The resultant fried chicken only diet the Reverend embarked on from that day, subsequently led to his early death from heart disease some five years later.

Ok gang, great entries, but I'm judging this now before it gets any bigger and so in no particular order since nobody got the real definition of palfrey which is a horse

DDDrum made me smile (as always) but must have a food dilemma going on so he gets this and the key to the Golden Monkey Club for a month for his entry:

that long stringy bit on a banana that won't come off your finger no matter how hard you flick it and flick it and flikflikflik but nooooo, the whole farking banana will fall into the trash can before this diabolical pubestrand of satan ever will i can tell you that, pally. Also known as an ohdammit.

My hope that TreeKisser will accept, but had the wrong diagnosis and receives a trip to correct the possible cause of this terrible illness here for the cure:

a prominent facial skin blemish capable of draining the blood supply to the lips, resulting in slurred speech, dry mouth, loss of appetite, chills, fever, and loss of libido. The cause of palfrey is believed to be linked to impure thoughts, penis envy, and greed.

It seems I've seen this before, from HFox, however a grande version of Poulet poche au vin blanc is my recommendation, but granted, a challenge when selecting a pot. Mr. Fox please do not cease to paint these hilarious images for us and accept this with the Ornithological Nightmare of the Month Award for your entry:

The world's largest breed of chicken, known to have reached full grown heights of over four feet. They were named after their creator, the Rev. Palfrey. Rev. Palfrey himself met an unfortunate end when one day he, after dining on a particularly crunchy salad roll, forgot to brush himself down before entering the coop and received a brutal pecking from his favourite hen, Eleanor. The resultant fried chicken only diet the Reverend embarked on from that day, subsequently led to his early death from heart disease some five years later.

For Trisherina a little something to frame and recall those psychadelic days of yore and the Special Appreciation Award for

palfrey: The insider term for Roger Daltrey's groupies.

From high up on the lighting scaffold, Josh watched with a combination of horror and amusement as bevies of his age peers lined up for palfrey duty with the old man.

The Coveted Second place goes to:

Miss Brynn who wins a lifetime fractional share on this for her gift of Oriental gab and her brilliant idea of this definition, though incorrect, delightful:

an ornate, spherical tassel (usually beaded in abalone shell and semi-precious agates) attached to a bell pull that customarily hung in drawing rooms of typical Victorian homes. It was originally used to summon servants.

And the WINNER is Ysa Pur Eschomuw for the most plausible definition of the human struggle in the days of olde when might made right and there is a good chance a palfrey had something to do with it, or when things cool down the and knight comes back for the maiden in distress:

palfrey - a heated dispute among mates that ends with a very loud quarrel and a very long period of silent resentment.

Congratulations, Ysa!

And the next word is:

That was unexpected. Thank you, xfox.
And may I express my heartfelt admiration of the much more creative entries of the fine definers' troupe?

Now for something completely different:

[Great job of judging, Foxy!]

desuperpollicate v. to purposely mimic and attempt to outdo the creation, action, or expression of another, usually in a tastelessly ostentatious, over-the top manner.

I have a jealous neighbor who, taking personal offense from everything I do, responds by desuperpollicating. Once I brought home a new piano and he soon installed a pipe organ. When I purchased a new car, he bought a limousine. This week, my wife is getting breast implants and I cannot wait to see the reaction from next door.
