yelve - a type of fabric made of cotton, silk and okra pulp. It feels similar to velvet in that it has a pile that is smooth when rubbed in one direction, but it it is also mucilaginous due to the okra pulp. It is always yellow, otherwise it is not yelve.

yelve - to continuously harass an authority (parent, boss, lunchlady) until you get what you want

Gertie yelved and yelved until finally Ms Mobley could not stand any more and gave her another scoop of peanuts from the big pan, "AND DON'T TELL YOUR FRIENDS I GAVE IN, Y'HEAR?, OR THEY'LL ALL BE WANTIN MORE!"

The actual definition is
Quote:
yelve (plural yelves)

1. (obsolete) A fork used to carry dung; such a fork used as a garden tool.
Now let's have a thorough analysis of the entries.

The third kid in the "Bye Bye Birdie" audition couldn't sing a lick, but his yelve was amazing.
unfortunately missed out because I don't like Elvis.

When Sally found out that Harry was cheating on her, she replaced the personal lubricant in his travel toiletry bag with extra strength yelve.
unfortunately missed out because I still haven't got over Bales mentioning Elvis.

No, I said itís not the pinis, itís the yelve. Well could be, said Mary, it hasnít been used in a year. Yeah,well maybe if you dressed up more often it would be used more often, duhh!! Oh really, well maybe if you coaxed it in and not tried to force it like you always doÖ.Mary looks over her shoulder, do you even have it in the right spot? What are you doing now?
Iím putting some oil on the pinis, that usually works. I thought you said it was the yelve that was rusty. It is the yelve thatísÖ oh justÖ never mind, and hold still! Itís in, exclaims John! Finally, says Mary,..now move it back and forth slooowlyyy, to work it. Oh Iím working it alright. Zip. Ok all done, let's go. Wow, once you got the pinis in, you really finished fast, almost too fast, Mary sighed. I kind of enjoyed you back there trying to get your bent pinis in my rusty yelve.
unfortunately missed out because, well, it just missed out okay.

unfortunately missed out because "winter overcoat" clearly would've been more absurd.

unfortunately missed out because that definition already belongs to the word 'internet'.

In parts of the US, a statement like that can be classified as reason for justifiable homicide.

You'd better lie low for a while, just in case.
