Of course, everyone knows that the bevatron is a synchrotron-like apparatus for accelerating charged particles to an immensely high level. But I like all your definitions better.

Zatoichi, you shouldn't worry so much about winning.

Everyone gets gifts in the spirit of the holiday season. Just stuff I thought you might like, related (at times very loosely) to your definitions.

nycwriters: I think this guy is adorable!

Coffee: Your very own marble vortex.

Dinzdale: Take all the time you need.

Zatoichi: Check out the debouch function on this little number.

xfox: Pity him for the man he's become.

daverbee: You did the lady an honour! Sorry I have nothing better to give you than the next round of the Dictionary Game!

Thank you!

Meanwhile, the new word is dactylomegaly



Edited to remove an unnecessary question.

a gelatin-based dessert featuring lady fingers and large eggs which may also be thinned and used as a sauce

Luckily, Fiona had enough leftover dactylomegaly from last Friday's dinner to conjure up the gravy for Gwen's entire engagement party on Sunday.

dactylomegaly: A poetic affliction best avoided -- in prose, termed the run-on sentence.

dactylomegaly n paleontology

A unusual short lived species of herbivorous dinosaur with a unique arrangement of legs; two shortish stubby legs in front and one long powerful leg in the rear. Scientists speculate that the species developed on the lower levels of what is now known as Mt. Ida, the only area where fossils have ever been unearthed, and that the leg arrangement was helpful in allowing the species to migrate to the top of the mountain and utilize the rich vegetation that grew there in the paleozoic era. However, once the species colonized the mountain up to the frost line the species subsequently died out unable to descend the mountain.

dactylomegaly n.

A system of government whereby all decisions are made by the House Speaker asking the assembled representatives, and the answer and resulting course of action decided upon by the Speaker selecting the person who waves his hand the most and says "Me! Me! Please Mr Speaker! Pick Me!".
A country run in this way is known as a dactylomegaly.

dactylomegaly - personality disorder related to hoarding over-the-counter painkillers.

Matt and Mark decided to do an intervention with Douglas about his dactylomegaly when they found out that he had been feeding his cat acetaminophen instead of cat food.

n. - abnormal largeness of fingers and toes.


Short and to the point. For creatively coming closest to the real definition without spilling anything, Rob wins!
I'm guessing one who is afflicted with the obsession he describes would be called a dactylomegalonarcissist. Or maybe a dactylomegalomaniac.

nycwriters 12-15-2006 01:44 AM

dactylomygaly - (translated from someone who's had their wisdom teeth removed and is still on anaesthetic -- and a bit of a pirate, to boot) - dat (that) ty (too) lo (low) my (my) galy (an affectionate pet name given by a pirate to his girl). In other words, his girlfriend has missed the spot that itches.

:D :D :D :D :D

Ms. Writers, you were just a bit too late as that def made me laugh. If our winner doesn't post a new word by tomorrow morning 8:00 am EST, you're up...

rapscalious rob 12-16-2006 05:10 AM

The new word is…

Pococurante (n) an alcoholic drink which consists of whatever dregs remain in the near empty bottles at the bar.

He starred in several lost classics such as "The Gay Caballero" and "Mind Your Ass, Sister Annuncia" before becoming an alcoholic when the speakies arrived, due to his unfortunate lisp.
