Geekdom, eh? Why isn't there also an associated list of the winners' names, and a link to each judge's witty rendering of judgment?

And you call yourself a geek.

absquatulate - to medicate oneself without success.

These antibiotics (ab's) did diddly squat and I'm not really sure, but now I think that maybe some drug companies possibly overdescribe their products' efficiencies?

absquatulate - that feeling in the pit of your stomach when you see a Yeti in North America, which causes hand-shake and fumble-focus in camera users; also, by extension, to make any error from fear or excitement.

Roger saw the tall, hairy humanoid figure clearly in his viewfinder, but he absquatulated the photograph.

Hyakujo's Fox 09-27-2005 12:07 PM

absquatulate (v.i.) to philosophize in the smallest room in the house

eg.

"Watcha doin in there!?"

"I'm absquatulatin! Now git!"

dinzdale 09-27-2005 02:46 PM

absquatulate v.

To have one's conversation drawn into embarrasment by the physical traits of the person you are talking to.

You find yourself absquatulating when talking to someone with one eye, and you find your conversation is peppered with references to Long John Silver, Aye Aye Captain, eye for an eye, I'll be seeing you...etc...
It is almost impossible to stop abquatulating once it has begun.

absquatulate (n.) - the solid portion of sewage waste, after being processed and separated from the liquid portion, which is referred to as weewee.

Mother only unlocked the credenza once a year to clean the collection of victorian figurines that she had received from Guglielmo during a lifetime together. Today had been such a day for Maria Concetta. Lorenzo looked at Jesus, who dangled over the bleached doorframe, crossed himself and grinned as he flipped up his collar and left Mother's house after having absquatulated the stolen diamonds in one of her dearly beloved figurines.

patavinity

Marcus Bales 09-30-2005 11:29 AM

Patavinity

A lot of folks are eminently chattable;
A few appeal because they look so pattable;
And fewer still have that divine affinity
Of being both that we call “patavinity”.

"Mm mmm. I've got... jus' a sec... mmm mmm mmmmm! *smek smek* By my esteemed calculation, I've gotta give this Olde Country Crocke Calcium-Fortified Lite 'n' Creemy With Just The Merest Hint Of Yoghurt™ a patavinity factor of 9.3! In fact, I can't believe it's... oop, hang on; I'm getting a private message.

Yes?

..

Yes. I understand.

..

All right.

..

No. No. I understand.

..

Okay. Thank you.


Um... I'm sorry. I'm, uhh... it seems I am legally constrained from saying what I can't believe this stuff isn't. But anyway, definitely a 9.3. Yeahh, boy."
