I say any blind, Japanese swordsman who submits his definition in any language other than English shall be pulled from competition unless they submit an English translation. It sounds hilarious and those of us too lazy to translate it would like to be in on the joke.

He said:

"A person who gets above himself by ingesting an hallucenogenic plant (Sanskrit Wort) as the pre-Hindu Indians did (Parsiks and Barszheks) and tells rambling, self-referential stories in an ordinarily unattainable jargon, such as pseudo-urban mixed with techno-babble (heutigen Umgangsprache ... Technik erzogene Fortschritt) ."

You're welcome.

The Damned Old Reality Award goes truculently to

http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=define%3Aparsec for

Parsec -- A unit of distance equal to about 3.26 light-years (or, more precisely, equal to 206,265 Astronomical Units). Technically, a parsec is defined to be the distance from which the Earth and Sun would appear to be separated from one another by 1 second of arc (about the size a dime would appear to be if seen from a distance of 2 miles).

The BOFH Award goes cruelly to

2. Equally, the sensual mood would be broken if one made the parsec of

Ride me baby, ride me fast!
Turn me over, spank my ass!"

im flattered and stunned, but as it is the new word is désobligeante

dinzdale 03-03-2006 07:08 PM

désobligeante music.

Musical direction for guitar where the stings are pressed up on the third and fifth frets and bent to produce a sustained tremolo. This technique is not to be confused with the blues guitar playing style of Stevie Ray Vaughan, as it in no way adds depth or emotion, and is merely used as a device in combination with staccato riffing as instrumental backing.
Commonly heard on soundtracks of 1980s pornography.

Editor's Note:
During the scene in Behind the Green Door where Marilyn Chambers is surprised by the black man in his white jumpsuit, you can distinctly hear perfect desobligeante
Boww-woww-chikka-chikka-bowww-ooww-chikka-chikka-owww-waaah

apparently. :o

désobligeante -- Moroccan slang that translates roughly as "the cat's ass"

trisherina 03-04-2006 11:41 AM

désobligeante: Clinical term for an adult who is a net drain on his or her support system.

kaskeens 03-04-2006 02:26 PM

désobligeante
 
désobligeante-the art of/or timing of being able to deliver desi arnez type quotes and/or comic relief. The most typical of these could be easily described with one of the most famous désobligeante's "Lucy.. you got some splanin to dooooo!"

daverbee 03-04-2006 03:53 PM

désobligeante

Bullfighting term in which the Matador admits that the bull won, cuts off his own ear and presents it to the bull, and impales himself on his own sword.

Brynn 03-04-2006 04:55 PM

désobligeante - ungrateful; surly

Well, the medium was the message, so you are in on the joke. However, that said, there had been some quasi-Kraut banter about here and "Fortschritt durch Technik". Actually, having paused here to review the bidding, I see that there was a play made at "Vorsprung durch Technik", the latter meaning "A Leap Forward through/thanks to Technology", whereas the former means "Progress through..."

I will claim if challenged that mine is a more West German idiom, while "Vorsprung" smacks dangerously of those DDR commies, but I digress.

>>Parsec -- a word adopted from the Sanskrit (see also Parsik, Barszhek) for the imagined, self-created, nevertheless never achievable final result of Progress; in today's vernacular it refers mainly to progress achieved through technical or technologic means."

PS -- the foregoing weasely defense is my entry for désobligeante.

désobligeante reason to open the can of woop ass.

dddrum 03-05-2006 07:22 AM

désobligeante n. - (1) an action to which the only proper response is to drop trou and waggle one's buttocks at the perpetrator.
(2) the act of aggressively waggling one's naked buttocks at another person.
(3) an impromptu social interaction in which two people waggle their bare bottoms at each other with rapidly escalating vigor. Widely interpreted as a sort of spontaneous dance, it is in fact one of the more beautiful rituale des ausdruckes surviving from our nascent Indo-European tribal roots.

And if you think I'm kidding, get a load of THESE! :eek:

désobligeante, n.

a ridiculously high priced French deodorant, the application of which is not really necessary (i.e. completely redundant) since it contains neither antiperspirant nor pleasing fragrance
