Worthy entries all, but judging must commence...

The "Nice Effort, Thank you For Playing!" Award to Marcus Bales for
debouch - to remove a piece of small glass from a larger piece of leaded glass.

The "Hardy Harharhar!" award goes to Coffee for
Relieving pain, especially from Deborahs.

"$100 Gift Certificate to "The African Queen ~ A Very Fancy Spa!" goes to Hyakujo's Fox for
debouch to vacuum the pubic hair.
After six weeks filming in the jungles of Nicaragua Contessa Stapleton couldn't wait to get back to Hollywood for a long hand massage and a thorough debouching

Marcus picked up another award - The Silver-plated "I Know Just What You Mean" Statuette and an online gift subscription to "Poem for the Day" for
debouch to rid oneself of aesthetic pain
After reading through the poetry contest manuscripts, he couldn't wait to debouch by getting back to his library.

The "If They Didn't Do That on "Roseanne" Already, They Should Have" Award goes to Mr. Sweetie-pie Daverbee for
The act of forcibly closing an annoying person's mouth using only a feminine hygiene product.

dinzdalewent all out for the ultimate fantasy definition with
debouch also debouche adj.
Descriptive word used for when a person finds themselves semi-dressed or nude in a strange palatial hotel room, empty champagne bottles strewn about the suit, half eaten pate de fois gras on the coffee table, your black tuxedo ripped at the lapel. The sun is shining in warmly through the expensive lace curtains, lighting apon a stack of purple $1,000 casino chips that emulate a small waterfall from the telephone table. You shake your head to clear it, and you notice a red velvet Versache gown, a pair of black 6" stillettoes, a Victoria's Secret thong and diamond earrings all in a line from the door to the bed, to the fireplace, to the window, to the bathroom, back to the bed, to the bidet and back to the bed. Just as your senses can barely take it all in, you can hear a sweet lady's voice singing above the shower in the en suite, and wait...yes it is...she is singing in perfect harmony to that oh so familiar "I'm in the mood for dancing" by the Nolan Sisters.
That feeling you get right then, that, my friend, is debouche......:)

He wins the "Poof, Your Wish Is Granted!" Award and a box of condoms.

rapscalious rob wins the "I Definitely Want The Drugs You're On" and extra miscellaneous bonus points in future rounds for his enchanting entry:
debouch - To drop an armload of doodads, especially soft, fuzzy doodads, like plush microbes, for example.

After Merv had debouched the last armload of plush microbes onto his bed, he proceeded to pick them up one by one and place them on the shelf alphabetically.

Nycwriters wins Coveted Second Place for this clever definition:
adj: debouche - to extricate yourself from a situation after being an ass. (See debacle + douchebag)

That means that Trisherina wins First Place with an entry that has stayed with me all week:

debouch: The sensation experienced when handling something animate one thought inanimate.


trisherina 12-07-2006 06:24 PM

Pick up things you don't quite see from the floor, too, do you, Brynn? ;)

The next word: bevatron.

Zatoichi 12-07-2006 06:42 PM

I didn't want to risk winning, but I was gonna say:

debouch -- blowjob. from the french de (of the) + bouche (mouth).

nycwriters 12-08-2006 12:32 AM

Bevatron (n.) - A group of automated strangely animal-like robotic sex toys for those particular fetishists (re: upgrade from the blowup doll). (See Bevy+tronic, or Dinzdale)

Coffee 12-08-2006 04:12 AM


A low budget atom smasher, well, more of an atom bumper car ride. Having a semi circular track aproximatly the diameter of a large salad bowl and powered by stacks of what might well be recycled refrigerator magnets, and thus far too short and underpowered to generate enough speed to actually smash atoms and do actual physics experiments, the bevatron is however safely used in community college physics departments to study the effect of the collision of atoms to see if they get irate when rear ended.

daverbee 12-08-2006 10:29 AM


Upon her retirement from singing, Beverly Sills was astounded to find that many opera companies around the world were still clamoring for her to appear on their stages.
So, she commissioned a group of scientists to build an exact duplicate of herself in the form of a singing robot.
After many trials and errors (The Bevatron I had a tendency to explode while doing the Queen of the Night aria from Mozart's The Magic Flute, sending shards of hot metal flying into the audience), the Bevatron EX made it's debut with the Johannesburg Opera Company's rendition of Puccini's Tosca.
Unfortunately, the second violin section of the orchestra didn't seem to be up to the challenge. Having included some modifications to the Bevatron EX in anticipation of such a thing, they were soon vaporized by the Bevatron EX's lasers. A recorded track in the Bevatron EX's voice system of the second violin section successfully finished out the performance.
Opera companies around the world were put on notice that the Bevatron EX came with all parts for all operas Ms. Sills had performed in her career. Voice, chorus, and orchestral. They took note and all performances since have been flawless.


Edited to add an ess.

dinzdale 12-08-2006 07:23 PM

Bevatron n.

A ficticious device found for sale in magazines offering X-ray specs to see through women's clothing, the Bevatron claims to detect the smell of a woman in heat, so that pimply nobodies that live at home and masturbate to the bra section of the Sear's catalogue can somehow home in and "score" with a hot girl at a party. A complete waste of $6.49 I can tell you. :mad:

Zatoichi 12-08-2006 07:47 PM

Bevatron -- The replacement for Beverly in the original 1970s "Stepford Wives".

"That Bevatron sure has a great debouch function!"

xfox 12-10-2006 12:57 AM

Bevatron a person who is born in Beverly on the 4th of July, has a career in the US Navy and who dies on December 7th.

trisherina 12-10-2006 01:16 AM

Judging tomorrow, with luck!!

trisherina 12-10-2006 11:30 PM

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!

daverbee 12-11-2006 05:37 PM

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.

trisherina 12-12-2006 12:53 PM

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

Coffee 12-12-2006 01:30 PM

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.

dinzdale 12-13-2006 12:35 PM

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.

daverbee 12-13-2006 02:09 PM

dactylomegaly (from the Greek dactulo, "toe", and the Greek µegelo, "self-obsessed")
1 - One who constantly compares one's toes to the toes of others, always finding one's own toes to be better.

funkytuba 12-13-2006 03:59 PM

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.


daverbee 12-14-2006 08:07 PM


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.

daverbee 12-15-2006 10:31 AM

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...

Pococurante (n) an alcoholic drink which consists of whatever dregs remain in the near empty bottles at the bar. Named after the Mexican silent movie star of the twenties, Poco Curante, or as he was known to his legion of female fans, "The Mexican Valentino". 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.

trisherina 12-17-2006 11:48 AM

LeahDear 12-18-2006 08:37 AM

^^^ :D :D :D
excellent! Can't hope to beat that but here goes:


The nickname of the, now famous, italian fan of cheesy 70's american country rock band Poco
She got her 15min of fame by sending polaroids of herself covered in carbonara sauce to lead singer Richie Furay. Richie however, was a big fan of Italian cuisine and fell madly in love with her... they've been making sweet meatballs ever since.

Coffee 12-18-2006 02:06 PM

Pococurante: n

1. A poker term for sneaking a smaller than required ante into the pile.
2. An act of financial desperation often involving a bet on long odds with limited capital.

pococurante - the act of walking a very slow, elderly, incontinent dog.

Marcus Bales 12-21-2006 10:30 AM


A person famous for a little thing,
A small accomplishment, or minor deed;
Like one-hit wonders who can barely sing,
Or free-verse poets who can barely read.

xfox 12-24-2006 04:56 PM

pococurante a small accumulation found in a bedchamber from which dust is derived.

Augustino's pococurante resulted in the need for a vacuum cleaner long before he owned one, and it would be years before he would even care about the fact that dust ever mattered.

blumeaniandglov 12-25-2006 04:23 AM

Pococurante--Comes from the latin root poco which means 'a little.'

To pococurnate: To ferment a small amount.

Used in the ancient Indian tribes with berries and walnuts to salve wounds, and, generally, fend off bears.

rapscalious rob 12-27-2006 05:14 AM

The winner here is Marcus Bales, with his convincing fake definition written in verse, no less! :cool:

The real definition (from A Word A Day @ wordsmith.org):

Indifferent, apathetic, nonchalant.


A careless or indifferent person.

[From Italian poco (little) + curante, present participle of curare,
(to care), from Latin curare (cure, care).]

Marcus Bales 12-27-2006 09:26 AM

Oh, man! I only meant to remind Rob that it had been a long time since he posed the word. But as the Japanese say "The nail that sticks up shall be hammered down". Ah, well.

The new word is
