A delightful display of definitional delusions:

Honor and Second Place and a five-day-old turkey carcas goes to: H. Fox

First place and a Cauldron full of eggnog go to Brynn

ulvose -adj full of reeds or weeds

Brynn 12-09-2013 12:04 PM

I can't remember what first place means.

funkytuba 12-09-2013 04:34 PM

it means you choose the next word and judge the next round

Brynn 12-12-2013 03:49 PM

Ah yes, it's all coming back to me now, thank-you, Funky :-)
Correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think we've done...


I will be judging when there are at least five entries from five unique posters, or after five months have gone by, or somebody sends me $5 - whichever comes first.
And I'll do it in five awkward run-on sentences, each featuring a five-syllable nonsense word, possibly after drinking a fifth of vodka. If I can post it at five o'clock on the fifth of the month, I would still be able to count on one hand the number of times I've ever attempted such a ridiculous and pointless challenge, which is why I'm dubbing this the "David Blaine" round. Especially silly ones will be favored. There, dammit.

Brynn 12-12-2013 03:51 PM

And if we've already done that word, then I'll change it to something else within five hours of becoming aware of that.

pyroluria - the tendency to insert random strings of digits, most of which are assuredly in pi somewhere, into everyday speech

YsaPur EsChomuw 12-19-2013 02:46 PM

pyroluria – a pathological attraction to playing with fire.

Ysobel, despite having sworn not to post another definition in TDG thread, fell victim to a bout of intense pyroluria, and bared her soul to the flames of perpetual hell.

YsaPur EsChomuw 12-19-2013 02:55 PM

pyroluria - the condition of pissing fire

Ysobel's recent adventure, The Knickerless Anticipation of the Arrival of Father Christmas ended in a serious inflammation of her urinary tracks, so now she dreads every visit to the toilet, on account of her excruciating pyroluria.

YsaPur EsChomuw 12-19-2013 03:03 PM

pyroluria - roast sea snails

There's no way I'm going to Ysobel's party! She only serves pyroluria instead of canapés.

funkytuba 12-20-2013 03:38 PM

go ysa go!

Hyakujo's Fox 12-20-2013 11:30 PM

pyroluria A compulsion to expose ones genitals during fireworks displays.

Next year, according to Marcus Bales, president for life of the Combined Cleveland Poets and Pyroluriacs Association, people would see for themselves the true meaning of Independence Day.

Well bust my buttons but this is already off to a spectacular start, complete with multiple entries no less (which I enjoy) but we still are two shy of the required five unique posters (the uniqueness of the current posters notwithstanding).

Brynn 01-28-2014 07:54 PM

Thank you for this splendid outpouring of enthusiasm for this wonderful game! I am not waiting until there are five unique posters. In fact, did I say "posters"? I meant posts. At least five unique posts, damn that auto-correct. I'd say all of these posts are pretty unique, to be sure.
Hfox wins a traditional London Fog raincoat for his entry, and shares high honors with Funkytuba, who wins a DVD of the excellent (but very dark) cult hit "Pi" (not to be confused with "Life of Pi"). As for Ysa, your entries and exuberance thrilled and excited, making you the WINNER and judge of the next round. CONGRATULATIONS!

As for the actual definition, I suspect that I myself might have a mild case of this:

YsaPur EsChomuw 01-30-2014 04:41 AM

as for the actual definition, I would beg to differ and offer this NEW! definition:

pyroluria - a load of bollocks on the internet


Now, on a more serious matter: sink your teeth into a williwaw. Or not. If you think its original meaning is fairly overused, give it a new one - at your pleasure. I dare you.

MoJoRiSin 01-31-2014 05:25 PM

Williwaw refers to a state of flux a person's brain experiences when they are trying to follow directions but have been given 2 conflicting ideas on how to proceed.
