The you-almost-made-it-and-I'm-sorry-there-can't-be-two-winners prize goes to LUKKU for this fantastic definition

Claire emptied the contents of the estifogal over Nigel's head.

Congrats!!! :) :) :)

It appears that Funkytuba is hors de combat. Lukku -- perhaps you had better choose and judge the next word.

funkytuba 02-05-2008 07:30 PM

not so fast, Bales... you won't avoid me that easily...

here's the new word: blib

funkytuba 02-05-2008 11:45 PM

(btw, I'm not sure how many else of you are having intermittent problems accessing the site, but I am... I plan to do a full judging this week before too many entries come up (now that I've said it, I'll end up judging in March with 538 entries))

lukkucairi 02-06-2008 12:37 AM

blib (v.) - to make a mournful noise when one realizes that one wasn't quite fast enough to snatch the dictionary game laurels from a snoozing funkytuba

lukku blibbed in her drink, inconsolate.

trisherina 02-06-2008 01:55 AM

blib: v. To pretend sympathy to a reported illness.

"You can't use your arms for at least a month? That's horrible, Achma," Lauren blibbed, pawing through a mental Rolodex for anyone who might serve as a fill-in nanny to the twins.

blib - a miniature bib worn over the chin

It looks like you've got a little schmutz in your beard there, Cornelius, maybe you should consider wearing a blib.

Jack Flanders 02-06-2008 02:56 AM

blib: n. the reiterating oration of long-term politicians.

Stephi_B 02-06-2008 08:44 AM

blib v
to drink (usually, but not necessarily, an alcoholic beverage) in small sips while radiating both happiness and melancholy through body language


He sat in a quiet corner of the pub, watching the moving scenery, blibbing away the evening.

seebe 02-06-2008 12:44 PM

blib - Little gas expulsions that escape the body in a putt putt fashion (usually while running).

Everyone thought winner Daniel was crying with joy as they crossed the finish line first. Little did they know the tears were caused from the constant blibs his horse innocently blew into his face during the race.

Brynn 02-06-2008 06:35 PM

As a gift to the judge, the following need not be considered as a real entry, but beware - a thank you note for that is de rigeur :p

blib - a miniature blob. See also blobbette.

Marcus Bales 02-06-2008 08:13 PM

blib - a partial hole in the edge of a paper target, where the shooter has just barely managed to hit the paper on which the target is printed, but not even the target itself.

It's easier to teach women than men to shoot, because men have so many pre-conceived ideas about how they are supposed to hold the gun, or look holding it. Typically, a woman simply understands the instructions and starts hitting the target almost immediately, while most beginning men often can do no better than to blib the edge of the paper holding the target until it it looks perforated.

hypnoplasm 02-08-2008 03:11 AM

blib - a lie told to deliberately incriminate oneself for something one didn't actually do in order to experience the consequences of that action

Being bored and in need of emotional stimulation, Gabe blibbed to his wife that he had forgotten to pay the rent on time, knowing she would be upset and hoping to work it into an argument.

treekisser 02-11-2008 08:34 PM

blib, n. an alien creature of submicroscopic size and superior intelligence known to inhabit dustballs and believed to be the cause of dropped wireless calls, computer viruses, ring-around-the-collar, erectile dysfunction, and lost socks.

funkytuba 02-12-2008 02:46 PM
