acarine older than dirt and bitter to the taste.

There was something acarine about the way she came and went, fortunately it was not with great regularity.

acarine - the sweet smelling, sour fruit of the acarine tree


After trying several diets he ended up with the acarine wonder - it's easy to lose weight eating nonexistent fruit, after all.

acarine: a rich red-purple colour.

Puckering her lips after a long sip of ice cold lemonade, Olive surveyed the partygoers, swaying slightly to make her acarine chiffon skirt flounce at the bottom.

The Free Online Dictionary wins the Boring Old Reality Award, and a case of DDT, for:

acarine - of or caused by acari, or mites.

Coffee wins the Apathy Award and a case of Who Cares cereal, which contains a slew of special ingredients, whatever they may be, for:

acarine- (ah-Care'-i-nay) Indifference to the results.

Coffee found himself more entertained by the predictable results of the dictionary game experiment than his acarine expectations warranted.

xfox wins the Judges Take These Things Personally Prize and a set of slashed tires, and a good keying down the driver's side of the car, for:

acarine older than dirt and bitter to the taste.

YsaPur EsChomuw wins the Anorexia Nervosa Award and a free membership at the Keith Richards Health Club, for:

acarine - the sweet smelling, sour fruit of the acarine tree

trisherina wins the PMS* Award and the Coveted Second Place Award and a big box of 96 Crayola Crayons for:

acarine: a rich red-purple colour.

Puckering her lips after a long sip of ice cold lemonade, Olive surveyed the partygoers, swaying slightly to make her acarine chiffon skirt flounce at the bottom.

funkytuba wins First Place and the Recursion Award and the Recursion Award and the Recursion Award and the Recursion Award and a Winchester Repeating Rifle BB gun, for:

acarine - the condition of being pissy and snippy with people on an internet bulletin board when they don't conform to your whimsical and capricious rules

When Bales turned his limerick into a luc bat, FunkyTuba responded by posting a caption in the image association thread, setting off erzo who posted a picture of LaZy Manfred in Mo's Posts and the Zeboard descended into a general state of acarine.

Take it away, Funks.

huke - another word for "hunky" (which rhymes with "funky.")

"And you know what? That kid is especially huke when he's standing up to bullies," she said as she popped a delicious acarine-flavored Jellybelly into her mouth and thought about Harry Potter.

Huke -- Charlie Huke, American poet, b. 1920, founded the literary journals "Sickle", "Hoe", "Spading Fork", "Shovel", and "Scythe" before he gave up founding literary journals, only to see "Ploughshares" prosper immediately afterwards. Huke is perhaps best-known for this often-quoted quatrain:

We know a fair amount about our loversí eyes and hands
Which say so much and have so much to give,
But we know nearly nothing of each othersí bodyís glands
Because our glands are very secretive.

huke - the comment wrenched from those whose sex lives are not as interesting as others', when they get that stomach-dropping jealous feeling that results from hearing, or imputing, too much about someone else's sex life.

Lukku's comment prompted Marcus's huke.

Everyone yawned at Funky's huke.

huke - the third entry in a row by the same person in the Dictionary Game.

No one was surprised at Marcus's huke.
