cachexy - of or describing a shaman who prefers curses that deal with excrement

Vinood was shocked to be followed everywhere, apparently at random, by dyssenteric horses, loose dogs, and runny cows and thought "This must certainly be the work of that cachexy Dirk the Disturber."

cachexy, n.

collection of dubious propositions duplicating original catch phrases stored elsewhere or collected earlier, where the original data is troublesome to access or to compute. in other words, a cachexy is a temporary storage area where frequently accessed drivel can be stored for rapid access.

cachexy, n. the name of a post-2008 depression financial services company providing loan guarantees with sexual services.

In the wake of the subprime lending crisis and subsequent evaporation of liquidity, firms, such as cachexy, that represented considerable sexual assets, sprang up to fill the gap left by bankrupt bond insurance and other lending guarantors.

cachexy - What the 12-year-old chess genius would inevitably say when putting your king in check. Which is why I ultimately had to forfeit a game to him, though there was the satisfaction of hearing that the operation to remove his queen after I had inserted it in his body with rather more force than was optimal took 7 hours and required three different kinds of surgeon.

It's a beautiful day to belatedly judge this round, begun at least seven agonizingly long days ago.

cachexy - noun - any general reduction in vitality and strength of body and mind resulting from a debilitating chronic disease - related words: cachexia, wasting, debility, feebleness, frailness, frailty, infirmity, valetudinarianism - the state of being weak in health or body (especially from old age)

As the company webmaster, she could quickly route the feed to the front page of the website. That afternoon she filed for divorce based on "cachexy".
Although an admirable entry about revenge served chilled, the red-headed judge is unaccountably miffed, perhaps because she is still reeling from the recent National Geographic article that states that redhead mutants will be extinct in less than 60 years. She feels that any breeding programsor pleas for aid made by her daughter's friends at her high schoolare more appropriate than vilification Even so, well done!

Equivalent to the old english version of va va va voom , except it’s not exclusive from males to females.
Special kudos for this entry for giving the judge (recently laid off due to the sub-prime mortgage crisis, along with her husband - most recently a loan officer) a great idea. Winner of the "That's Ingenious!" Award for encouraging desperate families everywhere:

In fact, it had a chance to win, but then he was hoisted by his own petard.....

Marcus is really to be commended not just for his restraint, but also for what appears to be a discernible growth in wisdom and patience. Well done!

Not to be outdone, however, was miss mix, with my favorite entry of all.It wins

Your life really needs a healthy amount of cachexy now.
Indeed it does, it does indeed. Congratulations!

estifogal -- An unrequested declaration.

Pixie's estifogal that she loved TDG was widely greeted by the sort of "Awww!" that accompanies photos of puppies and kittens.

estifogal - an estimation of allowable safe speeds mariners use when sailing in heavy fog based on how far their light beams penetrate into it.

The estifogal for 30 foot visibility is generally 5 knot.

^^^Gross mis-reading of the maritime rules of the road.

Actual definition:

Estifogal: An estimation of allowable safe speeds mariners use when sailing in heavy fog based on how far their fog horns and radar penetrate into it.

International Navigational Rules Act of 1977 and the Inland Navigation Rules Act of 1980 are not specific, but a careful reading of Part B ( Steering and Sailing Rules), Rule 6 ( SAFE SPEED), Section 7 (Reduced Visibility Conditions) reveals that the basic tenet of estifogal estimation is that he with the loudest horn has right of way and can proceed at any speed radar visibility allows.


(BTW...this is NOT an entry, just a joke re: seebe's fine entry above)

estifogal: A derisive German birdwatching term.

A collegial backpacking expedition in the Schwarzwald turned ugly when Maximilian labeled Helmut's careless misidentification of a common wood grouse as a three-toed woodpecker "an estifogal of grand proportions."
