The Yranoitcid Game

Yes, it is "Reversed Dictionary" game.

In this thread the judge provides a "definition" and the contestants provide an imaginary word that, in their opinion, best fits the "definition"...and use that word in a sentence to illustrate the concept.


The first Def. is:

That sense of uncertain dread that you may have left the house and forgotten some important detail or item...something that you are certain will end up biting you in the arse later in the day.

All I can say is that at my house, I get called OCD..erm..I mean IT gets called OCD.

ETA Not actually playing the game..just making a confession of sorts.

oubliorumpia n. That sense of uncertain dread that you may have left the house and forgotten some important detail or item...something that you are certain will end up biting you in the arse later in the day


"Confound it!", said Lecherous Old Fogey Dinzdale at lunchtime, "Those bloody dentures have got to be somewhere." When he sat down to think and heard the snap in his back pocket, he felt a double dose of oubliorumpia.

Please also use your words in a sentence. Or frankly this game won't be as fun to read or judge.

Deja rue~That sense of uncertain dread that you may have left the house and forgotten some important detail or item...something that you are certain will end up biting you in the arse later in the day


Father Williams, as he left his house early Sunday morning couldn't shake the deja rue feeling hovering about him. He checked his coat pocket for the third time finding yet again his keys just where they should be, he firmly adjusted his leather bound bible beneath his arm, checked his hair to be sure it was combed in the glass on his door, adjusted his wire rimmed glasses, and shrugged. Everything seemed to be in order. he walked the short block to the church and opened the door with his key.

Behind him Eugene stared at him through her kitchen window, mouth hanging open...the old priest had left his house without his pants on and he was wearing black satin under shorts with kiss marks on them...

hippolepsy That sense of uncertain dread that you may have left the house and forgotten some important detail or item...something that you are certain will end up biting you in the arse later in the day.

The sun was shining and Candace hummed along to U2 as she downshifted for the exit, nearly T-boning a Lego-blue Versa when sudden hippolepsy made her recall that she'd stabbed the probe for the slow cooker into the vegetables rather than the meat.

tensasymph -The instant empathetic wince that occurs uncontrollably at the sight of another person getting hurt.

Youtube's early days were based almost solely on evoking a tensasymph in the viewer in the expectation that they'd come back again for a similar experience. Then lolcats were invented and it went to crap

copang - The instant empathetic wince that occurs uncontrollably at the sight of another person getting hurt.

A wave of copang swept over Ysobel when she learned her brother had bought yet another flashy sports car in the vain hope of impressing his ex-girlfriend.

The Roger Ebert Award, along with a signed copy of I Hated, Hated, Hated This Movie goes to xfox for:

notanxervitis -the instant empathetic wince that occurs uncontrollably at the sight of another person getting hurt.

The title 'Return from Hell and Back' should have been a clue, even though Sandy knew it was just a movie, notanxervitis hit and she pondered, why did I pay to see this crap?

The Saturday Morning Cartoons Award, along with a pair of printed lips on a cardboard smile on a popsicle stick for making his dialog more um, realistic, goes to funkytuba for:

tensasymph -The instant empathetic wince that occurs uncontrollably at the sight of another person getting hurt.

Youtube's early days were based almost solely on evoking a tensasymph in the viewer in the expectation that they'd come back again for a similar experience. Then lolcats were invented and it went to crap

The Poor Relation Award, together with a copy of the collected works of Jane Austen, goes to YsaPur EsChomuw for:

copang - The instant empathetic wince that occurs uncontrollably at the sight of another person getting hurt.

A wave of copang swept over Ysobel when she learned her brother had bought yet another flashy sports car in the vain hope of impressing his ex-girlfriend.

The Wouldn't It Really Kill The Thread To Award First Prize To Someone No Longer Posting Award, along with all five seasons of "Friday Night Lights", and The Coveted Second Place Award so that Brynn can't just let the thread go, goes to Master Jedi, for:

cardybeez (Car- Dee - Bees) - The instant empathetic wince that occurs uncontrollably at the sight of another person getting hurt. also. Shortened to Cardy.

As Dave watched the people from Jackass maul themselves he cardied they seemed to break hundreds of bones.

The First Place Award and The Alliteration Award, along with a bag of Marcus's Patented Contemptuous Sneers for her to use when she runs out of Snide And Snarky Remarks, go to Brynn for:

vicaricringe - the instant empathetic wince that occurs uncontrollably at the sight of another person getting hurt.

The fascinated infomercial audience watched the perky spokesmodel struggle to demonstrate how the Deluxe Kitty Toilette worked on the feisty tabby she was stroking, but an intense vicaricringe rippled through the crowd as they witnessed the agitated cat suddenly sink both paws into her face and refuse to let go.

Take it away Brynn!

How very random, but fun. Thank you Marcus. You're a clever man. I'm going to have to give this some careful thought.

Okay, a new word is needed for this definition:


What happens when you've spent hours organizing a desk area or kitchen pantry and hours later, opposing forces of violence and chaos in the form of lazy teens or spouses swoop in to sabotage it.
