not sure if i spelled it correctly. i first heard it on Red Dwarf, a late 80's-early 90's Britcom. since RD was famous for made-up words, i'm not sure if this is a real word or another bit of Red Dwarvian creativity.
yes, yes it does. thanks for the prompt! smeg seems to have been an all-purpose word on Red Dwarf. it would replace shit and fuck a lot and then there was the odd "Smeg-a-roonie" from Rimmer once or twice. oh darn! i'll just have to watch Red Dwarf until i can find that quote again! ;-)
the smaller type on top for the lists is good, but i was in a hurry last night at work to find a list and it was harder to read. on the other hand, the smaller type *is* more aesthetically pleasing. the best solution would probably be for me to get newglasses. ;-) (yes, i ;-) with impunity.)
as for guidelines, i have to vote for the anarchy rules. one of the biggest joys of this site for me, has been finding all these silly, made-up words that other people have come up with. (with cuntificate and gaytard high on my list) and if i knew how to link from the comments, i'd link to Thunderfoot's Characters for a Jewish Star Wars as a really hellacool example of creative wordie-ing.
as for features, how about some sort of voting thingy for each word page? (overheardinnewyork.com's "thumbs up" and "thumbs down" comes to mind) something where we could vote for favorites and see the results on the words' page. x people voted (positive response), y people voted (negative response) out of z total responses would be nifty.
another one that comes to mind is the ability to do wildcard searches for words. i don't know if a wiktionary would be practical (since my programming knowledge is nil plus zero) but it'd be fun to do a search for aa* (or whatever) to see how many words beginning with the letters "aa" (or whatever) are in wordie at any given moment.
again, if i haven't said it recently, a huge THANKS for everything you do, John! this site is really a ton o' fun and i can't thank you enough for creating it.
communist? crotch? dammit!janet, now i'm going to have to make a whole new list. ;-) (and cuntificate *has* to go at the top of it. i love that word!)
seriously though... there are a ton of them i could use, but i'm looking for slang words that are also used for other objects and/or concepts. the idea came from one of George Carlin's bits where he talks about the Seven Words you can't say on tv. i've forgotten most of it, but the phrase "I'm going to snatch that pussy and shove it in a box stuck with me.
and... yeah. quim amuses me too. though my favorite is "lunch at the Y". ;-) i'm always happy to have new slang and/or euphemisms!
thanks for the pecker, DreamieGrl! erm, well, you know what i mean. ;-)
thanks for the link, angharad! i'm only up to the E's and ... i'm in awe. who knew? favorites that are too long to list for wordie (my opinion): Eight inches of pink throbbing Jesus, Hammer of Thor (there's an old joke with that one), He Who Must Be Obeyed (i think i used to date him) and Honk the Magic Goose.
whenever you get around to it... is there anyway to make a text field that would go at the top? something we could use to add a list definition (if wanted or needed) at the top would be nice. please? :-)
Minnesota, southern Minnesota and Rice County Minnesota words. things i've overheard locally in others' casual conversations. words that you wouldn't expect to hear in this area, but that i have heard utterred out loud. in public. words that we use on a regular basis that amuse me.
there's this guy i've known since the late 80's-early 90's that is the definition of an anal-snapping lemonass. and yes, my friends and i did everything humanly possible to make his anus snap. and we made it snap very LOUDLY. ;-)
by and large, this is where these sets of words comes from. we love him dearly and he really is a good sport about all of this.
