  • I would not want to be the zookeeper at the zoo with Cthulhu's new loo. See World Toilet Day.

  • *gets voodoozoozoozooboobookraccoonnookkeeper tattoo*

    September 3, 2010

  • Still unpronounced?

    July 25, 2010

  • letsbeesbekeptkeeper, for instance

    July 24, 2010

  • PossibleUnderscore, you can be anything you like. I'm sure hernesheir and mollusque could find us some more monovocalic professions - beekeeper, or greegreekeeper, perhaps.

    July 22, 2010

  • Better to be a voodoozoozoozooboobookraccoonnookkeeper with a vuvuzela than to be a voodoozoozoozooboobookraccoonnookkeeperhoodoo, I always say.

    July 22, 2010

  • I am so confused. All these double letters and meanings are making my head spin. I'm glad I don't have to be a guru or hoodookeeper or--what was it?--a voodoozoozoozooboobookraccoonnookkeeper. I probably couldn't be one even if I wanted too.

    July 22, 2010

  • Thanks, hh. Just wait until I get my hands on a vuvuzela--I don't think there are any civil service exams to take before playing the Hoodoo Vuvuzuzu Blues.

    July 22, 2010

  • And if all that nonsense were to be left and forgotten upon a pedestal of stone and let to weather, it might be later be discovered and be called a voodoozoozoozooboobookraccoonnookkeeperhoodoo. You be the guru and hoodookeeper that finds, catalogs, and preserves them, zuzuzu.

    July 22, 2010

  • Oh, that's right! If I were to become a voodoozoozoozooboobookraccoonnookkeeper, I'm sure people would say "There goes that ruzuzu... she's always forgetting to check on the zun-zuns."

    July 22, 2010

  • What a hummer-dinger zuzuzu (zoo-zoo-zoo). It really zings!( as heinrich schutz sings 'zingen zingen')
    *getting confused with zun-zun* It is too darn hot in the sun sun sun.*

    July 22, 2010

  • And if the zoo had an aviary, one could also be a zoozoozookeeper or a boobookbookkeeper.

    Zoozoozookeeper is probably more fun--I hear voodoozoos require boobookbookkeepers to deal with a lot of paperwork.

  • *awestruck*

  • And if you were trying to cope with the conditions in Haiti by developing an addiction to candy, that might be your voodoozooraccoonnookkeepersweettooth.

    May 13, 2010

  • And if your raccoonnook was at the zoo in Haiti where they display the animals used in native hex rituals you'd be a voodoozooraccoonnookkeeper?

  • In a sane world, yes, the acronym would be shorter. But this is the federal government, don't forget, where No Acronym Can Be Too Long (NACBTL). Those in the know, however, call it the RacCivServ.

    You actually start at G-5, but you can go up to G-12 and you get locality pay. And, you know, all those federal holidays. Npydyuan, I think you'd like it.

    October 28, 2007

  • Wait, isn't the acronym actually USRCS? Also, can you be hired as a G-9 or above, or do you have to start at G-4 and get promoted?

    Edit: Ha! I read "USRNKCS" over again and it looked like ronks. Ha!

    October 28, 2007

  • I can tell you. First, you need to take your raccoonnookkeeper's civil service exam. If you score 700 or higher, you're eligible to be interviewed at your state's U.S. Raccoonnookkeeper's Civil Service (USRNKCS) employment office. If you're deemed qualified, you will be contacted when the next available position is open. You must serve at least one year as a Raccoonnookkeeper Apprentice (RA), then another as a Raccoonnookkeeper Intern (RI), before you can be certified as a Master Raccoonnookkeeper.

    Very stringent rules, as you might imagine for such an important position.

    October 28, 2007

  • So, npydyuan, do you think you have to go to school for this career? Get a certificate, maybe?

    What kind of classes do you think they offer on becoming a raccoonnookkeeper?

    October 27, 2007

  • I know what it means because I read the etymology. I think the average English speaker would have a difficult time parsing this word. Compound words in English pretty much max out at 2 pieces, bookkeeper, firehouse, lukewarm, all pairs. Of course, I have madeupicalized words that have far less reason for existence.

    October 27, 2007

  • Excellent career choice, npydyuan!

    October 27, 2007

  • At last, I know what I want to be when I grow up!

    October 26, 2007

  • *loves this word*

    October 26, 2007

  • seanahan : but you know exactly what it means, right? So, it's a specific word to describe a very specific idea. Which makes it legitimate, in my book. Besides which, the statement that English is not agglutinative cannot be entirely true, or the word "bookkeeper" would not be admissible.

    October 26, 2007

  • I just can't justify this word as existing. English is not agglutinative!

    October 26, 2007

  • At last, I can write that poem about the bookkeeper.

    October 26, 2007

  • Bookkeeper is (i think) the only word in the English Language that has three-sets of double-letters. Someone suggested subbookkeeper, which has 4 sets of double-letters. (i can't take credit for this word) but someone suggested that if you have raccoons and you keep them in a nook, then you would be a raccoonnookkeeper, which holds the record at 5 sets of double letters.
