    August 7, 2008

  • For others who were curious about the method of torture referred to: "Procrustes (the stretcher), also known as Damastes (subduer) and Polypemon (harming much), is a figure from Greek mythology. He was a bandit from Attica, with a stronghold in the hills outside Eleusis. There, he had an iron bed into which he invited every passerby to lie down. If the guest proved too tall, he would amputate the excess length; victims who were too short were stretched on the rack until they were long enough. Nobody ever fit in the bed because it was secretly adjustable: Procrustes would stretch or shrink it upon sizing his victims from afar."
    From Wikipedia, naturally.

Although it is a universally loved foodstuff and an actively traded commodity, the creature itself is regarded with contempt by the races that consume it."

  • Ratcatcher: Oh, I gather you've got a little rodental problem.
    Mrs Concrete: Oh, blimey. You'd think he was awake all the night, scrabbling down by the wainscoting.
    Ratcatcher: Um, that's an interesting word, isn't it?
    Mrs Concrete: What?
    Ratcatcher: Wainscoting ... Wainscoting ... Wainscoting ... sounds like a little Dorset village, doesn't it? Wainscoting.
    Cut to the village of Wains Cotting. A woman rushes out of a house.
    Woman: We've been mentioned on telly!

  • I've also heard it used to mean general behaviors (such as wearing a baseball cap backwards for 80s hip-hop kids), and not just phrasing.

    December 27, 2007

  • This is an awesome word. I totally thought it was an H.P. Lovecraft creature when I first heard it.

    THAT MAKES IT EXTRA AWESOME

    February 1, 2007

  • OH GOD!

    February 1, 2007

  • I think that Ryan has an account here, 'cause I emailed him about the site early on. But it seems he has better things to do than play around on Wordie... Alas.
    Anyway, cool list, I might start one as well.

    February 1, 2007

  • Great list. Favorited.

    February 1, 2007

  • Damn you nkocharh! I came here just to mention that line, thereby impressing the entire internet with my leet knowledge of counter-culture heroes. But I guess you're 51 days leeter than I.

    Seriously though - best Gorey line ever.

  • Some folks like water
    Some folks like wine
    Well I like the taste
    Of straight strychnine

    You may think it's funny
    That I like this stuff
    But once you've tried it
    You can't get enough

    Wine is red
    Poison is blue
    Strychnine is good
    For what's ailing you

    If you listen to what I say
    You'll try strychnine some day
    Make you cough it'll make you shout
    It'll even knock you out

    -The Sonics, "Strychnine"

    January 17, 2007

    January 17, 2007

  • One devoted to apathy.

    January 17, 2007

  • So what's the monthly equivalent of this word, anyway?

  • It's like thing, fuck, stuff, and dude all in one!

  • It's also what you should watch out for when driving on certain roads: http://safety.fhwa.dot.gov/roadway_dept/retro/sign/presentation04/images/slide0016_image030.jpg

    My family has a running joke whenever we see one of these signs: "Ew! I stepped in ped!"

    Yeah, my family's pretty lame. :D

    January 12, 2007

  • I use it both ways myself.

    January 12, 2007

  • Tinny! Tin tin tin!

    January 12, 2007

  • That comment you left on my list really pisses me off. Mostly because I wish I was that clever. Bastard.

    January 12, 2007

  • Geeeelfliiiiiiing!

    January 12, 2007

  • Retiree visiting the office: I was working on the windows and running around the yard with my caulk in my hand, and I have this neighbor, Dave, who was standing in the bushes, and I didn't see him. But Dave scared me and there was caulk everywhere -- caulk all over the windows and caulk on my hands. No, I'm serious, there were inches of it coming out! You guys aren't even listening to me! I didn't know what to do about all of the caulk on my hands but I called the 800 number on the side of it and the guy said that friction could get it off.

  • A tool for those with little imagination.

    December 4, 2006

  • You left out my favorite: awesome.

    Although I suppose it's only more recently that it's become generally positive.

    December 3, 2006

  • All right! You're a king amongst men, John. It's amazing how quickly you've been adding features.

    December 3, 2006

  • "Pleat" is one of my favorite fashion-related words, you should add that. :)

    December 3, 2006

  • Geez, none of you guys capitalized it even!

    December 3, 2006

  • I'm pretty sure that us being the first people to argue about the definition of irony on this site makes us heroes of pedantry. :D

  • If he were going to the store to buy milk, riding a milk-powered car and eating milksicles then I'd say sure, it'd be ironic. Because there's an abundance of milk in the context. Just as this guy was looking for irony but was rendered unable to by a force which may or may not be ironic. That is, his not getting to the page isn't ironic, but his continued confusion because of his inability to access the page is.

    The section on the page that talks about comic irony also has some similar uses.
    "...an ironic situation might involve getting hit by a rib-delivery truck after trying to poison someone with bad rib-sauce in order to steal his or her gems,"
    "...a hapless cat is trapped against an inside house window, having to watch the once-in-a-lifetime consequences of a collison outside between a truck labeled "Al's Rodents," and another labeled "Ernie's Small, Flightless Birds.""

    December 3, 2006

  • Thanks! Nice resource, too; I'll have to bookmark that.

    December 3, 2006

  • Yeah, after looking at your LibraryThing and homepage I saw that. Neat stuff. More of a prose man myself. Anyway, keep up the listing as I'm enjoying it. ^_^

    December 3, 2006

  • I had a million dollars but I spent it all.

    December 3, 2006

  • Oh, my bad. Imploded heads are rarely any good. I was just curious if you did any amateur or professional work in fiction since I liked the sometimes surreal definitions from the list.
    That better?

    December 3, 2006

  • So what are the rules regarding the use of "although" vs. "though"?

    December 3, 2006

  • Vry clvr.

  • snikt?

    December 3, 2006

  • Really enjoying your imaginary words list, although I'd argue that if you're writing them they're not imaginary.
    Are you a writer?

    December 3, 2006

  • I'd argue it fell under the category of cosmic irony. From the aforementioned Wikipedia page:

    "Cosmic irony is a sharp incongruity between our expectation of an outcome and what actually occurs, as if the universe were mocking us."

    December 3, 2006

  • H'lo again, just thought I'd ask about the chances of a list re-sorting feature. That is, I'd like to change the order my lists appear in so that related lists which I created at different times are together and such. Not a particularly useful feature, but I've been noticing it's absence.

    Oh, and a really great but probably difficult to implement feature would be a way to track my comments as on Last.fm.

    Now, back to the addiction. :D

    December 3, 2006

  • <@ZoFreX> goddammit
    <@ZoFreX> I forgot the definition of irony
    <@ZoFreX> so I went to look it up on Wikipedia
    <@ZoFreX> but Wikipedia is down
    <@ZoFreX> AND I DON'T KNOW WHETHER THAT'S IRONIC OR NOT

  • I've started using this word to describe distortion-heavy garage rock a la Oblivians.

    December 3, 2006

  • OH SHIT WHO TOOK ALL MY GORM

    December 3, 2006

  • "Post" is probably my least favorite prefix. I like modernism, rock, and punk just the way they are, thanks; the claim that these "post-" genres go beyond it just seems like pretension to me. They don't call rock "post-jazz", after all.

    ... I only played the Troika computer game! Don't look at me like that!

  • Larry: Right, you. The one in the middle, what do you think?
    Second Writer: (panic) Er... er...
    Larry: Come on!
    Second Writer: Splunge.
    Larry: Did he say splunge?
    First and Third Writers: Yes.
    Larry: What does splunge mean?
    Second Writer: It means ... it's a great-idea-but-possibly-not I'm-not-being-indecisive!
    Larry: Good. Right. .. (to third writer) What do you think?
    Third Writer: Er. Splunge?
    Larry: OK...
    First Writer: Yeah. Splunge for me too.

  • onomatopoeia that best describes Leper-chan: kapow!

    December 2, 2006

  • A late night gaming-derived word. From "I cake your tookies", which was said in relative seriousness (in that I did not realize the transposed letters) and became a recurring phrase among my friends. Because they're jerks. :D

    December 2, 2006

  • "One who pushes babies." Derived from Perambulator.
