tiggytig commented on the word higgildy piggildy
Actually I did some investigation!
As it now turns out, the term higgledy-piggledy refers to the creature (now extinct) known as the higgildy piggildy, genus Sephriprudinus chronomoronus, and it's extinction should come as no surprise when you understand that it was a strange beast who's burrow was constantly and unforgivably messy, and for whom it had no friends as it was chronically incapable of ever being on time. (Archeologists have determined that this was due to an inability to ever set their watches properly.)
Language is a strange wobblegonger. o_O
There's never a better time to start! ^_^
tiggytig commented on the word wigglebop
While more commonly known as a nickname that you should not give to an axe-wielding, loincloth-wearing barbarian warrior with bulging thews, less commonly known is the fact that a wigglebop is also the small tremory dance of excitement (with quickly-raised clenched fists) that you do when you your best friend comes online.

tiggytig commented on the word froglet
Colloquially applied to just adolescent frogspawn who have transcended the tadpole phase and resemble more accurately the true frog shape, but tinier.
The true literal term, however, encompasses frogs at the tadpole phase as well.
Also can be used to describe a dollop of sour cream only when it is being applied to a delicious chicken fajita:
Correct - "Please apply a froglet of sour cream to my delicious chicken fajita."
Reaction - You will be regarded highly by friends and peers

tiggytig commented on the word snuzzle
Snuzzling, the action whereby one snuzzles, is most often performed in the fur of an adorable pet or stuffed animal, or commonly into the snuggly non-erotic crevice of a loved-one.
The action is performed thusly:
1. Place face directly into desired snuzzling area.2. Rapidly shake your face left and right while maintaining, and even slightly increasing, contact pressure.3. Emit highpitched giggling or nonsense phrases such as "nom nom nom" or "snoogy woogy woogy!"4. Continue ad nauseum until exhaustion or the expenditure of the patience of the one being snuzzled.
2. Rapidly shake your face left and right while maintaining, and even slightly increasing, contact pressure.

tiggytig commented on the word snurf
Snurf is a portmanteau of the words snuzzle and turf, which together are described as an area of fur on a cat that is created when the cat curls up on its side to sleep, and it highly prized as an area to snuzzle. Most commonly an assemblage of tummy and leg fur, this can easily encompass any combination of the prior in addition to neck, head, and tail fur.
October 22, 2008
A snurfle is the complex action whereby you rub your face back and forth into the sleeping tummy (i.e. snurf) of, for example, a sleeping cat or kitten, making snuzzle noises for the entirety.
The twist is that you then concomitantly lift both the head and rear of the animal effectively creating a panoramic mask of snurfability. Obviously this would exclude the commonly snuzzlable human element, though this author certainly would not discourage you from trying.
Theoretically this action could continue indefinitely, although the duration will only be equal to the patience of the cat or animal in question, with a drastic reduction thereof in comparison to a standard snuzzle.

gin·ger /ˈdʒɪndʒər/ jin-jer –noun
A person of pale yet muddled (freckled) complexion, therewith born with red, but truthfully bright orange or ginger, colored hair. Although often subclassified as a redhead, this genus is technically a distant relative to the redhaired subspecies of human.

tiggytig commented on the word frumpous
When you cause a frumpous, you are effectively interrupting and overruling all other activity in a room or conversation via performing something outrageously cute. (most often involving, or initiated by, kittens.)
Everything at the party was in full swing, and Billy was just about to talk to Suzie, when everyone's attention was suddenly and unequivocably diverted to that annoying ginger Chucky, as he pulled 3 kittens from his pocket and began to juggle. It was a complete frumpous.
