  • *Rubs ankle*

  • This seems like one of those phrases where I have no idea what it means except that it's obviously likely to be something a wee bit lubricious.

    *Scurries off to do a little bit of internet searching*

    OK; now I'm officially confused. I mean, this link has to be a spoof, right?


    The first google hit for clam bump is something that calls itself a pornographic haiku. Pretty sad, since it would be hard to imagine 17 more anodyne syllables:

    I / love / clam / bump / ing

    I / love / clam/ bump / ing/ some / times

    But / not / all / the / time

    See how helpfully they separated out the syllables for ease of counting. Why do I have a mental image of whoever wrote that haiku as someone who's a bit of a mouth-breather, possibly given to correcting typos by applying White-Out to their computer screen?

    OK: it seems to be a term that's used to refer to lesbian sex, which is what I would have guessed. But yet again, reading the entry and its neighbors in the Urban Dictionary made me feel so contaminated that I had to go wash my hands.

    I hate the Urban Dictionary. I think at least half the entries in there are completely spurious, just involving people making stuff up to hoodwink other folks. Reprehensible behavior indeed. Nothing like that would ever happen at a respectable site like wûrd • ē. Right?

  • Sionnach, the site that you suspect of being a spoof might have confused molluscum, a viral disease, with mollusca.

  • Off-topic: that site is completely wrong about Typhoid Mary.

  • I am 99% convinced that site is a spoof. None of the links provided actually lead to any offsite links.

    December 28, 2008

  • Fair enough. It did appear to be just an archive, though--that might account for the links.
