Prolagus commented on the word fufluns
I won't read it. I need a madeupical definition for this word.
reesetee commented on the word fufluns
I say we should call our madeupical Wordie cupcakes this.
I think Wordie cupcakes are actually called fufluns. Aren't they?
Yes. Yes, of course. Then it's true. That's what they're called.

bilby commented on the word fufluns
*lays a field of lamb mimes around the Secret Hiding Place of Umbrage*
OOOPS, wrong battle front! *steps on a lamb mime and explodes in gesticulatory bleating*
*hands bilby some Gas-X so he won't explode anymore*
Pheww! No wonder they call them green bear-ets! Did you see the way she stepped in, fearlessly, risking being turned to lamb's fry in the heat of battle?! Baaad aaaass manoeuvre!
Hey, when a bilby's life is in danger from gesticulatory bleating from lamb mimes, it doesn't matter whose side he's fighting on.
We're all mammals, after all.

Today, I went to a lecture on human population genetics and they were talking about the Etruscans, so the slideshow included a map of Etruria including Fufluna. I could barely contain myself.
May 23, 2009
Ha! Life imitates Wordie!
I guess that was an Etruscan town (or area) where the worship of Dionysus was centered...? How todally alsome.
Pro: Were you dying to post here about it? Don't you hate when you don't have a Wordie nearby with whom you can exchange knowing looks?
C_b, I think you should bracket "Life imitates Wordie."
May 26, 2009
I was! I wanted to toss fufluns at everybody around me!
May 27, 2009
Fufluna must be where they make all the fufluns! *wonders how to get there, and if they sell at outlet prices*
rolig commented on the word fufluns
Fufluna is only 6 1/2 hours away from me! (Etruscan Fufluna is Italian Populonia.) I've got directions and I'll soon be on my way.
*eagerly awaits report*
How do you guys pronounce this? I'd been using short u for both since I first saw this, but it occurred to me the other day that the humour value is greatly increased with a long u in the first syllable. I don't know how to use IPA...
June 4, 2009
Click the Forvo button for my pronunciation. I assumed a Latin pronunciation (Fufluns "was adopted by the Romans", according to the Wikipedians).
I like the long-u sound better, but in my mind, I usually say it with a short u.
On a side note, is Pro's Forvo prowess not the greatest thing since Fufluns? :)
On another side note, I'm now wondering if we are angering the gods. *refuses to say more because she might accidentally break Pro's heart*
June 5, 2009
Ede deos tuos. Eat Fufluns!
We must move some pronunciations here.

This page is on the first page of Google results for "fufluns". Isn't it great? Let's help it reach the top.

Okay. How about: fufluns help reduce belly fat. Huh?
I thought they increased it.
mollusque commented on the word fufluns
Pro, you've taken fufluns back into Wordnik through the Twitter sidedoor.
The best thing would be to start taking photos of cupcakes and tagging them fufluns on Flickr.
The best thing would be to start manufacturing and mass marketing.
I want a "got fufluns?" T-shirt for Wordnik.
See Fufluns for photos.
Me too, Pro. Where do we place an order?
*sips from Wordie crappuccino mug*
The best thing would be to create a hashtag on Twitter to make #fufluns a trending topic.
December 10, 2010
Ruz, your photos are visible here as well now!
I like fufluns in the springtime....
I like fufluns in the fall...
Dontcry, do you like fufluns in the winter, when it drizzles?
December 11, 2010
I like fufluns in the drizzly wintertime most of all"

How about in the summer, when it sizzles?
I'd like mine with grape riffles, please.
January 26, 2011
Does anybody have a recipe for the real Wordie fufluns? Something not too sweet if possible - something that would make a good breakfast for a certain challenge...
February 3, 2011
It would have to be dairy-, egg-, and cruelty-free (except for the part where we throw them at each other).
The grape riffles shouldn't be too hard to get this time of year.
Are they ever?
Watch out for those grape riffles. You can break a tooth.

blafferty commented on the word fufluns
Visuals for this = awesome. But no grape riffles.
