Makes think of WHAT
By Douglas Adams and John Lloyd
On the other hand, the world is littererd with thousands of spare words which spend their time doing nothing but loafing about on signposts pointing at places.
Our job, as wee see it, is to get these words dow off the signposts and into the mouths of babes and sucklings and so on, where they can start earning their keep in everyday conversation and make a more positive contribution to society.
*And, indeed, in Liff.
Read and laugh a bit and if a word reminds you of someone or something in our little bloggy world, leave it in the comments
I will do a number, see if you can improve or find new ones that fit better. Please be honest and make shit up.
This: A: AASLEAGH (n.)
A liqueur made only for drinking at the end of a revoltingly long bottle party when all the drinkable drink has been drunk.
Makes me think of: B: Chatham Artillery Punch
A: AHENNY (adj.)
The way people stand when examining other people's bookshelves
Something which justifies having a really good cry.
The massive three-course midmorning blow-out enjoyed by a dieter who has already done his or her slimming duty by having a teaspoonful of cottage cheese for breakfast.
A rabidly left-wing politician who can afford to be that way because he married a millionairess.
