Have fun. Make up new words!

lipsgravatarDo you love having fun creating and using new words?

In these tight economic times it is more important than ever to find ways to unleash our inner comedian without spending a dime.

Thankfully, making up new words is still FREE (tax-free, calorie-free and fat-free).

Vocabularians Vocabucize

I consider myself to be a vocabularian (vocabularian, n.: one who makes up new words) because I love to vocabucize (vocabucize, v: the act of making up new words).

Did you know most new words are really old words hacked up and smashed together? Hack-em and smash-em! It is like a soap box derby with your dictionary.

In 5 Quick Ways to Get Your Giggle On I explained how much I love creating portmanteau words (pronounced port-man-toe). Ok, I didn’t actually use the term portmanteau because I am not that cool (or geeky) and secondly, I just learned about it in Wikipedia last week.  Wikipedia is an example of a portmanteau word because it combines the word “wiki” and “encyclopedia”.

Learn something new everyday dontcha?

GIGGLETON, n.: a person with the ability to makes others smile, laugh and be light-hearted.

FABULICIOUS, adj.: things, notably food items that are both fabulous and delicious. I sometimes use this word to describe inedible items like my new sparkly tees.

GROOVESSENCE, adj,: the basic, real and invariable nature of a person or object which is inherently awesome or totally cool.

FABULOCITY, v.: the quickness in which a person can transform from a messy slob* to amazingly and fashionably hot!  *[think of what you look like post-work out, before you pluck your eyebrows, shower, brush your hair and apply face paint, eh hem, I mean, make-up]

GIGGLICIOUS, adj.: a person or a thing that is cute, funny and positive.

FUNBELIEVEABLE, adj.: extremely enjoyable, amusing or pleasurable activity that is unlikely to be believed.

laugh off the bad stuff

Through the magic of cyberspace I met a fellow vocabularian, Eric Ruhalter. Eric is so passionate about creating new words that he actually sat down to write his own dictionary. He was inspired by his three kids to vocabucize by the precious, not so-precious and downright maddening moments of being a father. [Maddening moments was Eric's choice of words, not mine].

The KidDictionary: A Book of Words Parents Need But Don’t Have was born from Eric’s desire to help parents laugh rather than get upset in the face of the trials and tribulations of parenting. Eric’s motive for writing this dictionary embodies the “Don’t Give Up! Giggle On!” spirit. Kudos Eric!

You gotta laugh off the bad stuff. Writing a dictionary to help parents giggle and blow off some stream is a a groovilicious and gigglicious thing to do.

Excerpt from the Kid Dictionary

ORTHODONTREPRENEUR (ORR-tho-dahn-truh-prehn-ORR) n : – a child interested in knocking his own teeth out in the interest of a hefty payday from the Tooth Fairy. Inspiration for the word came from the mouth of Eric’s son:  “I think that if I knock all my teeth out I’ll be rich!”

INVISIBOOBOO (in-VIZ-uh-boo-boo) n: – The site on a child’s body where you unnecessarily applied a Band-Aid to appease them when they got hurt, though did not bleed.

Yo Eric, ever use Bacon Band-Aids on an invisibooboo?

THREEMAGEDDON (three-muh-GED-in)n.: – The supposed hellfire and brimstone that would erupt should an annoyed mother reach the third digit while counting aloud to 3 to get a non-compliant child to get his act together… “ONE !….TWOOOOOOO !!!!…..  ”

Politically Correct Holiday Party

Gala Christmas Party

Holiday Party

FROM: Tina Randolph, Human Resources Director

TO: All Employees

DATE: December 01, 2008

RE: Gala Christmas Party

I’m happy to inform you that the company Christmas Party will take place on December 23, starting at noon in the private function room at the Grill House.

There will be a cash bar! We’ll have a small band playing traditional carols…feel free to sing along. And don’t be surprised if our CEO shows up dressed as Santa Claus!

A Christmas tree will be lit at 1:00 pm. Exchanges of gifts among employees can be done at that time; however, no gift should be over $10.00 to make the giving of gifts easy for everyone’s pockets. This gathering is only for employees!

Our CEO will make a special announcement at that time!

Merry Christmas to you and your family,

Tina

RE: Gala Holiday Party

In no way was yesterday’s memo intended to exclude our Jewish employees.

We recognize that Hanukkah is an important holiday, which often coincides with Christmas, though unfortunately not this year. However, from now on, we’re calling it our “Holiday Party.”

The same policy applies to any other employees who are not Christians and to those still celebrating Reconciliation Day.

There will be no Christmas tree.

No Christmas carols will be sung.

 

We will have other types of music for your enjoyment but we will not play Adam Sandler’s Hanukkah song out of respect for Christians, Muslims, Zoroastrians, Presbyterians and so forth.

For the record, the Christmas tree was likely of Pagan origin and Christmas Day is probably the birthday of a Pagan sun god (worshiped by the Romans)….but it’s too late to quibble now. No tree.

Happy now?

Happy Holidays to you and your family,

Tina

RE: Holiday Party

Regarding the note I received from a member of Alcoholics Anonymous requesting a non-drinking table … You didn’t sign your name. I’m happy to accommodate this request, but if I put a sign on a table that reads, “AA Only“, you wouldn’t be anonymous anymore. How am I supposed to handle this? Somebody?

And sorry, but forget about the gifts exchange, no gifts are allowed since the union members feel that $10.00 is too much money and the executives believe $10.00 is a little chintzy.

REMEMBER: NO GIFT EXCHANGE WILL BE ALLOWED.

RE: Generic Holiday Party

What a diverse group we are! I had no idea that December 20th begins the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, which forbids eating and drinking during daylight hours. There goes the party!

Seriously, we can appreciate how a luncheon at this time of year does not accommodate our Muslim employees’ beliefs. Perhaps the Grill House can hold off on serving your meal until the end of the party or else package everything for you to take it home in a little foil doggy baggy. Will that work?

Meanwhile, I’ve arranged for members of Weight Watchers to sit farthest from the dessert buffet, and pregnant women will get the table closest to the restrooms.

Gays are allowed to sit with each other. Lesbians do not have to sit with Gay men, each group will have their own table. Yes, there will be flower arrangements for the Gay men’s table and cake balls on the dessert buffet. Feel free to bring your own rainbow flag. The Grill House will not provide them.

To the person asking permission to cross dress, the Grill House asks that NO cross-dressing be allowed, apparently because of concerns about confusion in the restrooms. Sorry.

We will have booster seats for short people.

Low-fat food will be available for those on a diet.

I am sorry to report that we cannot control the amount of salt used in the food. The Grill House suggests that people with high blood pressure taste a bite first. They do not use MSG.

There will be fresh “low sugar” fruits as dessert for diabetics, but the restaurant cannot supply “No Sugar”, “Stevia” or specific “Splenda” desserts. Sorry!

Did I miss anything?!?!?

RE: The  F#$**%#g Holiday Party

I’ve had it with you vegetarians!!!

We’re going to keep this party at the Grill House whether you like it or not, so you can sit quietly at the table furthest from the “grill of death,” as you so quaintly put it, and you’ll get your f*****g salad bar, including organic hydroponic tomatoes. But you know, tomatoes have feelings, too. They scream when you slice them. I’ve heard them scream. I’m hearing them scream right NOW!

The rest of you weirdos can kiss my butt.

I hope you all have a rotten holiday! Mine is ruined.

RE: Tina Randolph and Holiday Party

I’m sure I speak for all of us in wishing Tina Randolph a speedy recovery and I’ll continue to forward your cards to her.

In the meantime, management has decided to cancel our Holiday Party and give everyone the afternoon of the 23rd off with full pay.

Happy Holidays! (unless that offends you)

Joan

  • Special thanks to my fabulicious friend, Kim, for forwarding this funny holiday e-mail.  I made a couple of artistic Giggle On! changes with links and photos but for the most part, it’s similar to how I received it.  I would love to give credit to who wrote it – if anyone knows, please contact me.

Since I am not politically correct, I wish you all a very Gigglicious and Merry Christa-mas, ooops, Merry Christmas and Buono Natale (that’s the Italian Ho Ho Ho).
