Franklify (verb) : To take a self-contradictory position only in order to upset cathar.

To defend the BOE on grounds of its authority surely franklifies the issue, doesn't it?
Appletonne (noun) : A metric system measurement of the crushing weight of one's own moral superiority.

A truckload of gay ketubahs weighs approximately one appletonne.
Wallerooting (verb): to loudly cheer for a sporting team you have no allegiance to.

When his team lost a game he just began wallerooting for the other team.

I'm still upset that Kinkade peed on Pooh.

I'm not letting go of this one.

This may be new to some of you:

Affluenza (noun) A term used to describe the sickness of throwing money at your kids instead of listening to them.

"The kids tried to get their father's attention at the bar with bratty behavior, but caught in the grips of affluenza, he merely peeled off a wad of yuppie singles and gave it to his kids, muttering something about the movies."

This just in from cnn.com, regarding college kids who set fire to 10 churches in Alabama: "one of the students said the fires began as a joke that got out of hand."

This reminded me of the PHT controversy, where several kids said that the adults should lighten up, that PHT's lyrics were just a "joke."

Makes me wonder if this younger generation has a different definition of the word "joke."

Wow, ROC, you sure hold a grudge.

Trent: I wrote about this on my blog. Tried to wait till my anger subsided a bit but I don't think it has. So be it.

Miss M - can you tell me the URL or include a link? I'd like to read it ...

(I know the address was published here before, but am not sure where to find it)

Thanks -

I really shouldn't have to explain this one to anyone who's been paying attention.

Not to be confused with catheterize or cauterize, although the experiences may be similarly uncomfortable for the recipient.

Posted by: crank | Mar 8, 2006 6:43:26 PM

Trent: Just click on my name.

" Just click on my name."

I'm getting a 404....

"He said the three had been out shooting deer in Mr. Cloyd's S.U.V. prior to the fires."

Hunting, SUVs, arson, pranks that get out of hand....

Welcome to my nightmare.

ROC (verb): To argue a point of principle or ideology to absurd lengths.

President Bush declared that he was going to ROC the war in Iraq even if it bankrupted the country and failed to deter Al Qaeda.

Martta - ewwww.....to the marzipan babies!!

Tell me about it! Where does she (my cousin) find this stuff? Ick!

Posted by: Miss Martta (8T) | Mar 8, 2006 9:10:39 PM

a sound recording is not anywhere near the same league as 10 arson attacks.

So a father finds out from a neighbor that his son is doing cocaine.

Irate, the father storms into the son's room and says "If I catch you doing that stuff I'll rub your nose in it!"

"I'm getting a 404...."

Call me when you get a "409, 409..."

So I'm in my pediatrician's office today - in Monclair, no less - with my daughter and her ear-ache and I pick up a copy of People (March 13th) and I see a pic of our very own Barista and her novel!

Hey...I know that woman! :)

Irate: The new Middle Eastern country formed by Iranians overrunning Iraq.
