Pronunciation: goo-guh-lue-gus

Sentence: Cynthia's husband gets so embarrassed when she starts the googoologos when they have company over at their house. Cynthia just goes into this other mode when the dog, Lucy, comes around. No matter how much he tells her how absurd she sounds, googoologos is a refined mode of communication for her and her dog. He's started to keep lucy behind a baby gate in the back bedroom when the guests are there. That way, Lucy is out-of-sight, out-of-mind, and they can have adult conversations with their guests. And no one gets embarrassed.

Etymology: Goo-Goo= baby talk + logos= words, logic

I guess everybody's creative juices are flowing since the weekend is upon us. Contentment envelops us like a warm wind on a brisk morning stroll.

It really was hard to choose. Petois just had that touch of class.

Toronto’s venerable “Mop & Pail” as the paper is affectionately known, is what led me to Verbotomy on Friday. My first instinct was to submit “Doggerel” then realized that it was in no way sufficiently twisted to survive! I’m looking forward to a lotta laffs with this!

Dang, I just came up with a much better word, and it's too late for me to enter it: gerbilish!
