Created by: ErWenn

Pronunciation: /ˈfɝbl̩diˌgʊk/

This is another one that sounds better out loud than it looks written down. - ErWenn, 2007-06-08: 04:00:00

Looks fine to me. Gobbledygook is more fun to pronounce than it is to read, as well, but what a useful word. - Clayton, 2007-06-08: 04:37:00

Cute word ErWenn! - purpleartichokes, 2007-06-08: 04:43:00

It reminds me of the little presents our cats leave when they're shedding - usually found by unsuspecting bare feet in the middle of the night - Jabberwocky, 2007-06-08: 15:03:00

This is why all my cats are shorthairs, Jabberwocky. - ErWenn, 2007-06-08: 23:47:00

I'm addicted to Arrested Development. - jadenguy, 2007-06-08: 09:25:00

perhaps i should change my sentence since i've gotten no attention for a clearly awesome word... - jadenguy, 2007-06-08: 11:26:00

Awww, don't pout! Here's some attention... ATENTION PEOPLE! PLEASE CHECK OUT JADENGUY'S WORD. IT'S QUITE LOVELY. Better? - purpleartichokes, 2007-06-08: 11:38:00

actually, i'm smiling a bunch now. that was amusing! thanks. - jadenguy, 2007-06-08: 12:12:00

sorry jadenguy - there are just so many good words today and yours is definitely a great one - Jabberwocky, 2007-06-08: 12:37:00

i was just joking because my sentence is terribly esoteric, nominally tangentially related to the word, and the product of a lot of allusionary jokes. purpleartichoke did get me to chuckle, so all's well that ends with laughter. - jadenguy, 2007-06-08: 15:03:00

hehe to that sentiment - Jabberwocky, 2007-06-08: 15:05:00

hehe to that sentiment - Jabberwocky, 2007-06-08: 15:05:00

there must be a problem with the comment button today - it seems to be rePETitive - Jabberwocky, 2007-06-08: 15:22:00
