C'mon Correne, now you have to define them all! I know most of 'em, but there's a couple stumpers in there... I'm sure you'll get lots more questions on these http://chronicleforums.com/images/custom_smilies/lol.gif

How about a "Freekwently Mysspeld Wourd Gyde" too?

The Porch??? I'm familiar with all the others, (remember, I have the plunger in storage, if anybody needs it). But I don't recognize that one! those who have contributed to the list must be very proud, indeed. It's an accomplishment to be likened to no other. Imagine, the hushed awe you'll get when you say, I coined that term!!!I can only hope to one day, follow in the hallowed footsteps of the brave souls who have gone before, with their literary mutations posted in full view of those terrible COTH critics, the dreaded SPELLING POLICE!!

OMGiH! I am aghasted that the stinking flounder has been plunged into Aunt Esther's purse. HOO HOO, (this always reminds me of Calvin and Hobbes), le tit be that we be dranken on the porch while lunching on trout, baby carrots, and baby quiche. I mean to say, Where's the Fruitbat???!!!Doesn't everyone Loff to nump and fing with the plunger, while beaver drilling, because of the Inverness Problem??? This it be wrong, that your personal undergarments be so attackative. I haff TOLED you this manny times!!!

aghasted - well, I’m not gonna go there...

Nump and Fing (http://chronicleforums.com/groupee/forums?a=tpc&s=6656094911&f=2096094911&m=860603651&r=860603651#860603651)

Coreene
Jan. 26, 2005, 07:50 AM
A brief overview, not all of 'em:

nump - "Does he nump with his socks on?"
toled - "Heidi toled both those guys at the same time, she's such a tart!"
Inverness Problem - "I need some new riding underpants, because I've got a really bad Inverness Problem"
attackative - "stop being so attackative"
aghasted - "Beezer aghasted me and didn't even say 'excuse me'!"
le tit be - "I wish she'd stop bring up the whole 'aghasted' thing, it's time to just le tit be."
this it be wrong - "Horse slaughter, this it be wrong."
Aunt Esther's purse - "That BBer deserves a good smack with Aunt Esther's purse!"
where's the fruitbat? - "The horse was dead, and now he's not? Where's the fruitbat?!"
the porch - "Time to sit on the porch and watch this trainwreck unfold."
trout - "She needs a good whack with a dead fish! Bring me a trout!"
dranken - "At World Cup in April, I am sure I will be driven to dranken. Why, I could use a dranken right now."
stinking flounder - "Sadly, it turned into stinking flounder and we had to put him down."
loff - "I loff you, you loff me, we're a happy family."
OMGiH - "Oh mein Gott in Himmel!"
HooHoo - "All-day numping can give you an Inverness Problem and chap your hoohoo."
hoochie bucket - "Sometimes, instead of putting the spankmonkey in the virginia, they use a hoochie bucket instead to collect the baby dust. The money is used for the Karroten Fund."

(Applause breaks out) Wonderful job, Coreene. You might have even avoided having this thread rated "R".

The only one that might still mystify is "Where's the fruitbat?". In case someone hasn't already posted the origin, I believe it came to life after an agitated poster peppered her reply with "WTF". As this is a very polite group, it was felt that the only possible meaning was "Where's the fruitbat?". Now whose was the brilliant mind who came up with that?

By the way, I'm agitating for Le Tit Be to be handled in the opposite way and become LTB.

And a quick review of some of the threads from which these gems derive makes me long for a book of Willem's wit and wisdom and more of RAyer's pulp fiction.

Ahhh .. man.. I can go even farther back.. for the origin of COTH phrases..

Allie (ally?) for the short used term "pull an Ally Carnegie" which led to the "don't feed the trolls" policy initially, I believe.

Pink Pills/Pink Pony (not the current COTH member pink pony http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif ) ie: "who got the pink pills I think I need a few" "I"m all out of pink pills"

The original Ghosts in the Barn thread ie: "maybe it's ghosts" wink wink nudge nudge for any unexplained training problem for like a whole year http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Hoochie Bucket, Spankmonkey, Virginia (courtesy of Willem):

Mein little Ducster, now you be fourteen months old! Und becose your life wot it be being ein daddy horsje, here be der instructiones.

Mein selve I haff all ways finded mares wot they be ein different species. Kind off like Arabians. Mannie time they don't nott to know iffen they be coming or going. There be this man called Reggie Mate wot he come and talk to them some times und tell them to get mit der program aber usually this it usually don't nott to work.

Mares wot they haff baby horse eggs in their virginia. The virginia it haff opening under der tail in der middleburg between butt cheeks. Wenn you be going to make baby horse wot it be like this. You look at mare und say "Hallo mein schatzi, do you want ein poke?" Mares wot they loff to haff ein poke.

You should be doing this mit der bodyguard wot also be called handler. Becose other wise mares they come after you und they want to haff relationship und they want to marry you und they want you to buy them mannie things und share your karroten mit you. Und this it be wrong.

Any ways, wenn you ask her if she want ein poke, die mare she right a-way will sticken her tail up und say "JA, JA, JA, JA, JA!!!" Just like wenn Meg Ryan haff beed in der delicatessen on Wenn Harry Meeted Sally. Then it be time to giff her ein poke. You get behind her und jump on her sitzen und putt der spankmonkey in der virgina. Der spankmonkey it all ready know that you be doing this und it be stiffy. Die mare she haff dreams then von shopping und credit cards wot you pay der bill for.

Der spankmoney for like some time in between ten seconds und ein hour (mein wot it be ein hour), it work und then it start to tickle. It feel like toe part von your hoofes they curl und you scream "AY CARAMBA!!!" Your tail it whip up und down.

Then you haff organism, get off die mare, go home und go to sleep. Some times they want to haff cigarette aber der best thing to do is loff them und leave them.

Und then wenn you haff doed this, baby dust it haff comed out off your spankmonkey und it go to der baby horse eggs, und then ein few weeks later die mare she get verrie fat und then one morning she wake up und there be ein baby horse in her howse. This it means she haff folded.

Iffen you don't want to haff no baby, you haff poke in ein condominium. Und some times der chaperone they let you practice mounting wenn you use AI machine, wot it also be called Hoochie Bucket. Then they sell baby dust for mannie dollares und put der money in die karroten fund.

You all ways haff to say "please" und "danke schon." Becose it be verrie muy importante to be ein gentleman.

Loff Willem.

The fruitbat thing actually came up when someone said "WTF?" - and (I think) someone else didn't know what it meant. Or somehow alternative meaning for it were solicited.

To which I randomly responded - WTF?="Where's the fruitbat?"

Apparently, it was popular. Hehehehe. I looked for the original topic, but gave up. The fruitbats have shown up many times since then, and even have names now.

The Porch was orginally invented on the old Equisearch bb, as were the pink pills, the rocking chair, and the wonders of baleing (baling?) twine and duct tape. They moved over here with the exodus when the old E-search boards exploded after a software/format change. They occasionally reemerge when old-E-searchers get together (such as the many-named one whose current incarnation is Onyx the Pony and me.) http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

What the Fruitbat came along when one lady was going on and on and on... ETC about how rude someone had been ot her, and though she repeatedly used WTF in her rant, she spent much of the rant complaining that this woman kept swearing at her, and she would NEVER swear because she doesn't use that kind of language.

To which, inevitably, someone asked 'Well what do YOU think 'WTF' means then?'

I was sitting on The Porch (1) with George Morris discussing whether it was worse to chip and peck or nump (2) and toled (3) to the stinking flounder (4) jump at Spruce Meadows. Suddenly, George started to swipe at his head in an aghasted (5) and attackative (6) way, shrieking in that revoled (7) way of his, "get Aunt Esther's purse (8), the fruitbats (9) have escaped from their hoochie bucket (10)!" I grabbed the nearest hoo hoo (11), thinking, 'le tit be (12)' a false alarm because George was quite allergic to fruitbats and left untreated often escalated into a full blown Inverness Problem (14), a potentially fatal gnome which was harder to cure than a beaver drilling (15) through peeps (15). I said a little pray, 'dear oh mein gott in himmel (16), I know they spank monkeys (17) in Virginia (18) with wedding tackles (19), but please, if you take the fruitbats away, I promise to never, ever, eat another baby (20).

le tit be - let it, indeed
this it be wrong - when it ain't right
Aunt Esther's purse - what you get smacked against your head if you're bad
where's the fruitbat? - what the fuh?
the porch - good place to sit and watch trainswrecks
trout - another head-smacking device
dranken - drinking, a drink, being drunk

But "dranken" came from some grammar/spelling challenged individual who used to post on Horse Care occasionally. No names, please! And Hoochie Bucket first arrived in Willem's instructions for Le Duc. And Willem never said "OMGiH" until Dorina said it first (he was originally of the "oh mein Gott" persuasion).

As I recall, there's both "attackive" and "attackative". I think attackative is used when someone is very, very attackive. My personal favorite.

The best thing about attackive, is the BB'er who originally coined the word still uses it on a regular basis, I believe, in all sincerity without tongue in cheek.

"snark" is a Real Word!

Savaged by the snark

Clive James
Tuesday September 9, 2003
The Guardian

The recently published ninth edition of the excellent Chambers Dictionary, which has always prided itself on keeping up with new words, gives only one meaning for the noun "snark". It's "an imaginary animal created by Lewis Carroll". The 10th edition might well carry a second meaning: "an adverse book review written with malice aforethought." If the dictionary were compiled on historical principles, like the Oxford English Dictionary, it might mention that the word "snark" was first used in this sense by Heidi Julavits in a long and fascinating article about book-reviewing which she published in the US magazine the Believer. Elsewhere in the literary forest, Tibor Fischer recently launched a savage attack on Martin Amis's Yellow Dog, describing it as "not-knowing-where-to-look bad"; Jonathan Myerson has written a scalding review of Douglas Kennedy's new novel A Special Relationship, while Dale Peck, writing in the New Republic, attempted to bury Rick Moody's novel The Black Veil under an avalanche of abuse. Generating a small but widely reported kerfuffle, this last event was one of the stimuli for Julavits's contention that the killingly personal review might be reaching such epidemic proportions that it needed its own monosyllabic name, like plague.
Plausibly claiming to have identified an industry-wide rise in the prevalence of a snide tone, she called such a review a "snark". Since the noun derives from the accepted slang adjective "snarky", one would have thought it a rather understated label for an attack whose intent is often not merely snide but outright murderous. Better acquainted with the concept of gangsterism in public life, the Germans call a killer review a rip-up and the Italians a tear-to-pieces. But this new, English word is probably violent enough, and it certainly captures the essential element of personally cherished malice.

The desire to do someone down, or indeed in, is the defining feature. Adverse book reviews there have always been, and probably always should be. At their best, they are written in defence of a value, and in the tacit hope that the author, having had his transgressions pointed out, might secretly agree that his book is indeed lousy. All they attack, or seem to attack, is the book. But a snark blatantly attacks the author. It isn't just meant to retard the author's career, it is meant to advance the reviewer's, either by proving how clever he is or simply by injuring a competitor.

Back in the early 19th-century, the dim but industrious poet Robert Montgomery had grown dangerously used to extravagant praise, until a new book of his poems was given for review to the great historian and reviewer Lord Macaulay. The results set all England laughing and Montgomery on the road to oblivion, where he still is, his fate at Macaulay's hands being his only remaining claim to fame.

Across the pond, Mark Twain later did the same to James Fenimore Cooper. Making hilarious game of the improbabilities in Cooper's tales of arcane woodcraft, Twain's essays about Cooper have been American classics ever since. So have Cooper's novels, but only in the category of enjoyable hokum. After Twain got through with him, Cooper's prestige was gone.

When you say a man writes badly, you are trying to hurt him. When you say it in words better than his, you have hurt him. It would be better to admit this fact, and admit that all adverse reviews are snarks to some degree, than to indulge the sentimental wish that malice might be debarred from the literary world. The literary world is where it belongs. When Dr Johnson longed for his enemy to publish a book, it was because he wasn't allowed to hit him with an axe. Civilisation tames human passions, but it can't eliminate them. Hunt the snark and you will find it everywhere.

Perhaps it might have evolved into something like this:
*************************
Beavis and Butthead moment ... huh-huh ... you said BEAVER ... huh-huh-huh.
****************
Every time I see a new reply on the total count of this thread, I rush to it, practically giggling, thinking someone's gonna take the Beaver Drilling bait. Sigh. I am telling you, and seemingly only you, when Kachoo gets back she will clear up this Beaver Drilling fiasco and mark my words, numping will be behind it.
*******************
I see there is a need for my sophomoric humor and filthy mind...

All i know is I'm not going to take part in any beaver drilling unless there's some serious liquor involved...

liquor? You brought her here, you liquor...

thankyou thankyouverymuch
****************
I am SURE that there is a simple and clean explanation for "Beaver Drilling."

Although since beavers don't generally drill so much as gnaw, drag and stack, it's certainly difficult to imagine what the family-friendly explanation might be.
***********************
Don't forget that they like to work with wood(y)s! (regular arts and craft types, those friendly little woodland creatures, yes-siree)
**************************
Now listen here! I'm fine with the Dragging and Stacking, those, like all things, have their place. But that gnawing? I'm sorry, my mother brought me up better than that.
********************
As to the (in)famous Beaver Drilling.....

They are an oil related company in Alberta that sponsors a tonne of classes at Spruce Meadows. We, as riders, are very thankful for their continuing support to our sport.

hehehe ***snort*** Beaver drilling **snicker**
******************
Basically, Bentley, they're in the business of lubricant? I see.
************************
OK Bentley, what you are telling us is that there is (apparently) someone in Canada who named a company "Beaver Drilling. So how do those commercials go over on TV? Because what I am envisioning is quite over the top. Or should I say "under"?

I have to say that Corporate Culture has reached a new, ummm, depth for me.
**********************
and dmk, yes we have 'sunk to a new depth' with this thread!!!
**********************
sunk... yes, Bentley, "sunk" does describe the matter at hand. What with drilling companies and what not being discussed...
*********************
This thread is so great for two reasons:

1. It's like the red-light district of the BB. And that makes me so proud.

2. We really are eager to hear how Susie did. I hope that shines through. And why wouldn't it? Lubricated by Beaver Drilling!

(ba-dump-bump)
*******************
Not exactly the Marines, but...

We are the few, the proud... the indescribably gutter minded...

Thank heavens it is the red light district. I mean for a while I was really worried that the Canadians must have thought the beaver was something furry you wore on your head. Oh wait... I guess it can be...
**************************
You guys . . .

You have put me into a quandary - I would say that you're all the sweetest things ever (I was so excited to see this thread !), except that you are also the filthiest-minded little devils I have ever seen! I know, I know, Beaver Drilling . . . it was handed to you on a silver platter, how could you resist? Interestingly enough, this is the oil company who sponsored last year's "Strip Puissance,"
***********************
Kachoo...

Clearly we were diverted with the idea of nekkid jumpers when you last reported on this issue, but no such luck this time! (This does rather reaffirm exactly where are interests lie, though).

But I know you would have thought we were slipping from our high standards if we just let a hard nosed topic like Beaver Drilling just sink into the depths of obscurity, so to speak.
*************************

I think The Pie (on the Happy Times/dl thread) offered up another new COTH word: "adive" which was supposed to be "give advice."

In the spirit of Beaver Drilling, I think "adive" could figure in thusly: "I was utterly aghasted when, right before my blind date toled me, he inquired if I would give adive." http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

The first time I heard a reference to herding cats it was in a quote from Peter Norton who said something to the effect that 'administrating college faculty is like trying to herd cats." Not sure he came up with it originally. There was also a well-done commercial that was first aired during the Super Bowl a few years ago (post Norton quote). Can't remember the product, but it depicted a group of cowboy types turned cat-herders, complete with rolling yarn balls and treating their scratches.

Wedding Tackle (http://chronicleforums.com/groupee/forums?q=Y&a=tpc&s=6656094911&f=5566064631&m=3036041331&p=1). That was the first mention I could find of it with a quick search (yes, the search actually worked). It's the fifth post down on the first page of the thread. Pretty funny thread--starts out with someone asking for advice for their male friend who has just started to ride.

Um, I think there is a slight correction that's needed regarding the term "HooHoo"

I believe that refers to MARE naughty-bits, and opposed to HUMAN naughty-bits.

A sentence:

"If Frosty rubs her Hoohoo against that waterbucket one more time, I think I'm gonna heave."

Obviously, it would be a much different sentence if we replaced "Frosty" with ... say, well... do I really need to go on?

Technically, "wedding tackle" is not a COTH-ism exclusive. It's an old British euphemism for male genitalia. (Mike Myers used it in the first Austin Powers movie.) Still a great term though.

I actually did just spit my ice cream out at the image of Heidi rubbing her hoo hoo on the water bucket...

Especially in Canada where it is so cold right now that water buckets have got to be frozen and we all know what happens when you touch your, er, tongue to something frozen. http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_eek.gif

Next spring, when the temperature gets above freezing and Heidi can climb down off that water bucket, she will have quite a story to tell, I bet.

We have now a new unit of measurement. The rest of the world can use feet and meters. COTH can now measure things in units of "Heidi-hoo-hoo height". One unit of this height shall be deemed equal to two feet.

A friend of mine looked at a horse that was 2.5 HHH tall. I think it was a palozebrellalino, or something like that...When she test rode him, she rode in jeans and did alot of numping; she toled me she couldn't fing her breeches.

I'm sorry that Dillan has become so attackative towards you. You would think that he would be less of a beaver since he is hoo-less...perhaps he is not getting enough baby carrots?

Lovey Mae has been loffly lately, and I hope it stays that way for awhile. Spring is coming though, and you know that is the time that hoo hoo mares become ho hoo mares. Numping and finging thoughts just start running rampant through their heads. Lovey starts comparing her life of being a dressage horse to that of the broodmares eating alfalfa hay and thinks that this it be wrong!

She's lucky her virginia is where it is, so she doesn't end up with Inverness problems in her marital area. Tell her to keep her mind off of the finging and numping. Summer's right around the corner.

Jan. 27, 2005, 09:32 PM
Okay, so if the HO-HOs are at 48th St and the Pier, is it possible that the Ho Hoos are residing at Equine Reproductive Facilites?

Caren: Lovey Mae thanks you for your kind offer of access to Dillan's PayPal account. She says that that is more like it and perhaps she can put away the stinking flounder and Aunt Ester's purse.

I will do what I can to keep her mind off of numping and finging. It helps that she has a maiden virginia and and has no numping experience or Inverness problems.

Give Dillan a kiss for me...but remember that Lovey says that carrots are better than kisses (especially the baby kind).

Not being familiar with the finer points of wrecking and wreaking as they apply to hohoos and hoohoos (respectively), I would postulate that freezing a hoohoo to a water bucket would not only wreak havoc, it would wreck the hoohoo and most possibly, the water bucket.

I think we all need a new dispenser of denial floss.

As to "rode hard and put up wet". I don't think that pmc's statement can possibly be improved upon.

Now just for my reference, this thread has added the following to the lexicon:

denial floss
HHH: unit of measure
Ho-Hoos: the hoo-hoo's of self-employed women with very low overhead.
Frozen Ho-hos: can't even imagine what one would do w... {blush} nevermind.
Fruitbathead: all purpose cuss-word to be used on complete idiots (and any of my horses when they misbehave).

I was spectating at a show a while back and when the order of finish was called out someone in the audience was heard to say, "Where's The Fruitbat!?!?". I was going to make some reply but for some reason my eyes were shut with water running out and my abs were contracted into such a knot so that my diaphram would not let my lungs move enough air to make any sound but something that resembled a pulsating squeaky hinge.

I see. Sort of a verbal version of the COTH secret handshake. You were among friends; you just didn't know who they were! http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_cool.gif

Maybe what we really need is a ring. or an "old school tie". Maybe a pin in the shape of a gnome, holding a flamingo, with a bat or two fluttering at his head.

I'm waiting for someone to have the nerve to name their horse "Where's the Fruitbat?" Or at least suggest it on one of those endless naming threads.

How bout just Fruitbat? Or possibly Numping Fruitbat? Jumper division doncha know, and its Numping Fruitbat who jumps into the lead, with 61.070 seconds and a clear round!!

Ok, no, daring someone to name their horse Where's the Fruitbat is no good. The reason being is because I don't think the jumper, eventing or racing people would even blink at a name like that. Heck, I have a boarder at my barn who is an eventer, whose retiree's name is SNORT! &lt;snort&gt; (I like that name for that horse, BTW) No, the dare needs to be directed specifically at dressage and hunter riders. http://chronicleforums.com/images/custom_smilies/lol.gif Now THAT would be hilarious! I can see them scoffing now.

<span class="ev_code_RED">DISCLAIMER:</span> No offense is meant to anyone who does dressage or hunters. I did hunters and am now doing dressage. C'mon, admit it, they would be aghasted!

Yeah but one of the funnest things to do is aghasting dressage people.

They get so attacktive that they snort and their maskscary runs and they wouldn't never dare touch that trout.They just turn their deerhide covered hoo hoos around and call for their grooms by which time you can be long gone.

you think maybe I should have stayed on the porch? http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif

Actually, that is a very impressive division. Since one Heidihoohoo = 2', the 2.6 heidihoohoo division is for horses who can jump 5.2 feet.

Watermelons? Sounds very painful and vaguely reminiscent of childbirth. http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_eek.gif

OK, I admit it. I'm a member of The Full Seat Deerskin Covered Hoo Hoo Clique. Now how about a secret Fruitbat handshake (or gesture)? Maybe the COTHers could have a special hat with a fruitbat on it that has a tail.
