    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/cu...milies/lol.gif

    But what a great idea... classic COTH BB!

    Corene- I am requesting a full COTH BB Cultural Dictionary so that we all become more literate in the proceedings of COTH society http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...on_biggrin.gif

    Thank goodness we're finally going to have an "Official COTH BB Language Guide".

    How about a "Freekwently Mysspeld Wourd Gyde" too?

    And PLEEZE-The type has to be LARGE enough for those, that even though we can see 20/20 WITH our glasses on, can still see it without having to add a magnifying glass for further assistance.

    Hey Bugs, what about "The Plunger" ? Shouldn't that be on the list 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!!

    I give you the challenge of the day:
    write a paragraph, using all of the words/phrases on Coreene's list! http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...icon_smile.gif I'll start:

    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!!!
