    Wasn't it revolved (instead of revulsed)? Forgot about that! http://chronicleforums.com/images/cu...milies/lol.gif

    Here are some:


    revoled (BigMick was right!) You know, I think aardvarkcaca is in there too.

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

    Nump and Fing


    Fruitbats (kinda):

    Inverness


    Spend some time in archives/favorites! Good stuff in there!

    Loff, OMGiH, stinking flouder and this it be wrong will all be explained in favorites too. I'm gonna make you read all of Willem's posts yourself!

    Can someone dig up the tee-shirt thread from about a year ago? Might explain a lot.

    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.

    I believe MistyBlue gets credit for the Fruitbats.

    I NEED a new hobby.. I can't believe I *know* all these plus their meanings, plus can somewhat recall the threads they've come out of.

    But this.... THIS: Sometimes, instead of putting the spankmonkey in the virginia, they use a hoochie bucket instead to collect the baby dust.. I just don't recall seeing it put that way before. I am ROTFL http://chronicleforums.com/images/cu...milies/lol.gif

    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_c...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_c...n_rolleyes.gif http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c.../icon_wink.gif

    The spankmonkey/virginia/hoochie bucket/karroten fund came from the time Willem explained the facts of life to Le Duc. It is in Favorites.

    Thanks Coreen, I'll have to go refresh my memory. I recall the phrass, just for some reason the 'Coreen's Digest Condensed Version' put it all together in the funniest way I think I've ever seen here!!
