w00t! First prize!
2002-02-04 01:44:03 AM  
wtf is a bed-blocker?
2002-02-04 01:44:58 AM  
So now it's Drew Curtis'

Sounds like "Don Kirshner's Rock Concert".

2002-02-04 01:48:21 AM  
I looked 'em up in my Funk & Wagnall to no avail
2002-02-04 01:48:41 AM

news to me too
2002-02-04 01:51:01 AM  
This is unnacceptable. I'm sending a marconigram to the editors right now.
2002-02-04 01:53:59 AM  

I noticed that too.

Drew's ego is getting the better of him.
2002-02-04 01:55:28 AM  
So, I'm a MVVD am I? News to me.
2002-02-04 01:56:31 AM  
Those olde tyme words are a lot better.

Who the hell would want to use an awkward (and fairly misleading) word like "Supermarket" when "Groceteria" is available?
2002-02-04 01:59:13 AM  
What about the ol' "DVDA"? That one should be in there.
2002-02-04 02:09:52 AM  
New favorite term: Eurocreep
2002-02-04 02:12:51 AM  
I thought bed blocker might be like "cock blocker" one who stops another from scoring, but I was wrong
2002-02-04 02:43:31 AM  
How about Assclown? That in there?
2002-02-04 02:47:58 AM  
Freakfoundation -
Yes, assclown is in there but, it just says "see listing under Tyson, Mike."
2002-02-04 02:53:52 AM  
"Misunderestimated" - adj. to underestimate to such a degree that your head is placed firmly up your ass. Originated 2001 - Bushism.

1996 alcopop

2001 B4

2002 MVVD

I guess I'm dumb. I don't know what any of these mean. Someone help me out.
2002-02-04 03:18:46 AM  
Zardoz, according to, alcopop is "British lemonade that is 4.7 percent alcohol".

No hits there for B4 or MVVD, but the latter is kinda defined in the original story.

BTW, thanks to QualityHelicopter for I'm adding it to my bookmarks.
2002-02-04 03:28:16 AM  
They add stuff like MVVD, which I have never even heard of before to the dictionary, but queef still is not listed. What is wrong with these dictionary editors? I thought almost everybody knows what a queef is, but look it up in any dictionary, and no entry. Some people try to tell me that it is spelled quif, which I think is incorrect. Regardless, I looked up quif and still no entry.

I want queef to be put in the dictionary! Time to go to
2002-02-04 03:48:22 AM  
queef, hehe
2002-02-04 03:53:00 AM  
It's a perfectly cromulent word.
2002-02-04 03:56:28 AM  
Silly mungs.
2002-02-04 04:09:45 AM  
I noticed it too, LayToob, but silently hoped it was an attempt at a joke....
2002-02-04 04:21:31 AM  
And on a side note, Lowtax already has started talking about Drew Curtis'
2002-02-04 04:29:22 AM  
Canada speaks better English from its ass than most Americans speak from their mouths.

You're wrong!!

2002-02-04 04:42:35 AM  
Christopher_Walken - I thought the exact same thing. =^)

And the day that a word like "queef" makes it into a dictionary is the day that I refuse to touch one. I'd like to have SOME bit of class left when it comes to dictionaries, thanks...
2002-02-04 04:49:11 AM  
Tucci's right, Canadians are pretty good at talking out of their collective ass...
2002-02-04 04:59:34 AM  
"newly acceptabled"?
2002-02-04 05:28:21 AM  
MVVD - aka male vertical volume drinker - isn't that really that quaint American frat device called a 'beer bong'?
2002-02-04 06:09:25 AM  
Dear The English-Speaking World,

You're welcome.

The English.
2002-02-04 06:16:22 AM  
Drew Curtis'


i want a t-shirt that says that - 'Drew Curtis''
2002-02-04 06:16:44 AM  
Drew Curtis'
2002-02-04 07:19:00 AM  
I thought Eurocreep had to do with the ever-diminishing size of thongs.
2002-02-04 07:21:24 AM  
Wherefore hast thou mocked the King's English? Know ye not that this be Drew Curtis', and none other? Be not a bed-blocker, thou churlish knave!
2002-02-04 07:22:32 AM  
What about AWP Whore or Wall Hacking camper?
2002-02-04 08:01:06 AM  
on c-span they show the british house of commons. it's actually really interesting. i learned last night what bed-blocking is. it's when elderly surgery patients can't get a bed in a nursing home, even though they've fully recovered. they're kept at the hospital (thereby taking up a bed for someone who really needs to recover).
2002-02-04 08:03:35 AM  
Fark crap like 'MVVD' try for all your Vocabulary needs.
2002-02-04 08:19:58 AM  
so what is the definition of a 'mini-me'?
2002-02-04 08:41:55 AM  
Stebain: this is close-

[image from too old to be available]
2002-02-04 08:42:14 AM  
"mini-me" is a word? Why not add 'buttwipe' 'asshead' 'buttmunch' 'honk-if-you-love-jesus' or 'we-ran-out-of-new-words-so-we-made-this-one-up'
2002-02-04 09:56:18 AM  
Can we get "sheezie my neezie" in there? What abot "hizzouse?" Oooh... playa, that must be added.
2002-02-04 10:19:20 AM  
They forgot "hormone-head" (a liberal) and "glander" (non-thinker; feeler; Barbara Streisander)
2002-02-04 11:09:07 AM

2002-02-04 11:40:31 AM  
They didn't add "Fark" or "w00t"!
2002-02-04 11:42:45 AM  
What about 'Bleen'? That's the new number between five and six...
2002-02-04 12:31:20 PM  
Ouro, mandatory Coffee/Soda-on-Screen explanation required...

Can someone explain MVVD please, I never heard of that one before... An MVVD is human,MeepMeep
2002-02-04 12:38:24 PM  
Yeah, umm.... It's not gas, and it doesn't have to come from just se6x. It is caused by a woman's opening and closing of the vagiOna, which can happen during any kind of lower-body/abdominal movement (e.g. sit- ups, laying on back w/leggs in air, being in the "doggy-style" position, or squating). It is most common when the woman's lower back is horizonal and she is not completely sitting or standing up. Yes, women do it (some more than others), and it should be remembered that it is not gas, but simply air, and does not smell.
I, unfortunately, am quite prone to it. grr!

Thank you, Helena.

Ignisecond (n) ig-nee-sekund

That fraction of time between slamming your car door and realizing "Hey! My keys are in there!"
