I always wonder about the customer who comes to my shop with a cigarette, pulling the oxygen tank... and we're at 7,522ft above sea level.

You really don't want to breathe, do you?

glad I could kick that one off...

"World leaders spruik climate deal chances"

Is "spruik" the word Aussies use instead of "fark"?

spruik...NEVER heard of that word...looks up definition, dumb word.
 
2009-11-28 12:00:04 PM
I grok it.
 
2009-11-28 12:00:59 PM
Well, there's a real word I'll never see again.

FarkProudly: spruik...NEVER heard of that word...looks up definition, dumb word.

Tonight's 'Spectrum' examines the whole question of frothing and falling, coughing and calling, screaming and bawling, walling and stalling, brawling and mauling, falling and hauling, trawling and squalling, and zalling. Zalling. Is there even a word zalling? If there is what does it mean? If there isn't what does it mean? Perhaps both, maybe neither. What do I mean by the word 'mean'? What do I mean by the word 'word'? What do I mean by 'what do I mean'? What do I mean by 'do' and what do I do by 'mean'? And what do I do by do by do and what do I mean by wasting your time like this? Good night.

That's a trespilacious word!

spruik = orate, elaborate speech
 
2009-11-28 12:10:12 PM
I must say, that was quite... scrumtrulescent...

"Also spruik Zarathustra" doesn't have quite the same aura.

Sometimes she likes me to spruik on her stomach.
 
2009-11-28 12:12:36 PM
I'm a farker, I don't have a volc...volcab...long list of words to use!
 
2009-11-28 12:14:27 PM
Easy to understand. Spruik, as in, "In an unguarded moment, the thespian spruiked that she was raised by philatelists with numismatic tendencies..."

What about the Surprise Spruiker?

I spruik. Anyone got a towel?

"This here is the wattle; it's the emblem of our land,
you can stick it in a bottle, or you can hold it in your hand, amen, crack a tube."
 
2009-11-28 12:57:39 PM
It may be a bit overly spruiky, but it does have a certain truthiness to it.

Totally smurfy.

Where are the charts and graphs?

This is a rather cromulent climate change thread without charts and graphs.

Ups to subby on the grounds of cromulence.
 
2009-11-28 01:30:35 PM
I've been kicked in the spruik.
 
2009-11-28 01:36:00 PM
I'd have called them chaz wozzers.
 
2009-11-28 01:57:42 PM
I didn't say Zork.

Australia has learned to imitoot us exarctly!
 
2009-11-28 04:31:56 PM
It's a made up Aussie word like

Bowser
Billabong
Slab of beer
Abbo?

...so they tanned his hide when he died, Clyde
and that's it hangin' on the shed
ALL TOGETHER NOW!

Subby is an idiot, should go to dictionary.com and look up the word 'spruik'.

Yes, that's right, it's an actual word. Buy this word and we'll throw in a free set of steak knives!
