Word o’ The Week III

Congratulations to Paul Malewitz!! His entry for the word lopresinize (verb) was:

To surgically take the presidentialness out of head of state, usually with pliers which enter though the nose. After the former head of state was lopresinized, his speeches were less compelling and he often bled from his ears.

Now then. Let’s talk prizes.

Paul, when you get home, I’ll microwave you a burrito- how’s that sound?

Okay kids, this week’s word is:

Subchickler (SUB-shik-ler) noun

Let ‘er rip, guys! Send your submissions to liz@theproductivecough.com by noon on Thursday, August 6th. And of course, BONUS POINTS FOR USING IT IN A SENTENCE!


First time? Welcome! To play, simply send me in your made-up definition for this week’s word. If you use it in a sentence, Feldman and I will give you extra-credit! Thanks for playing!

Here are this week’s entries:

Louis Cole: One of those burps that is silent but makes your forehead wrinkle and your neck compress. They usually happen while you’re talking to somebody, and it makes your voice lower a little bit.
David Malloy: The 2nd level commander on a naval submersible vessel primarily in charge of all female troops.
Jody Feder: One who buys/sells/trades baby chickens for sport.
Josh Levitan: The small bit of skin between one’s little and “ring” toes. When Randolph stepped on the nail, it pierced his subchickler, and he cried out.
Chris Bulock: A man who wears a gray uniform and stocks gumball machines near weightwatchers locations with chicklets. Herman often thought of proposing to Sue Ellen, but he knew she would never marry a subchickler.
Lyn: Often mispronounced – the word is actually ‘sub-CHICK-ler’ – a noun meaning the name for a new teenager whose desire for cell phones, cell phone paraphenalia, wide leather belts, zit cream and purple highlights in otherwise gorgeous waist length hair announces the commencement of ‘Chickhood’. Happy Birthday, Nina!
Gina Barcenilla: A triumphant baby. Rejoice! A subchickler has appeared!
Christy Ciniglio: A sound system that can be surgically attached to chickens, so as they run around the music can be shared by all the people on the farm. Isn’t that nice? No, it barely hurts the chickens. Don’t even worry about it. They’re FINE. No, they LIKE it. Really.
