Word o’ The Week VI

And last week’s winner is…Yost! His entry for the word mauliochness (noun) was:

A Swongzee-Tibetan word for manliness. Shen Zu thought that the monk’s charisma while decapitating enemies during battle epitomized the culture’s mauliochness.

Congratulations, Yost! Your prize this week is… a haiku, written by Feldman! (We’ll get that to you later on today or first thing tomorrow!)

And of course, we’ve got another word that needs some defining. It’s:
