My occasionally snarky thoughts on everything from motherhood, politics, life and current events. Cocktails are sometimes mandatory. Bottoms up!

Og's Right....

Sometimes these freekin' Brain Benders are just lame. Lame-o. Lame-o-rama-lama-ding-dong even.

As Og said in a recent Brain Bender comment:

You need a way to put spoilers in. Like a blackout. Anyway, I'll leave this one for someone else.
He's right, I think. We need to shake things up a bit. So today (just for the hell of it) along with the regular winner of the smartypants sticker, kudos will go also to the person that submits the most creative non-word and definition. Hey, use it in a sentence even. We all need a new word once in a while!

Here is today's (lame-o) question from the handy dandy discount MENSA calendar:


How many rather unusual English words can you make from the letters below, using all five letters once in each word? What are the words?

A - G - O - R - T


Okay. Like always, answers will be found in the comments later. Made-up words can be used more than once with alternative definitions or creative sentence use. Have fun and I'll see you later!

Update: Okay, so today's official smartypants sticker goes to Dash (from The Boiling Point) for giving us the only "official" MENSA answer - and I like his definition better than the real one!

Groat (n) :the process of growing (in the New Jersey vernacular).
(Real definition: An English silver coin worth four pence, used from the 14th to the 17th century.)

And creative kudos go to Og (the Neanderpundit) for this entry:

Goart: (n) a small pendulous growth located on the rectal tissues of amphibious creatures. Sometimes referred to as the plug that makes a frog's ass watertight. "to hell with caviar, I've got a four ounce tin of south african curare frog goarts in my fridge"
Honorable mentions are as follows: Rave from Quid Nunc and Rachel from Pereiraville. :-)

The other "official" answer was ARGOT (Definition: A specialized vocabulary or set of idioms used by a particular group: thieves' argot.)

Thanks for playin' everybody!
