    Want to play? Here are the rules:

    1. This is about defining words and redefining words. Vote on all of the three previous posts, whether you believe their definition for their word is the best one. If you do not think so, you must re-define the word for all of the definitions that you disagreed with. This is called 'Rolling over' the daffynition. If a word has already been Rolled Over then you must vote only upon that new definition. You may not insult another's definition but only vote yes or Rollover. You agree that anything you post in this thread you donate to the Public Domain, reserving no rights to your material.

    2. After you have voted on the three previous posts or redefined their words, propose your own. Either invent a word or look one up in the dictionary that sounds rare to you, preferably with an unexpected definition. Keep it business casual, either caring or pretending to care about other people at all times. Do not do anything that will get the thread closed!!! Also please only use English definitions. ("I'm sorry" for this limitation to those who know one of the more beautiful languages.)

    3. Propose your own word and provide a daffynition.

    Those are the rules.

    I don't have others to vote on yet...just yours...

    Daffynition - any definition that is better than what is in the dictionary.

    alla daffy duck I'm supposing...better than...or daffier than?

    Rollover - what you tell your dog

    only works if you've named your dog Ira.


    Agree - to submit to another's ideas

    and I thought that was a degree in agriculture.


    but how are these two?

    expedious .... a word between expedient and expeditious with the definition merged as well.

    ourcellves .... when referring to our macro on the micro level...

    ourcellves - when referring to our macro on the micro level while swimming in gelatin.

    Agree with all three, especially with the Agree since being a farmer often entails getting bossed around by the government.

    New word: particularliarious -- the tendency of some people to continually add in phrases like 'Basically' and 'In particular' for no apparent reason.
