My Husband "Subvet" says that when our first son "Sonshine" was born the sun rose on our world, when our second son "Gator" was born the sun laughed and when our daughter "Sugars" was born all the flowers bloomed. That says it all.

Thesaurus Thursday, Answers, Winners, and Words

Just in case this is your first time by here on a Thesaurus Thursday, the "rules" of Thesaurus Thursday are as follows:

First and foremost, leave as many funny definitions for either word (or both) as you can think up in the comments!! The ones that make me laugh the hardest will be given the Silly Goose Award.

Last week's Silly Goose Winner is:

Linda - Muskeg - The knot on the side of a male muskrat's head that was given to him by a female muskrat when he made an improper move on her hoping she'd get a whiff of his muskellunge scent!

Cookie - Muskellunge- a leap made by a horny Muskrat.



Next, if you know (or think you know) the true definitions without looking them up then be sure and leave those in the comments too!! All definitions that are correct (or close enough for government work and Mighty Mom) will win the Smarty Pants Award!

MammyT knew muskeg and Diane J knew muskellunge



Official Definitions:
muskellunge - a large pike of the Great Lakes and Mississippi drainage.



muskeg - a bog of N North America, commonly having sphagnum mosses, sedge, and stunted black spruce and tamarack trees.

Well, I know that kaffeeklatsch is a group of people who get together to drink coffee and have pastries and such. I think it's German, but not really sure...

Kaon? Hmm...Sounds like somebody who can speak plainly trying to say "crayon". ;o)
