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.




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!


Well, folks, we only had one player this week WHERE WERE YOU??? And she takes the Silly Goose as well as the Smarty Pants.

Imbroglio is a mess or disturbance, a SNAFU; sometimes a political scandal or situation.

Immane - Hmm..not sure, so I'll try for funny on this one.

Immane - Ghetto slang for "him ain't": I'se goin' to th' likker store, but immane; 'e's too stoned to drife.




Now come on people!! We must dethrone the reiging champ here!!


Official Definitions:
immane 1) vast enormous 2) inhumanly cruel

imbroglio 1) a misunderstanding or disagreement of a complicated or bitter nature 2) an intricate and perplexing state of affairs 3) a confused heap.

Well, it ain't as much fun to win when you're playing solo. :o(

Virago I know - it's a quarrelsome, harping woman.

Viridity - hmmm....Let's see...

A cross between virility and rigidity. I'll let you draw your own conclusions as to whether you qualify or not, LOL! ;o)

Actually, I think viridity is truthfulness, as in, "Sources checking the viridity of the story confirm that the facts are true."

Hmmm--I hope Dianne's wrong about viridity--and that she's thinking "veracity" for truthfulness.

Because I like the other definition better. 8^)

Linda said...

Viridity - sort of like hereditary except it's reserved for we Virgos of the world!

Virago - again reserved for we Virgos, similar to vertigo but dizziness just for us!

I know - these definitions are horrible but they are the best I can do with one functioning brain cell this morning!

viridity-In the Greek(Verr-to ponder ones youth; id-self; ity- to isolate)this word in English is a private activity of youthful happiness.


virago-One who struggles with the blend "th"...this is a long drawn out thereyougo...in Southern.

My, my, my linguistic abilities are shining!
