Got Your Game Faces on?

The Game: Balderdash…ish.

The Rules: Pick the definition that goes with the vocab word. If you don’t think it’s one of those choices, tell me what you think the definition is (that’s what the D space is for!) You all have until 5pm on Monday, 10/27 to submit your answers. Either leave a comment or email me at to let me know your answers.

Scoring: If you pick the right definition or I think your made-up definition is funnier, you get a point. The person with the most points at the end of the game wins. And yes, this is all very subjective.

The Prize: Yes, you'll get one. Is your interest piqued?

Cheating: Don’t do it. If you cheat, I won’t know, but God will. And I can’t throw lightening bolts, but He can. So don’t cheat.

Disclaimer: This is a nerdy game. That's because I'm a nerd. Furthermore, I could try and be funny but I'm not altogether that humorous and believe me, it would suck more. So enjoy this for the dorky game that it is and good luck!

Ok, here goes

lacuna = D. a partial line from the spanish version of disney's Acuna matata. But actually A I believe from lake???

quondom = D. a mute question, a mixing of quandary and dumb. But just in case let's pick B. cause it comes after A.

lout = C. why not? D. John McCain

puissant = D. "piss ant" after having a tooth numbed. I'm going to go C though cause it reminds me of the rhetorical method of using a succession of "P" words to express power.

flack = D. a really bad piece of flair or A. cause I've heard this before, somewhere.

Lacuna - An aquatic underworld inhabited by goldfish, lizards, and sea monkeys.

Quondom - A

Lout - C

Puissant - C

Flack - a HomeStarRunner character that was developed but quickly discarded; the primary characteristic of this character and the one for which he went unused was the unpleasant flem that made it hard to understand his speech ;o)

P.S. You are fun, Sarah;o)

ahhh! I missed the deadline! And I really love balderdashish games!!
can you hear the gnashing of teeth?
another fun game would be to make up definitions for the word verification words. sometimes i read the dictionary and i don't apologize for that.
