"To know only English it to narrow your horizons" (me) grin

As I said, I heard this word on TV last week and looked it up. Its not mentioned in onelook.com but it is a genuine word.
I like the meaning so much and think we should adopted it immediately, into the English language.

GIGIL

Send your best daffynitions to Candy (via PM) and I will see that it happens!

PS...if you are new to the game of hogwash, and want to play, ask your questions here.

Love it. I will be sending you a daffynition, but it always takes some rolling around in my brain before I come up with something that no one votes for.

It will take me the full week. This is the first hogwash word that does not look like a real word to me. Of course all words are real but I mean like it would not be in any dictionary at all whatsoever. Still I will treat it as seriously as all bygone HW words. (Let bygones be bygones)

All I know down the street there is hogwash a carwash I pass by this place on my way work and in the mood to avoid the hard-sellers at Danny's, I thought I'd try this place out.

Thanks for this timely remonder, tsuwm. You have saved me from re-using "sweven." which I was considering as a possible next hog-word

It might be expeditious, Mister Faldage, for you to stop annoying your cranky old subconscious and think instead with your Id. laugh

My cranky old subconscious likes doing this kind of stuff. It just takes its own sweet time doing it.
