WAGGLUTINATE - Twerking gone wild.

A couple who lived in New Delhi
Had to walk around belly to belly

...Because, in their haste,
...They reached for the paste
Instead of the vaginal jelly!

KABUKI

PRONUNCIATION: (kah-BOO-kee, KAH-boo-kee)

MEANING:
1. A form of Japanese drama that includes highly stylized movements, dances, singing, and miming, and all parts are played by males.
2. Done for the show only; make-believe.

ETYMOLOGY:
From Japanese kabuki, from ka (song) + bu (dance) + ki (skill). Apparently this is a reinterpreted form of the verb kabuku (to lean, deviate, or act dissolutely). Kabuki is the popular form of the older Noh, the classical drama of Japan. Earliest documented use: 1899.
