A new favorite, courtesy of tswum:

aeolist

I actually considered changing my handle to this, but didn't want to start again as a stranger.

queer -- I never thought about how common it is -- (should have know it was an easy task-- I thought of two right away!)

shall we play with it for a while-- and then go on to 4 vowels in a row? ---like the beheaded words--are there any 4 vowels in row? (i think so...) or Double u's-- and see what we can come up with? -- or maybe bonus points for words that have double sets of 3 vowes in a row-- only the points don't mean anything-- they are just there for fun!

I'm going to presume its english-- but just what are you doing to/with/like an eel?

it's a word of some dubiousness which has nothing whatsoever to do with eels, but rather means "good, perhaps very good".
