Love it!! Especially since the rhyme is hidden. You've got that "lish" in Malische rhyming with the translation of fish embedded.

And it also looks like a musical term. In fact, when I first read it I wondered what strange musical term might it be. There are so many abstreuse musical terms! I'll list a few that probably most folk don't know even though pezcyclando isn't among them:

afflito

affannoso

alla caccia

alterreza

...and those are just some I've marked from the "A" section of the music dictionary.

I'll bet if some composer spotted pezcyclando, there could follow a composition in which the musical directive would be pezcyclando--and then the musicians would have to talk about what they needed to do to produce music that conveyed the feeling of a fish on a bike.

Again, love Malische Pezcyclando!

Off my little box,

Ok- I liked Pezcyclando but I took it in the noun form instead of the verb. I don't know if it makes any sense, but making sense wasn't part of the requirements. It sounds cool and has internal rhyme (in both languages.)

Thanks for your help everybody!

Fish, you can pick up your prize from me later.

Honoured, JW - although of course, consuelo and WW should take most/all of the credit. Then again, what's the prize?

I think it is a noun, already: "cycling fish" in effect.

I just tried to bring up the page you posted, Josie, but it wouldn't go through. The short link page came up, but then the full link took me to the page that tells you the page isn't available. What goes?

my check for Pezcyclando©

Oops, does this mean that I should be paying royalties for all uses of the term, consuelo? Damn, and I wanted to mention it on my website too

Speaking of which, I could probably stash your Malische image on my site, JW. Let me know by PM, and we'll sort it out.

Mind you, it'll probably take another six months before I get around to applying the updates...
