"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.
