Word verification Balderdash (6)

This fun meme is hosted by Sheila over at One Persons Journey through a world of Books.
This is the weekly meme where anyone who wishes to play along can take those crazy word verifications they have had over the past week and apply a fake definition to them (much like how you play the board game Balderdash).

Here are this week's words:

ababutin - noun - a brain chemical that, when out of balance, predisposes people to obsessions with 1970s Swedish pop groups

alaersec - noun - an additive used in alcoholic beverages that provides the "dry" taste

conalist - noun - a person who studies the geometry, strength, and efficiency of ice-cream cones

glatios - noun - a muscle in the face, primarily responsible for creating dimples in the cheeks

rhyrmi - noun - a very short rhyme, consisting of two or fewer words (the difficulty of producing a one-worded rhyme has led to the near extinction of the rhyrmi as a form of poetry)

vintsh - adjective - a portmanteau of "vintage" and "kitsch", used to refer to anything old and tacky


  1. I think this is the best meme I've ever seen!! I love it. I love Balderdash. I wish I could get rid of word verification on my blog, but each time I do, I get spam. Grr. I'm going to take it off for readathon, though.

  2. Awesome words this week. I love them all. Vintsh, lol I have seen things that this would fit to perfectly!

    All the words are great this week!

    If you would like to stop by I just got my list up.

  3. I think my husband should have been a conalist. :)

  4. Here's a well-known vintsh rhyrmi written by a conalist who had added some alaersec in his wine :

    Oh Teapot.

    This guy must definitely know how to make his ababutin and glatios work.

  5. Wonderful words this week! So glad to know that my teenage obsession with Abba was an actual medical condition. Wonder where I can get a conalist degree, as I think that may be my life's calling! :)
