Word verification Balderdash (12)

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. Happy Thanksgiving, and enjoy the family maraisin:

maraisin - noun - an activity performed by many members of a family (often on holidays) that involves hoisting an overweight matriarch from her easy chair

matorbo - noun - a rotund matador; often, matorbos are paired with obese bulls for a more fair fight

nonacs - plural noun - buildings that have no air conditioning

orapping - noun - a form of inner-city rap that evolved in the villages of Ireland; orapping is often accompanied by the uillean pipes and a bodhrán or two

reatch - verb - to reach down your throat with a long object to trigger the gag reflex

vitato - noun - a type of potato, known for its vibrant flavour, that is used to make a 100-proof wine


  1. Vitato sounds yummy, if I was 10 years younger. Great words this week. I didn't have time this week but I'm ready for next week.

  2. Maraisin - that is too funny! I will have to see what words I get this week and see if I can join in.

  3. I got a great chuckle out of maraisin. I know we have to help our selves. I loved that!

    Vitato sounds like it could be something nice to share around the holidays. Some of the family members could use a good stiff drink to loosen up. lol!

    Great words this week! I will be back with words next week.
