Word verification Balderdash (16)

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:

ambst - noun - the painful reluctance to getting out of a chair
one feels after eating a huge turkey dinner; it is a portmanteau of "ambulatory" and "angst"

holvaggi - noun - a type of sausage made with pork, blackcurrants, and saffron that is traditionally used to make stuffing; holvaggi is popular in Finland (where it originated), but also in Argentina, South Korea, and Namibia

lachmall - verb - to figuratively tie yourself to the mall until all your Christmas shopping is finished

outhe - interjection - an expression of pain by a child who has lost their two front teeth and is waiting for Santa to bring them some new ones

prizie - noun - a slang term for a gift that is won in a contest (such as a fruit basket) that has excellent regifting potential; it is a portmanteau of the slang term "pressie" and the word "prize"

Raphauxp - proper noun - a Renaissance artist whose claim to fame was painting scenes depicting the ancient Roman festival of Saturnalia

Here's wishing everyone a Merry Christmas!


  1. Love those definitions! I definitely recognize a couple from my own verification adventures. I'm also strangely hungry for some holvaggi!

    My verification word: scuthet. A particularly dirty epithet (as in scuzzy + epithet). *smile*

  2. Great words! I love how you mixed in some of the holidays.

    I have to say I know of a few people who were lachmall... however I was not one. Outhe, I think some kids have done this just so they could sing the song. lol Great job with the words!
