Word verification Balderdash (23)

This fun meme was started by Sheila over at One Persons Journey through a world of Books, and is now hosted by Ryan G of Wordsmithonia.
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:

dionster - noun - a mythical beast from Canadian folklore; the dionster has a deceptively beautiful voice that it uses to afflict its victims with earworms, leading to eventual insanity

ducon - noun - a person who has been conned twice by the same conman; ducons have never heard the saying, "Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me."

mesupe - verb - to fail with a certain amount of grace and class

outewn - verb - to have grossed someone out more than the last person who tried to do so

siakiero - noun - a spectacular fall during a downhill skiing race

somoopt - verb - to be physically exhausted by an activity that is not generally physically exhausting (such as wine-tasting or playing World of Warcraft)


  1. Siakiero and ducon are wonderful. Great words all round this week.

  2. Unfortunately, there have been quite a lot of siakieros yesterday in Vancouver... But thankfully all the concerned athletes mesuped.

    You've got an award waiting for you here !

  3. Excellent words! Love dionster, but I'm afraid to click the link for earworms in case I'm infected! *L*

    Actually experienced somoopt today while touching up some paint in the guest room, so glad that it has a name. :-)

  4. I am so sorry I am so terribly late. I am so far behind in reading posts lately.

    I love these words I think I like dionster. That sounds like an interesting character to read about. I bet he has created a lot of havic.

    Wonderful words as always!
