Word verification Balderdash (27)

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:

Blexuve - noun - a brand of disposable tissues; the name is pronounced BLESH-yoo (the "v" is silent)

boush - noun - a small, bushy beard worn on the chin; boushes are often fluffed up to make them more spherical

inessess - adverb - slang term for "in essence", used by people who don't really know what words they're saying; similar terms include the ubiquitous "wala"

Logyn - noun - a security feature on computers that allows only female users to access the machine; LoGyn is the brand name for a low-dose contraceptive pill (the two companies are currently in court, arguing over copyright issues)

nagist - noun - a person who discriminates against others based on whether or not they nag; nagists often don't like their own mothers

phicro - prefix - used to denote a very small amount; one phicrogram of a substance is little more than a homeopathic dosage


  1. I agree with Juju, nagists is awesome.

  2. Nagist is a great one! LOL. I like that one. I know of a few people who would fall in that category. Great words!
