This is a text only thread which means I need you to either type in the words you want or copy and paste them in. This is because it allows visually impaired people or people who find it difficult to look through pictures eg too many colours, to take part.

Ha ha, I have a great new word to use now!

Though my top funny word is still 'discombobulated', which means 'confused or disconcerted' according to the Oxford English Dictionary - it may well be a state that many Ouchers find themselves in from time to time...

Discombobulated is an excellent word indeed  >thumbsup<

I like 'Corridoo' from the Meaning of Liff (where placenames are repurposed to describe things that don't otherwise have names).  I can't remember the precise definition, but this is vaguely what I think it means:

Corridoo - that moment when two people approach one another in a corridor and have to decide when to acknowledge each other (too late and they seem rude, too early and they seem silly having to smile and wave at each other for a long time)  >lol<

Another one from Pinterest.

I was going to take over the world this morning but I overslept so it is postponed again.

Midding


v. intr. feeling the tranquil pleasure of being near a gathering but not quite in it—hovering on the perimeter of a campfire, chatting outside a party while others dance inside, resting your head in the backseat of a car listening to your friends chatting up front—feeling blissfully invisible yet still fully included, safe in the knowledge that everyone is together and everyone is okay, with all the thrill of being there without the burden of having to be

May be triggering



I worn something from 5 years ago and it still fits, so I am proud of myself.

It was a scarf but let's look at the positive.

A man's been drinking at a pub all night. The bartender finally says that the bar is closing. So the man stands up to leave and falls flat on his face. He tries to stand one more time, same result. He figures he'll crawl outside and get some fresh air and maybe that will sober him up.

Once outside he stands up and falls flat on his face. So he decides to crawl the 4 blocks to his home. When he arrives at the door, he stands up and falls flat on his face. He crawls through the door into his bedroom. When he reaches his bed, he tries one more time to stand up. This time he manages to pull himself upright but he quickly falls right into bed and is sound asleep as soon as his head hits the pillow.

He awakens the next morning to his wife standing over him shouting loudly. "So, you've been out drinking again!!" "What makes you say that?" He asks as he puts on an innocent look.

"The pub called, you left your wheelchair there again."
