Balderdash

We just had the largest gathering ever held at a BK abode. There were eight adults and four children, including us. It was a bit nervousing, just because I'm not too keen on hosting parties or being in large groups, but it was fun. We chatted for a bit, had a lesson by Hugh B. Brown--oh, I mean Braden--, and then played some Balderdash. Here are some of the best entries of the night:

SWEDGE - The ebonics version of "so what are" as in "Swedge ya doin'!"
NABOB (which someone misspelled as NABOOB, causing much laughter as it was discovered just now) - To see or hear a strange voice. ("Uh oh, I'm seeing voices again!")
LIBLAB - A chemistry lab at Evergreen State College (For those who don't know, ESC is well-known for being extremely liberal. Most students have alternative lifestyles and clothing, and you can usually spot a "Greener" just by what they are wearing)
CHORALCELO - Italian for an obnoxiously loud male singer
DAK - A thin layer of foam built up on the back of a turtle's shell (This, rather surprisingly I think, got three votes. I heard "foam" and "turtle's shell" and was like, What??)
DAK - An Australian expression used in place of a profanity. (DAK! OH, DAK!)
DAK - An X-wing pilot who dies stupidly on the planet Hoth. (That was me. Thank you. Thank you very much-a.)

Braden peed his cords laughing at the last one, because he was thinking how funny it would be if the real definition included the adverb "stupidly".
