It’s Fibbing Friday and it’s Frank’s turn. See this post on how to play and to link from that post, if joining in.
Frank is doing some more words for us to define.
- kinetoscope – give the telescope a shake, before looking through it to see the stars, because you have to do this to get it to work. I doubt it will take off.
- lugubrious – lubricating something silly
- maudlin – cousin to violin
- numismatics – exercising the brain with numbers
- opulence – cousin to flatulence
- prepubescence – pre-pub drink with a view.
- quixotic – a quick exotic drink
- recumbent – a posh word for bent cucumber
- stereoscope – telescope now in stereo, after kinetoscope failed to sell
- turgid – a posh word for turd
Thank you Frank for this fun game.
It’s Fibbing Friday and my post comes with a warning ⚠️ of rudeness. ☺️ Oh dear.
I took just a second looking at these words and my brain was being very rude with some of them. Which surprised me, with what is going on on for me at the moment.
I will try and keep it clean the best I can, (written as clean as I can, but not exactly original that my brain was thinking.) You have been warned. ⚠️
Fibbing Friday as you should know now, has been kept going by Di, at Pensivity101 and Frank, at Thoughts and Theories.
The idea is to fib a little, or a lot and Frank has come up with some unique words that need definitions for. The words are real words, Frank says. So when I have fibbed, I will look up these words after, to see what they actually mean. Going to learn something today.
To see how to play and if you are joining in, linking back to Frank’s post here, for today’s Fibbing Friday.
- Aglet – An old chicklet.
- Befuzzle – The mood someone is in, prior to being muzzled.
- Crapulence – Verbal diarrhoea.
- Deluge – Junk mail.
- Erstwhile – Its short code, meaning keep Ernest waiting a while.
- Flatulence – Flat wind.
- Gabardine – Gabby gabby.
- Heliostat – Helicopter feeling very hot.
- Ignominy – An igloo cheating behind an igloo’s back.
- Joculator – A new form of foreplay, with a jockey.
It’s Fibbing Friday and I wasn’t going to do it originally with how I feel this week and what has been going on. Be here I am with it.
The idea with Fibbing Friday is to fib a little, a lot, tell whoppers, be inventive, silly or even outrageous, in your response and evade the truth. Fibbing Friday has been kept going between two bloggeres, Di and Frank.
There’s a book theme going today, that Di has done for today’s.

1. War and Peace – A majority of trying to keep the peace, but Trump creating a war.
2. The Green Mile – I can think of two versions. One being me rapping to Eminem tune, (in your dreams) down a painted green street. Or and this cones as a warning, ‘aeroplane,’ as they call it if you was a kid who wipped their snotty nose on their sleeve. 🤢
3. Dances with Wolves – Me dancing while howling.
4. Jaws – Watch it. I’ll bite your head off.
5. The Wind in the Willows – Me farting in the reeds, to frighten a passer by.
6. The Deserter – Oh how I want t to be one. But never do in the end.
7. One Shot – One shot for Sylvester to finally get Tweetie Pie, before he retires. Oh blimey, he should be retired, so he lost once again to that one shot.
8. It – Who is IT?
9. Independence Day – Let it be every day. Fingers stuck up to the dick heads…
10. The Count of Monte Cristo – I can’t think of an answer.

2. Why do vampires not like garlic?
It masks there own smelly breath.
3. Why are individual cakes called Fairy Cakes?

Depends if you give them wobbly eyes.
