New Definitions

I was catching up with some pre-Christmas editions of I’m Sorry I haven’t a Clue. I know I’ve written about the programme before, but is very funny. The opening round was New Definitions, new meanings for old words. Here’s a selection:

Pendulous: When you can put a pen under it and it stays there.

Psychopath: Crazy paving.

Mistake: Winner of a butchers’ beauty competition.

Gross mistake: Unlikely winner of a butchers’ beauty competition.

Decease: To stop stopping.

Pallisade: What the Queen drinks.

Margate: The mother of all scandals.

Sentiment: The perfume he intended to buy.

Postulate: The new name for the Royal Mail.

Deglaze: To stop watching Neighbours.

Decade: . (Brit tv thing.)

Wisp: A really pathetic wasp.

I think we have the basis of a good blogging game — any offers for new definitions? Here are a few of mine:

Behemoth: An uncontrollable urge to head-butt lightbulbs.

Ex officio: Disgraced Home Secretary.

Immaculate: To remove leg hair.

Impeccable: Couldn’t you just kiss him.

Mandate probably links to the latter, but I won’t go there. Contributions welcome.
