A beautiful pun. I'm surprised more people haven't voted here, but with the downfall of civilization and all, I suppose it's possible. - Maxine, 2008-02-21: 19:55:00

You're so right Maxine! Until I thought about it half the day ... I missed the 'ought' in twat ... even though I read the pronounciation several times! Great blending and pun on H2ought, galwegian ... not only your sentence, but your verbot had a great ending and devserved more of a vote! Brilliant! - silveryaspen, 2008-02-21: 21:00:00

Perhaps if the etymology had read haitch too ought ... More of us would have caught on ... or caught on sooner! - silveryaspen, 2008-02-21: 21:13:00

Wish you had finished and given us a sentence and etymology. Your verboticism is good, but it would be better if you polished it off with the rest! - silveryaspen, 2008-02-21: 21:04:00

Pronunciation: /ˌhaɪdɹəˈfɪliæk/

Sentence: Severe hydrophiliacs run a risk of hyponatremia or at least of peeing their pants. As the saying goes, "Drink like a fish; piss like a horse."

Etymology: from hydro- + philiac


Too easy, I know. - ErWenn, 2008-02-21: 00:08:00

Maybe it was easy for you, but I'd have never thought of it! When I read it I erupted in loud laughter! You have taken gross humor to new heights ... or should I say watery depths! Kudos for your extraordinary sentence and an ingenious verbot! Excellent! - silveryaspen, 2008-02-21: 02:17:00

how much water would it take to hydro fill a yak? very nice! - galwaywegian, 2008-02-21: 06:22:00

Splendiferous verboticism!! - Mustang, 2008-02-21: 07:20:00

The "too easy" was referring to the word. I've always been a bit of a liquiphiliac (though my drink of choice used to be soda, before my dentist showed me what I was doing to my walle-I mean teeth), so I've had years to refine that fish/horse joke; if it's not funny, I need a new hobby. - ErWenn, 2008-02-21: 21:25:00

Excellent. - OZZIEBOB, 2008-02-22: 00:11:00

Pronunciation: /uh-KWAIR-ee-ass/

Sentence: Lisa carried that stupid water bottle with her everywhere — even when they went out for lunch. Carl told her, "I'm sure they have Coke or tea here, Lisa. You don't need to bring your own drink." Lisa replied, "My body needs water to stay hydrated. I am an Aquarius, you know." Rolling his eyes, Carl thought to himself, 'You mean an Aquariass, don't you?'

Etymology: Aquarius - eleventh sign of the zodiac; the Water Bearer (Latin literature, "water carrier") + ass - a stupid, foolish, or stubborn person (from Old English, assa "donkey")

Pronunciation: high dro jents

Sentence: Freddie always thought himself as one of life's hydrogents. He enjoyed his bottle of water everywhere and while recycling 64 ounces of the fluid behind a tree in the park, accidentally exposed himself to a policeman. It was then he realized that you don't buy the bottle of water, you only rent it. It was also then that he finally realized why his co-workers nicknamed him Liberace...because he was the peeanist in the group!

Etymology: hydrogen (H2O) & gentleman (man of refinement)


Very elegant! - but what about people with different hydrogenitalia? (And what about that Oxygen atom?) Nevertheless, your snazzy creation snares my vote. - Maxine, 2008-02-21: 08:14:00

Also a great pun on the word hydrojets! A water-deflying peeanist escaping from the cops! Excellent humor! Extraordinary verbot! Excellent! - silveryaspen, 2008-02-21: 13:38:00

Cheers, Maxine & silveryaspen! It is the origin of the phrase: "Water you in for"? - Nosila, 2008-02-21: 19:56:00

You're on a roll! When it come to word fun ... your tops! - silveryaspen, 2008-02-21: 21:09:00

I've spent most of my life in the desert (16 years in Nevada and 8 in Arizona), so where I come from, this sort of behavior is just common sense.

Jabberwocky - 2008-02-21: 09:12:00
I like the picture today James - it's closer to a cartoon

Verbotomy Verbotomy - 2008-02-21: 09:50:00
Thanks Jabberwocky. I'm having a little fun with the photos -- just to keep them light. And by the way, we're floating in great words today. Obviously everyone here is over-hydrated. ~ James

silveryaspen - 2008-02-21: 13:54:00
Every day there are so many brilliant and funny creations! Especially so today! Kudos to all you verbotomists!
