I'm foompled!

Just saw a word verifier: foompled. I love it. Any suggestions for what it could mean?

I shall make it my New Year resolution to see foompled included in the next edition of the OED.

To foomple.

To be foompled.


'George, do stop foompling!'

Thanks for popping in to mine! You do know that you've now given 'froompled' provenance and can get it in the dictionary. Get on to ' Balderdash and Piffle' at once! Go froomple your finding!

I think it means confused...

I Googled 'foomple'. Here's one of the results I got:

Suburbia said...

I knew I felt a bit something and that is just the word for it!

Froompled, I must use it more often!!

I've always loved nonsensical-sounding words. One of my favorites is 'gobsmacked' which I know is popular in the UK but not well known on this side of the pond. I just love words, period.

I think I spend a lot of time foompling, although I'm not sure what it is:)

Word verifier must be in a silly mood tonight; I've seen some strange ones today, although I recognized "butch" over at Suburbia's:)

It seems the word verification is actually looking more like words these days. At Welshcakes I got one that was positively Italian but I did not recognize it.

I am trying to keep calm, but the boys keep foompling each other around the head with stuff.

foomple, great word. wonderful word. It goes well with:


and erm


Foomple away Liz, the world needs more foompling.


Aileni said...

You see, it means misspelt.

Etymology 101 :-

Foomple: scottish pronounciation
of the english word 'fumble'. Thus an adjective describing the way the welsh play rugby ;-)
The syllable 'foo', sometimes transliterated as 'fu' , is the chinese word for 'happiness' (true)
