In A Word

I had a word earlier that, when you sit and think of it in your head over and over, it begins to sound really stupid. You know what I mean? There are many words that do this, however, such as simply, "Mayonnaise". Try it, just think of some normal everyday word, repeat it over and over to yourself until you say, "What the hell?? This word makes no sense and sounds like jibberish."

It's really weird. Still, I am very mad that I took a hot bath and in becoming so relaxed, I totally lost the word I was going to use for this post.

Nevertheless, I have found something way more disturbing and disgusting. I was thinking about the movie "Wayne's World", well actually the SNL sketch it stemmed from, where Wayne used the word "Mung". I thought Mung was supposed to just describe something utterly disgusting, some gross unknown substance. Well, it sort of does, but then if you check the Urban Dictionary Descriptions, it goes way deeper and sicker than I really imagined.

Really, go read if you dare.

Anyway, I thought I would just leave you with those thoughts for a Sunday evening, along with This Video (one more little tribute to HST), which should bring a little of the happy back from discovering Mung. Go Ether!

"The Ether Scene from Fear and Loathing In Las Vegas"

Ewww .. that's gross. Munging should be illegal. ;-)

HA! I have done that before, making a word more rhythmic than logical, stripping it of meaning.

Mung, um yeah.

Christ G-Man...for one awful second I thought it was munging you'd done before!!!

Anyone for munging?

I'll try that at work when I'm back on Wednesday...

eh! maybe I can still get a blow job after I've snuffed it eh? ;-)

That is quite the dictionary. I think the Urban part refers to legend?

From the Concise Oxford: (in full mung bean) a leguminous plant, native to India and used as food.

I know, I'm no fun.
