Alright! Today is the start of Dictionary Challenge Round 2! And last week’s winners sure have given you all a challenge. Before the words are revealed, let’s go back over the rules!

Objective: Come up with a crazy/creative definition for each of the three words listed. (Make sure it’s something completely original!)

Rule #1: Keep it clean and family friendly! 🙂

Rule #2: Have fun.

Remember, you can submit your answer anytime this week. The deadline is the 3rd of March (meaning, that’s the last day you can submit an answer!) You can also come up with as many entries as you’d like – the more the merrier! Now here are this round’s words:




The winner of this little game can choose one word for the next round, along with their definitions posted, and a link (in that post) to their blog. The people in second and third place can also choose the words that will be used for the next round. On Monday, I will send the people in first, second, and third place a congratulatory comment informing them of their win! 

I can’t wait to see what you all come up with! Enjoy your week!

    Well, Ray, as I have said I don’t officially do contests. However, once again, your chosen words got me going and I imagined a flouresent nose poking out at me at my doorstep, then potently hugger-mugging me into recognition of a favorite first cousin I had not seen in years. Must write a poem about this, yes I must!
