Default Words that make you laugh...


What words have you come across in your life that make you laugh, for whatever reason; what they mean, what they sound like, because they're spelled strangely?

When I was little a friend of my mum's used to make what he called 'Bobulator' pie

There is a word I recall finding completey by accident in the dictionary. It describes little globuals of poo that stay stuck around the anus after you go to the toilet. The word was cool, although for the life of me I can't remember what it was, but the meaning makes me feel sick. And now I've share with all of you too! Sorry

No, that's not it, although very fitting...

Perhaps I can google it.

Polyps. He he. Not as funny as it sounds though - they should really find a more serious name.

Only when my husband says it, but my weird funny word is phenomenon.

We always look at each other and say "menomenah."

World's lamest inside joke... I don't even know what started it. A commercial or something.

All words that make me laugh are insulting words. Chicken-shit. Rat-bastard. Numb-nuts. I love these words. They are so freaking funny, and I use them a lot.

Tax Exemption (Spongebob reference. Yes, I'm 18. No, I have no shame.)

Uhh... oh! My cousin is completely ignorant, so he thinks the phrase is Copyright Infragmentation. That is GREAT.

I love the word discombobulation. I loved the bit in Sherlock holmes when he said "Then block his blind jab, counter with cross to left cheek. Discombobulate."

Why are all these words more of the kind you would snicker at?

Well, at least I have one of those too

Oh, is it? I don't even remember, lol.

My family has also turned Hola into an inside joke, so every time they say it - with the right voice inflection - they can make me laugh. Even if I'm mad.

That's from a cell phone commercial. The mom takes a second job to pay for the kids's cell phones. She has to dress up as a taco, and she looked pissed! Then the dad walks in, and sees her that way and says, "Hola!" All happy. I laugh every time, so my kids have learned to use it against me.
