Balderdash (10)

Word Verification Balderdash

is a weekly meme hosted by Sheila at One Person's Journey Through a World of Books.

This is very easy to do.
If you comment on blogs you can do this too.

Write down all the word verifications you get while posting comments on other peoples blogs.

You then play Balderdash with them.

In case you don't know how to play, you take the made up word and come up with an authentic sounding definition for it.

Do this for a week and then post your best or favorite ones every Thursday.

Here are mine for this week:

capperym - is a large beautiful flower found on rare occations around waterfalls. These flowers need lots of water and so far only have been seen in a light, pale yellow and a delicate, soft orange.

asape - is a relative of the small monkey which is from Asapia. These monkeys are friendly so they have been captured and killed for their hide by poachers.

mings - is a fuzzy, rare animal that is long, thin and has a long tail. These animals hide from the daylight and any sound it hears. They live in woods and are rarely ever seen by the eye, only a few hidden cameras have caught a glimps of this cat like creature at night.

thypic - an herb found high in the mountains that helps with pain. This herb is kept secret by the inhabitants of the Thylaa Mountains since it has to be searched for and handled very carefully to get the best results.


  1. asape from the monkeys of Asapia is awesome! Great words this week! :)

  2. Such a shame to hear that the asapes are being killed off by poachers. Think my favorite is capperym, as I love orange flowers.

    Really like the way your words have a common theme this week! :)

  3. Love the whole biology thing you have going on with this week. Great words!

  4. Sheila - Asape are the cutes things they are just so friendly. lol. Glad you liked them.

    Alexia - it is a tragedy to be losing this poor creatures. I am so glad you love the flowers, I like the orange ones better too. Didn't even realize I had a theme thing going till now. Thanks!

    Ryan - I didn't even realize I had a biology theme even going this time around. Weird how things like that happen. I guess I got stuck in a single frame of mind. Oh well, I think it worked out for this week. Thanks!

  5. I like thypic! Any idea what thypic tastes like?

  6. Hi La Coccinelle. I am thinking bitter, very bitter. It makes your mouth water along with your eyes when you take it. It almost chocks you. lol! It must work really good if it is that bad tasting.

  7. Very cute, nature-themed words, Melissa. I love orange &/or yellow flowers;-)

  8. These are some interesting words you had to type. Good job with the definitions. :)

  9. Hi Jackie - Its funny when you get on a kick you don't realize it till someone mentions it. I hadn't realized I was on a nature theme, but it all worked out well.

    Hi Jessica - I am starting to think all the words we type are really neat. Thanks for the complement!

    Hey Krista - Glad to see you stopped by. Thanks! Hope all is going well and will smooth out for you soon. See ya around!

  10. Thanks for another interesting comment on Catching Fire. :) I love talking books!
