Dazed and confused? Not me. I’m just Lost in the Cheese Aisle.

Yet more stuff that should be in the dictionary but isn’t.

Long-time readers of my previous site may recall the Blog d’Elisson Dictionary, installments of which may be found in that site’s Archives.

For other entries in the Cheese Aisle Dictionary, simply click on the sidebar link for Cheese-Dic.

Today’s Word of the Day comes to us courtesy of El Capitan over at Baboon Pirates. It meets - nay, exceeds - all of the criteria for inclusion in the Cheese Aisle Dictionary: It is a new coinage, it is useful, it is funny... and in this case, it has the added bonus of being disgusting. Score!

fartspatter [färt-spa-tər] (n) - 1: Unwanted side effect of flatus whilst urinating in a state of nekkidness: What should end up as a skivvie-skidmark instead speckles the shower curtain. 2: Excess work for employees generated due to the rantings of minor-level elected officials (city councilmen, aldermen, et al.) in an effort to increase their stature.

“When Councilman Anders started pounding on the desk and demanding answers, the records clerks knew they’d be in the office cleaning up the fartspatter until the wee hours.”
