I’m at work waiting for the IT department to figure out an issue with my computer. While waiting I check my e-mail, nothing in my box. I check my cell phone for missed calls or text messages, nothing there either. Then I look up the word dingleberry.
This is what I found:
A small clot of dung, as clinging to the hindparts of an animal. I found this in the Encyclopedia Britannica.
A piece of dried feces caught in the hair around the anus. An incompetent, foolish, or stupid person. I found this in an American Heritage Dictonary.
The reason why I looked up this word you may ask? Well for one I was bored and for two this is what we (my husband and I) used to call BM. The funny thing is (although not as fuuny now since it has a real “nasty” meaning) that I thought I made up the word dingleberry!
This was a funny post. When my husband,kids and I are bored we google random words too…a cheap and educational form of entertainment! hehe
I know right? My brother was drinking one night at a party and told this girl he was from Namibia. Everyone thought this was hilarious when he started acting like he “spoke the language.” Come to find out, Namibia is a country in southern Africa. He didn’t just “make it up.” I also saw Namibia march in opening night at the Olympics and I called my brother so he could catch it.
I’ve heard the word Dingleberry before, but I never knew what it meant. Our dog gets dingleberries…and I never even knew it! 🙂
You are so crazy! No wonder you were giggling so bad last night thinking about this post. LOL
This is funny. And I think when the family is sitting around doing nothing and being bored, we’ll do what Stacy and her family does and google random words. That sounds like fun and I know my girls would enjoy it.
I’ve called people this before, but I didn’t know the “true” meaning. I’m pretty sure that wasn’t what I meant. 🙂
